  • Thank you so much for your Actors' Career Fairs! I recently had an audition for Scott Metzger of Paradigm at your Career Fair and last week I had a follow-up meeting with him at his office! all thanks to you! Keep up the good work and thanks for helping me move onward and upward with my career.
  • I participated, for the first time, in ACF 11. I would like to thank you guys for providing the services that you do. It's nice to have some assistance in pursuing this career. While it provides no guarantees, I particularly like the fact that I can drop off pictures to designated agents as opposed to the crap shoot of mailing them.
  • BIGBreakNY is one of the only acting/entertainment resources out there that actually does what it promises. You all are great!
    Rachel C
  • Thank you for giving New York Actors your site. I use it every single day. And recently I auditioned for a feature film posted on your site and I found out on Friday 9/15/05 that I was cast. Love your site and keep up all the hard work you have been doing. It is appreciated. Thank you.
    Peace and Light,
    Sydney Chase

The next Actors' Career Fair is coming soon! Here is what you can do at the ACF:

  • Drop off your headshot and résumé to a combination of 20 different casting professionals; every ACF features new Casting Director and Agent drop-off bins
  • Attend a seminar
  • Audition for up to four casting professionals that night

Here is how it works:

The Drop-Offs/Mail-Ins:
Do you want to eliminate the tedious mass mailings from your life? If so, let us do the work for you. Bring 20 headshots and résumés and drop them off to us in our bins any time between 6 and 9 P.M. The cost is just $10—less than if you were doing your own mass mailing, and a lot more convenient.

Anyone who cannot attend the ACF can mail their promotional materials to us by the ACF date for us to distribute for you. The cost for this is $13. See below for mailing address.
