How to Balance Wearing Multiple Hats in the Entertainment Industry

Posted by Taylor C. Baker

Happy Three Day Weekend Stage 32!

As many of you may know, I host an Instagram LIVE every week on @stage32online highlighting some amazing Stage 32 members from all over the world. This week, I had the supreme pleasure of chatting with Australia-based actor, producer, and screenwriter Annisa Belonogoff. Annisa recently wrote an article for the Stage 32 community called "Producer/Director/Writer/Actor - You Can Do it All... But Should You?

At one point or another, you are going to be the bearer of multiple hats on a project. Some people call it being a "slasher" (Actor/slash/writer/slash/director...), and Annisa has coined the term creativity fluid. There are multiple iterations of being a slasher, and there are some major pros (and cons) to wearing multiple hats.

In this week's Instagram Live, Annisa and I talk about

  • What you can learn from wearing multiple hats on a project
  • How and when to know when it is time to delegate
  • How to Network effectively to #FindYourCrew
  • Putting the integrity of the project before ego
  • ... and more

About Taylor C. Baker

How to Balance Wearing Multiple Hats in the Entertainment Industry

Taylor C. Baker is an actor, writer, professional goofball, and the Director of Content & Branding at Stage 32, the world’s largest online platform connecting, educating, and inspiring film, tv, and digital creatives and professionals worldwide.

On-screen, you can find Taylor on the award-winning digital series Female Friendly, which she had the pleasure of co-creating and starring in. Her dimples also graced the tv-sphere on "Lucifer", where she played a southern roller derby queen opposite of the devil himself on FOX/Netflix. Her natural southern roots strike again when she played Helene on "Polygonerz", now streaming on Amazon.

On stage, she is known as the comedienne "Trixie Treble", where she has been humbly dubbed "Lucille Ball in a Garter Belt". Simply put: adorned in bedazzled ensembles, she sings parodies while expertly executing awkward dance moves - usually while eating a baguette (or a cupcake, depending on her mood).

You will often find her singing improvised songs about her day (usually involving pie, because pie), she is deeply obsessed with her dog Radio, she loves potatoes in any form or fashion (can we get an amen for sweet potato fries?!) and she is currently learning to roller-skate whilst looking carefree.

Keep up with Taylor's shenanigans on Instagram, YouTube, and IMDb.
