August 10, 2007, Newsletter Issue #76: Advancing Through Acting Jobs

Tip of the Week

When starting out in an acting career, take as much work as you can. Yes, you should shoot for excellent roles from the start, but expect to be rejected in the beginning. Do extra work, do favors, and do non-union work until you are able to join SAG, AFTRA, and/or Equity. If you can only get in to student films than do as many as possible. As long as you are working, learning, making connections, and gaining exposure, it is not a wasted experience. The good acting jobs will come with time, and when you encounter them, you will be a more experienced actor.
