Acting in the US as an immigrant

Acting in the US as an immigrant

Posted on Dec 9th

Within the past year I started taking online acting classes from American acting schools in New York and also worked with an accent coach to get rid of my German accent (I have also done theatre at school pretty much my whole life). I would love to become an actress but most movies from my country are complete bs romantic comedies with the same three actors without a proper storyline or message or really anything different or daring that would make them slightly interesting. That‘s why I would rather work on American feature films/tv shows/short films because I want to work on projects that I am excited about. What do I have to do to start an international career? (e.g. What are the steps, when is the right time to reach out to agents in america, visa, …) Thank you in advance for answers :)

Headshot-Age Range-Character Type Feedback

Headshot-Age Range-Character Type Feedback

Posted on Dec 9th

Use this thread to post your headshots for feedback, get info on your age range/type, find good headshot photographers, ask any questions you may have about headshots. If you are posting a DIY headshot for feedback, and not just a snapshot in order to get feedback on your age range/type/etc, it is advised that you do at least some basic research on what actor headshots look like--composition, framing, lighting. You will find a Google Image search for "actor headshots" to be very helpful for this. Non-professional shots are fine for age/typecasting; please keep in mind that one picture is a difficult way to go about this. Video of you moving and speaking would be ideal, but understandably more difficult to post. For what it's worth, the branding workshop at SAG-AFTRA recommends a five-year age range. That's inclusive, so for example 19-23, 25-29, 34-38, etc.

Getting an agent if you moved to the US a couple of years ago

Getting an agent if you moved to the US a couple of years ago

Posted on Dec 9th

Hello, so I’ve been lurking on this sub for a while and wanted to ask this question. So I’m trying to be an actor which I already started by doing student films and indie films but there is probably a not so big obstacle in the way. I wasn’t born in the US, my parents moved here when I was like 12 due to killings in my country and we’ve been staying here since then. I’ve gotten a social, work permit, drivers license, etc. i don’t have a green card yet. Now here’s where the real problem lies, will I be able to get an agent or do these still stand against my chance of getting one. I plan on moving to New York soon for more training and experience. But yeah that’s the story, do y’all think I can still get an agent with the circumstances? Cheers!

Of course I’ll shoot both and send them in, but I was just wondering if the purpose of providing two different parts of the script was to see the actor do both or to give them the option. Thank you for your help!

Recommendations on where to get started?

Posted on Dec 9th

Hello! I am a beginner voice actress who just got out of a voice training program, and is ready to hit the ropes. I have a full list of possible places to look for gigs, but I was wondering if there were any experienced actors here who have specific recommendations? I do not have a demo yet due to pricing, so the best recommendations would be those that do not require demos. I do, however, have a home studio. Any advice? I understand it is a very vague question, so if you are unable to provide recommendations, no worries. I figured it’s worth a shot.

Hello, I am looking for a voice actor who has a deep and energetic tone that can do Voiceovers similar to the channels linked below. You will be paid per 1000 words, starting rate will be $12.50 per 1000 words, however, there is room for an increase. Scripts will typically be 2000 words long, with multiple scripts per week (long term work).

I recently watched Joaquin P, my favorite actor\`s award video, so in this video he said one thing that confused me, he said that "We all know there is no fuckin best actor" and its just for the tv shows, so it sparked a question in my mind, Is this true that there is no greatest actor in the world, every great actor is equal or he is just being humble?

The Blood Still Pumps (Thank the gods)...

The Blood Still Pumps (Thank the gods)...

Posted on Dec 8th

It has been suggested that a followup to my unintentional, but infinitely sincere "love letter to actors" that I posted at the start of this year (https://www.stage32.com/lounge/acting/Actors-Life-Blood-Just-saying) might be in order. I happily agree. In a few days, I will host a social gathering of my currently cast actors and our gifted DP, so this seems the proper time.So, here we are all these months later. Our New Media Series continues its preparations as the pandemic and Delta variant and financial costs of on-set CoVid safety protocols had on us on hold for a chunk of 2021. We are an independent production, budgeted similar to a decent-sized independent film. We, as all producers should, fully support safe working environments, and in our refusal to cut corners in that regard, we were left looking at costs that would have increased our budget by 30%+ (none of which would have ended up on screen or proportionately increased the quality of the show). So, I put us on a soft hold.Looking forward, even with the Transformer-sounding Omicron now among us, we anticipate marshaling the necessary additional resources to shoot in the second quarter of 2022.But what of our actors and casting. When I first wrote, over 11,000 actors had requested consideration for one or more of the 11 posted roles in our first season. It was a number that made no more sense, no matter how long one stared at it. As I write today, that number has grown to 23,000+. All from a single notice on a single casting site. Such is the reason why the British have (and love to use) the word "gobsmacked."But I am not here to talk about us. With a half dozen roles cast and several more to consider, both large and small, I am here to talk of talent. The seemingly endless pool of remarkable talent that is out there in the acting ranks. So very many skilled, trained, creative professionals, the vast majority of whom toil and prepare without recognition or aknowlodgement. Actors of of every shape and size, every color and background, all cultures and orientations. Most with worthy credits and work. Capable of inhabiting a character in the furtherance of telling a story that just might shed a bit of new light or perspective on the human journey and experience.I am not talking here about actors who do it for the money. What money? too often. I am talking of actors who pursue a craft that is as much a calling as a vocation because... they simply cannot, not do it. Precious few arenas exist where one encounters that. Civilians do not realize, and thus rarely acknowledge, that acting is difficult, painstaking, precise work. The play and imagination of young children looks easy (and is) because they are still children. They have not yet been fenced by expectations and responsibilities of society, family, and adulthood. Actors must develop the wherewithal to tap back into that past, to transform their imaginations to a childlike state. To... play. Not for themselves — though it is most often a fulfilling endeavor for them — but rather, for their audiences. For their director. For their show.When I work with the actors cast to this point, developing characters and in early rehearsals conducted online via video conferncing from points all over the globe, I find my breath taken one or more times each session. These actors routinely cast me into audience mode, where I am watching them present (back to me) characters and dialogue that I wrote and causing me to take it in as if for the first time. From the edge of my seat. Captivated by insights to the material that eclipse my own. Nuance. Subtext.. If collaboration is a drug, then you may label me an addict.A bit of a sidebar (if you will allow) because it remains a rock in my shoe...In the last month, I have read multiple stories and accounts of actors from a stunningly popular and expensive streaming show (now concluded) wherein they describe how truly shabbily they were treated in regard to senses of sensitive material (principally nudity / sex scenes). I have no naivete here. I have worked in the industry for far more than enough years to know how representative the lack of regard and callous interactions in the articles are. I continue, however, to struggle with why? Yes, I know it is commonplace for the powerful to abuse and debase the less so. But why? Especially here, in the production of humanity-focused subjects by people of purportedly higher prioritizations of their fellow men and women.  Such debasement is not in the best interest of the show, nor a positive work environment.All of our agreements with actors have a detailed, full-page description of how all sensitive material will be handled (I'm not bragging here — just offering an example of how things can be done). The shorthand of it is: When I conceive of a story moment or storyline containing any form of sensitive material, I talk it through with the actor(s) who will ultimately play the material. They have every chance to weigh in about concerns or comfort zone limitations (in fact, they are encouraged to do so). If it doesn't work for them in concept, I move on and find other solutions to the story point(s) and / or theme(s) the material was supporting. If they do say the material seems doable (for them), then I write the screenplay pages of the scene(s).Then, we talk again; this time working from the pages and how I envision shooting the material. Here too, they can raise concerns, talk of boundaries. We listen to each other (what a concept, I know). And in the end, they make the call about what they feel comfortable doing. If things are good, it stays in. If not, I find other ways. (Despite what many directors, producers, and DPs will tell you, I have yet to encounter the cinematic story moment that can only be conceived of, and / or shot in a single way in order to be successful, including ones where characters take their clothes off.)Lastly, the material is revisited in preproduction. Just a check-in to make sure everyone is still on the same page. Another weighstation where the actor can, if need be, say, Well, I originally thought I could, but now... If that's the case, we again find new ways to accomplish the same story / thrme goals.All of that part of our contractual agreements with actors. Because... why wouldn't you? When our actors see the verbiage, they are (to borrow once more), gobsmacked. That should not be the case. Such consideration should be the norm. Actors are not disposable cannon fodder, charged forward on the battlefields knowing multitudes await to replace any who fall or go AWOL. They are artisans. They are professionals. They should be full collaborators.Not a single viewer is apt to choose to watch our Series directly because of my involvement in it. Nor should they. I know that, and in no way find it injurous. It's the actors, Jake. That's why people will watch. Or not. The faces and embodiments of the characters and story; subtext and theme. Even if one were compelled to take the humanity our of the equation (and no such compulsion should ever present itself), how does it seem the proper business model to treat the delivery medium of story to audience with contempt, disregard, and threatening reminders that, "Everyone is replaceable."?As I mentioned in the previous post, I love actors. For what they are and what they are not. My Team has reviewed over 23,000 that want(ed) to be a part of telling what remains in my mind, my little story. I have seen the best and most appropriate to the story / characters of that lot. It is stunning. Such talented professionals wanting to suppport and inhabit my notions and visions. It is more humbling than I have words.One last mention of something brought very clear to this point. There are far, far more talented and able performer-storytellers (aka, actors) than there are stages on which to work or stories to tell. Willing to sacrifice and suffer for worthy projects. Yes, there are arguably more talented writers out there than get produced or published, but the disparity is miniscule compared to actors. And truly visionary, compelling directors withering on the vine even less so.When you acknowledge the importance of actors in the production scheme and treat them well, despite the numbers in their legions, you are not giving the inmates the keys to the asylum. Rather, you are giving your production the Keys to the Kingdom.So again, kisses to all who trod the boards, whether on stage, screen or street corner. Andvirtual hugs for the tribulations brought by those who do not have the wisdom or inner workings to value you. The world and the business I have given a career to remains a better place for your eccentric beauty being in it. Now, I must return to pressing <PLAY> again on our audition submissions. I still need gifted co-conspirators for telling my little story...

I’ve decided to start watching movies and shows analytically to see how some actors analyze their characters. Currently I’m watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace and I feel that almost half of the time Andrew’s (Darren Criss) motivations are unclear. This made me think, when playing a character who’s more unstable and doesn’t have motivations that make sense to most people or the motivations are just unclear in general, how should the actor play them? I hope this question makes sense lol

How do I create a demo reel without on film acting?

Posted on Dec 7th

Hello actors! I wanted to create a demo reel when I get headshots since I wanted to submit to agencies but I don’t have any on film acting. I’ve been doing theatre since my freshman year of high school (I’m 22 now) but none of them have been filmed except for a short snippet which is bad quality that I wouldn’t want in a demo reel. What should I do to be professional to great agencies other than having a good headshot? I am wanting to take an acting career seriously now and would love tips. What should I do for my demo reel ? I love the show Chucky the TV series so I wanted to submit to the casting agency that does that show as well as other ones I could find. Thank you!

I would want something sturdy yet affordable that can read from 10' or so away- my vision isn't the best. I get callbacks often enough to justify it, and self tape with a phone/ring light set up. The amount of dialogue requested is starting to increase and I would love to be able to hop in and tape quickly without memorizing the finer points of humidity thresholds for poorly sealed windows. I use a teleprompter on shoots often enough to feel confident in my fluidity. I am eying a glide gear tmp 100.

Similar to Audrey helps Actors, but in video form, I'm a visual learner so I prefer this style. I'm an actor in los angeles and although I am not a "name". I've been several co-stars, guest starts, commercials, and a lead in an indie feature. I finally feel that I have some sort of 'voice' when it comes to my experience and journey in this town. Topic ideas include: * What you should know before you move to L.A / New York * Common misconceptions for newbies in the industry * how much it costs to be an actor * inconvenient truths * actor red flags and things to watch out for * everyones path is different / there are no rules * what is SAG, should you join? * are influencers going to take actors jobs? Curious if you would find this to be helpful? It would be standing / vlog style with graphs, numbers, and digestable information.

So for me it was pretty amazing and definitely God's work. I hadn't been doing anything with acting for a year and it was right when covid hit. I was pretty depressed and had nothing in me to kreate with, but then I got this email. It Said "hey we think you're a perfect match for this role" and the role was BG for a movie being produced by LeBron James company. So I thought "oh wow, that's pretty cool." After researching further, I found out it was also a Happy Madison production which I was about to be working on the same set as my favorite actor, I couldn't believe it. But the coolest thing outside of Adam speaking briefly to me in between takes, was that bc they paid us SAG rate, for the covid test, and 12 days in a hotel BEFORE we even headed to set... I was SAG-eligible by the second day in the hotel! Nothing but God man. Tell us your story!

I am from Australia and love watching short films and gameplays, when watching these videos and such have always wanted to be in that position. if you can even consider asking me, I will do it completely free of charge. you can contact me either by commenting on this post or at my email, [Dakotaaltman105@gmail.com](mailto:Dakotaaltman105@gmail.com) thank you,

Audio Production experience?

Audio Production experience?

Posted on Dec 6th

I’m unhappy with my current (unrelated to VO) job so I’m considering quitting and getting an associates degree in Audio Production (with some courses in video production as well). My goal with this is to give me skills and accreditation to earn a decent living while simultaneously extending my knowledge about the whole audio process so I can be a more complete voice actor when I choose to pursue it full-time. Does this seem like a sensible route to take? Does anybody have a similar experience?

Has anyone made their own project and found any benefits from it?

Right now, I'm in the process of making a short. I'm putting 4-5K into this. I'm done waiting for auditions or "Hollywood" to come to me, so I'll make them come to me..if that makes sense. You always hear the #1 way to get your foot in the door is to make your own work...IMO, eventually every actor will come to that avenue. And here I am. So I wanted to know, for those that made a project and put some good hard cash, time, and sweat into it..did you find any benefits? Like did it help you land an agent? or manager? Anything positive? I'd love to hear positive stories!!

This might get downvoted. Recently signed to a talent agency. My headshots are with my medium length hair, unfortunately I made a bet a year ago to get a buzz cut if my team in fantasy football loses. Well, I’m the loser and also I’m a signed actor now (19). What should I do? I’m gonna inform my agent if this change but I’m not sure how negatively this will impact casting thoughts?

Kissing scenes and sex scenes are cheating

Kissing scenes and sex scenes are cheating

There's an actor I know who broke up with his girlfriend because he found out, she was doing a kissing scene with her co star and she had feelings for him, people say "it's a job" but you don't realize they're giving you a license to "Cheat" imagine how many actors and actresses who are married or in a relationship caught feelings for there co stars while doing a kissing scene. I'm also an actor and professional magician and kissing scenes is a license for cheating lol I understand why Neal McDonough never kiss on screen
