Happy Tuesday! Last week I showed you everything you should be doing with your IMDb profile. This week we’re continuing our series on actors’ online presence by going over one of the most important tools an actors needs: An Actors Access profile!
When a Casting Director posts a role, they used Breakdown Services, and release it to Agents and Managers, and sometimes Actors. From there, your agent or manager submits you, but they use your Actors Access profile to do it! It is vital that you maintain and update your profile because this is the first thing Casting sees when they see your submission.
You want to make sure you have performance footage (clips or a reel), a SlateShot, an updated resume, and the right photos. I explain each and why you need them in the video, so be sure to watch below!
When Casting sees your (or your agent/manager’s) submission, there’s a system to when your submission shows up in the list. Remember there can be 1500 submissions for a one line co-star, so showing up towards the top of the list is huge! (Most casting directors I know are thorough and do check through every submission, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to be at the top!)
Now it’s your turn! Go grab your vanity URL and post your Actors Access profile in the comments below! Is your Actors Access profile fully optimized? Or did you have to add something? (Each comment enters you to win an exclusive Workshop Guru prize!)
I know that you have lots of questions, and I want to make it easy for you to get them answered. Do you have a burning question that you want me to answer in Guru Tips For Actors? Email us your questions and we’ll address it in a future #GuruTips episode!
Go update your resume!
