Actor Hits & Misses (Part 1)

Two industry voices. Both Jack Menashe, senior agent, President of Independent Artists Agency, and casting director, director Paul Russell are candid in their views about the do’s & don’t’s about the do’s and don’t’s in pictures, resumes, emails and marketing.

This Week: Do’s and Don’t’s for Actors’ Pictures, Resumes, E-mails & Marketing

As part of a three-part video series we begin with the first of several interviews filmed by Back Stage.

Two industry voices. Jack Menashe, who served as President of Independent Artists Agency, and myself are candid in our views about the do’s & don’t’s for actor pictures, resumes, emails and marketing. (Length: 3 mins., 22 seconds)

NOTE: Yes, I know about the jerry-curl hair flopping about my forehead in the video. It was just one of those days when a few errant strands felt like partying. But hey, look at my new headshot to the left; taken by none other than Jack Menashe — apart from his agenting he’s multi-talented. With my endorsement Jack is offering Answers for Actors readers a major dicsount. When you contact him via just mention code: Jmen123.

O.K. onto the vid and my misbehaving curls… (grrrr).
