In on a Reel Deal!
The business of acting is all about self-promotion. As an actor,
you need an affordable way to make yourself known. What if you
could get your headshots, résumé, and even your
demo reel out to casting professionals as easily as handing out
business cards? What if your profile and marketing materials were
in a searchable database for all casting professionals to see?
With the Reel Deal, all that is possible! Visit www.thereeldeal.com

My Lady: The Long-Distance Relationship
A great script begins with a great idea. Be it a big-money studio
hack or an unrepresented, unsold scribe, this is our one unremitting,
prevailing mantra. To achieve that great script, we must first
spawn that great idea. That pesky great idea.
to a Commercial Modeling Career
I wanted to be a model since I was about 16, since I finally had
my hair the right way and had made the height and measurement
requirements expected for runway modeling, yet I knew nothing,
nothing at all about the business. What's worse is that I didn't
think I needed to know anything, either, except knowing how to
look good of course. I couldn't have been more wrong.
