There really is no business quite like show business. Behind all the glitz and glamor of the stars is a dizzying world of savvy agents, picky casting directors, "big picture" producers, and bustling production teams. How do young, aspiring actors make it onto movie and TV screens? Lisa O'Brien, a seasoned creator, writer, and TV producer, takes readers behind the scenes in Lights, Camera, Action! There's a lot to know about show biz: how auditions work, getting an agent, honing your craft, and understanding how a movie is made. Budding actors will learn to identify the qualities and characteristics of a good actor, understand how an idea becomes a screenplay and how a movie's cast is chosen, find out how agents help actors land parts and how to approach an agent to represent you, learn how to prepare for an audition and what to expect when you get there, and much more! Whether you're dreaming of the big screen, hoping to ham it up on a TV sitcom, trying out for the school play, or just interested in the amazing world of movies and television, Lights, Camera, Action! will start you in the right direction.
