Important Modeling and Acting Tips!

Posted on Updated on

Talent tips
1- When you are booked for any job write down the director, producer, casting director, TV Network etc.. You need this info. for your resume.  Also remember the part you played. ( If it was extra work you must put that in a separate Extra category not acting). Always update your resume the day you do the project . You would not believe the amount of work people lose out on because their resumes are not updated.

2- To insure payment when you are booked on a job please remember to bring appropriate ID and fill out all forms legibly and correctly. Also keep track of the dates you work and what job it was just in case.

3- Keep your look close to the photos we use to promote you, or  you must update the photos. Clients really get upset when you do not match your photo or if we send you out to meet them and you have gained or lost weight, have longer hair or a different color we could lose that client permanently.

.4- Never say a negative word on set. Even among fellow actors or models. Even about other agencies. It never helps you or us in the long run! Let’s take the high road even though many people and agencies don’t.
5- A  successful Modeling and Acting career is  like any other career it takes time, persistence, dedication, knowledge, skill and patience!
6- Many National Clients take their sweet time to pay you. Even when we bill them with a 30 day voucher. We hate it as bad as you do(we all have bills to pay). We will do everything in our power to collect but it has always been that way and will probably never change with the big national companies. They know they get allot of people work so if you harass them too much they will just use someone else.
7- Do not accept an audition unless you are 100% sure you can make it and be on time. Usually we are limited in the time slots we have and we do not have time to replace you. We also give the casting director a list the night before and they will too be busy the next day of the audition for us to schedule someone else with them. They  just figure you are unreliable.
8- No matter how you feel inside you have to portray self confidence when you are interviewed. Clients never hire people who let them know they are new at this or who are not a polished finished product.
9- Don’t show it or be shocked if the audition is not what you visualized. A pro expects it to always be different and is ready to make quick on the spot adjustments. They almost want it to be tough because they know the amateur will let it effect them. Half of success in this business is being very adaptable on the fly. That is why  it takes raining and experience for many of the jobs.
10- Always just have fun with this business. Clients love to be around smiling , funny, happy people. Many actors, models get too serious when they audition because they feel the pressure.
11- If a client ask  you what your rate is say call my agent  or let us know.  That is our job and we will make sure to get documents signed if needed  and get you the best rate possible for that type of project. Usually clients that do not want to initially go through agents will either never pay or low ball you or work in an unprofessional manner. Plus you are responsible to let the agency know about  these projects.
12- If you need an agent research the Better Business Bureau, call your local Film Commission and ask casting directors who they use. If you live in Utah, Idaho or Wyoming contact the Craze Agency 801-438-0067, http://www.crazeagency.com
