Auditions: Thursday, March 17, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Thursday, March 17, 2011.

I want to continue this week's specific topic of discussion about getting an agent. I know we talked about this a while back, but it's worth bringing up again because of all of the exciting film projects currently floating around the Portland area. How important is having an agent in a smaller market like Portland? Are you currently signed, and does having an agent help you get work and exposure in Portland, or does it just serve a purpose on paper? If you don't have an agent, what steps are you taking to get signed? Share in the chat box below where you are with your career and how you feel about being represented by an agent.

If you are a fan of the blog, please share this with actor friends. If you have any feedback for me on how to improve my blog, share this with me so that I may work on improving the blog.
