What are the key points to making it as an actor?

1 - Knowing how to Act!  Thats right, learning the craft of acting, and then be able to apply that understanding in front of others.  This does mean going to a class on a regular basis

2 - Getting yourself an Agent that wants to help you, that pushes you to everyone, and helps to make sure you are getting out on auditions on a regular basis

3 - Understanding and knowing how to deal with the Business of Acting, do you need a SAG Card / AFTRA Card, etc...  What you should do with your money, etc...

4 - Being a professional at all times, and really knowing the concept "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".  There are literally 1000's of scammers in this business, and you need to know how to avoid them.

5 - Really understanding how to promote yourself, and helping to augment the work your agent does for you, or really knowing how to promote yourself if you do not have an agent yet.

I will discuss all of these points in great detail in future posts.  I am seeking to help the actors of the world by offering some advice that has worked for me, my family, and friends over many many years in this business.  There is no charge for this advice, but hey if you click on one of the links... a few pennies may come my way!

Take Care, and make your dream a reality!
