Building a Strong foundation. IT is always good to remind ourselves of things we feel we already know. Sometimes knowing them and applying them are two different things. Here is a great article by Mae Ross for BackStage on the 7 tips for networking in Hollywood. http://www.backstage.com/advice-for-actors/backstage-experts/7-tips-networking-film-industry/
I know preparing for that headshot session can be nerve-wracking. There are so many factors to consider to get that shot that is going to get you in that casting door. If you haven’t read Matt Newton’s article 7 Tips for a Better Headshot, over at Backstage.com I suggest you read through it. It’s a really insightful article that breaks down some basics every actor/model should think about when going into their session.
“If you want people to take you seriously, you must have a good, high quality, killer headshot”. Matt Newton’s article 7 Tips for a Better Headshot
I couldn’t agree more!
I get a lot of clients that come to me because they want beautiful shots for their promotional website. They always say the same thing “I want this to look really good cause I’m making a website”! I always tell them, you’ll get the shots, but how you lay out your website is just as important. So it does irk me when I check in with them later and they’ve placed some great images on a poorly designed site.
