Actors of all types can finally go to one site to search for jobs that specifically cater to their strongest suit. Categories include:
Character Actor: Character actors typically play quirky, unusual, or eccentric characters, most notably in supporting roles. Some are often classified by their distinctive voices and accents and possess the ability to embody several seemingly different types of characters. Examples include the villain, the funny best friend, and the kooky sidekick.
Film Actor: One of the most highly competitive art form within the acting profession is film acting. Unlike stage actors, film actors rely on intimate interactions with no exaggerated sound or movements and must have the discipline to endure long hours on set with shoot schedules that may be unfavorable. Aside from feature films produced by major studios, actors can audition for parts in independent films, student films, short films, and any number of other similar, smaller budget projects.
Stage Actor: Unlike film actors, stage actors have to exaggerate all emotions and gestures to convey the story and captivate a live audience. This field requires extensive training in vocal projection, script memorization, and effectively expressing an entire storyline in one take. Some characteristics of successful stage actors include the ability to take direction well, punctuality, and good learning and retention skills.
TV Actor: The career of a TV actor often goes hand and hand with film acting. TV actors often are asked to learn extensive scripts in a very short time frame and in most cases, are required to attend rehearsals to prepare for the days of shooting. Television productions are naturally on a smaller budget scale than film, limiting the opportunities for those seeking to act just in television.
Comedic Actor: Contrary to popular belief, comedy is harder than it may seem and most comedic actors train long and hard to practice this art form. While some actors are born with a natural gift for comedic timing, most train this skill.There are many different types of comedic acting with a few examples being slapstick, fish out of water comedy, and parody.
Musical Theater Actor: Musical theater actors are stage actors who perform live theatrical productions. This kind of acting often requires the actor to be a “triple threat”, having the ability to successfully execute and excel in all elements of performance including voice, dance, and acting.
Background Actor: A background actor or extra is a performer in a film, television show, stage production, musical, or in an opera or ballet production, who appears in a non-speaking, non-singing or non-dancing capacity. Punctuality, reliability, and the ability to take direction, also figure prominently for these cast members. Background actors are often selected on short notice after all other preparations for the shoot have been finalized.
Silent Film Actors: A silent film is a film with no synchronized recorded sound, especially with no spoken dialogue. In silent films for entertainment, the dialogue is transmitted through muted gestures, mime, and title cards. Actors in this genre need to be extremely expressive with their faces and bodies.
Impersonator: An impersonator is an actor that copies the mannerisms, dialect, and behavior of a character; rather than create a character. An entertainer often impersonates a celebrity, generally for entertainment, and makes fun of their recent scandals or known behavior patterns.
Voice Over Actor: Voice over actors often have a distinct voice or perhaps a wide range of voices and impressions that they can do. Voice actors can work on commercials, animated movies, video games, and any other venue where voice acting is needed. Often these professionals take classes in diction, comedy, and character work to prepare for these types of jobs.
Shakespearian Actor: Shakespearian actors are quite literally, actors and actresses specializing in the works of William Shakespeare, often classified as melodrama. This field requires extensive study and training with a knack for diction and knowledge of iambic pentameter.
Commercial Acting: Commercial acting is a discipline that focuses on acting for commercials. Unique acting skills are necessary to ensure the message is adequately conveyed in less than a minute. A single commercial spot can be invaluable to an actor as a lucrative source of income and recognition that could possibly lead to future roles in film and television.
