ACTOR JOB

Introduction- What is Acting

Actors - job in films

 I  think that anything that is related to art or any other creative form is inborn within a personality.

The definition of art only tells that art is an inborn quality or a skill that is Mastered over a long period of time by practicing it and experimenting with different things or theories in it.

Acting is a job where you need to portray characters that are different from you. Acting also needs a good observance skill.

Usually, people think that acting is an easy job and one only needs to speak in a different way and act like someone else but that’s not the real game.

 Sometimes actors while giving a shot or a performance also inculcates their real-life experience and emotions to have a connection with that character. And this thing can be seen through the screen when the audience connects with the emotion and the journey of the character.

I feel that a person is to be a good actor when the people think that the character which is being depicted by the actor is the same in their real-life also. If you want to know more about some successful actors click here: Superstars of the Film Industry

Actors - job in film industry

Director is often called the captain of the ship. it’s because as a captain directs or decides the destination and the direction of the ship.

In the same way the director also decides the destination of the film and the way the pen would be presented.

According to my point of view a director is a Blend of an actor, editor,  cinematographer, costume design, etc.

  What does a Film Director do?

 In a nutshell this question means what are the roles and responsibilities of a film director. As I already told you the director is the captain of the ship.

So he decides the look of the film and many more things

In filmmaking there are three stages pre-production, production, and post-production and he is the only person who is involved in all three stages other than the producer.

The director plays an important role in casting the character of the film and he only gives the briefing of the character to the casting director.

In production the film is shot according to his vision only, in the post-production stage he sits with the editor and decides how the film is to be shown. Director is closely linked with the producer who sees the business of the films .

writer

1. What is Writing

In every film, the story is the most essential thing that has to be there and without that, the film is only a set of moving pictures. Writing is the most difficult part of the filmmaking process. The story is one of the conventions of film genres. To know more about film genres click here : Film Genres

WIthout story writers no one in the industry would get any work. for eg if there is no story then actors would not get to play any characters on the screen, producers would have nothing to manage and financer would have nothing to invest on as without a story a film cannot be made

But unfortunately in India, we have the least amount of people working in this profession. This is because they never get the due recognition and compensation.

QUALIFICATION

Well there are many courses from the certified film schools for creative writing

But in any form of art more than the degree the important thing is the skillset. A writer must possess certain skills like imagination, creativity keeping technical aspects in mind. the most important is that one should have a good command of a language.

So if your an aspiring writer with a good skill set you can also choose you can choose following hobs in film industry for writers

  1. Scriptwriter
  2. Screenplay writer
  3. Dialogue writer
  • 1. Scriptwriter: So the scriptwriter writes the storyline, theme, and plot of the story on which the film has to be made.
  • 2. Screenplay writer: writes the  movements, action, and gestures which means from where will actor say the dialogue how he moves things etc.often director has a huge contribution in screenplay wiṛiting
  • 3. Dialogue writer: simply writes the dialogues according to the scenes and story. In simple words he writes the conversation of the characters

After seeing many interviews of writers, producers, and directors .They have been complaining about the lack of presence of good writers in the industry and majorly Hindi film industry.

That’s the reason why in recent years Bollywood has produced more sequels and remakes of either old films or south films. The trend of biopics has also begun in Bollywood because of the lack of original story writers.
