Obtaining a successful career in the entertainment industry can take a lot of time, effort, and a certain amount of luck. For many aspiring entertainers, it often takes years and years of grinding to get to the career of their dreams. So what are you to do in the meantime?

While dedication to your craft is vital to your success in the entertainment industry, you also won’t last too long as a “starving artist”. That’s where a side job or alternative career comes into play. 

In order to take care of their needs while pursuing their passion in the entertainment industry, many find it necessary to have some way of supporting themselves in the meantime. So, to help you find the right job for your situation, here are some of the best options for careers while you’re pursuing your entertainment dreams. 

Jobs with Time Flexibility

If you want to make it in the entertainment industry, you must have a flexible schedule that allows you to attend casting calls, auditions, readings, and interviews. However, most traditional careers have limited flexibility for things of this nature. Because of this, it’s vital for aspiring entertainers to find a job or career that will allow them the flexibility they need to continue going to these events.

Has there been a rising interest in sports these days? If you go to the cinema at all, you would certainly think so.

Not only have there been some prominent sports movies in recent years, it seems clear that the bar has been raised for the genre. In the 2009 hit “The Blind Side,” about the young football great Michael Oher, actress Sandra Bullock won the Academy Award's Oscar for Best Performance. And this year, at the Golden Globes award ceremony, Sylvester Stallone, the rugged, beefed up creator of the Rocky movie franchise, won a Golden Globe playing the elderly Rocky Balboa in last year's hit boxing movie, “Creed.”

The movies are a ready-made vehicle for sports stories. Sports are very dramatic and very visual, lending themselves well to the big screen. And there are any number of stories of glorious championships and of great efforts on the field—win, lose or draw.

As the new Disney powered Star Wars has set new world records that may never be beaten, not all movie goers are pleased. One movie critic is actually fuming. You may have never heard of the movie blogger Dylan Sporn, but once you read what he has to say, you will assuredly agree with him on some of the valid points that he makes. 

Same Story, Different Movie

If you ever saw Star Wars 4, 5 and 6, then you would know that this movie was basically a reboot that combined all three plots with a small twist. A rebel girl whose parents were killed, living in a desert town, who finds out later that she’s the last remaining Jedi. A Death Star like weapon that can kill four planets at once. The return of Han Solo and Company. The end fight to take out the Death Star-like weapon … there’s really nothing new at all.

Film is not only a form of entertainment, but also one of today’s best ways to learn about the world around us. Enchanting settings from Mother Nature’s many landscapes and environments allow for the creation of breathtaking documentaries. If you are on the side of the lens responsible for capturing nature in its glory, you must be well aware of safety precautions during the duration of the filming process for both you and your team.

The natural landscape and weather conditions vary vastly across the earth’s surface, giving you opportunities to explore many filming conditions, including a great deal of potentially dangerous ones. These include extreme cold, deserts, forests, mountains, aerial and underwater filming. Yet, they remain popular for their scenic beauty, naturally occurring wildlife and vegetation, and of course, man’s thirst for adventure and love for nature.
