Media has been truly expanding in Egypt, especially in the previous years. Which is why it’s quite natural that when we’re watching TV and a commercial pops by, the first thing we normally say is “Heey, I want to do that,” but then you automatically hear your parents shush you at how ridiculous the idea is, or maybe your friends are calling you naïve for thinking that you could ever do such a thing.
What if we could tell you, it is possible? You can be on TV? You read that right! Living in Egypt, it’s extremely easy to get into the field of modeling or acting altogether, all you have to do is really want to achieve such a goal.
You might think to yourself “but I’m not pretty enough” or “I’m too fat”, it’s normal to think that. While on the contrary, it is quite the opposite. This specific field is an open gateway to thousands of different characters, looks, sizes, and even age, it doesn’t matter! That’s the best part about the field, there are no limits and everyone can do it, it just depends on the theme of the commercial but other than that, it’s quite accessible.
Before getting into anything, you need to ask around and know quite well about what you’re get yourself into. First off, so that people won’t misguide you or even hut you down, and secondly so that you could have a great head start at understanding the do’s and don’ts. Get familiar and take your time, learn how to walk before you run!
There are multiple casting agencies or companies that take in people who are interested in entering such a field. For those of you who live in Mohandeseen, you’d be happy to know that most of the top casting house and agencies are located in the heart of Mohandeseen. For those of you who live in farther places, don’t worry there are other agencies scattered in several places , but on the other hand, you should know that Instagram is a powerful tool you could use for this field. Contact people, brands, agencies, you name it! Just get started somewhere and one thing will lead to another!
It is important for you to bare in mind that you should make friends rather than enemies, especially if you’re hoping to pursue being in the media field. Save contacts and remember names, that will help you learn more and get into the field even faster than expected!
Don’t be shy to start conversations or even take someone’s number, it’s your chance to break your inner barriers, let loose, and get a head start on stardom! You’ll notice that as the days go by and you get deeper into the field, confidence is key to everything, not your looks, not your way, nothing. The way you deal with people is very crucial for both your personal life and professional life.
Last but not least, remember that they want you to be yourself, they don’t want you copying Emma Watson, nothing. All they want is to see who you really are and build on the potential you deem to have. If you be yourself, you’ll stand out in the crowd more than rest and that will surely bring you more opportunities and even give you a sense of uniqueness. Imagine being an ordinary person amongst 500 people? Now that’s not unique. Be yourself, and what is yours will come to you.
There you have it folks, here are 5 easy hacks you could follow to dip your foot in the media field and start a fun journey up ahead. Being in the media field isn’t just about being famous or getting to know people, it is also about learning about yourself and what you’re capable of doing. Some people who have no background whatsoever in acting soon develop into big stars! I mean, Egypt is going places!
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church Suspends Services for One Month
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.
The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.
The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.
As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.
For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.
The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.
As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.
We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
