The topics I have chosen are The Man from Nowhere, Toy Story 3, and Tron: Legacy. The first being a South Korean film that climbed to #1 in 2010 and featured action and suspense on par or superior to a similar American movie, Taken.

The key thing that I have learned in my acting classes is that a person has to be a tad crazy to pursue acting and if a person is trying to act then they are better off not doing it for fame and money but because they are inspired to because it is their passion.
Other concerns that could lead to being fired would be if I was not prepared for scenes, which require memorization of the script and being able to bring the emotion and body language in every scene, take after take. Being fully prepared for roles and long hours are key considerations when pursuing an acting career.
