Advice for Actors




Agents are a great resource for talent.

However, whether or not you have one, it is still your responsibility to ensure that casting directors know who you are and what you can do.

Remember, there is no substitute for self-marketing when it comes to finding success in any television, film & commercial industry market.

Remember, a headshot that does not represent you accurately will only hinder our ability to use you in the future.


INVARIABLY, TRAINING makes the difference between the people who get the jobs and those left wondering why they didn’t.  Whether you are a beginner just starting out in the industry or a seasoned veteran, no intelligent actor ever believes that they “know it all.”  Continuous training throughout a career is what gives actors staying power in the fiercely competitive market of television, film & commercials.
