Kim Tassinari – Forging a Path Into Acting

Experience is the most valuable asset that aspiring actors and actresses have when they audition. Actors and actresses who are already on their way, like Kim Tassinari, take all types of acting gigs to add experience to their resumes and to network in the industry. When actors and actresses are just beginning, they still need to start forging their paths by finding consistent opportunities for experience.

Consistent acting experience isn’t possible for new talent if they’re only looking for experience with gigs. New talent will have an easier time getting regular experience if they find acting classes that allow them work on their skills. A weekly opportunity to act front of others provides the type of experience that shows in an audition. No matter how talented actors or actresses are, it is obvious to directors if they’re inexperienced at playing various roles in front of people.

A good acting class will have rave reviews from students who left the class with a career breakthrough. The coach should also help actors and actresses find representation or to find gigs if they do not want agents. Acting coaches see actors and actresses of all tiers come and go. Some stars still revisit their first acting coach for skill touch-ups. As a result, acting coaches are also invaluable networking resources.

Of course, there’s no one-size-fits-all acting path, but beginning with experience is a reliable way to succeed. Once actors and actresses have experience, they can begin forging their own paths however they would like. For Kim Tassinari, the right way to start her path was to audition for small theater rolls and television commercials. Eventually, she may hit the red carpet and tell stories about why she chose to approach her path the way she did.

Kim Tassinari – Starting Off on the Wrong Foot

Almost all actors and actresses start off on the wrong foot – unless they avoid rushing into their careers, that is. For example, Kim Tassinari dreamed of being an actress for most of her life, but she waited to pursue the career. It wasn’t until she had pursued her profession as a doctor and retired after 15 years that she began acting. Her success at the beginning of her acting career is because she started with herself. Acting talent has a higher rate of success if they start by making themselves better people, deciding what they want from acting and removing as many obstacles as possible.

Actors and actresses that have several negative traits often start off poorly because they are focused on greed, selfishness and anger. When they make themselves into better people, they are usually aiming for happiness, simplicity and achievements. Directors are more likely to give talent with better qualities a chance, even if they have never heard of the actors or actresses before.

Acting talent that doesn’t know what they want will also often start off on the wrong foot. This is because they might blindly rush in and, as a result, make bad impressions. By taking the time to decide what they want from their acting careers, talent can carefully approach the industry so that they make good first impressions. Networking is key to succeeding as an actor or actress, and good impressions make networking more effective.

When actors and actresses attempt to begin their acting career while they still have financial, familial or educational obstacles in their paths, they often fail. Kim Tassinari removed obstacles in her path by first pursuing a successful career as a doctor, happily retiring and then making a clear acting plan before she began. This approach is more likely to help acting talent succeed in the difficult industry.

Kim Tassinari – Getting Started as an Actress or Actor

Whether an actor or actress is just out of school or has switched careers to pursue acting, like actress Kim Tassinari did, getting the right start is essential. Instead of jumping directly into casting calls for big-name movies, which is usually a futile effort, new actors and actresses should start small. Acting classes, for example, will help Hollywood hopefuls get started on the right foot.

Acting classes aren’t just for newbies. In fact, seasoned stars often take acting classes to learn new things about their trade or to brush up on their skills. When new talent takes an acting class, though, it helps boost their careers. Most acting coaches recommend that first-timers begin with six months of basic classes before they move onto auditions and advanced or specialized classes. These six months help actors and actresses decide which roles they play best, what their strengths are and what areas need work.

When the actor or actress decides to improve with new classes, television commercial classes or improvisation classes might be beneficial. Fresh talent can also take classes on audition techniques to better their chances of landing roles. Another benefit of taking acting classes is that it allows the talent to start networking in the industry. A read over any success-oriented interview with acting stars usually reveals that networking was a large part of their career.

Actress Kim Tassinari has landed roles both in theater productions and commercials thanks to her acting talent. With a continued interest in furthering her knowledge as an actress, she might one day appear on the red carpet with a success interview of her own.

What Special Skills Do You Have ?

If you aren’t presenting yourself professionally or effectively enough in the skills section of your acting resume, then you may be missing out on numerous opportunities to be cast in a commercial. When casting directors are looking to fill roles for their commercials or theatrical roles, they are often looking to cast someone with a specific set of skills. When you are first starting your acting career, your skills can land you more auditions and can be responsible for getting you cast in more jobs.

Anything that you excel in, have experience doing, or do well can be considered a skill and should be listed on your resume. Since most roles require someone with certain skills, the skills section on your resume can be influential in getting you auditions. The way in which you present your skills can either be the reason you land an audition or the reason your phone has remained silent.

The order in which you list your skills is also important when it comes to preparing your resume. The skills that you are most proficient in should be listed first, followed by those skills that might be higher in demand. The skills that you have less experience in or haven’t done in a while should appear at the end of the list along with those skills that are more obscure.

Kim Tassinari has enjoyed early success as an actress. After retiring from a career in medicine, Kim has appeared in several local television commercials and starred in some local theater performances in North Hollywood.

Goals of a new actor

New actors have a list of different goals they would like to be able to accomplish before they can say that they have made it. It is hard for a lot of people to go from nothing to fame in a few years. If you have a clear set of goals for what you would like to do in your career, it is important to follow them as closely to the letter as possible. Kim Tassinari knows just what it is like to write your goals and then follow them. Her goal was to be a doctor one day, and she achieved that goal. Then, it was to retire and become an actor, she also achieve that goal. You have to believe in yourself if you want to be able to fulfill the goals you set out for yourself.

One goal for new actors is to get their name out in lights. They want to be famous and they want to have a great career. Not every actor will have this opportunity, and it’s not necessarily about how good or bad they are, it is all about how hard they worked. Your goal of just being famous is not enough.

Sometimes it is harder to achieve your goals if you start shooting for the biggest one right off the bat. It is sometimes easier for you to start off with small goals, such as getting headshots made. This is an easily attainable goal that you can get done, and it will be well on the way to being famous one day.

Finding roles is another goal of actors. It can be discouraging to be in a city full of actors and not have any roles. But sometimes, you have to take the small ones in order to get to the larger roles. It is no problem to take a few commercials in order to get some money to help pay for other expenses. Goals do not always need to be large and seemingly unattainable. They can be small, enough to get your through to the next goal, that way you can make it to that large goal you originally started out with.

Break a Leg

Anyone involved in theater, movies, or television knows the many unwritten rules about superstitions. Theater actors, directors, and stage hands especially are known for their superstitions, with traditions dating back hundreds of years. One of those superstitions is saying “break a leg” instead of “good luck.” There are many different histories of the origins of this term. In ancient Greece, a culture known for its excellent playwrights and live performances, the term may come from the practice of stomping one’s feet instead of applauding. “Break a leg” could be referring to hoping the audience likes your performance. In Elizabethan England, when Shakespeare wrote and performed plays, the term could refer to the bowing at the end of the performance (“to break the leg”). In the Vaudeville tradition, “break a leg” could refer to the practice of keeping the performers just off the stage. They break the leg of the curtain when they enter the playing space. It could also come from the understudies, who wish the main actor ahead of them would break their leg so they could perform. Where ever it comes from, whatever you do, never wish a performer “good luck.” Always say “break a leg.”

The retired doctor Kim Tassinari hopes to “break a leg” herself with her second career as an actor in Los Angeles. After she quit her private practice in North Hollywood, she decided she needed a new dream to pursue, so she started auditioning for small parts. Now she has a spot in multiple local television advertisements and small theater productions.

The Acting Life – Being in the Right Place at the Right Time

The old adage in Hollywood is that success is about who you know rather than your skill set. While this is partially true, it’s more important to be in the right place at the right time. Many hugely successful actors got their first big breaks from sheer luck. Most hugely talented actors who eventually find consistent work are rejected hundreds of times before they make it onto the screen or stage. Casting directors are often looking for different things than what you think you bring to the table. They take actors onto their production team because they like their “look” and take whatever skills that actor may or may not have.

Being in the right place at the right time is all about persistence. The more auditions you go to, the better chance you have of lucking into a part. Talent is of course important, but anyone who has gone to some acting classes and doesn’t get nervous performing in front of others has the talent for many roles in Hollywood. Continuing to go to auditions after multiple rejections from all over town is what separates the true actors from everyone else chasing their dreams in Hollywood.

Kim Tassinari believes that she has a chance to enter the action scene after a long, successful career as a medical doctor treating movie stars and their families in North Hollywood for fifteen years. Tassinari developed the kind of work ethic that actors need in her years of medical school and practicing medicine.
