Many of you pro actors out there may already know about this great resource but the SAG-AFTRA Foundation offers a great library of videos designed to give you a leg-up on the business side of acting. The videos include topics like how to perform in a horror film and the ins and outs of SAG-AFTRA residuals. A standout video is a panel discussion about best practices to keep in mind when creating an actor reel. The panel consists of theatrical agents and associate casting directors so heeding its advice will ensure that you present the best of your talent and experience so that you’ll get noticed by the people who matter most.
The video is just under an hour but it’s really worth a look. Set aside some time, pour yourself some coffee, and take notes. You’ll thank us later.
