Most of the networking events I’ve found designed for actors just turn out to be a bunch of actors standing around talking to a bunch of actors, and that’s what people think networking is. They’re wrong. These types of events are not going to get you anywhere.
The most immediately visible piece of your packaged product is your headshot. This is your logo. And it’s the first thing casting directors see before deciding whether to book you. So, when planning your headshots, above all, prepare, prepare, prepare!
But one of the standouts has always been Doreen Calderon in the first year of working with Actors’ Fast Track she booked 4 roles on TV and 2 National commercials. Doreen also has a business called The Recognized Actor http://www.dcdesign8.com/
That is the secret SELLING or as I like to say: CONSISTENT SALES to your CUSTOMER BASE. An Actors customer base are generally Casting Directors, Producers, Writers and Directors, these are the people Actor’s must focus on!!
Not for our client and coach Brian Majestic!! He wrote a letter over a year ago that just resulted in 5 recurring episodes of General Hospital. Or our friend Duane Whitaker that booked a straight to offer Guest Star on a FX show based on a letter he wrote over a year before!!
