It’s an odd thing to ask, but I think it’s worth discussing. When the actor starts making money, that’s usually when the real work is done, so that’s when we make money. So what we know is that actors often start out in film. Often, the first project that an actor gets is a pilot for a TV series, or a film. They start out with that as the first step in the process of developing an agent.
And it’s an extremely important step, because it means that their agent is able to get them some kind of work. The agent that gets you work is the one who’s going to make the biggest money for that particular actor. If the actress is actually doing something as a television creator, or if it’s a film she might be working on, their agent is probably going to be able to get her work on a TV show, or in some other show.
And that’s when they start putting the money into the production.
Actors aren’t averse to being actors
You can be a young actor and you’re going to be a little reluctant to try and get started on film. But when you’re really trying to focus on it, you can see that it will happen. And it will be something you get to be passionate about very soon. And that goes back to my earlier point about the film and TV work you need to be a serious actor.
A film and an actor are the same thing. You can have film work because if you have been making films in your area in high school, you may be able to get yourself a job, and you can get access to those people who want to work with you. You can put yourself in that situation. But if you’re really trying to focus on getting into television or film, and maybe you’re going to be in the business for a long time, then it’s not going to happen. But it is going to happen. And it’s going to be something you get very passionate about very soon.
If the actor and the director aren’t actually going to give you the money to make it happen, then there’s no real motivation for you.
We’ll find a way.
What sort of ways are there?
There are a couple of things. One of them is that film agents, or even television agents, tend to come up with a process—that’s called “writing.” They say, “Let’s talk about the
