Hi Amy,
I love your column! What acting path do you think has the longest career life, i.e. commercials, movies, theater, etc.? I am interested in all of them, but I want to try to narrow down to focus on one.
There are “jobs” and there are “careers” – a career spans a lifetime. With that said, it’s always a great idea to get your Commercial Career going so that you can finance your Theatrical Career. I can’t say which has the longest career life because that is up to you. If I am to answer which one to focus on, focus on the one that gives you the most joy.
I want to make an actor website for myself. Do agents and casting directors look at that stuff? What would I include on it? I don’t have a demo reel yet.
Since we are in a texting snapshot world, the shortest and easiest way for the industry to see your package would be a link from a casting site. People usually have acting websites when they have a large body of work.
Do you recommend taking a group acting class so I am able to interact with more actors and get more feedback, or do you think I get more bang for my buck taking private classes?
Since I’m a Booking Coach/Teacher and have been an Actress since I was 10, the only way I can answer that is by my own experience. Fellow actors should never give you feedback ever. It can oftentimes be damaging. The person to give you the feedback should always be your teacher or coach. If you feel like you enjoy the personal attention and want to advance quickly, then opt for privates. I think you should do both. It’s extremely valuable to put yourself up in a classroom setting to better prepare you to overcome the feeling of judgment in the room and to get out of a safety environment.
