Top 10 Careers For the Entertainer

There is more to entertainment than movies, music, and the entire glamor that could come with it. The entertainment industry is diverse and offers a myriad of opportunities to explore your talent. Today, consumers are increasingly interested in different forms of entertainment other than the mainstream films and music, even though these two fields remain the most popular.

Here are some of the lesser-known but increasingly promising career paths for aspiring entertainers:

Choreographer

Choreographers may not always take the center stage in a musical performance, television show or movie. But, they are entertainers in their own right as dancers and as dance coaches. A choreographer creates dance routines for all sorts of settings including live performances, ballroom dancing, television performances, corporate events, and music videos.

Cartoonist

 

What makes cartoonists a special breed of entertainers is that they have a remarkably different perspective towards life than most people. Cartoonists entertain by seeing the humor in everyday events and convey this comicality through comic strips or entire graphic novels.

Stuntman

Just because you are not in the main cast of an action film does not mean you cannot come close enough to the real action. Stuntmen and women are highly sought after entertainers in both films and pseudo-reality shows. There are obvious risks involved in this career path, but which career comes with no risk?

Writer

Scriptwriters or screenwriters may not be as popular as actors, radio hosts, TV presenters and talk show hosts but they are indispensable entertainers. In fact, there wouldn’t be any entertainment industry to refer to if there were no writers to create the necessary content that is transformed into films, documentaries, radio and television shows.

Professional Photographer

From working in the movies, to television shows to lifestyle magazines, an entertainment photographer has one of the most dynamic and exciting jobs in showbiz. Entertainment photography has the potential to put you right in the middle of the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry.

Professional speaker

Professional speakers are paid to speak about their topics of specialization. Speaking does not always entail talking about complex or serious topics—there are professional speakers whose specialization is lighthearted, amusing topics such as political satire, art, or music.

Professional comedian

 

There was a time when comedy was relegated to solo-performances in nightclubs and smoky bars. Today, professional comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld, Russell Peters or Kevin Hart and comediennes such as Lisa Lampanelli and Tig Notaro have made it on the Forbes list of the top earning entertainers. It may not be easy to make people laugh but if you are good at it, comedy can be a lucrative career choice.

Concept artist

 

Concept artists are central to the creation of animation films, movies and games. They are in charge of making intangible concepts visually attractive. Concept artists simply clarify the artistic concepts whether that is in a game, a cartoon or a movie by creating images through 3D modeling or paintings.

Professional magician

David Copperfield comes to mind when you think of an exceptionally successful magician. Just like other entertainers, magicians must be extremely proficient to earn the kind of fame and success that the top magicians are presently enjoying.

Game creative director

 

 

Candy Crush Saga, Angry Birds Trilogy, Hay Day—these are just a few of some of the highest grossing games. Creative directors working in game studios are the brains behind these popular games. The creative director develops the game concept and is often the main designer working alongside the game producer.
