My Take on "Gone Girl" During Oscar Season

             Gone Girl (2014) Poster

This is a story about a mans crazy life and crazy wife. On the morning of his anniversary Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) is sitting in his bar when he gets a phone call from his neighbor saying his front door is open. when he gets home to see why the door is open he notices his house is a disaster and his wife Amy Donne (Rosamund Pike) is missing. The next day Nick and his in-laws set up a search party to find the missing Amy. The police start to think that nick is the killer when something unexpected happens.

Some aspects of the film that i enjoyed is the plot and the acting. The plot in this film was pretty good but i think that they could of  made it better. They could of added more detail to make the film more in depth, and also could have stretched it out. Everything in the film happened extremely fast. The acting was also really good. Its was so good that Rosamund Pike got nominated for an Oscar for best performance by an actress in a leading role. The other actors and actresses also did a fantastic job in this film.
 
This story was a novel by Gillian Flynn before it was made into a film by David Fincher. The book and the movie both have the same story line but also have some differences. In the movie they left out a lot of details from the book. In my opinion I think that they should of put more of the details in the movie and made it a little better.

Overall this was a great movie and it also was a great book. This movie had great acting and plot. I think if you haven't seen this or read the book you should go check it out.

Struggles of Getting Involved

One thing that i don't really like is that it is very harder to get involved in the film industry. One thing that makes it difficult is if you have tattoos or piercings. Although it is harder it is still possible there is makeup to cover it up. This is hard for me because I have wanted a tattoo since i was a little kid an still really want one.

Something that also makes it hared to get involved is your location. If you are anywhere like I am I can be extremely difficult to get involved. I live in a small town where nothing goes on, especially anything involving the film industry. However if you are in a larger city such as Hollywood it makes it so much easier. Even thought it is going to be very hard to get into I still am going to try my hardest to get in.

Acting Classes at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts

                                              

The American Academy of Dramatic Arts is a program I want to get involved in. They have two different campuses one in New York and the other in Los Angeles. The campus I would like to attend is in Los Angeles. This program offers many different types of classes for all kinds of people. I would like to do a summer program that they have. This program does not cost as much as others, the summer class I want to do only cost $3750 for a 5 week program. For the 5 week program they also offer electives that you can take for an additional $250 each. This 5 week program goes from June 22 to July 24 of 2015. One of the electives I would be interested in is an improvisation class. Some of the other electives are Musical Theater, Stage Combat, Auditioning for the Camera, and many more. If needed, they offer housing for all of their summer classes. 

During the summer they also do a 2 week program at both campuses. This 2 week program does not cost as much as the 5 week this one only cost $1500. Although it is cheaper it does not offer any of the electives that the 5 week does but it still does offer the same housing. The two different times that they offer this 2 week program are July 13 to July 24 and the other is from July 27 to August 7. There is also one more time period but it is only offered in New York and it is form June 8 to June 19. If these programs do not get your interest they also offer many more, or if you do not like this academy there are so many more great schools and classes that you could choose from.

The Life of Becomming an Actor

On this here blog I well be talking about what it takes to get involved into an acting career and also other parts of the film industry. This topic peeked my interest because I'm going to try and start a carrier in this field and try and become an actor. I have been interested in starting an acting career ever since one if my good friends asked to have me in one of his short films he was going to be doing soon. Ever since he filmed this short with me I have wanted to be in front the camera even more. A little while after the first short he did another one and asked me to be a part of it and I automatically said yes without even asking what it was about. Even though neither of these projects lasted very long they both where very fun and a great new learning experience. To get involved in this industry I plan on moving down south around the Hollywood area and going to a performing arts school. While going to school I want to try and get onto some movie or TV sets. If I get to go onto sets I well try and get to meet more people so that I have a better connection in the film industry because the more connections you have the eraser it well get. The people you meet then we'll introduce you to there friends and then there friends and so on. I already have a few people I know down in Hollywood that are involved in film and the film industry. I am dying to learn about the film industry, because i want to get involved in it and it well be really fun and interesting to learn about. Also doing this blog well help me learn how to get in to this career because its going to be a hard field to get into.
