Fulfill your creative potential
Myth and reality come together in the word: ACTING. Acting out scenes in soaps, movies, stage productions, and commercials may seem like a simple matter of carrying out the director's instructions. Once the director says "LIGHTS-CAMERA-ACTION," actors let all of their creative juices flow, in order to bring their characters to life.
Many people think that successful actors are born with extraordinary talents, and that these talents are the key to their success, the one thing that allows them to create memorable performances and be regarded as great artists. This is simply a MYTH. To deliver a powerful performance, the acting must be seamless, lively, truthful; the emotions portrayed on the stage/screen must feel like the real thing. Only then does a character come to life, and audiences are able to see, behind the acting and the script, a real human being. In order to achieve this kind of result, actors must prepare well and study their characters tenaciously and scrupulously. This is the REALITY.
The greatest movie stars of our time, artists like Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Marlon Brando, Robert de Niro, and Al Pacino, are MYTHS in their own right. They faced an important REALITY; they put their body and soul in the study of the performance arts.
"To deliver a powerful performance, the acting must be seamless, lively, and truthful."

Q. I don't need to study acting; I am sure that a producer will discover me while I'm walking down the street and he/she is going to make me a star. It still happens, right?
Fifty years ago, talent for artistic productions was found in the streets; back then, producers took it upon themselves to train actors, and provided plenty of opportunities for them to work in many different artistic productions. Today, due to the enormous competition in the business of entertainment, producers do not train talent any longer and usually limit their work offers to actors who show up at casting calls/readings equipped with a solid background of training and experience.
If someone were to stop you in the streets, offering you free acting training, and talking about job opportunities in the entertainment industry, be extremely careful. Chances are they may be after something else, or their intentions may not be entirely honorable.
