Jim Carrey the world's greatest comedian getting repeated rejections before success

Why so many actors including me rejected in auditions?
I' quitting. Getting repeated rejections in auditions. Any solution?
My school never taught me how to avoid repeated audition failure and get a role. Can You help?
How to become film and TV serial actor by being selected in auditions?

Answering These 7 simple questions and preparing well can make you succeed in auditions  

The other side is that an actor who puts in the time and energy will definitely have a greater understanding of their character and their personal acting technique.
Take them, learn them, and think about them. That is why Stanislavski asked them.

  • There are so many different acting techniques that finding a process that works for you can be confusing and difficult. Ironically, most acting books and teachers use similar principles based on Stanislavski's system. This is because Constantin Stanislavski is considered, even today as 'The father of modern acting' and every acting technique created in the current era continues to get influenced by 'Father Stan.' 
  • For young actors, I'm giving an understanding of Stanislavski’s 7 questions which will be an invaluable foundation upon which to build a 'character' the actor intends to play.

As A Character Ask

Who am I?

Start with the basics and then fill in the gaps with your imagination. Pick apart the script to find out what type of person your character is; what they look like, what they believe, how others describe them and so on. Think about your character’s past and the significant events/people that influenced them and made them who they are in the script.

Where am I?

The script will usually tell you where you are but the important thing for an actor is to consider how the character feels about the place they are in. Characters act differently in public than they do in private. People move differently when they are cold vs. when they are too hot. The space your character occupies can determine how they behave during a scene.

What time is it?

Year, season, month, day, and time of day should all be described. Then, think about how the specific time of the play changes the character’s action. If it’s night, looks or says in the upper regions of Himachal Pradesh in extreme winter, physical reactions and dialog delivery may change.

What do I want?

This is a character’s primary motivation for everything they do in a scene. All actions should be executed with the goal of getting what you want from the other characters in the scene. This is also called a character’s objective.

Why do I want it?

There must be a driving force behind your objectives on stage and on film screen and that is your justification. We all had reasons for doing what we do and characters are no different. Give your character a convincing reason for acting and you automatically generate high stakes which lead to tension.

How will I get what I want?

Imagine. Use your dialogue, movements, and gestures to try to influence the other characters to give you what you want i.e. accomplish your objective. This is also called a character’s tactic. If one tactic fails, try a new one and see if that works.

What must I overcome to get what I want?

There may be always something in the script stopping characters from achieving their objective so as to create a drama. Usually, there is someone or something in the outside world impeding a character’s advancement and also some internal conflict with which they struggle. Find what it/they are and fight against them with the scene. This is also called a character’s obstacle.

Why Playing Lottery Made Me A Good Actor?

I'm an International Award-Winning Character Actor (Guiana 1838), and an acting coach

Page From My Life Diary

As an aspiring actor a few years back....

"Like many millions of other people, I bought a lottery ticket on Monday. With a jackpot worth of Rs.10 Crores, I couldn’t resist. But as I handed over that cash, I felt shame. I felt as if I'm being looked by scornful eyes and judged. In my head, I heard the voices of dozens of friends and family shouting at me, “You just threw that money away!” They told me how ridiculous I was being, how insanely long the odds of winning are and to not get my hopes up. They are familiar voices. They pop up regularly in my life, in moments when I find myself beginning to fantasize and daydream. They are the voices of reason. Of the rational. Of control. And they are trying to ruin my acting.

I have spent most of my life fighting with my mind’s weird strict direction to through life out of control. It is extremely easy for me to think negatively, to turn the smallest discomfort into as if I'm gonna die. In my head, a failed effort easily turns into a fear and a doom. An unexpected knock on the door quickly escalates into a devil entering. My mind likes to just run away. I’m constantly fighting against it because, most of the time, it leads into some terrible direction so I have to do everything in my power to bring myself back to reality just to calm myself down. This escapism away from realizing my dreams to become a good actor is nothing but a myth. 

Less often, I will find myself fantasizing about an opportunity that comes my way to be a successful actor. When a big audition comes along, a life-changing kind of project-

  • I will find myself drifting away into a fantasy, a colorful future
  • I imagine hearing how proud people are of me
  • I imagine traveling to incredible places to film my scenes.
  • I imagine the crew and the director gave me a standing ovation on my performance in a scene shot
  • I imagine my beautiful female co-stars congratulating me after a shot
  • I imagine depositing Rs. 10 Lakhs in my bank account
  • My vacations to incredible tourist places in India and abroad and staying Taj or Hilton

And when I get caught up, I hear those voices telling me to get ahold of myself, to calm down, to come back to my safe and routine life. The voices, the voices of therapists and friends and family, voices of those who have my best interest in mind, try to restore control.

The world trains us to lead a less complicated and a safe life. We get messages to calm down and not get worked up all the time. The life teaches us to keep our heads down and follows the logical, rational path. Perhaps this may be correct. It would be a tough world if everyone was constantly in contact with the extreme things that could happen in every moment. It would be equally impossible to go to work if we followed every fantasy and dream. So we tame our imagination.

But we actors cannot. We actors must learn to tap into the depth of our imaginations in order to fulfill the depth of the roles we play. We have to remember that every moment in our life as an "Avatar" has tremendous potential, that we can alter our lives by following the impulses others would try to forget. We must own the reality that some days we lose what we love to be and other days are full of new opportunities to fulfill what we love to be.

Films and plays are not about the days where you wake up and drown yourself into tension free medicare routine risk-free life. We as actors must accept this normally hidden aspect of the human life-the magic of the unwritten moment, the incredible things happening to people. Actors must witness to the dynamic possibilities of human experience to be able to create a life never seen by the world. 
Some days, someone somewhere wins the lottery. And someday, it could be us.
So let's dream and imagine"

"Why Imagination Is The Only Power To Make You A Star Actor

Actors must use their imagination to create character including character's motivation and the meaning of their action. The film script, which itself is a construction of the author's imagination, is a point from which the director and actors hope to arrive at a finished work of art.

The audience will then remove all doubts and disbelief and allow themselves to get into the imaginary world of the film or stage to live in them"
