Here are some ideas on maximizing your performance opportunities that may come your way, or the creation of opportunities in the first place.

Having an agent

An agent can get your face seen in the places you just could not. This increases the likelihood that you work. The changes that make the balls hit! But there are many opportunities to act that are without an agent. Although almost all movies, TV, and Off Broadway productions of Broadway exclusively use agent submissions, you can still find work without an agent. Community Dinner Theatre, students and some independent films actors will be represented.
The more experience and skills that are most likely an agent will take you on. An agent makes money when it works, so they will be willing to sign up if you can demonstrate what is a resource that will be for them. There is nothing wrong with sending a resume and Headshot (more on that later), but it is essential that you send tracking cards to let the agent know where and when to work, so they can see for themselves what a good actor who is.


CV help, that help to get an agent, but once you have one, your agent uses to go audition. There are some rules for resumes, here are are the most important.

Keep to one page (8.5 x 11), if more than one page of the pages might get separated and lost information.

It is clean. People have managed to get around the above restriction using a small font size is a matter of opinion, but if the type is too small will be difficult to read.

The Headshot must be recent, but the use of a photograph that shows him in his absolute best.

Make sure all your contact information is correct, it is also an idea to create a specific email address for correspondence as this can prevent deleting essential emails.

The great tip for resumes is NOT LIE! We all have somewhat exaggerated in an application form at any time, but we must be very careful what you say you can do in your resume. future opportunities could be in danger if you are and you look ridiculous if it has been riding on the motorcycle as a skill and on his first day on set I have to admit just to get the part.


Most acting opportunities are focused in large cities like New York and Los Angeles, but the cultures of other opportunities throughout the country, some of which I mentioned in the opening paragraph. The trade can be lucrative for car dealerships, restaurants and local stores. These are usually produced by local agencies that normally use the local talent because it is easier and cheaper to fly into a person in Los Angeles The director is still only hire actors with the relevant skills and look, but you can improve your chances if you have a different or "ethnically ambiguous" look, that is, if you can pass more than one type of race.

Thanks for taking the time to read this article, I hope that has given you some ideas on maximizing your acting opportunities.I hope that helped and gave him some ideas.
