iPOP Tips: How to Set Yourself Up for Acting Success



Being in the show business can be stressful, intimidating, and challenging. But you don't have to do it all by yourself. We're here to help. Below are some tips to help set yourself up for acting success.


Network With Professionals

Making friends with other actors and directors is one of the most effective things you can do to land your next film or play. That is why talent conventions like iPOP are so essential to hyperdrive your goals of stardom. Remember, you're also building a career by becoming an actor. Therefore, you need to network with the right professionals in the entertainment industry so you can cultivate new friendships. At iPOP you not only meet with 100’s of entertainment industry professionals, but you also receive world-renowned training. Having both connections and professional training are the key to enhancing your acting skills and career pursuits.


Always Show Up on Time

Professionalism is vital in the entertainment industry. So if you have a scheduled audition, film set, or rehearsal, please ensure that you show up at least 15 or 30 minutes before your schedule. Tardiness may only compromise your chances of landing a more prominent role or becoming successful in the industry.


Keep Improving

One of the most effective ways to become a successful actor or land a bigger role is to keep improving your craft. Create a routine for your practice and ensure that you religiously adhere to it. For example, if you practice early in the morning, commit to your schedule as much as possible. Don't forget to show up every day. For your practice, consider reading scripts or incorporating voice work. We highly recommend that you take acting classes so that professionals can give you feedback on how you're doing and provide you with tips to become better at your skill. Remember, constant practice can help you win that big audition.


Seek Representation

If you're new in the industry, consider affiliating with a smaller acting agency to get audition opportunities. However, in choosing an agency, please make sure that they are reliable and trustworthy. Consider talking to actors who have worked with a particular agency and get some feedback. You may also consider getting a manager but keep in mind that they will be asking for a commission on your gross earnings. Speak with the right professional to help you make an informed decision on how to progress in your acting career.


Take Care of Yourself

Show business is a competitive industry. It may take time for you to land a role, and rejections (lots of them) are part of the game. It's essential that you take care of yourself, especially your mental health, to stay confident and to better handle criticisms or rejections. Don't hesitate to reach out to a professional if you need help with your acting career.
