Dumb question!

Dumb question!

Posted on Jun 15th

So I'm a Canadian actor and up here we usually just have an agent. I'm starting to look into representation in LA. I'm working on my 0-1 Visa, I have about 45 + credits and some amazing letters of recommendation/press so I'm not worried about that. The dumb question is: what is the difference between a manager and an agent? I'm sure I can google it, but from people on the ground - do I need both? Can I start with one? Help a Canadian friend!

I want to do classes, but which ones and where?

Posted on Jun 15th

Hello fellow voice actors! It's me, your very dumb and annoying colleague, who's not so bad but wants to be better. So here's the thing - I know how to act. At least at a basic, maybe intermidiate level. I got a good mic(not a yeti, but a samson) and a blanket (no booth sadly and not in the near future). I need to learn how to be natural(er), how to hold a voice(it's hard to talk in one for long periods of time), how to learn accents(german is so hard for me, english ones are easy) and I need you to help me. Reddit, tell me, which courses should I take? I don't feel like a total noob, so I don't need basic level courses. I'm not a mega pro, but I do know some things. What courses provide a good middle ground? P.s. preferably starting July 18th xoxo

Referral protocol question

If I've been fortunate enough to have a well established actor offer to refer me to their reps - how do I not fuck it up? They asked for my materials and said they'd send it over to their people. Should I reach out to said people? Or do nothing and wait for them to reach out to me? What sort of timeline should I give/expect for a response? I'd like to play it cool, like I've been here before, but I haven't. 2¢ appreciated

Advice on Big Decision

Advice on Big Decision

Posted on Jun 15th

Hey All! I would appreciate some perspective on a big decision I've been unsure about. I'm an actor based in Los Angeles. Recently I was accepted into LAMDA's MFA in Professional Acting in London, a two-year program. It's a great school with a great reputation--but I'm having trouble deciding if I should go. I've only been in LA one year and recently signed with a small agency here (mostly commercial/VO auditions so far). The idea of being in London isn't super appealing to me at the moment--the weather, activities, etc.. However, I don't want to miss out on a great opportunity and training that could elevate my career prospects. Here's some more context/considerations: \-I'm a male in my early 30s; I've been acting for a while but don't have a lot of professional credits on my resume \-I don't have any previous conservatory training, mostly intensives/weekly classes in NYC and LA; my undergrad was not in drama/acting \-I've been auditioning for drama schools for a couple of years, but LAMDA wasn't my first choice; I was a walk-in audition \-LAMDA tuition is about 35k USD per year, 70k total, not including lodging/costs of living; I'd be taking out loans to pay for it \-the school recently had a big leadership/faculty shakeup and is sort of figuring out its identity \-I've spoken with a few current students/alumni who are doing well; one booked an Apple TV series his first year out of school ​ If there's any other info I can provide that would help offer some insight, let me know. Thanks!

Moving from Los Angeles to South Texas

Moving from Los Angeles to South Texas

Posted on Jun 15th

I’m a new actor in Los Angeles but only have extra and student film experience. I was working on getting a demo reel but am in a tough financial situation and tired of struggling. I also have been in LA for 7 years (starting acting last year) and have no real friends here; I’m very lonely and depressed. Because of all this, I’m considering moving back with my parents in South Texas (at least temporarily) but want to make sure I can still work on my acting career. What can I do there besides taking classes? I want to make sure that I can keep working on my acting career while I get back on my feet. I wouldn’t have to pay for anything while living at my parents but would eventually need a job. My parents live in a small city on the border with Mexico, 4 hours from San Antonio. Is it realistic for me to be able to get roles there or in other cities and travel for them? I have been checking Backstage and see casting calls but they say they’re only taking applicants from people in those cities. I need help since I need to know what the smart decision would be. I recognize LA is “the place to be” for this industry but I think my plan can bring me success in the long run. TL;DR: Thinking if moving to South Texas from Los Angeles but need tips on whether this is smart for a new actor.

Am I wrong for not wanting to do this scene?

Am I wrong for not wanting to do this scene?

Posted on Jun 14th

(F22) I just joined an on-camera acting class that helps build your reel by filming the scenes you do. However, I’m being given scenes to perform that are far from my typecast, aka I would NEVER be cast for those roles. For example, I look *and* sound much younger, like I could play as young as 13, yet the scene I was given is me portraying a married mother who is pregnant with another child. Am I wrong for saying I don’t want to waste time shooting this scene? I feel like a bad actress for saying this. I just fail to understand why I would film a scene for my reel playing a mother if nobody would actually ever cast me as a mother or even let me audition for a role like that. Any advice or opinions welcome

I will say that Anna is spread quite thin at the moment, and we have a number of opportunities we are juggling, but we are happy to review and share with Anna and will do our best to get back to you soonest.” Should I still share my offer and script?

Submitting to Agents

Submitting to Agents

Posted on Jun 13th

Okay... I am nowhere "new" to acting. I've done some films, commercials, TV, and voice-over. Nothing major mostly featured and local aired, alongside award-winning theater performances. Enough to have signed me with two Detroit agencies over the years. However... those agencies both become dross, or basically lame. Auditions only once every few months, instead of weekly, and paying too low to bother with (avg. $250) So at least voice work has supplemented what live projects used to. But since this pandemic, it seems it's been catch-22 confusion on how agents operate anymore ... or how to submit to them for representation now, outside of Actors Access and Backstage. I've submitted to several Chicago-based agents, but have heard nothing. And my headshots are newer. My resume current. So, perhaps I'm out of the loop on what's going on??? Do actors even submit to agents anymore? Or has this become old school? Most agencies have website submission. But it's been pulling teeth on how to do a cover letter/email body. Or skip that altogether. I've seen other actors/talent posting this similar query on social media, including Facebook. Looking for answers, because it seems the "apply to this talent agency" has become old school. Somebody help! What are we actors doing wrong, who want to reengage in films, primetime TV, and/or commercial work (without a current agent)???

Should I Go For Plastic Surgery? Can't Get Rid Of An Insecurity And It's Holding Me Back From Acting And From Feeling Comfortable In My Skin In General

Should I Go For Plastic Surgery? Can't Get Rid Of An Insecurity And It's Holding Me Back From Acting And From Feeling Comfortable In My Skin In General

Posted on Jun 12th

Hey! The title basically says it all. Since I was a kid, I wanted to be an actress. Nobody in the family supported that idea, cause well, I have no connections, can't act (they said that even though they have never seen me act and it's a skill that can be improved), and I'm not pretty enough, especially my nose. I've never been insecure about it until my closest people said that, and they'd repeat it throughout my whole life. Later my nose also became bigger. Nobody has ever pointed out my nose but them. In my country beauty standards are crazy, but when I go abroad, let's say the U.S. I'd always get a lot of compliments and attention, random people coming up on the street to me, asking me if I am a model, etc. Some people stare and straight-up tell me that they love my face and that I'm pretty/beautiful. But I guess that this insecurity had been ingrained in my head so hard that I can't get rid of it now. Believe me when I said that I've tried to get rid of it and love my nose - God knows I've tried. But I can't. I simply can't. And it's not deformed or anything, it has decent symmetry, it's a straight Roman nose. It's bigger than your regular one. And when I film myself on tape, I like everything but my nose. I'd love it to be more refined and smaller, so it won't take up so much space on my face. I just want to look nice from every angle and from my profile too. I don't want a nose job that will make me look like a brand new person, nor do I want someone's nose. I want it to look as natural as possible, so if anyone sees it they would never guess that I had a nose job. Think about Blake Lively's nose job. In my country, I can get it done way cheaper than in the U.S., but the quality of it isn't worse, it's about the same. I know, I know - everyone's beautiful in their own way, actors have to look like people and people come in different shapes/sizes, etc. BUT you can't tell me that looks don't matter when it comes to acting, especially when it comes to women. Men in films can have different looks and noses, they don't get judged that much and if anything, it adds character. Women on the other hand are criticized so hard, think of all the actresses that are beautiful yet were told multiple times to get a nose job by producers, etc. I know that it would be better to do a nose job before getting into acting, considering the story of an actress from the "Dirty Dancing". My plan was to study acting (first on my own - books, youtube, interviews, practicing at home, learn how to memorize, etc), save up for a nose job, get it done, and then get more serious about acting. **Would I still want to get a nose job even if I didn't want to get into acting?** The answer is yes. I think that even if I were to become a teacher/lawyer/fitness trainer, I still would want a nose job. It has been my biggest insecurity forever and I just want to get it over with. It stops me from doing so many things that at this point it's way easier to get it done than to try and love it for what it is. What are your thoughts on this?

Just learn their speech pattern, and change the pitch? But im having a problem with the speech pattern part. I really dont know who i should try to do an impression of. Are there some people who's speech pattern is easier to learn?

Help! Hollywood agent asking questions about my offer to their celebrity talent and I don't know the right answer!

Posted on Jun 12th

Hey all - currently in talks with an agent for a celebrity actress who stars on a major Netflix show. All seems fine with the rate and material but they're asking what **card placement on credits** will be and **if their can be an invite w/ a plus one** to the premiere. ​ My project is a SHORT-FILM (15 minutes) I don't know or plan on having a premiere at all...this is a story wholly created to release online and festivals. We could aim for a small venue in LA to hold a premiere, but this isn't anything with press and not meant to be designed that way. It's designed low budget so it can be MADE and released into the world. ​ The actress' role is a reveal at the end of the film. A good friend of mine from Pixar directed a short-film and they got Jude Law to cameo at the end via a relationship. Since this actress isn't the lead and only plays a character at the end - I'm not sure how billing would work in the credits. Does she get first billing even though she's not the lead? ​ Any help would be appreciated!

Preparation for Actors

Preparation for Actors

Posted on Jun 12th

Ok, guys I kind of have a "bad actor" question that will probably make me sound dumb, but it's been burning at the back of my mind for a while now: It's about the preparation for film work. I have tried a myriad of different techniques like *A Practical Handbook for the Actor* Objective, Action, "As if" approach. I have tried Harold Guskin's "Taking it off the page" approach. At the moment, I am using *The Lyndon Technique* 15-step process to break down a script. But each time, no matter the prep, the words still feel foreign when saying them out loud for the first couple of times, like I just don't trust myself. Usually, this wouldn't be a problem for theatre or rehearsal but since film is such a fast turnaround time I worry about this flaw for future work. I have tried practicing saying the words with emotions but then I feel like that gets me stuck in a certain way of saying things and when I say them in monotone I feel like I am not incorporating the emotional prep work that I worked on before... Anyway long story short is: how do you guys approach this?? Do you find someone to work off of, go on set with a ton of emotional prep work and hope that that carries you, or something else? I guess in short: does anyone have any prep work that has worked well for them? Thanks guys!!

I'm struggling with the resume (trans actor, FTM)

Posted on Jun 12th

How do other trans actors deal with a resume possibly being reflective of roles of your gender pre-transition? Do you just own them and answer honestly if anyone asks or do you abandon them and start completely over? Especially if your roles are older than a couple of years. In my case, I stopped acting before 2018 for a lot of complicated personal reasons, but I'm finding myself missing it so I want to try again. I'm just not sure how to handle answering the question on an audition form about previous experience or, by extension, how to even manage a resume. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm confident in how I'm going to handle just about everything else, but this one is a struggle.

Getting into acting (for fun) without a theater background

Getting into acting (for fun) without a theater background

Posted on Jun 11th

I’m 22, about to graduate college really soon. I really never had hobbies growing up, my only constant has been media. I love movies and tv, also youtube and musicals and have always been interested in acting. I wanted to be an actress/ singer as a child but like most people, those dreams became more practical. I was told I’m not a good singer, I wasn’t pretty enough for tv and I was supposed to go on multiple disney auditions but never did because my parents couldn’t spare the time. My high school didn’t have theater and I didn’t know enough about it to try to start one. After so many disappointments, I just stopped caring. But now, I really want to get into acting for fun. I just have no idea where to start since I don’t have a bg in theater or acting like most people my age who are already heavily involved with it. I also know people out their blood, sweat and tears into their dreams of being artists and don’t want to minimize the seriousness of certain spaces. Does anyone have recommendations for where to start?
