Think that’s the case? Well, sometimes it can be just the conduit to making a nice connection.
Let’s say you find yourself in a meeting with a person who knows or has worked with a friend/colleague and they have a great working relationship! Should you mention your friend’s name while you’re in the meeting? I mean, they’re likely the competition, right? Continue reading
Meetings are GREAT, but it’s all about the follow-up! In the last blog I posted, I talked about how to score meetings with people that perhaps you feel are “out of your league.” Continue reading
You have a fancy schmancy cell phone and an even cooler laptop and yet I’m going to guess that you don’t pick up that phone or shoot off an email from that laptop to a big producer whom you deem to be “out of your reach.” Am I right? Or, am I right? Continue reading
I love auditions where my agent calls me last-minute to go into casting. Usually, a last-minute call means they haven’t found the right talent yet, or they’ve had so many cancellations, they’re trying to fill slots with actors who are available to show up. In the voice over world, it’s a great thing to be called into a casting director or producer’s office to audition because your shot at the job is much greater than auditioning virtually against 2000 other MP3s. Instead, you’re up against 15-50 other actors.

In the interest of truly “checking out” and taking a well-earned vacation, I booked out with my voice over agents. I warned the agents and any client I did a job for within 3 weeks of my departure that I would not be bringing my travel mic with me. Since I was traveling overseas, I didn’t want to bring the travel mic, even though it only adds a couple of extra pounds to the travel weight. I was determined to get away from it all!

I have a friend who just pitched her show to a few incredible production companies. While they all seemed to respond to her show, nobody bit. Continue reading
Sometimes motivating to write a one-person show is challenging. There’s no one waiting, no necessary deadline. It’s just you, on your own, accountable to no one. That may cause your writing motivation to sag, it’s understandable and common! Happens to me all the time! Here’s are some ways I’ve found to juice myself. Continue reading
A few weeks back I told you to always “feel free to make it your own.” Remember? I said that hosting auditions mostly want to see YOU not necessarily their copy.
Well, I am eating crow right now because I was SO wrong, at a recent audition. Continue reading
