Good Friday everyone! This casting popped up this morning for a banking client shooting in B’ham and Nashvegas… 4 hours, $250 (remember Entry accounts make 20% less than the Pro accounts).
Booked talent will be unrecognizable background extras…
Another reason to keep your Webcomp current (and be sure you’ve indicated your Job Types). Have a great Friday everyone!
The client has moved the schedule a bit so this project will now shoot February 21st (Friday). The system is emailing / texting out now so look for that email.
Also note, the Go See date is not set yet. So once the client makes their Top Picks in our system we’ll manually contact those men for attendance.
As a model or actor, getting booked begins and ends with a strong portfolio showing off your personal brand (photos, reel, tear sheets, resume). And we believe our Webcomp® portfolio is the best tool available for your self promotion and casting submissions. Over the next few weeks the Chef will unpack all the ways you can maximize your Pro Webcomp.
Your success is, frankly, up to you. Yes, an agent might help, or a coach, or us, but at the end of the day YOU are the one at the casting or audition. We want you to be VERY successful in this business but that means you must put forth the effort. And if you are willing to work at it, we think the least we can do is equip you for success.
So for today, here’s what your Pro Webcomp offers-
and every Webcomp includes-
Over the next few months, we are adding some cool new features to the Pro Webcomp to make it even more valuable and effective for our Pro talent. So stay tuned…oh, you can Upgrade (or downgrade) whenever inside your “My Account” tab after you log in.
P.S. Some of you are thinking “Here we go, another company exploiting talent!”. No, we are not another organization making promises for your $5*. As a business, we make way more money in our system if you are in a free Entry account. But we know that the more successful our talent are overall, the more valuable they are to us from a booking perspective. That’s why your Webcomp is valuable, because it’s useable and shareable. Set it free!
P.S.S. *ABOUT THE SHARKS: Unfortunately our industry is full of people (we call “sharks”) selling you on their class / service / book / connections / elixir that guarantees you’ll be famous and rich!! Just give them your money and TRUST them. ITS A LIE. There are no short cuts and nothing is guaranteed to be sure.
You’ve probably been warned before but it’s worth repeating: Be VERY critical of who you listen to, who you partner with, who you give money to and especially who you trust in this business. There are no overnight successes. There is hard work, preparedness and some luck….but mostly hard work. So don’t give anyone your hard-earned money, us included, unless they prove the value of their service to you first.
