How to Own Your Own Star Quality

Taking Front Stage

If you want to be a movie star or any of the other coveted roles in Hollywood, you need to own your own star quality. How do you do that?  You can’t be afraid to take front stage and strut your stuff.

Stage fright is common, even among famous celebrities, movie stars, pop artists and television personalities. So what if you experience a little fear. Successful people act in spite of fear.

5 Tips To Own Your Own Star Quality

1.  Be confident. People who exude confidence naturally attract the attention of others.

2.  Become an expert in your craft.  Experience builds confidence so practice practice practice until you’re perfect.  There’s a saying “perfect practice makes perfect.”  When you feel like you’ve mastered your craft, you will naturally emanate that to others.

3.  Find avenues to take front stage.  Perform for an audience so you get accustomed to being in front of people. If you are an actor, join acting groups. If you sing, get some singing gigs. If you are a musician, join a band and perform in public.

4.  Be natural, be authentic, be original, be engaging and be entertaining.

5.  If you make a mistake, laugh it off and make a joke about it, especially if you have an audience.  People love to laugh and they’ll think it’s part of your act.  The most important thing is not to beat yourself up if you make a mistake. Correct and continue.

How to Dress and Look Like a Star at Celebrity Events

Own Your Own Star Quality

If you find yourself on the red carpet or at an event with celebrity stars, make sure you dress for success.  You only get to make a first impression once.  So whether you’re a man or a woman, don’t be afraid to put on your best attire and strut your stuff so you wow them and turn heads.

Wardrobe Tips

Here are some tips to help you look the part of a celebrity so you feel good and garner attention.

For women, wear something flattering to your figure with a little color so you stand out against the backdrop where you will have your professional photograph taken.  A black tie or fancy cocktail dress that shows a little skin will do the trick.

For men, wear something chic like a hip black suit or tux (depending on the dress code).

Make sure you are comfortable in whatever you wear.

Wear fancy shoes.  Believe it or not, people look at your feet.

For women, wear soft make-up so you look natural.

For women, wear your hair in a soft up-do or styled down.

Tips to Amplify Your Magnetic Personality

Always smile.  Smiles go miles and it helps to amplify your magnetic personality. When you smile, you shine and naturally attract the attention of others.

Be confident and engaging.  Don’t be shy. Talk to everyone, including celebrities.  It’s okay to be a social butterfly at these events.  You are strutting your stuff and networking with like-minded successful people.

If you are shy, bring a camera and take photos of the people you would like to talk to.  The moment you snap their photo, they turn their attention to you and smile.  It’s a great ice-breaker.

Maintain a positive attitude and expect miracles.  Remember, you earned the right to be there and you belong.  So own it!

8 Ways to Promote Yourself and Your Film at a Film Festival

Come Prepared to Network at a Film Festival

Once your film is accepted to a film festival, you want to make the most of the opportunity to promote yourself and your film because there will be influential people there. Distributors and film industry folks look for filmmakers who can promote themselves and their films because it shows that you are in tune with the business of Hollywood and you have what it takes to make it.

Here are a few tips that I’ve learned along the way that have worked for me and others in taking their film careers to the next level. If you know these networking secrets ahead of time, you’ll come prepared and be able to shine and make the most of this extraordinary opportunity.

8 Secrets to Promote Yourself and Your Film

1.   Show up and show off.  Dress to impress so you feel good. When you feel good,  you look good and you’re more apt to feel confident and talk to others.  Be yourself.  Be engaging and engage others. Don’t be shy or let your mind take you out of the game.  Everyone is there to network and meet people, and that includes meeting you!  If the press is there interviewing people, introduce yourself as one of the filmmakers so you get interviewed.

2.   Bring tons of business cards to hand out and make sure to ask people for their business cards.  Send follow up emails and/or call the people you met so you can build on the relationships and begin working together.

3.   Bring a full size movie poster of your film and put it up in the movie theater where the film festival is taking place.  People look at movie posters in deciding if it’s a movie they want to see and film festivals encourage you to post them where your movie is screening.

4.   Bring one-sheets with your film and the time it is showing.  It is basically an 8 1/2  x 11 of your movie poster with the date, time and place on it.  You will be able to put those out on a table for people to take so they will see your film.  Make sure the one-sheet is professional, colorful and dynamic to capture their attention.

5.   Bring postcards with your film information on it to hand out to the press and people in the film industry.  You can get stacks of them made with generic log lines, images and contact information and then print and add labels on the back of the postcard with the time, date and place for each festival showing as needed.   This is a common practice in the independent film festival circuit.  You can also add the official selection icons to your postcards.

6.   Bring a camera and take pictures of everybody.  Post them on your websites and social networking sites and tag the people you met.  Hollywood is about publicity and people love to see themselves looking glamorous, especially stars.  It is also a great way to break the ice when you meet someone.

7.   Make sure you have a teaser or movie trailer for your film on Youtube so you can bring it up on your smart phone to show people to showcase your talent and entice them to see your film.

8.   Have a packaged DVD of your film ready to hand to influential industry people who cannot make the screening of your film.
