Resources

Casting directors are always looking to cast great actors, special skills talent, and real people of all ages –  musicians, dancers, athletes, teams, business people, models, and much more.  They are on your side, they want you to book the role. Vancouver casting directors look good in the eyes of their clients when they book great talent.

There is  no magic formula…  the one universal theme to success in acting is: be the best “YOU” possible.

The best ways to do this are:  stay current with the industry,  hone your skills, identify trends, know the lingo,  get educated (classes), train (by way of an acting coach), do your homework, and get experience to help prepare/improve your auditions. Again, Be the best “YOU` you can be:)
