Mailings are a great way to get your resume seen by agencies and casting directors. All you need to start mailing is a copy of Ross Reports. Get relevant addresses from there and put your package together. Your package should include a headshot, resume, and (brief!) cover letter. You should have separate resumes for film work and commercial work. Use the cover letter to show your creativity and personality in three short paragraphs: who you are, what want to accomplish, and why you are mailing the agent and/or casting director.
