 ADVICE FOR THE ARTS GRAD 
 

While it may not apply to everyone in Community Theatre, it is still good advice for all us "artistes":

Exerpt from Robert De Nior's NYU Commencemnt Speech:
(quoted from Ashley Lee's article in "The Hollywood Reporter" May 22, 2015)


Robert De Niro stated the truth at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts graduation on Friday: "You made it — and, you're f—ed."

At the Madison Square Garden-set ceremony, he bluntly noted that graduates with degrees in nursing, dentistry, business, law and education all have a future of stability ahead of them — a choice those other students made using reason and logic, but one that the crop of performers could not ever make.

"You discovered a talent, developed an ambition and recognized your passion. When you feel that, you can't fight it — you just go with it," he explained. "When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense. You aren't just following dreams, you're reaching for your destiny. ... You're an artist — yeah, you're f—d. The good news is that's not a bad place to start."

The actor and Tribeca Film Festival co-founder continued his frank speech by clarifying what's ahead. "Now that you've made your choice — or, rather, succumbed to it — your path is clear. Not easy, but clear. You have to keep working, it's that simple. You got through Tisch, that's a big deal. Or, to put it another way, you got through Tisch? Big deal!

"A new door is opening for you — a door to a lifetime of rejection. It's inevitable," he warned of post-graduate life. "How do you cope? I hear that Valium and Vicodin work! ... You don't want to block the pain too much. Without the pain, what would we talk about?"

"Rejection might sting, but my feeling is that often, it has very little to do with you. When you're auditioning or pitching, the director or producer or investor may have someone different in mind, that's just how it is. That happened recently when I was auditioning for the role of Martin Luther King in Selma! Which was too bad because I could've played the hell out of that part — I felt it was written for me! But the director had something different in mind, and she was right. It seems the director is always right."
