Build Your Talent Resume

What can you do to build your talent resume? 

1.  Perform pro bono for non-profit organizations.

2.  Don't stop at personal presentations. Write an article for your local paper, or have them interview you.

3.  Review your marketing materials periodically. Do they say the same thing as hundreds of other performers? Or do they characterize you in a distinctive, personal, professional way?

4.  Take Improvisation and Acting Classes.


What should be on your talent resume?

1.  Your name in large, bold letters. Followed by your contact info, height, weight, hair color, eye color, and union associations.  Make it 8x10 and stick to one page.

2.  Training - Where you studied and what kind of program. If you've had quality acting training, directors are liable to take you more seriously.

3.  Special skills - Do you speak another language? Do you play an instrument? Can you drive a car? Those are all special skills.

4.  Credits - The roles you had in plays, musicals, films, TV shows, commercials, voiceovers, etc. Don't have a lot of experience? 


 No Experience?

We offer acting classes in method acting and improvisation, join us today.

Everyone has to start somewhere.  If you have no experience, then go down to your local community theater and ask to volunteer on set or volunteer to be in a student film. Consider becoming a movie extra.

How you present your experience is also very valuable. Chances are, you've done some acting somewhere. In high school, or an acting class, or a high school acting class, whatever the case...
