Actors, so many of the casting directors are requesting VIDEO AUDITIONS FOR THE FIRST AUDITION (CALLBACKS ARE USUALLY IN PERSON.).
At the February Workshop, Robyn Nolting gave a great demonstration of how to tape your auditions.
For those of you who can't tape your auditions, Robyn can tape them for you at her home in Metairie. The cost is $25.
Email Robyn at robynnolting@gmail.com for information.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Also, CHRISTINE TONRY at ACT STUDIOS in Arabi can tape your auditions.  The cost is $35 for 30 mins. and $50 for one hour.  Christine also offers classes for kids and adults; private coaching for kids; and parent counseling and advice. Email: Team@ACT STUDIOS.ORG

Actors, please update your photos and resumes on Actors Access and Casting Networks.

If you change your appearance (new hair color or style; lost or gained a lot of weight; have a beard or no longer have a beard, etc.) please let your agent know this.

PLEASE LET YOUR AGENT KNOW IF YOU HAVE A NEW PHONE NUMBER AND/OR EMAIL ADDRESS.
