This book takes out the confusion of the acting process. It is simple, clear, concise and easy to follow. It sets out to make a point, makes it and moves on.
The book is staggered in chapters. So you can pretty much go to the section that you want. Of course, it is rewarding to read it from the beginning.
This book is honest. Amongst the chaos of disingenuous deals, hyped up seminars, work-shops, ideas that are too good to be true and prove just so, this book comes across with straight-forward advice. The book tells you things, not as they ought to be, not as you think they ought to be, but as they are.
The book is very practical. It anticipates your questions before you have had the sense to think them up. It does not try to fit a round peg in a square hole, rather it tells you that the times have moved on from pegs and holes to nuts and bolts. And provides you with the nuts and bolts of how to make it happen.
I wanted to give a quick pre-view of the pearls that I gathered from From Start To Stardom.
From how to take a good headshot, to build a resume, getting an agent and/or manager, working with them, the audition process - the do's and don'ts, finding internet resources, and much more.
And the worksheets through-out the book, make it totally worth it. It gives a clean and uncluttered road-map that anyone can follow.
Buying the book would, penny for penny, be a wise investment. Hopefully, if film schools are smart, they will stock copies too.
