Free Support and Outreach for Colorado's Filmmaking Community
Hello my name is Conner Ashley, and I'm 15 years old. I have been acting and modeling for almost 2 years now. Although for those two years all of my acting experiences have been on the stage. Either in musicals or plays. Now I want to start film acting, but not sure how to audition for film or even how to act infront of a camera, its a challenging task but one I am willing to take on. Please give me any tips you can. I have been trying and trying but all of the Student and Low budget films that are interested seem to fall through due to lack of professionalism on their part. Ive been looking on craigslist for jobs, but is there a better place to look? I have tried getting an agent but they all say my hair is too long and the braces need to come off. But I cant wait for them to come off I want to ACT NOW!!! ANY TIPS WILL HELP!!!
First thing is put a resume together of all the work you have done then get yourself some head-shots together once you have done that google talent agencies in denver and start sending out your resume and head-shots. Dont be discouraged if they dont get back to you at first just keep trying and you will get one. Any questions about resumes and proper head shots you can find good tips through the talent agencies you contact. Your agent will more then likely want you to shoot new stuff after pending how your first set look. Also try to get copies of your past work and make a reel.
Craigslist has really dropped off due to them charging a fee for TV/Film listings.
This forum is probably the best place to stay in the loop, although CFVA might be useful. Try hooking up with college film departments, their students are always looking for actors. And don't discount theater - there is more theater going on than film, and the experience is equally valuable.
