Difference Between A Good Actor And Good At Acting

Tuesday, 11 January 2011

Seriously has Conan gone off the deep end? Has the stress of too many anxious nights waiting for the "big one" finally gone to his head?

No, and here is a fundamental mistake that I see many young aspiring actors making.

In fact in the last week 3 different people have asked my advice on acting and I have pretty much given the same sermon I am about to give here.

Being a good actor has little to do with being good at the art of acting, though the two are not mutually exclusive. 

*NOTE: This rant is relevant to your occupation too....


Conan's Career As At Jan 2011

Thursday, 06 January 2011

Just recently a good friend suggested that I put a deadline on my acting career, a cut off date where if I had not made it by then that I should give it up and go back to Australia to build my future the traditional way of swapping hours for money in what some people call a real job.

Funnily enough a mutual friend of both of us called last month and said to me, when I was a feeling down,  "Look how far you have come in the last 5 years - Imagine where you will be in 5 years time."

Or should I follow some previous advice and get the heck out of the third world? 

All very good sets of advice so which do I take? Which would you take?

That depends upon where you would believe your career is at. Here's what I am doing.... 


How To Get Auditions From The Internet

Sunday, 02 January 2011

Again while many 'actors' sit around waiting for their agent to call them for a casting I have been at it myself, trying to create my own work. Scouring the web for new possibilities , making my own luck .

This is a lot easier than you might think... well make that it is a lot easier than you think once you have built yourself into a definite niche product with the required skill sets and enough experience to be taken seriously when you make your pitch. Oh yes, did I mention that you have to learn to sell yourself ?


Two Million Visitors To!!!

Sunday, 26 December 2010

TWO MILLION unique visits to this site. Yes, two million seperate visits, not page refreshes, not 'hits' no bull stats but a real 2 million people have 'passed through the gates' so to speak as measured by Google Analytics.

Add in the 756,000 views of my Youtube and  Yahoo video channels and another 350,000 from my other assorted websites and that is over 3 million visits to my sites.

Regardless of what anyone says I consider that a major coup in self promotion from a relatively unknown actor and it has been worth it and it is most definitely helping my career and taking me places....


Christmas Stampedes

Friday, 24 December 2010

Well it has rolled around again - all christians go out now and in a shopping frenzy reminiscent of berserker Vikings discovering unprotected church gold on the shores of England, celebrate by going out to the Xmas sales with mobs of other mind controlled shopping zombies and putting yourself in credit card debt to 'prove' you love your family.... because that is what the TV tells you to do.

Here is a different take on Christmas from Rob Sheridan:


Awesome. Enjoy your friends and the things that are important to your life. Stampedes and fist fights over "sale" items is a bloody ridiculous way to celebrate friends and family. 

I have been accused of being cynical - here is last Christmas , and the one before . Not really much to get excited about is it when you look at the reality.
