Perfect Headshot Part 2– Wear clothes you’re comfortable in! I like having 1 business shot, 1 for sitcoms, & the 1 “hero” power shot
Remember– agents are people too. We meet with actors b/c we want to get to know THEM better as people as well as their career pursuits.
(cont) avoid labels or clothing fads (aka none of those bowler hats). Remember, these 3 headshots need to cover many different roles
Today is meeting after meeting, haha. First 1 was w/one of my actors as a refresher. We talked sports, politics, tv, THEN his career.
(cont) ambiguity is key to your headshot. You should look and see several different characters come out of one shot!
Entertainment is not a business where you accrue vacation days and can take them w/o responsibilities. That goes for actors AND agents.
When u get that first bit of success (ur first recurring/series regular/lead)– stay humble, stay grounded & send ur agent a gift 🙂
My vacation comes during Xmas when the industry is closed. If I’m home for a wedding, I’m still submitting and pitching up until the I dos!
Everyone enjoy your weekend! 🙂
Note: If you have a meeting with an agent, even if he/she is doing it as a favor to someone, don’t show up 23 minutes late. We get angry.
As a boutique agent, I respect Jon Cryer, why? He took the time to “thank my old agents who got me this job.” Classy 🙂
Guest star actors that haven’t booked lately: consider taking co-star auditions. Great way to refresh casting on your talent.
Do the ends justify the means? Debating if I think my client should do a reality acting competition show…
Had a client go in today for a co-star, casting called and said they rather book him instead for a guest star in their next episode. Awesome
