How to become an actor in Vancouver
I arrived in Vancouver on a gloomy day in March. Relocating to a new city without knowing a single soul upon arrival seems a recurring theme in my life. I little bit of a nomad to some.
Well, the week of my arrival I began looking for work and signed up to a few good sites like Vancouver Actors Guide. Found myself involved involved in a few productions already and I’m enjoying the city tremendously.
I love living in a major city surrounded by mountains, lakes and opportunities to go hiking in the wild just a twenty minute drive from downtown Vancouver.
Last week, I traveled to Maple Ridge to shoot some scenes for a few webisodes produced by the Justice Insitute of British Columbia.
We worked with real firemen (and women) and RCMP officers and I got to ride in one of the fire trucks involved in the production. Fun!
I chatted quite a bit with our lovely boom operator Brooke. She previously worked on shows like the X Files here in Vancouver and gave me a few tips on how to become an actor in Vancouver. Or surviving at the very least.
Have a great weekend everyone!
