How to play in a movie?

If you set yourself such a goal - to play in a film, then you can realize it. It is necessary to act as with any task - to draw up a phased plan of action, to develop several ways to achieve the desired.

How to play in the movie - options

The most reliable, but also a long way - is to study at the university in the specialty "acting" or acting classes, or at least a master class from an experienced teacher. Studying at the university will allow you to become better acquainted with the nuances of this profession, learn its pros and cons, and, perhaps, change the decision to become an actor. Maybe you will try an adjacent specialty, such as a director, cameraman, scriptwriter, costume designer, etc. If you are still a student, you can enroll in a drama school. The sooner you start to get the experience of playing on stage, the sooner you will develop as a professional actor.

If you want to play in a movie faster, then a higher education is not an option. But in this case there are several ways and they are ideally suited to people without experience.


Many famous actors began with the casting. So, Dmitry Khabensky accidentally got to the casting, where he was noticed - so he began his career. The main thing is to submit yourself correctly, to attract attention, to stand out from the crowd. But at the same time do not replay, stay yourself, even entering the proposed role. Be as natural as possible, do not pinch. The constraint is immediately noticeable - the actors do not need it. Learn more from our article How to get to the casting.

Shooting in advertising

You can start small. Having a role in advertising, you have a chance to be seen for movie movies. This is a useful experience that will reveal the shortcomings that need to be corrected - to learn to keep a more relaxed face in front of the camera, for example.

Portfolio is a must

Whether you are going to casting or you want to play in advertising, you will need a high-quality portfolio. Therefore, you should, first of all, visit the photo studio and take three pictures in several copies - a photo in profile, close-up on the shoulders and a photo in full growth. On the reverse side, enter your data - name, surname, contacts, education and experience, if any.

Do not create images in the photo - be yourself.Clothes - familiar to you, everyday, informal. Photos should be attributed to the assistants for the actors, team leaders of extras at film studios, in several advertising agencies.

Do not be discouraged if you are not immediately contacted - many people have been waiting for the first role for years. Do not stop trying, regularly try on the casting, improve your acting skills, engage in self-development, improve, including externally - then everything will work out.
