Taking chances and getting yourself to be in the right place at the right time is exactly what acting and the industry is all about. There are plenty of actors, directors, and producers that I personally know whose careers would never be what they are today if they didn’t put themselves “out there” and take a chance. A big part of the industry, as you may know, is being in the right place at the right time and this is where putting yourself out there and taking a chance really comes into use. You need to make sure you are taking chances and allowing yourself to be the best that you can be!
      Taking changes in your career means that when you show up to auditions, you make an impression. You walk into that room and you show the casting director the absolute best side of yourself. You need to walk into that room and make yourself as memorable as possible. You have to make sure you are playing anything and everything you can to your advantage. Does the casting director look like they need to hear a joke? Tell them something funny! Make sure you always come up with something to tell them about, start a conversation and show your personality. This is a part of booking work.
      Another way to put yourself out there is to make sure you are submitting yourself to different projects on backstage, actors access, and IMDB pro! You should have your accounts set up in such a way that you are set apart from the rest, make sure you have an interesting introductory message that you can send to the producers of the project, and be ready to give them an amazing audition! You need to know what you should be promoting about yourself so that you seem the most intriguing and interesting out of every other actor out there. Why do they need to hire YOU for this job?
      Being professional means being ready for anything and everything that has to do with you and your own career. If someone needs an actor who knows how to ride horses, and this is something that you have done before, then you owe it to yourself to get up there, raise your hand, and volunteer yourself for the job. No matter what, being there and volunteering yourself is better than not because even if it doesn’t workout, even if it turns into a total disaster, it will be a great story for you to tell at your next job! So make yourself the best actor for the job and you will start booking! Put yourself out there, take a chance on yourself, and you will find more success in your career!
