Actor Services

Our actor services are designed to get you ready to compete in the field. Without professional headshots and reels, you simply do not stand a chance out there. Casting websites like Actor’s Access and L.A. Casting send hundreds, sometimes thousands of actors to a casting director in a web page for a single audition. If your materials aren’t great, how could you possibly stand out and get noticed? Email us to book an appointment.

HEADSHOTS

Our actors’ headshots are not just pictures. They are your first audition and we shoot them with that in mind. Without a great, professional headshot, you cannot compete in this business. When you walk into a casting director’s office, that’s your first callback. Your headshot is your first auditionyour calling card.

(Note: Professionals, especially kids, should get new headshots twice a year. The casting directors want you to look exactly as you do in your pictures.)

Deluxe Package – $499.00 or $465.00 if you pay cash. (One comedy, one drama and one commercial or hosting scene.) If you have no reel, this package gives you what you need to truly compete in the market.

ABOUT REELS: We can tell you first hand from producing our own films, if you are an actor without quality reels that show your strengths, you stand little chance of being cast. Director Darren Dowler says, “I really won’t consider someone for a role who has no reel. It needs to be professional, 2 minutes or less (comedy, drama and commercial) and up to date. They really should have one for each category they are pursuing. Comedy, drama, commercial and even hosting. Reels are more important than headshots these days. My casting directors rarely select actors for an audition if they don’t have a reel. There are simply too many great actors who have them and that saves us time and money. If you haven’t worked on a show yet, then have a reel produced. Whether from a major network show or produced independently, if I can see you act, you stand 100 times the chance of getting called into audition for the part. Invest in your craft and represent yourself professioanlly or you are wasting your time and money.”
