Where to Find Local Acting Jobs

Sure breaking into the big screen may be tough yet there are many local opportunities for actors and models. No, it may not be the supporting role next to a big name actor or actress but it's a foot in the door to begin your hobby or future career. While most newcomers in the industry won't seek out an agent; initially a casting company can provide valuable leads to local acting and modeling jobs.

The benefits of using a casting agency are numerous. Any acting job is experience and an opportunity to learn. Working with a casting company can open opportunities to jobs you may not have been aware of. It could be as simple as a local business developing an internal video for their employees. Or even voice acting as a promotional product. Often these acting jobs can be difficult to find. A casting company can help to open these doors.

Another benefit of working with a casting company is the ability to network with others in the industry. This may be another fellow actor or actress that may provide additional acting leads. This may be the producers or even the client requesting the production. Networking is a critical element within the acting industry. Be sure to follow up with those contacts you've made and stay in touch.

A casting company can also be the foot in the door. Many aspiring actors and actresses start locally in school or community plays. A casting company can help to begin the next step in your hobby or career. As with any job once you perform and show your willingness to learn this can lead to more acting positions and even larger roles.

Casting companies are a perfect starting point for any age and many will work with adults and children as young as one week old. So even if you're a parent hoping to encourage your child's acting career a casting company can be a perfect place to start.

It's important to remember that if you audition and don't get the part to pay attention to the process. Don't become discouraged and upset. It may take a few auditions to land that first gig. It might be the casting agent thought you were good but just didn't fit that role. Staying enthusiastic and positive may open opportunities for other rolls the agent has available.

If you are able, take time to thank those involved in the audition review and let them know you appreciate the opportunity to have tried out. A good positive attitude can go a long way in any job or relationship.

We wish all of the future stars the very best.
