Question by kielovee: help with my acting choices? advice please?
okay so ill tell you a little about myself im about to turn 18ish girl and i live in los angeles. ive been working as an extra for tvshows and movies. i took a theatre class at my high school last year and plan on taking adv. theatre this upcoming year for my senior year. i also take professional acting classes. my current plan is to try and build up my resume. i plan on doing school plays and community theatre and continue my acting classes and extra work through out my senior year until im about 19. when im 19 i want to pursue an agent. my question is do you think ill be ready by then? do i put on my resume all the extra work ive done along with the school plays? i also take film production classes and im shooting a student film coming up but not participating as actor but as part of the production team. do i also put that on my resume? please help and give me your feed back. thankyou
okay so then ben i have another question. i was told not to get a manager. they wont help me find an agent and that they arent really necessary. my original plan was to follow what you said but i was told not until i have work then i should gain a manger. as for sag..im trying to work on that and i was thinking about joining aftra. what do you think?
Answer by Saffire
put all that on your resume – you should definitely be a contender when going for jobs and you should be ready by then with all the stuff you’ve done, you’ll also need to write a paragraph on how much acting means to you etc. good luck i hope you do well
