• Getting to the next step.. whatever that might be…

  • I’ve been doing independent and student projects for 3 years now. Love it. Meeting great and passionate people. Getting to play make believe with new and exciting perspectives and stories.

    However, as I’m all just doing a glorified hobby I do find that getting taken seriously is harder than I thought.

    I would love to try more challenging roles, know how to tap into greater experiences. I’ll continue to do do courses, workshops and networking events as much as possible, but it’s the actors catch 22…

    I can’t get an agent or beefier roles, without a spotlight account… and I can’t get a spotlight account without an agent or beefier roles. What do do? Spotlight states that I must have 4 film credits, not including: shorts, student films, commercials or corporate films. I have been dong stage work so that’s good. but how is that provable to them?

    It’s all rather frustrating and I have yet to get the answer.. so for now, I remain optimistic, hard working and willing to grow more as I continue down this awesome path… doesn’t hurt that I’m having a great time along the way 🙂
