If you are serious about your acting career, you need to land a talent agent to represent you. You also need to submit your photos and resumes to casting directors who audition actors. You need to study acting with the best coaches. You need the proper paperwork and permits to be able to work in the many locations that filming takes place these days. You need the best headshots that you can afford, because your headshots are your calling-card to the industry. I highly recommend getting the 2014 Actors Resource Guide eBooks which have comprehensive listings of the top talent agents, casting directors, acting teachers and schools, headshot photographers and photo duplication services, work permits and visa information and applications, and much more important lists and information. The eBooks are available for many locations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Open Casting Call - GLTV Cohosts Positions 

Gay Life Television will be holding an open casting call Friday July 11th at our studios on 4111 Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh, PA! The casting call will be for a new drag show we will be producing called "The Nomi Show" (https://nomidarling.squarespace.com/). We will be looking for two roles:

Cohost 2 (25-90): A woman, preferably not in the drag scene. I need personality, perhaps a little brash and uncouth. I'm looking for my Edith Massey.

Cohost 3 (20-90): A drag queen who will be playing a different character every episode. Versatility and comedy chops are a must.

Improv skills are nice but this is a scripted show, so your ability to read a script is what we're looking for.

FILM SYNOPSIS: In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a passionate father is so devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills, training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a rigorous classical education, and introducing them to the beauty of the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey that challenges his unorthodox parenting.

PLEASE CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY FOR ADDITIONAL CASTING NEEDS



Ok, so here are 5 things that YOU can do to land more auditions through your talent agent:

1) Create Your Own Content - http://www.backstage.com/interview/drew-droege-wants-you-create-content/

2) Have the BEST headshots that you can possibly have! - http://www.martahewson.com/blog/2013/11/the-importance-of-a-professional-headshot/

3) Do plays, community theater and INVITE agents and casting directors to your performances. And PLEASE send them FREE tickets - http://www.castingsociety.com/member-directory

4) Promote the living daylights out of yourself with TOP Paid Press releases for your work! - http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/accountmanager/pr_submission_step_1.php?plan=mmv

5) Join SAG-AFTRA and attend the SAG-AFTRA events, volunteer with as many union committees as time allows, and sign up for the Casting Access Project (CAP)! - http://www.sagfoundation.org/programs/cap

DO these things and give your agent more tools that they can use to land you MORE auditions! And just remember that being signed with a legit (Association of Talent Agents ATA) agent is not something to be taken for granted. It is VERY hard to find an agent that will go-to-bat for you. IF you give your agent a few tools that they can use, they WILL work harder for you. Agents WANT to make money, and they WANT you to get booked. Do your own footwork, and your agent will work harder for you. Submit YOURSELF for everything that you can find! When you audition, BE the best that you can be, and leave NOTHING on the table. That way, you can not lose. Acting is a job that you must land. It is not up to your agent to get you the job, but rather it is up to YOU to get the job. Your agent is only someone who is trying to get you auditions. YOU are your own commodity, and it is YOUR job to land the role! Now go out there and land the role!
