Ok, you have an agent...check

AMAZING EYE CATCHING PHOTO ON LA CASTING?......hmmmmmm
RESUME FILLED OUT ON LA CASTING?..........hmmmmmmm
VIDEO CLIP ON LA CASTING? ...............double hmmmmmmm
Now if you are reading this and have no idea what I am taking about, then you need to get on the bandwagon immediately if not sooner.
FACT - without an OUTSTANDING commercial headshot on LA CASTING you will not get called in.
FACT - a complete resume including sports, abilities, languages, hair length, accurate sizes, and anything else you can come up with to fill in will be noticed by casting directors much more likely than those that are blank.
FACT - video links to your profile get you to the top of the submissions with casting. Yes, it is true, anything with a video link will go straight to the top of the list.
FACT - 90% of actors and models have no idea of these little tricks, and therefore do not take full advantage of their online profiles.
FACT - you can shoot a 25 second clip of yourself as an introduction to yourself and post on your profile today, gaining top priority for castings to see you.
FACT - if you want more credibility, you can video yourself and show the pages of your portfolio to give the casting people an idea of your work while showing your personality at the same time.
FACT - you can confirm your castings and auditions online via the worksheet using your log in information. When you confirm yourself, it shows the casting offices that you know how the biz works and you seem more professional.
FACT - when you miss an audition, it is noted via computer, and if it is something you do a lot without explanation, well you get the picture.
FACT - you can call your agency and get your log in information anytime and start filling out your resume and loading your video clips.
