Showbiz is a lucrative arena in the world of Entertainment. It’s proliferation in Africa has left a desirable mark to it’s lovers and fans. Showbiz in Cameroon is as young as the County’s senate. This has made Showbiz aspirants timid to an extent of copying and pasting foreign styles and tactics. The differences in cultures and environmental realities makes it difficult for Showbiz to actually gain its deserved reputation.
Showbiz as an interesting field has its own upheavals which may scare many from venturing into.In as much as there are difficulties, there are so many benefits of showbiz which tend to outweigh the drawbacks.The burning question that springs to the mind is, how can the challenges in showbiz be overcome for many to reap from the bounty of showbiz ?
Whether you’re a talented singer-songwriter or a writer looking to pen sitcoms, the entertainment industry is one place that has a career for just about anyone.
Everyone loves entertainment. Whether you’re into romantic weepies, punk rock, or the Food Network, there’s a niche to fit virtually every artistic taste. TV, film, music, theater, and even radio continue to be strongholds in the vast world of entertainment, but with the growth of the Internet and digital media, new technologies only increase the ways in which we are entertained- and the opportunities to make your own career a part of that process.
Plus, you don’t have to be a performer to participate. Do you love the magic of movies, but have no desire to get in front of the camera? Are you a music buff, but can’t sing to save your life? Never fear. Although entertainment is usually equated with the big-name movie stars and musicians that make it seem so glamorous in the first place, it could not exist without the thousands of professionals that create, produce, and support the films, TV shows, theater productions, and radio programs that we so eagerly consume.
Advertising, engineering, business, sales, and production are just a few of the areas that are fundamental to the entertainment industry that can make great careers for non-performers. Although a college degree isn’t as necessary as talent and experience are for an aspiring performer, it’s often a requisite in other fields. A degree in accounting, finance, or business is necessary to work in the financial arena. Degrees in journalism and communications are most practical for careers in television and radio broadcasting. Movie studios and production companies have lawyers, too, but you’re going to need that law degree to be one.
As varied as its career opportunities may be , with so many creative, driven people seeking to break into the industry, the entertainment industry is a dog-eat-dog world. If you think you’re interested in a career in entertainment, start gaining experience as early as possible; and while everyone would love to work for MTV, be willing to think more realistically and embrace any experience. Get involved with film and theater productions on campus. Work for your college radio station. Take your love of entertainment seriously and invest all of the enthusiasm, persistence, and talent you have, and you could be in for the ride of a lifetime.
