ACTORS: YOU ARE UNIQUE (10 Hollywood Casting Directors)
by Dov S-S Simens on August 10, 2015
ACTORS: Cold Auditions: How to Get Your First Part
Remember… “You are Unique”…. “You are a One & Only”… “No One Looks Like You”… “There is a Great Part Looking for You”…
There is a Producer, Ad Agency, Client and Casting Director that is looking for someone that looks exactly like you.
Now let’s find the Casting Director with the client, with that great part…. that is looking for you.
CASTING IS A NUMBERS GAME:
Yo Actors let’s get a job and, I repeat, always remember (A) No one looks like you and (B) you are Unique and original.
Now it becomes a numbers game. Get yourself out to enough “Cattlecalls” (aka: mass casting sessions, where you only have 2-3 minutes in front of the Director or Producer) in hopes of getting 2 “Callbacks” and a real acting job.
Every Pro Actor knows, unless you are famous, that you need to get 1 “CattleCall” and 2 “Callbacks” to get a gig.
Now, how do you find out about the 100-200 Casting Sessions going on every week in Los Angeles/Hollywood/Santa Monica/Burbank/etc.?
Simple. You get a Casting Director who is a subscriber of “Breakdown Services” (more on this site, which, for actors, is a super-super important site) that posts all the Casting Sessions and where to go and what time to show up for each “Audition”.
To find Casting Directors in your area, and especially, Hollywood then you should get the bi-monthly magazine called “CALL SHEET”. It is published by “BackStage”, the weekly trade newspaper for actors, and you can find it at all newsstands in LA, NY & Chicago.
1 CATTLE CALL & 2 CALL BACKS
