If you truly want to move into TV & Film, you will. The secret to booking Film & TV:
1. Get a coach to teach you how to use the camera & rehearse before each audition.
2. Work in the regions for several years, learn how to act.
3. Once you've amassed a nice round of regional credits, have the courage to say no to theater jobs and stay in the city. Because while you're away, its very rare that your agents will pitch you for Film/TV if it conflicts with the theater job.
It takes courage and fortitude to make the switch. But if you don't, you'll be settling for less than your heart's desire.
Show your emotional type & have them submit u based on your emotional range which is often against physical type.
