Headshots – such an emotionally charged word, especially for actors.
Does anyone else see an epic fail here looking for a place to happen? The main problem is that while we emotionally want a headshot, that does all. That is not only impossible, but it is also unreasonable.
But that’s okay because that is not what the thing is supposed to be in the first place.
Except for print jobs (totally not about your acting abilities), the purpose of the headshot is to get you in the room. How do you do that?
Well, luckily, I have that information. And the knowledge of this comes not just from my 20+ years in front of the camera but my 15+ years behind it. As the former owner of Nevada Casting Group and principal Manager of M.O.B.Y. Productions, working on projects here in Reno, Louisiana, and the Greater Los Angeles area.
Let’s talk about the Headshot Seminar.
As the first in the series “The Business of Show Business,” Join me at Restless Artist’s Theatre in Sparks for where it all begins – The Headshot.
Targeted for those 16 years and older, you will leave the seminar with a clear understanding of what that glorious 8 X 10 piece of “paper” is supposed to do and what you are supposed to do to make it work for you.
Let me fast-track you to avoid the mistakes that I have made. This will save you time and money and give you the secret sauce that lets you own the room. While no one can guarantee you land every job you get called in for, I know how to increase your odds and magnify your joy in doing it.
So let’s reframe where we started:
The Challenge: Capture the image that gets you in the room (doable)
The Solution: Have an 8 X 10 that works for you, not against you.
The Step(s) to Achievement: join me. I’ll show you every one of them.
