I'm a lead in a film with no experience!

Reply Tue 16 May, 2017 04:02 pm
So basically, I heard there is an Independent, Full Length Feature Film being filmed near where I live. As I've studied in Film Production, I wanted to get involved in the film as a runner/roadie or an assistant to help out with everyday things onset. However, I went to the 'Casting & Crew Day' and explain I wanted to get involved with the production as a runner etc, then the director of the film turn to me and said "You know, we are looking for a male lead, and you have the look we're going for... would you be interested?" (Baring in mind I've never acted before and I told them this!)

I was a bit hesitant at first but ended up saying Yes, and spent the day reading lines with the producer and some of the other cast. I must've done something right as they still want me as the lead!

Now a week or two has passed, I've started to worry about what I'm getting myself in for. I'm actually excited about being in a film but I'm worried I'll let people down.

I'm just asking for some advice about being a lead in a film and also acting in general. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Smile

No advice, but if the director and producer like what they are getting from you then just do what you are doing. They may care less about your experience and more about a particular look or feel you are projecting.

Make sure you get paid and the checks don't bounce.

As Spencer Tracy observed, " Acting is easy. Toe your mark and say your lines." paraphrasing
