NOW I'VE GOT HEADSHOTS, WHAT DO I DO WITH THEM?

 

 Mailing / Dropping-off Headshots

◆ Try to avoid dropping off your headshots at Casting Directors’ offices.

◆ I suggest targeting specific roles for projects they are casting, and submitting online through one of these sites.

◆ This will take some time and effort, including lots of research, but you will benefit in the long run.

◆ It’s probably best to mail your headshot/resume to agents’ and managers’ offices as they don’t often have drop boxes.

◆ For frequently updated address books, go to Samuel French (there’s one in Hollywood and in the Valley).  

◆ You’ll probably spend all afternoon there once you arrive – this is THE place for acting literature.  

 

Dropping-off in person – pros and cons

◆ Dropping off your headshot(s) at a Casting Director’s office has about a 1/1000 chance of getting you an audition.

◆ If you do, however, avoid talking to anyone or asking questions if you decide to drop off your submissions.

◆ Casting offices are busy places and there is nothing more annoying than actors walking in and asking "What are you casting?"

◆ Find out on your own, if you’re really interested, and put a post-it on your headshot with the name of the role you’re interested in (better than "blind" submitting).
