If you are just considering getting your child started in the entertainment industry, much of the information on this site may seem a bit overwhelming. This section is just for you!
How the Entertainment Industry is DIFFERENT than other businesses:
Success in the entertainment industry does not follow the normal career ladder of other occupations. Many will try to sell you a “path to success” or “secrets to fame”. Many will tell you that their acting school, their system, their agent, manager, photographer, competition, theatre group, etc. is THE connection you are looking for that will take you to the next step on that ladder. They might even tell you that “Getting Discovered” will shoot you to the top of the ladder.
Here is the truth: There is no ladder. Rather, there are many zigzag paths to success in this industry. It’s different for everyone. That’s why you will often hear conflicting advice on how to get started and how to be successful.
