Actors, remember that good actors continue to study their craft. Avail yourselves of the excellent acting teachers in our area.
Actors, please keep headshots and resumes updated on both Actors Access and Casting Networks. This is the way that I submit you for work!
Actors, please let your agent know if you have a new phone number and/or a new email address. I have to be able to reach you! Also, PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAILS EVERY DAY.
Actors, if you change your appearance (shorter hair; got rid of beard; different color of hair), please let me know. When I submit your headshots, you need to look like the headshots.
Actors, DO NOT POST YOUR VIDEO AUDITIONS ON ANY PUBLIC SOCIAL MEDIA SITE. If you do this, this could be the reason you are not booked for the job.
Also, DO NOT TAKE PHOTOS OF THE SET OR OTHER ACTORS WHEN YOU ARE WORKING ON A JOB.
An acting book that I highly recommend (one of the best acting books that I have read) is AUDITION! by Michael Shurtleff. It is available in paperback at Barnes and Noble and you can also find it on Amazon I hope you also will buy my book: TIPS FROM A TALENT AGENT.
Actors, most acting books will tell you that you should keep in contact with your agent often. Every two or three weeks, you should email me to check in. You are not bothering me. If I haven't heard from you in months, I will assume you don't want any more acting work.
A GREAT GIFT FOR MUSIC LOVERS:
THE JAZZ CD "THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU" BY THE VERY TALENTED SINGER NANCY FISHER. You can listen to a sample of the CD on cdbaby.com. This CD is a tribute to my late husband, musician RICHARD HALE.
To order the CD, send a check or money order for $22 ($20 for the CD and $2 for postage) to: Hale Talent, LLC
3220 N. Arnoult Road
Metairie, LA 70002
Nancy's photo on the front cover of the CD was taken by CARLTON MICKLE, a very talented photographer I highly recommend. Carlton Mickle also was the photographer who took my photo for my new book.
HELPFUL TAPING INFORMATION:
Actors, since almost all of the first auditions and some of the callbacks require actors to submit a video audition, here is helpful information from my good friend/SAG-AFTRA actress Peggy Laurel:
