Do you need a BFA/MFA degree to act? Nope. Will it help? Maybe…

I majored in both business and music in college. The business degree was my best decision for many reasons. Because of it I have been more successful than my colleagues who have either started the same time as I did or have been doing this much longer. Thanks to my business degree, I have been able to successfully market myself, network effectively, be more professional, avoid scams, know tax loopholes/write offs, etc. It has also helped me produce multiple streams of income so I can pursue acting because I enjoy it and NOT as a source of income.

This is called show BUSINESS, not show-screwing around.

Also, I believe college is about experiencing as much as you can. Audit as many classes outside of your major and get involved with campus activities. Part of acting is living the life. Get a rich college experience so you have a good story to tell through your experiences.

My beef is with year+ institutions like AADA and BFA/MFA programs is this. I believe in being more diverse in my training. The year+ programs can sometimes be like factories where they churn out actors who are taught pretty much the same thing through a structured curriculum. What might work for one person, will NOT work for a different person.

Also, a lot of the conservatories and BFA/MFA programs have strict policies such as NOT being able to audition outside of their school or study at other places simultaneously. I think this is limiting to the actor. The actor should have the freedom to audition for outside projects and add to the current curriculum.

Sharon asks…

Like famous acting schools. I live close to San Fransisco/Redwoodcity (If anyone knows where that is.) If you dont know any places do you know a place where I can look up this information (websites)
Thank you!!!

Others before me has already given the details about the practical aspect.
About the side of acting , I must have done hundreds of dramas,- English, French, Sanskrit, Gujarati, Bengali. I am not a brilliant and all staccatto , though I was known as veteran , the youunger ones very often wondered in the beginning what was the reason I was well known. It used to take time for me to warm, I was like a tube-light that took time to initially burn. However I alawys managed to concentrate even in the streets during those periods and slowly I was able to go ahead much faster than even the elder veterans. It is extremely important to feel yourselves in the shoes of the character that you were playing ,ie. Truly to get identified with it.
Probably 4or 5 times in my life I got identified in the character; and my lord the experience of it stays with you till the end of time.
I was doing a very small part of The Dansker in Billy Budd. I don’t know what happened, I just became the Dansker for those few moments. Everybody was of the single opinion that I had done the best in the play. For years together my director and the people had asked me what exactly had happened. The true solution is to concentrate, concentrate during the practice . And Lo ! The last day or sometimes the grand rehearsal day you are different, – that character!

Thomas asks…

Acting classes for teens in NYC?

For the past few weeks I have been searching the internet for acting classes/youth theaters in New York City. There have been a few programs I’ve found, such as Tada! (my high school schedule is too hectic), Stella Adler (can’t afford it right now), and CAP21 (sames as Stella), but I can’t join them. There are some programs I can’t research online, so does anyone have any ideas for acting classes/youth theaters in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or whatever borough? I really want to get some acting experience so I go to a great acting college/conservatory.

Daniel asks…

Any Classes for Voice Acting in New York (Near NYC)?

Ok I’m 13 years old turning 14 this year. And I really want to get into voice acting. Are there any schools besides ACTeen that could help me in voiceovers in New York? I really have dreamed of this and have made up my mind. If anyone knows of any decent voice-over programs for teenagers, in New York, please let me know!

admin answers:

Most voice acting is done by experienced actors. There is not much work for young teens. To succeed you will need the efforts of your parents to get you the training you need, make a demo and submit it to agents. You are too young to sign a contract and your parents have to do that for you. Better get them on board.
