Hi Actors. Always remember, no one looks like you. You are unique. You are original and please, please, please stop getting those bloody expensive photos & headshots that don’t look like you.
Now that 40 of the 50 states have established their individual funding programs (Canada, which looks like America, 12 years ago gave 25% refunds to Foreign Producers to shoot in their nation) to compete with the equivalent area of Canada that looks like them.
ONTARIO (Toronto) looks like NY, Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta.
BRITISH COLUMBIA (Vancouver) looks like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego.
ALBERTA (Calgary, Edmonton) looks like Texas, Oklahoma, Montana
QUEBEC (Montreal) looks like numerous foreign cities such as Warsaw, Prague, etc
NOVA SCOTIA (Halifax) looks like New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, etc.
Now, here’s the point.
40 of the 50 USA states, who have lost shoots to the equivalent area of Canada that looks like them, have now come up with funding programs approximating 20%-40$ of the budget to draw the shoots back to Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Michigan, Oklahoma, etc.
Thus, if you are an actor in one of the 40 states that has a funding program to attract big-budget shoots then when those big-budget shoots come to your area they will hire you.
Now, who knows about this.
1) Your FILM COMMISSIONER
2) CASTING DIRECTORS in Your State.
So, here’s a list of some Casting Directors in the secondary (non-California, non-New York) states.
Attn Actors: Want jobs? Do your homework. Contact your Film Commissioner. Discover what programs they have and who is coming from NY & Hollywood to shoot and the project had 40 speaking parts, with the LA/NY Production company bringing parts 1-4, but parts 5-40 are available.
Then find out who the local Casting Director is and get him/her your headshot (that looks like you) and now become….”a pleasant pain in the ass”.
Actors; write that down. “Pleasant Pain in the Ass” This is another phrase for be persistent…and bug your local casting director.
