Staying On The Ball

The past two weeks have been somewhat eventful. August is usually a slow month for castings in the modeling/acting world. Summer is coming to a close and many agents/casting directors/clients are taking vacations or spending more time with friends and family before the fall season arrives. September should pick up significantly.

I'm taking advantage of this slower time to set up some more goals and take care of things that I've been putting off. I told you guys in my last post that I'd taken an auditioning for TV class with Geoffrey Soffer. That class was really eye opening for me and I immediately signed up for his next class so that I could take what I learned and put it to the test. I was supposed to take that class this past Wednesday, the 25th, but I ended up booking a tv promo for MTV and had to cancel. I signed up for his next class on the 15th of September.

The promo for MTV was a lot of fun and I'll post a link as soon as it's finished.

My biggest goal right now is finding a legit (tv/film) agent. I mean, seriously, who isn't looking for one? I was able to freelance with a good agency for this year's pilot season. I'm hoping to find someone to sign with in the next couple of months. Casting for co-stars, guest stars, one liners etc. for the upcoming episodic tv shows will be starting any day now so I'm hoping to get a chance to audition for some of those, but I definitely want to have an agent before pilot season starts. If I don't find one, I can probably kiss pilot season 2011 goodbye.

When I start meeting agents, I want to make sure all of my ducks are in a row. I just shot new headshots (will post my choices when I get the proofs back) and I've signed up for a new acting class. I've also signed up to audition for One on One, a networking program where members have access to classes and seminars with casting directors and agents. I'm not a fan of paid seminars and I've never done one, but I'm happy to pay to take a class with someone I can learn from.....and get opportunities from. I've heard great things about One On One so I hope they accept me.

While I'm sad that summer is ending, I'm very excited to go shopping for the fall. I'm taking this as an opportunity to change up my style a bit!
