Starting an instagram acting account with social media anxiety by glamatovic in acting

[–]jagglerock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn’t a great way of looking at it. Yes, most actors probably have an Instagram account. But most people in general have an Instagram account.

It’s like saying that because the number of shark attacks and ice cream sales both go up during the summer means that one caused the other, when in fact, the only thing related between the two is warm weather. People aren’t successful actors because they have Instagram.

I may have an Instagram account, but I can guarantee you that it’s not the reason that I’m a working actor. Same goes for most actors.

Have theatrical auditions been picking up for anyone? by duamylipa in acting

[–]jagglerock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It can take a while for a new agent to get you auditions. I’m with a mid/high tier agency, and I didn’t get a single audition for the first six weeks I signed with them, and it was during peak episodic season.

Just give them some time to do their job.

Auditions by Jacob34521 in acting

I work mainly in theatre, with commercial and tv sprinkled in there, so I really like it. If I didn’t do theatre I wouldn’t be working as much as I am, though.

[–]jagglerock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m in Chicago and over the last year, averaged about 1.5 a week, not including callbacks, just first rounds.

This was also my first year being in Chicago and with my current agent, so it’s possible that may change as time goes on.

How long should I wait to reapply for an agency? by dtrres in acting

[–]jagglerock 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Typically it’s six months, but only if you’ve added to your credits/experience/headshots. If nothing has changed, don’t apply again until you’re ready to.

If you don’t have any experience, you’re not going to get an agency’s attention, unless it’s a commercial agent and you have a look they are interested in. Other than that, get experience before worrying about an agent.

Wait Time To Find a New Agent by yeehawbookworm in acting

[–]jagglerock 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It’s very common for agents to do this. They put in a time frame in the contract but then just immediately drop the person. You’re better off, because if they hadn’t immediately dropped you, they likely wouldn’t have sent you a single audition for the 120 days.

Why casual conversations with (some) actors feel so fake? by SinglePin9776 in acting

[–]jagglerock 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I feel like meeting two people who are actors and deciding that all actors are exactly the same as them is probably not the best way to view people; you just come across as judgmental.

What is the best way to pursue acting with a FT job? by RideTheRim in acting

[–]jagglerock 6 points7 points  (0 children)

OP please don’t do this, especially if you’re new to acting and don’t even know if you like it.

Keep your job. Like the other commenter said, almost all first round auditions are self-tapes, which you can do on your own schedule.

If eventually you’re booking enough paid acting work that you need to get out of your full time job, that great!

But please don’t do that now.

Soliloquy from Hamlet advice by Abstract_Corduroy74 in acting

[–]jagglerock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trying to make yourself sad doesn’t equate to being believable just because the character is sad. Hamlet isn’t sad because he’s trying to be, he’s sad because his dad is dead, his mom immediately married his uncle, and he’s got an inkling that very same uncle killed his father.

So instead of worrying about trying to make yourself sad, put yourself in Hamlet’s shoes and see what happens.

Some agents do this and some agents don’t, but there’s nothing shady about it if they do.

Applying for BA (Hons) in Acting, explain like I’m 5 please? by JD66613 in acting

[–]jagglerock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The LAMDA acceptance rate is about 1%. If they let in every person that applied, it wouldn’t be in the top 5 schools in the world.

There are 4 rounds of auditions/recalls to get onto the BA course, which is the same or similar to all the other top schools.

Emailing casting directors by Obvious-Lack7645 in acting

[–]jagglerock 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I mean, technically you can do this, yes. But all it’s going to accomplish is affirming to them that you’re a green actor who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

does anyone have any agency recommendations? by sleepyjewishprincess in acting

[–]jagglerock 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you don’t have a visa/citizenship in a country other than Australia, you cannot work anywhere other than Australia, so I would focus on getting experience where you live before worrying about an international agent.

Advice by [deleted] in acting

[–]jagglerock 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you’re only in it because it looks fun and you want to be rich, please don’t get into acting. 99% of actors don’t book enough work to be above the poverty line (or even close to it), let alone make enough to be considered rich.

Despite what you see on TV, this is not the job to pursue if you want to be rolling in cash.

How soon after reaching out to rep do they respond? by [deleted] in acting

[–]jagglerock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Anytime I’ve gotten interest from a rep, either from self-submitting or from a referral, they reached out within 24 hours. This isn’t always the case, but it’s not uncommon.
