Auditions: Friday, April 22, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Friday, April 22, 2011.

Due to some upcoming early morning shoots, I wanted to give everyone a heads up that the daily post time for auditions may vary moving forward.

Now, back to our topic of discussion for the remaining few days of this week! We have spent some time focusing on finding auditions, audition preparation, and booking the right type of work. No matter how talented and gorgeous you may be, it always comes down to who you know, or rather, who knows you.

With Portland being such a small city compared to the LA and NYC markets, I am very surprised and impressed by how many networking events there are every month and even every week. Were you aware of these networking events and opportunities to mingle with Portland's film community?

With six made-in-Portland films premiering over the next six weeks, along with the monthly Portland Independent Film Meet-up
(or find it here on Facebook), the weekly get together on Wednesday nights for Megann's Night, and OMPA events, this is enough to keep any local actor busy with networking.

How important is it to make an appearance at these events, and how much does it make a difference in your career? Do you attend any or all of these events? How has it affected the work you are getting, and how have you grown from attending these events?

The big question of the week is - how does networking play a role in your acting career?

Let's start up this week's chat and discuss your thoughts about networking, attending events, and how this has made a difference in your acting career!

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.
