How do i build my acting resume up if i have no way to get to New York or Los Angelas anytime soon? Answered

Hello, I am an aspiring actress and I live very far from any prestigious acting schools, and the job prospects for actors are slim to none around this podunk little town. All of the extra jobs I could do like community theater or school plays are mainly musical, although I love music, I'm not that great at singing or playing some of the instruments to want to make a career out of it. I'm really interested in acting for films though, making people feel something is the reward for doing something like this and it feels so great and I love it so much that doing it for a living would really make me happy! I was just wondering, how do I build my acting resume up if I have no way to get to New York or Los Angelas any time soon?

Acting classes at the local community college are pretty good as well. Nothing says serious like "I took a year of acting classes." At least that's what I'm doing. ;)

Can you do some monologues and post videos on the internet? It counts as acting, you'd get feedback and have some kind of portfolio. L

That's a bit tough - but take every opportunity you can get - a bigger repertoire looks good in an experience sense. Acting school never hurt - but that would involve moving. Perhaps organize your own shows? you can produce and act in your own smaller productions. And Welcome to instructibles!!!
