Introduce Yourself : Just starting out, 2 weeks from 50. by Scott Clarke

Scott Clarke

Just starting out, 2 weeks from 50.

Hello all. My name is Scott Clarke and after a lifetime of working in sales and marketing I am trying something "significantly" different. I have been writing, presenting and producing some politically motivated videos entitled Wound Up that are being promoted by a left-wing internet publication here in Australia. I've now registered with an agency and had my first paid job on the set as an extra in a commercial last week. I'm taking part in a casting workshop on Monday and want to dedicate myself to acting as I feel I would rather work at something I really enjoy as opposed to working in a job I didn't like, regardless of the salary and conditions. Anyway, I'm new to the site and to the industry. I hope to see you around. - Scott.

Mark Souza

Good on you, Scott. I wish you well.

Scott Clarke

Thank you very much, Mark. It's liberating and a little frightening.

Helen Stirling

Good luck and many blessing

Michael Curtis

Best of luck, Scott. I just directed my first personal narrative film at age 48 after years of producing broadcast & corporate spots. So it's certainly possible. Keep us posted on how things are going for you. Best of luck!

King Emanuel

Good luck Scott. I wish you the best bro.

James Coleman

I'm 53 Scott. I'm a writer, not an actor. But I know what it's like to focus on dueling career shifts. It's an exciting time.

Adam Strange

Good luck, Scott. It's never too late. This stuff is a lot of fun.

Carol Giordano

Me too. Let's hope for the best

Reece Elisabeth

All the best to you Scott

Carol Giordano

Wishing you well too, Carol.

Victoria Wiltshire

It takes real courage to make such a dramatic change. Many wish for change but for their own reasons, don't take the step. Well done, Scott and I wish you the very best!
