Grasshopper we’re going back to basics…
Except we’re doing it Boost My Star Style and going deep on stuff that no one else talks about.
I tend to stay away from “basic” topics like getting ready for pilot season because there is so much content about it that it tends to fall on deaf ears.
However, I had a few questions about this recently from actors that “couldn’t find anything about it anywhere.”
So, I spent some time browsing and Googling trying to find some real advice on this (just as you might have been doing) and I found nothing!
Let me rephrase that. I found nothing of value!
It was all regurgitated platitudes as if everyone read a stale article in Variety and decided to reword it. Everywhere I looked it was more “get in touch with your agent and figure out a plan, be sure your skills are at their best…”
If you’re not already doing that on a daily basis, you probably fall into the “actor” category we often joke about around here.
Take a deep breath and get ready for what no one will tell you about pilot season…
