Jobs in the Performing Arts Business!
Transcript of Jobs in the Performing Arts Business!
Let's be honest; without choreographers, a show would be far from organized. A choreographer has more jobs than just creating dances. They have to make sure there is a place for everyone at the same time, all enthusiasm is involved, ensuring that not an inch of a show looks remotely sloppy. However, being a choreographer requires nearly a lifetime of experience; whether that's with dance or acting. The business wants people who know what they're doing and how they want it!
Jobs in the Performing Arts Business!
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about performing arts are actors. However, there are varied types of actors, whose jobs are totally different.
You may be thinking; what does technology have to do with the performing arts business? A lot, my friend. Without camera crew and technological consultants there would be no Eastenders or Hollyoaks or TOWIE. They are the ones who put the show together, making it the best it can be. Including special effects, background music and shot angles ect! It'd be incredibly boring having a whole show in just one shot! And all of this is checked, approved of, and under charge of the technical director. They have help, of course, but without them - shows would be an absolute mess.
Where would we be without directors? They control and create the works of art that is performing arts. Many think that directors have it easy, sitting in their special chair, when actually they couldn't be more wrong. The director needs to direct to his actors best points to show off their talents - doing things his way would just be a bore and create a bad working environment causing the actors to either not feel comfortable with their job or even not do it to the best of their ability!
What jobs connect to the business?
There a many different kinds of jobs in the performing arts business, not necessarily acting.
There are jobs involving technology, mathematics, literacy, media and more. Some of which you wouldn't think connect to the business when actually they do!
You know them. All the dramatic storylines. It's a wonder why they haven't gone insane with all the drama happening in their neighbourhoods. Because, let's face it, if as much shocking stuff like that happened to us all the time we'd probably be in a mad house! But that's the great thing about soaps and the actors involved, they endure so much drama purely for our entertainment. From houses on fire to being kidnapped on their wedding day, they give the viewers a sense of thrill that they don't experience in their everyday lives.
These actors have it quite easy when it comes to performing, if they get a line wrong or mess up they can simply start again with no worry. Their scenes are never that long either; and with so many other characters involved, they don't have many lines to learn either.,
This is a more creative type of acting. It involves singing, dancing and acting. There a many famous musical theatre productions enjoyed by millions, but not everyone realizes how much effort is put in to making these shows so amazing.
Unlike soaps or movies, it's not possible to just have a "take 2", the actor must get it right first time round in order to present a good performance.
On February 19th 2010, Eastenders did their first ever live show. However, proof that the actors are not used to being under pressure of live performances is clearly shown. Even technological crew mess up too!
Tim Burton is one of the worlds most famous film directors, and some of his techniques can be found in most of his movies. Let's take a look at some..
Tim Burton enjoys making his actors look as pale as possible, and these characters have ended up becoming loved world wide; settling that the pale makeup is one of his best techniques.
What better to explain his characters pain than through flashbacks? This technique is also used in many of his films. Eg:
"The Corpse Bride" - Emily singing about her death.
"Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" - Charlie thinking back on his childhood.
"Edward Scissorhands" - Edward thinking about his inventor/father's death and his life at the mansion.
Producers are highly self-motivated individuals, who have the final responsibility for all aspects of a production. There are multiple types of producers; film, music, stage performance. Nonetheless, they have a lot of stuff on their hands. They have overall control of everything that happens in a production; whether that's costumes, lighting, or overall opinion. They must have many abilities; the ability to secure finance, ability to prepare and control the production budget, excellent communication skills and more.
Those in the administration field manage activities and services which support the arts, involving projects.
A funding officer's job is to get the money needed for a particular production. They develop a funding plan to diversify the organizations funding base and are responsible for securing for all theatre services.
