Nine9 Modeling and Acting

So I saw this post on Facebook calling actors for a DC casting call. They didn’t specify which film. I clicked on the post where they had an online form that asked for my height, weight, gender, etc. It also requested my email and main phone number and I obliged, linked my headshot to that form and...

Response to Make Connections in the Film Industry When I Don’t Live in LA? (by Richard Botto)

I just got back to Stage32 after a hiatus. I just want to say, I really appreciate this video I views. I totally agree with Botto, when he says, "You go to a party, you get dressed up, you look nice, you socialize...why can't people do that online?" You have to just go do it. If you want to direct,...

I've found it can be challenging to get people involved who share your vision. If you want to do it all by yourself though, fair play.

Representation rates

I've found myself an agent on starnow but he says he takes 20% commission. Is that too high? I don't want to drop him because I'm not yet on spotlight so I think I'd struggle, but I also don't want to be scammed!

Mark Burger

20% is excessive at best and gouging at worst. You can do better Ciara. Good luck !

Carlo Alvarez

10% is the normal cut for an agent. Managers usually 15%

Go to any actor that has an extensive IMDB from the last 30+ years & see how they've been type cast... In today's world pick the future rolls you want to be known for & that play to your strengths... (A good example is look at Eric Roberts & Julia Roberts IMDB)

Agreed JD... but there is a fine line. When one is known to the AD and the show, it's a much better chance than day 1. My cautionary comments are aimed at newbs. Thanks for the broader pic.

Self tapes

Hi everyone, I have a question. How do you make self tapes with action scenes? With moving, jumping, shooting, etc. Do you do all that actions or you concentrate only on lines and trying to minimize actions? For example, I have two-three pages of the scene, but there are only 3-4 lines, other is actions and lines of other charecters. Thanks!

Matthew J. Kaplan

Hi Slava, I recommend concentrating on the lines. If it feels right, leave room for those actions and show them through facial expressions, but in general, a CD is not looking for you to do those acti...

Shoot mid to long shot in 4K, then you can crop, pan, and zoom as much as a 720p little window of original to simulate that you have camera movement.
