What Professional Services Actors Really Need

Actors at some point, every #artist needs to take their art to the next level. Painters invest in a high-quality paint. #Videographers purchase #cameras. And for #actors, this means taking up #acting classes and professional services.

Any working #performance artist will tell you that when seriously considering your field, you will need to take the time to study your craft. For actors, this can mean a variety of things. In essence, you will need to make the investment into at least a few of the following:

1. Self-tape auditions

In the recent past, #casting #companies have started asking actors to submit self-tape auditions. Self-tapes are the process of sending a tape of a scene or multiple scenes to the casting director for their consideration in a movie of tv series when the talent is unable to attend an in-person casting session. What casting directors don’t realize is that not every actor is tech-savvy and that despite having a high-quality level of acting talent, a low-quality self-tape will affect the way the actor is perceived.

Self-tapes can also better prepare an #actor for face-to-face auditions.

2. Demo reel editing

A crisp #demo #reel is another professional services (and a must) for most actors. Having sharp, precise cuts from multiple #shoots not only adds #dimension to the actor’s #characters, but shows off his or her versatility. A well-edited demo reel is crucial when being considered for a role.

3. Private coaching

Another great way for actors to invest into their career is to consider taking #private #coaching. #Toronto is a hotspot for #Canadian talent, and there are a multitude of #private acting #studios available across the city. Actors receive a greater attention to their craft when taking up private #lessons.

4. Acting classes

Open acting classes are also widely available (and might be a little cheaper, too). Often, these classes are full. Though you may not get the individual attention you need, these open classes tend to be much more economical for the up-and-coming working actor.

5. Workshops

Lastly, many might view acting #workshops as a proven way to hone your #skills. By receiving direction from acting #coaches, #industry #professionals, talent #scouts and casting #agents, workshops are an incredible to ease yourself into a fast-paced industry and receive invaluable #support.
