How to Write an Actor's Resume
As an aspiring actor you need to have total knowledge about how to create a prospective actors resume which will include every experience that you have gained since childhood. You can also include the experiences that have influenced you to most and why.
Building an Acting Resume
The most important way to get your foot in the door of the next big acting role is to put together an outstanding acting resume that will stand out from the rest. Casting directors and talent agents will all want to see a high quality, top of the range resume, just as any employer would, and will expect just one page of good, tidy information about you and your experience.
Creating the Perfect Acting Resume
Creating your acting resume is the first chance a potential casting director, talent agent, or indeed director, gets of seeing you and finding out more about your capabilities and attributes. It will also help them decide whether or not you are the just the person they should be casting.
Your Acting Resume - Avoiding Expense and All That Jazz
There most certainly aren't 101 rules and reasons to make an acting resume look like everyone else's, wouldn't this be monotonous and a little more than dull? By following just a couple of handy hints when building your resume, your acting career could be sprinting off the starting line, rather than lagging behind it.
Acting Resumes - Honesty Leads to Reward
As far as acting resumes go, you may be a highly experienced celebrity film star or you could be someone from the office with no experience in the world of 'luvvies'! Either way, your acting resume needs to be easy to read, it needs to be informative and most of all it needs to be honest.
Resume Examples
A strong resume attached to a quality self photograph is an actor's most important marketing tool. Together, they are essential to starting, building, and maintaining an acting career. They are used to present your unique style and experience so that casting directors will want to hire you for their productions.
Cover Letters
In the performing arts world, just as in the traditional business world, performers need to prepare cover letters and resumes as part of the hiring process. Casting directors spend their days reading thousands of resumes, actor packages and hosting auditions in an effort to fill the positions required by the production companies.
Constructing an Acting Cover Letter
Many people today have forgotten or simply don't understand the importance of creating a proper cover letter. Whether you submit your performing arts package to a casting director, talent agent or talent agency, you should always include a resume, relative photos or videos and an incredibly well crafted cover letter.
The Perfect Acting Cover Letter
One of the most underestimated and most powerful tools in a performer's arsenal is their cover or submission letter. Writing the perfect submission letter can be a very daunting and difficult task.
Cover Letter Examples
Personal communication with the casting director or talent agent will differentiate your resume from the rest and make it easier for the casting director and/or talent agent to remember you when a role needs to be filled.
