Acting’s Lost Art

Think of the last great performance you witnessed. Who delivered it? There are many fantastic actors that I look up to and a few months ago, I started noticing a trend. 

I noticed that the standout performances that struck me most had something in common. I ran my thoughts past some industry colleagues, CDs, directors, and screenwriters to see if it was a coincidence or if I was on to something. 

They unanimously agreed that the trend was here to stay for the foreseeable future. In fact, they went so far as to say this is becoming so prevalent in the industry that there are not nearly enough actors that are skilled in this particular talent. 

That means, when you master it, you will fill an industry demand and instantly stand out in every audition you go on!

The Biggest Advantage You Can Have in A Casting Situation

What does a hockey puck, an alligator, Valentine’s Day, and a swordfish have to do with your acting career? 

Before we descend down that rabbit hole and go over what it has to do with your acting career, I want to ask you a question… 

What if the world we live in was nothing more than a mere simulation, a matrix of sorts? Yes, I know that’s an even bigger rabbit hole but stick with me for a minute. 

If it were a simulation would you play the game differently than you have been to this point, knowing that failure was not an option? 

Let me be clear: I’m not saying that it is! I am merely posing a mind-stretching question. 

Now, that your mind is in motion here’s another one that’s a bit more practical. 

If you had a way to see into the future, and you saw that whatever action you took next (pertaining to your acting career) could not fail, what would you do next? 

What if I said I could get you that looking glass to see into the future?... 

How To Become A Full Time Actor in 2018

Actors are some of the hardest working people in the world. There are so many demands on our time. From working out to stay fit and energetic to being on set working long hours, and then working a day job on top of everything else it’s no wonder why so many actors have “going fulltime” as their top priority. 

Having to choose between going to work or going to an audition is one of the worst feelings in the world, isn’t it? 

Granted, most of us are not in a position where missing a day of work would mean the lights get cut off. However, for almost every actor, working a job in addition to acting is necessary for mere survival. 

But who really wants to do that?... 

Let me be clear, there is nothing wrong with working a day job so to speak. In fact, it’s honorable to do what’s required to empower yourself to chase your dreams. 

However, consider how much further along you might be in your career if you could devote 100% of your time and effort to it? 

What if you could spend all of your time networking with industry decision makers, auditioning, or on set? 

Personally, every minute that I spent doing something besides chasing my Hollywood dreams felt like an eternity and like my dreams were moving further and further away from my reality. 

So, if your desire to become a fulltime actor, read of this special report carefully. Not only is this achievable, here’s why it’s without a doubt possible for you to do it in 2018…

The Formula for Never Ending Work

Most people spread themselves way too thin, on everything. 

I don’t just mean career-wise. We are all pulled in a thousand different directions and have multiple responsibilities. 

We have work commitments, families to tend to, significant others, and somewhere in there we have to work on our acting careers too. 

There are so many things to take care of… 

There are acting classes to attend, agents to hire and fire, headshots and reels to keep updated, audition-day wardrobes to stock, social media to build, and tons more. 

It’s no wonder that most actors only book a handful of jobs all year. 

With everything that we have to do, that’s all of the opportunity that most actors are able produce. 

However, we all know a few actors that are able to keep their schedules completely full and move from one production to the next. They are the ones that have figured out the formula for never ending opportunity. 

See, if you can tap into this formula a world of opportunity will open up to you too. It can literally make finding your next job as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

Here’s how… 

The Not So Secret Meeting Where Industry Executives Decided Your Future?

I felt like a fish out of water. Luckily, I’m an actor so I was able to put on a brave face and [mostly] hide the fact that I was completely star struck. 

Over the last few years, I have to come know several industry insiders pretty well. They have become a great source of knowledge and they have often given valuable information that I pass on to you. 

This time was different though. I didn’t receive information from these sources. They “cordially invited” me to be a part of the discussion. 

There were several familiar faces in the room and there were also people that I never imagined would be present. 

The meeting was arranged by the studios to discuss, of all things….the talent shortage! 

A perfect storm has been brewing for a long time and it caught the industry completely by surprise. Here’s what that means and how it could be the best thing that has happened to your career yet. 

What Are You Working Towards?

“Some legends are told. Some turn to dust or to gold, but you will remember me for centuries…” 

If I got hit by a car today, this is what would play at my funeral: Centuries by Fallout Boy. 

Before he was Shark Tank’s Daymond John, I had a brief conversation with him and he advised me to pick a theme song for my career and more importantly, for life itself. 

Over the years, I’ve gone through many of them and I have come to think of this as one of the most important things an actor can do to get their head “in the game” so to speak. 

Here’s why… 

How To Land a Leading Role At Least 20% of The Time

Can anyone realistically land a leading role 20% of the time? Absolutely, without a doubt: yes! 

You might think that it’s impossible or that I’m just plain wrong or even crazy, but it’s simple math really. There is absolutely no reason that you shouldn’t be landing a leading role at least 20% of the time you go out for one. 

If you are at the point in your career where you are going out for supporting roles or bit parts, the odds are even better because there are even more of those available. 

Without further ado, here is how you can land a leading role 20% of the time you audition for one…
