Top Ten Public Community College Film Schools

The entertainment business can be a blast, but many people don’t realize how much work it entails. Whether you want to be an actor on the big screen or a director or producer behind the scenes, you will have to claw and fight to get into the loop. Once you do, you can count on countless 12 hours, so it better be something you love doing. Still interested? Okay, let’s move on.

But, there are many other entertainment careers beside acting. Many people are involved in making a film. Directors, producers, and screenwriters, not to mention the crew. This includes people that deal with the lighting, set design, and location scouting just to name a few.

But still, I want to be a actor — You you want to be an actor, start acting. As soon as you can The more you do something and the longer you do it, the better you will become and the more likely you are to be good at it and possibly get recognized for it. You will eventually need a resume and an agent, but most importantly start acting.

Colleges with Acting Programs — A great start to an acting career is to go to college and enter the Theater or Film program. It’s a great way to learn your craft and meet people that have the same career aspirations as you, which is great for networking the rest of your life.

Acting Classes — If you live in a city like New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Dallas, or Chicago you are going to have people that teach programs that last 1-4 years that are not associated with a traditional school. These course can be just as good or better, so don’t dismiss them when searching ways to study.

Method or Strasberg…what should I do? — Most acting techniques are variations of the Stanislavski system. They have just been slightly altered by different people over the years. They are all good, so check them out see which one you are most comfortable with.

Learn how to make films at Film School — Maybe you don’t want to be in front of the camera. Well, go to film school and try your hand behind the lens. These schools will teach you every aspect of film making from lighting to directing.

NYU Film School – Often considered the best. If you get in here, you are playing with the big boys.

Agents — It’s inevitable: you will need a agent to keep your career going in Hollywood. Or you could become one. Here again is another entertainment job available to you. It can be just as hard as becoming an actor, but can be rewarding in its own right.

Screenwriting Programs — Writing a script is a great way to satisfy the creative juices you have flowing inside you. Just think you get to write the words for all the different characters in the screenplay, not just be one of them like an actor.

Think outside the box. It’s a tough business with long hours. Get your feet wet in some aspect to see if it is something you want to peruse full time.

Public Transportation Alternatives

The proposed purple metro line between Bethesda and New Carrolton, Maryland has been an on and off issue for years. The local business interests of Bethesda and Chevy Chase and other parties like the local politician Steve Silverman have been pushing for this new metro line for years, arguing it will bring new business and vitality to the area and relieve the already congested Capital Beltway (495). The detractors of the idea including some local well-to-do residents and local politicians like Ike Leggett resist the idea arguing it will increase the commercial traffic trough some choice neighborhoods and create new urban problems rather than solving them.

The detractors of the idea including some local well-to-do residents and local politicians like Ike Leggett resist the plan arguing it will increase the commercial traffic trough some choice neighborhoods and create new urban problems rather than solve them.

 

It is the classic tug of war between the pro-development and pro-status-quo groups.

 

The Purple Line looks good on paper indeed, connecting the high-income Bethesda and Chevy Chase with the rapidly gentrifying Silver Spring, arching over to the University of Maryland College Park campus and terminating in the busy metro and train hub of New Carrollton from where you can even take the Amtrak to Philly and New York City.

 

I can imagine a college student renting an affordable efficiency in Silver Spring and then hopping on the Purple Line and catching that first class early in the morning at University of MD.

 

The Purple will also connect to the Green Line at College Park, with the Red Line in Bethesda, and Orange Line at Silver Spring. Thus through these connections you can travel as far down south as the Reagan Airport.

 

I think the Purple Line would be an exciting and much needed addition to the Capital region’s already exhausted transportation network.

 

With thousands of new residents flocking to this economically exploding metropolitan area, what we need is more and not less public transportation alternatives.
