New Year, New Opportunities
Holy Cannoli! It’s 2016! Time to start the year all over again and jump on those opportunities that will surely present themselves. We all make resolutions, here is one you can finally keep! Make a resolution to be the best talent you can this year.
Here are a few tips that can get you ready to for the after the holidays season!
1. Check in with your Agent:Send updated photos, resume, sizes, and materials. This is a great time to make sure that your agent is up to date on all your information. Update Casting sites, websites, Youtube, and Reels.
Another thing I suggest at the beginning of the year is to send your Agent a video check in. When I was an Agent, I adored these. Make a 60-90 second video, saying hello, or introducing yourself, (if you have never met), and state a few of your goals for the year.
2. Get Back Into Classes: Inevitably, you’ve probably taken a small hiatus from your lessons to enjoy the holidays, but now is the time to get back into the swing of things! Season picks right back up after the holidays with Pilot season in the forefront, and you must be prepared. So get your booty back in with your coach, or classes!
3. Update your Materials: This feeds back into number 1. This is a great time to make sure everything you have is up to date. Make sure your resume is tweaked, and all those jobs you booked over the last few months are added, likewise on all your casting sites. It is not your agent's job to do this. Make sure they are all up to date, all conflicts included.
Also, make sure you are taping yourself regularly to maintain your Youtube, and Casting site videos. These should be a reflection of your current ability and look.
4. Be Available: Make sure you're checking your phone and email regularly for agent interaction! They cannot book you, or send you on an audition, if they cannot reach you. So make sure your ringer and notifications are turned on, and check regularly.
Happy 2016 Everyone, I pray it is a blessed and busy one!
