The Influence and Promises of Film and Television
The film and television industry strongly holds the prestige of influence among its audience and consumers in general. Its genre, plot, actors, and script lines are collectively decisive of the career of the actors as well as the directors and production designers who make marvel on the project behind the cameras.
Commonly, the role the heroes and villains portray in the movie or a TV show affects how the audience deals with their situations in real life. Many look up to those actors as their role model and try to emulate their own life after the scenes or plot in a movie or show where the actors’ influence was overwhelming. There are fans who technically pattern their personal lifestyles according to how their favoured actors live their life and that includes diet, fashion, and advocacies.
At times, actors may even efficiently directly or indirectly shape up the public’s opinion. For these reasons, movie or TV actors may simultaneously appear as an endorser of various beauty and skin care products, fashion and footwear, sports gear and all other commercial commodities which heavily rely on advertisements for impressive sales. Actors also largely make up the line up of public personalities and may do well for goals such as information dissemination or cause awareness programs, and even winning in political battles.
Also for the same reason, many States which have for their government a conservative create an agency which is tasked to regulate the scenes of TV shows and movies and rate them according to the audience’s age. Scenes which speak of violence or which contain sensitive materials such as dangerous drugs, prostitution and sexual intercourse are not easily available to minors; or if they are, supervision of their parents or guardians is required in order that the minors may have an accurate grasp of how scenes take place on the screen.
In some countries however, there held a concept or debate that the film and television industry may partly mould how teenagers behave or in what situation they may have entrapped themselves with such as early pregnancy, being involved in alcoholic drinking and other similar pitiful plights especially if the favoured actors are personally involved. On the other hand, actors who rectified their mistakes or who are classified as victims but emerged as a fighter in their own battle or cause may provoke the attention and interests of the public.
Millions desire to engage in film and television—be that in acting, production making, or directing—not only because of what it attractively offers but also because to some, they have the passion for acting. Though the path to a successful career in show business is rocky and tough, its perks and advantages may be overwhelming and worthy once the actors have finely weathered the obstacles they may have encountered along the way.
Besides fame and influence, the film and television industry may afford wealth to successful actors, television or silver screen. In the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and some parts in Asia, acting, creative writing, and filmmaking are actually being taught in a university or film and television-exclusive institutions. Admission is highly competitive, but after graduating, the students may have a greater chance of landing a role in a movie or TV show. Some may be offered even as early as on their freshman or sophomore year.
