    • How do I get myself started?

      One of the biggest and most commonly asked questions in the industry! There is no wrong or right way of getting started. There are a plethora of casting websites nowadays, many of which, you don't need representation to get the chance to apply for roles. Any decent agent will tell you that headshots and a Showreel are a must to be taken seriously in the industry. This doesn't necessarily have to be costly in the early stages. Most sites will accept self taken photos, or a friend with a decent camera is a great option. In respect of the Showreel, there are many opportunities out there for student films which can be a great, unpaid way to gain experience and get some footage to edit together your own Showreel. A great analogy is that an acting career is like steps up a ladder, the more credits you get the more experience you can show and therefore the more opportunities you can create. Serious actors will inevitably reach a point when an investment needs to be made in professional headshots and a professional Showreel. One of the leading casting sites would be Spotlight, to become a member here you need to be able to provide evidence of at least 3 professional credits and must have agency representation.
