How do i start my acting career with literally no resources?
I've watched youtube videos on the subject and seen others post answers regarding head shots, agents etc. however my circumstances make it difficult for me to know where to start. I'm 22 years old and ive wasted the last 4yrs of my life by not doing all that i can and just "wondering" so to speak. Now that i have had some reality checks i feel its time to get on the train. I have a part time job making about 300 bucks every two weeks and i live with my grandmother. I guess you could say is that i feel i dont have the resources like most have had and do have these days. (parents for one, and parents who can finance what you need because as most know breaking into the business is an investment) i have no such resources and i know i have to be in LA amidst it all to start auditioning, searching for representation, management etc. I simply feel that i don't have enough resources at hand in order to start the d**n thing and it's frustrating. Theres so much to regard and i feel im in "stuck-mode". Where do i start? Answers, question etc anything please to help me focus on starting to seize whats important to me. Thank you.
