Should we follow up on online taped auditions for casting calls? And if so, how much time should pass before we do so?
I don’t think it’s a good idea to follow up. If you used wetransfer.com you can see if they downloaded it. But, it’s truly not your place to do that. If they are interested, they will contact you. Concentrate on your next audition. Looking back on the ones that you’ve self-taped can oftentimes affect your state of mind and bleed into your next role. And that next role could be yours for the taking.
 
Thank you for being available for questions – saw it on Twitter. My question – I need an agent. I’m currently in LA, but open to either LA or NY based agent. Please advise about getting an agent. Thank you, Vik
You are most welcome Vik! Make sure you have a comprehensive package. A demo, resume and photos that represent what you play. Also make sure that your package matches your talent. If you’re an A+ talent with a C- package then you are sure to get a C- representation. Go to my site: http://TLTaccess.com and do all the business assignments and watch all the video lectures on how to put that together to reach your full potential. I am giving away a free week to try it!!
 
I have heard that the casting director knows the right actor right when they walk in the room. Is this true? If so, is this all based on their physical looks or is it something else?
Sometimes a Casting Director can tell if you are “right” based on the energy of the actor as they enter the room. The actor has been brought in originally because they look like the right type physically. It is up to the actor at that point to close the deal. Casting Directors can usually tell if you’re the character after your first line of dialogue. Then the rest of the scene is pure entertainment and confirmation of what they already speculated. I know it doesn’t always feel like it, but Casting wants you to be the “one.” It truly makes their job easier.

We would love to connect with you on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and we would definitely appreciate a visit to the Cast It Talent website. Stop in and tell us what you think!  Start building your online brand with Cast It Talent as the centerpiece.  #RightActorRightJob
