Your Questions About How To Discover New Artists

Paul asks…

What is a way to get discovered without an agent?

When you don’t have money and live in Minnesota. I really need information. I am only eleven and I cant really get out some where else. I know acting isn’t the only thing in the world but I love it and I want to be discovered.

New Niche Finder answers:

The best advice that I can give you is to do as much acting as you can, whether in school plays,local and community theaters. I know that any actor’s dream (no matter what their age) is to be discovered but this rarely happens. I don’t say this to discourage you at all, just so that you’ll have some more realistic goals. Most all of the big actors, on stage and on screen, had to work their way up and learn to fine tune their craft and get pointers from those who are more experienced; it’s all part of the acting trade.

I think it’s wonderful that you love acting so much. It’s a great outlet and a good way to increase confidence and speaking skills. Keep doing it and who knows what may happen some day?

Also, be very careful of any adults who say they can help make you a “star” or something like that because there are a lot of con artists who will make promises like that and they turn out not to be true. Even adults can fall for things like that, so be careful of anyone who may do this.

Best of luck to you

Daniel asks…

What should I major in if I want to find songs/music for shows, movies, etc.?

What should I major in if I want to find music/songs for shows, movies, commercials, etc.? I know a lot of good songs that can go with some situations or themes, and I enjoy discovering new artists and music, myself, as well as study performing (instruments mostly) and visual arts.

Is there an “educational plan” that may satisfy my interests?

New Niche Finder answers:

Music theory and composition.

I don’t know much about makeup and consider myself challenged in all areas of personal primping (that’s why professionals are required) …. But ….
Don’t all of the makeup companies that offer sales in your home (Mary K, Avon, etc) offer training for their new recruits?
It’s not exactly what you’re looking for maybe but it would be an opportunity to help women discover their best look and make some money at the same time. You could even pay for school with what you make as a representative for one of these companies.
I’ve known Mary K rep’s who worked in community theater as makeup artists (volunteer only).
I do NOT recommend charging anyone for your services as a makeup artist without proper licensing. You need education in all kinds of areas, including; diseases of the skin, eyes, etc, hygiene, proper care of products, & so much more. You also need a business license.
If you try to advertise and work without a license, licensed makeup artists will turn you in to the Makeup Artist Police. You could be in hot water, lose any chance of ever becomming licensed, and possibly in trouble with Uncle Sam for tax issues.
Cosmetology school can be expensive but scholarships are always available.
If this is your passion, isn’t it worth doing it right?

Richard asks…

Which current musician reminds you most of Cat Stevens?

I really love his music, and know he isn’t making new secular music any more. Who else sings with power about issues/feelings/ideas that matter, not just re-warmed love songs. Any ideas? Is there someone I am missing? I’d love to discover a new artist. Please consider starring my question if you are searching for the same thing.

New Niche Finder answers:

I don’t know cat stevens’ stuff, but based on your description, I would suggest listening to Eddie Vedder or Pearl Jam. They have songs about past experiences, anti-bush, etc.
