I've always wanted to become an actor, But at times I'm scared!!! Please Help!!?
So everyday I constantly dream on and on about being that awesome character that inspires me in these movies, even creating my own hero character, or evil character, becoming a supporting actor, lead actor. I even try to become a variety of different personalities all the time! I've been doing this for years and years! But I always hesitate to do it in front of people because I've never been used to acting in front of people! :/ Only alone. I wish I could get that comfort I have with myself when I'm alone and use that acting ability in front of people.
I used to act in a high school movie making class and the people that were my friends were pretty much in that class so I felt comfortable acting in front of them since they were all my friends. And I and one of my friends made a movie and practically directed it ourselves, I was the main actor and the movie won first place at a competition! I was confident in making that movie and somehow it turned out to be a success in high school! Now I was thinking of taking theater in college to knock the fears of acting in front of people out of me... So would that be a good idea? I wanted to start small so that I can get used to it until I find myself confident enough to take on bigger things so that I can be in the movies that I've wanted to be in! Would this be a good idea? Thanks.
I've been acting all my life, just not in front of strangers... I love acting. I just need to know if going to college to take theater would remove my fears of letting out that side of me that only comes out when I'm alone.
