In this video we talk about some easy tools you can use that can still help you build those relationships with the decision-makers you want to get in front of. We had a ton of fun shooting this one, so be sure to catch the clip at the end!

  1. Very thorough Ajarae! Great tips. Another thing would be to look them up on IMDb, see if any friends or acquaintances have worked for them and ask them to introduce you, maybe set up a general meeting or you can put together a package/letter for them or email with note, photo, reel and resume for the friend to pass on to the CD.
