Students in China applying to fine arts colleges are taking their entrance exams and auditions, usually the culmination of months, if not years, of preparation. And, for some, the process even involves relocation to gain a foothold in a fiercely competitive environment.

The Beijing Film Academy is known as the “school of the stars,” and students from all across China are willing to go the extra mile, if not thousands of miles, to get a place.


Students auditioning for the acting major are asked to dance, sing a capella, or play an instrument, in addition to performing improvisation and monologues.
 
While the auditions are underway, one student outside is warming up and getting ready for her big day.
 
"I just have a small dream that one day I would be able to stand on a stage in front of an audience," Wang Yiduo said.
 
Wang did not get to have the audience she wanted; she was rejected for arriving late for the audition. But she stayed, because she did not want to give up hope, rehearsing her monologues again and again.
 
"My mom quit her job in Shaanxi half a year ago to come to Beijing with me so that I can get ready for this audition. Since I was a girl, I started to study ballroom dance, painting, and the piano, and dance is something that really makes me happy," she said.


Many parents cheered her on while waiting for their children to audition. According to a 2011 national survey, only 30 percent of acting majors graduates go on to find employment in their field. But, despite the bleak statistics, students applying for the major have more than quadrupled in the last decade.
 
After an hour, students start to come out. And for Wang, it was over.
 
"I wish that I would've been given a chance and that we are not judged by just a few minutes in the audition room. I think, to become an actor, one has to be ready to overcome many hurdles and challenges in life, and I'm ready to do that," she said.(英文文本 via CNTV)
