In the Beginning

Here we go!  

What this is: a place for honest advice to actors.  At times, it may be a place for brutally honest advice to actors.   You may read or learn things that challenge what you have been taught by well-meaning fellow actors and teachers.   But having grown up in this industry, I can promise you it's not until you are on this side of the curtain (the agent side) that you get to really see a big puzzle piece in the picture of What Works.  Or, what drives us up the wall.  Or why some relative newcomers get signed at great agencies while some long-established, hard working actors can't get signed anywhere.  What makes you look like an amateur, or worse, desperate.   And how to make sure you are not wasting your time or money out here.  We'll go over the good, the bad, and the ugly of photographers, classes, workshops, resources, etc. etc.  in a way that most sites (Backstage West, etc.) could not (remember, they and most sites rely on advertising dollars.).

Of course, the "it" factor can't be taught.  But everything else, I'm here for you.  No relevant topic is off limits, and questions are encouraged.

Stay tuned...
