My dream is kinda big. I want to become an actress. But i'm really working for it. I'm taking acting classes and in my school theater company. I want to make it big someday.

anyways YES I SO AGREE I tell everyone that because People tell me I dream to much




Ugghh....sometimes people can be so shallow. Everyone-- including my own parents-- have always told me that I have too big of dreams and too big on an imagination. But, I don't agree at all. If we didn't have dreams, what would we live for? We'd have no goals, ambitions, drives to propel us through life. I grew up as an only child, and my parents were always working, so I quickly learned the fascinating art of imagining. At an early age, I started acting-- only, at the time, I never realized I was acting. Most vividly I remember pretending to be a witch (I was an odd child, I guess). I remember collecting berries, leaves, nuts, various types of soil and mixing them in water in hopes to form some sort of apothecary. I would also take seeds and throw them onto bushes while making up some chant that obviously made no sense whatsoever. I would imagine that I turned the bush into a white horse, and then ride off into the sunset. Maybe I watched too much television, or saw too many movies.


Imaginations are healthy and productive. Don't let anyone try to take your imagination away from you. You just need an outlet to use it.

That is an awesome dream. I also enjoy acting (though, have no plans to pursue it professionally). I just bought a book on auditions and how to audition effectively. I found it tremendously helpful and insightful. One thing it recommends is to audition every chance you get, even if you don't think you fit the part. The experience in itself will help you immensely. The more you read, the more your skill will improve. Keep taking those classes. And above all else, believe in your ability to excell. Even when you receive rejection after rejection, remember your dream and have confidence that you will acheive it. Acting is a fical business-- you may be extremely talented, but it may take you forever to land the role that catapaults your career off to stardom. On the other hand, even if you decide later that you don't want to be an actress, you can still use all your training to your advantage in whatever field you decide to enter.

oh I know I always had quite the imagination for me it wasnt the fact that I was the Only but it was the fact that I was the youngest and my older siblings are QUITE a bit older then me so by the time I came around it was like being the Only because they were in college and out of the house (with the exception of my sister Corinna but she was so busy with her friends she had no time for me) so I use to make up imaginary friends,or Pretend i'm some kind of princess or something like that Personally now though I think I belong in California I soo completely hate Oregon its not even funny if I had the money to I'd move there in a heart beat and Just start writing
On Your Pretending to be a Witch thing THATS FUNNY I do that now sort of I frighten My enemies (like my Exes new girlfriends or My enemies in Real life) by making them THINK I AM one I'm NOT but they dont have to know that right
by the way I LOVE your new Avatar Pretty Woman is one of my all time fave movies

Thanks! I LOVE Pretty Woman too! Julia Roberts is so pretty. And Richard Gere is just one hot tomale!

Hmmmmm.....about the writing thing. That's a question that's been lurking in my mind. I keep wondering how to break into the business. By what I hear, 'tis better to just write and gather a portfolio together, then try to sell your work (make sure it's copyrighted first, though, before you show it to anyone). My screenwriting professor advises us to write everyday, no matter what we write. Just writing, learning how to format, getting the basics down enhances your skill. What you want to do is create your own personal writing voice. Something that people will read and be able to idetify you as the author.


You want to write? Then choose a show(s), start analyzing your characters, and begin writing scripts. You have to know your characters inside and out. You have to know their fears/concerns/dreams. And above all else, you must make the actors look good (actors have egos that need feeding into). I think it's difficult to write for television merely on the premise that you have to take someone else's character and learn him/her. When writing a screenplay for a movie, you can create your own character, and since he/she is yours, you know him/her well.




But, ack.....I am a nobody. Who am I to give advice? Perhaps David77 can give advice on this, since he's actually made it through the process.

thats actually all good advice and what I pretty much do already I've got folders and folders and folders of my scripts I pretty much chose the shows I was into at the time I've got scripts I've written (For the heck of it) for FRIENDS,Spin City and the most recent being Becker and I've got just plain stories as well
yeah I know Julia is one of my fave actresses and Richard YUMMMMMMMMMY thats all I have to say

Dreams don't come true without dreamers!

You have to really want it. Just leaving home and moving to Los Angeles alone is not an easy task on many levels. Especially when you have family far away. It is not like going to college where you are gone for four years. It is the rest of your life. As time goes by there are many life and family considerations. People get sick, people die, your friends get married and have families, etc and you are not there for any of it. You are in your own new life in California. It is a huge adjustment. Not only are you in a new crazy lifestyle, you also have to survive in the mean time until you find work in show business. Meaning a regular day job. Unless you are wealthy. Finding work in show biz doesn't mean it will become steady work either. Even the best shows don't last. I didn't work in show business for two years after Happy Days. You have to survive inbetween too. You have to get your work to producers through agents usually. That is how I did it. That is called the proper channels. All in all what I am saying is if you really want it you can have it. You just have to be willing to leave behind everything. You have to have the drive and you have to have a product and you have to be willing to keep cranking out more product (for free) until someone hires you. Once you sell something it is not easy to keep writing on spec either when you are unemployed again. You think you should be paid, you are in the union and no one will hire you. Back then if you wrote for Happy Days you were looked down upon. Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, those shows were not considered quality writing. So I had to go back to writing specs like MASH or Mary Tyler Moore and send those out along with a Happy Days. You have to be on the phone every day and basically cram it down their throats. Hollywood is not a pretty place. There is outrageous crime, horrible yellow smog in 110 degree heat, traffic, decadence on every corner. It is not what you see on tv. Sure there are glamorous homes and glamorous events but the day to day working grind of Hollywood (Fountain Street & Gower)is not glamorous at all. It does however have the Tv and movie industry and if you really have the talent and you really have drive, chances are you will find work because the work is there. It is not a dream. It is a reality. You just have to want that reality and you have to be willing to give up everything and be there. If you get lucky and work steady or create your own tv show you can make enough money to live somewhere else anyway even if it is a couple of hours away. Anything is possible. Be careful what you want because you just may get it. Keep dreaming, keep writing, Write on spec, follow your heart, Register your work with the WGA west. Send scripts to agents listed on the WGA website. Most of all don't move blindly to Hollywood. Be prepared. Visit a few times. Everything takes time. I moved there and I did it in one year. Without my brother's help. I was lucky. I was collecting unemployment, I had time, rents were low back then, I sat home and wrote all day, every day. I wrote every tv show that was on the air. I had twenty spec scripts written before I had an agent. I was like a machine.
I was also lucky or blessed to find the right agent at the right time. (April 1978-Pre-78 season)and I got hired by Happy Days in June from a speculation Fish episode that I had written. You just never know. The main thing was I was there and I had the time to network and take meetings. By the time I saw my name on TV with Happy Days. May 1979. I was unemployed again. I had the Happy Days script money and my unemployment checks to get me to my next gig. I was a hero in my home town and a zero in Hollywood. Ah yep yep yep. Nice weather though.

I HOPE THIS HELPS! THIS IS OFF WWW.WGA.ORG



Writers Guild Material can be submitted by mail or in person at our Los Angeles office.

Click here for information on procedure for deposit by mail or in person.

Purpose and Coverage

The WGA Registration Service has been set up to assist writers in establishing the completion dates of material written for the fields of radio, film, television, video cassettes/discs, and interactive media.

Registration provides a dated record of the writer's claim to authorship of a particular literary material. If necessary a WGA employee may produce the material as evidence if legal or official Guild action is initiated.

The Intellectual Property Registry does not make comparisons of registration deposits, bestow any statutory protections, or give legal advice. Submitted material is not read by the Intellectual Property Registry or WGAw staff.

Please be aware registration with the Guild does not protect titles.

Registerable Material

Registerable material includes scripts, treatments, synopses, outlines, written ideas specifically intended for radio, television and film, video cassettes/discs, and interactive media.

The WGA Registration Office also accepts stageplays, novels and other books, short stories, poems, commercials, lyrics, and drawings.

Procedure for Deposit by Mail or In Person

The Registration Office must receive:

1) One (1) unbound loose-leaf copy of material on standard, 8 1/2" x 11" paper.
2) Cover sheet with title of material and all writers' full legal names.
3) Social security number (or foreign equivalent), return address, and phone numbers of authors.
4) Registration fee(s): WGAw and WGAE members in good standing - $10, non-members - $20.

Click for a convenient title page to use when registering by mail or in person.

When the material is received, it is sealed in an envelope and the date and time are recorded. A numbered certificate is returned which serves as the official documentation of registration. Because the certificate is your proof of registration, it should be kept in a safe place.

Notice of registration may consist of the following wording on the title page:

"REGISTERED WGAw No.____."

Duration and Expiration

Registration is valid for a term of five (5) years. Upon expiration registration may be renewed for an additional five-year period at the current registration rate. Renewals will be accepted up to three (3) months prior to the expiration of the original registration. A grace period will be extended allowing renewals as late as three (3) months following the expiration of the original registration.

At the time of registration, or renewal, you authorize the WGA to destroy the material without further notice to you on the expiration of the first term of registration or any renewal period.

Access to Registration Information

Only the writers listed on the registration receipt may request confirmation of registration, the registration number, date of deposit, or any other information.

The WGA will honor such written requests from writers regarding the registration of their own work(s) only if accompanied by photo identification. All verification or confirmation requests from a writer should contain as much specific information as possible, such as registration number, title of material, effective date, and social security number of writer, and may be submitted by facsimile, mail, or in person. The fax number for the Intellectual Property Registry is (323) 782-4803.

Access to Copies of Deposited Material

Because the deposited material cannot be returned to the writer without defeating the purpose of registration, registered material may not be withdrawn. It is therefore important to always retain a separate copy of the material being registered.

If a writer finds it necessary to obtain a copy of deposited material, duplicates may be purchased for the price of registration upon written request by one or more of the listed authors, identified by photo identification. In the event an author is deceased, proof of death and consent of the representative of the heirs and/or estate must be presented in order to obtain a copy of the material.

Requests for duplication of deposited material must be submitted by 5 p.m. Thursday of any week. Duplicates will be available Wednesday of the following week.

In no event, except under these provisions, shall any deposited material, copies of deposited material, or information regarding deposited material be provided unless an official guild action, court order, or other legal process has been served.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does registration take the place of copyright?

No. Any questions regarding copyright should be directed to the U.S. Copyright Office in Washington, D.C. at 1-800-688-9889 or to an attorney specializing in that area of law. Copyright application forms are available to walk-in customers only. Or click for more information www.loc.gov.

Does registration with the Writers Guild protect titles?

No. For more information, go to www.uspto.gov.

Does registration help a writer become a member?

No. Questions concerning the rules for admission to membership in the guild should be referred to the WGA's Membership department at (323) 782-4532. Or click for more information: www.wga.org/manuals/admission.html.

Does registration help in determining writing credits?

Generally, no. If there is a dispute as to authorship or sequencing of material by date, then registration may be relevant. Questions concerning the WGA credit determination procedures should be directed to the Credits department at (323) 782-4528. Or click here for more information www.wga.org/credits/index.html.

For questions and answers about online registration, visit our FAQ page or contact the Intellectual Property Registry at (323) 782-4500.

[QUOTE][QUOTE]That is an awesome dream. I also enjoy acting (though, have no plans to pursue it professionally). I just bought a book on auditions and how to audition effectively. I found it tremendously helpful and insightful. One thing it recommends is to audition every chance you get, even if you don't think you fit the part. The experience in itself will help you immensely. The more you read, the more your skill will improve. Keep taking those classes. And above all else, believe in your ability to excell. Even when you receive rejection after rejection, remember your dream and have confidence that you will acheive it. Acting is a fical business-- you may be extremely talented, but it may take you forever to land the role that catapaults your career off to stardom. On the other hand, even if you decide later that you don't want to be an actress, you can still use all your training to your advantage in whatever field you decide to enter.Thanks for your advice. My parents aren't very happy with my career choice, but that's my dream and I'll do anything to make it come true. I'm also planning to take a drama course in college, and maybe even going to college in California. I hope that you also make your dream of becoming a writer come true.
