Starter Tools

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been posting anything lately, I'm back now! Okay so you've set your goals for your career, now what? Well the obvious answer is to start working on achieving those goals. But to achieve your goals you need the proper tools and that's what I'm going to write about today.
At the very least you will need these items to start off your acting career:
1. Good headshots and resumes- Once you get an agent they will tell you who to go to for these and what they want them to look like but for right now just find someone who does good quality headshots for a fairly cheap price and put together a professional looking resume with everything organized into different categories and lined up.
2. A stapler- You will use this to staple your headshots and resumes together.
3. A highlighter- You need to have one with you at all times, especially when you're going to an audition. 99.9% of the time they will not highlight the sides for you and having things highlighted in yellow helps with memorization.
4. Business Cards- These will really come in handy when you're networking. Hopefully you'll be going to networking events almost every night so these will go quickly. They're easier to carry around with you than headshots so they're really a necessity. You never know when you'll meet someone who could really help your career.
5. Postcards- I must admit that some casting directors have told me that they don't like postcards but there are many more that do like them. I've actually been sent out on an audition because of a postcard I sent out. Plus if they don't like them they'll just throw it away and eventually forget about it. They're not gonna put you on some "do not cast this person" list. Casting directors want you to be the person they're looking for and they're not gonna turn you away because you went the extra mile to get yourself out there. So sending one out every 6 months to one year is good. I usually just find something to update them about like "Lindsey got a new agent" or "See Lindsey in her role as Andrea in the film Microphone", nothing too overwhelming.
6. Solid Colored Shirts- These are good for headshots and auditions. Patterns take away from your face so you want the shirt to be one solid color. Black and white drain you, so it's better to have bright colors that make your eyes pop and give your face some color.
7. Hair Clips- For obvious reasons this is for people with bangs or hair that falls in their face. If they can't see your face then they most likely won't call you back.
8. A good acting coach- You really should take some classes from several coaches to see which one is right for you. I ended up picking three coaches that I go to pretty regularly. Trust me, you need a coach.
9. A positive attitude- You will run into people that will try to make you feel bad, maybe not on purpose but there are people like that out there, don't take them too seriously. I'm sure you're awesome. Just work hard and keep reading and we'll get through this!
