HAPPY NEW YEAR! I love how the new year always feels like a fresh start, a chance to turn the proverbial page, set new goals and commit to new habits. After taking some time to rest and reflect and connect with family, I am ready to hit the ground running in 2017. Let’s make this the best year ever (until next year, of course)!

January is also an exciting time as we’re entering network pilot season. Pilot season can sometimes feel like a mysterious time of year… some actors feel like they are a part of it, and some don’t. Last year, I created the pilot season series to help you better understand and prepare for the process… I hope you’ll take a look and make sure you are ready to book your biggest job thus far this year.First check out Volume 1 on How to Prepare for Pilot Season, and make sure you have all your ducks in a row:

Then watch Volume 2 to learn How to Research Your Pilot Auditions… when you’re going in for shows that don’t even exist yet!

Volume 3 is for that magical moment when you get that audition for a pilot. Watch and learn How to Prepare for Your Pilot Season Audition:

And, finally, watch Volume 4 to make sure you fully understand the Pilot Casting Process:

Are you feeling more ready to head into this important time of year? I want to hear from YOU! Comment below and let me know what you are most excited about as we head into 2017. And what are your goals this pilot season?

If you have a question you’d like me to answer on the last Tuesday of the month, email it to me at [email protected] I’m looking forward to helping!
