Stand Out From The Crowd
Updated: Jul 22, 2019
Many actors want to know how to best stand out from the crowd. This is a great question as these actors understand that the entertainment industry is highly competitive and want insight on what is needed to maximize their opportunities in the entertainment industry.
The secret lies in your profile page. Casting directors sift through hundreds of profiles looking for ideal candidates, so your profile must make a positive and ongoing impression. This can be accomplished by ensuring that you have a professional head shot on your profile. Not having a photo on your profile indicates a lack of professionalism and can cause you to miss out on opportunities. It is equally important to keep your photos current. Also, the special skills section on your profile opens up more opportunities for you as this allows casting directors to search you by skill. For instance, a casting director may be looking for an actor that knows martial arts or how to salsa dance or speak another language. Therefore it is of benefit to spend a few minutes adding skills to your profile.
Although the entertainment industry can be competitive, with the right tools and desire to succeed, you'll stand out from the crowd.
