Opportunities for new actors

I'm looking for opportunities in michigan. I don't have a lot of experience but I'm a fast learner. I have a small military background and have 10 years in the department of corrections. I really want to get involved in more projects to gain more knowledge and experience

UK Actors - Spotlight or Imdb?

Just wondering which one you use, I'm thinking Spotlight is best for UK only, Imdb more suitable for international applications... Any thoughts? I have used both in the past but would like a 'modern' view on this... Well, it boils down to this: Which one do YOU use, and why?

Benji Ming

Spotlight is de rigeur Nicole. The others are OK, but almost everything is on Spotlight, unlike the others.

Nicole Seelig

Benji, I agree, this has been the standard for a long time, I was just wondering if things had changed much since I was last in Spotlight - a while ago, when they only had the actual books ;-) Thanks for your input.

Anne Stafford

Hi Nicole, my understanding is that if you're not on Spotlight then you're not considered to be a professional - annoying, but there it is! If you can afford both, Spotlight and IMDB, then I'd do both. xx

Nicole Seelig

Thanks, Anne. I'll probably go with Spotlight as soon as I know I can make time for auditions.

More on my "Never Give Up!" approach to acting.

The reason I make "Never Give Up" #1 in my rule book for actors is because it is SIMPLE and full of MOXIE! The full story behind "Never Give Up" is from late actress Ruth Gordon (star of "Rosemary's Baby" and "Harold and Maude"). She got kicked out of "acting school" and this is what happened: Mr. F...

HOORA!!! OUTSTANDING!!! Excellent example of intentionally diligent persistence. It's very important to find a very healthy and loyal support system to help keep our inner harmony nourished. It's only called "The mean time" if we give it that authority.

Kimberly Remsen

Yeah Gary guess that's all I can do.

Why do we allow ourselves to be shamed as actors?

I'm just tossing this out there coz it really bothers me! The sheer shaming we get in the biz as actors! WTF? Why do people in the biz shame us actors and WHY do we tolerate it?

wow! I really appreciate all this feedback. I think actors are tough, strong, flexible, but easily manipulated into always feeling "not good enough" by Casting Directors, Agents coz we are always "job hunting"

Agree @Stephen. Well said @Joseph.....just love the new term "Intro/Extrovert Hybrid."

How to get good numbers of viewers in Bengali films?

Recently I have seen, most of the single screen is very pathetic in Bengal. A few multiplex have good viewers, but those are of a specific category. So, we are loosing lower class viewers who were the base of film business. Who actually decides a film hit or flop. So, how to reach to them. Any idea? suggestions?

Yellowman

It is an honor to return to the Paul Robeson Performing Arts Co. for the production of Yellowman as Robert Gaines, Eugene's father. I love to hear from those who had played him or Eugene mimicking Robert's lines and demeanor.
