Auditions: Thursday, April 21, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Thursday, April 21, 2011.

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.



Casting Call for Stock Photoshoot

Uberstock is a film & video production company based in the Portland Oregon area. We've been in business for 4 years. We primarily shoot Video not photography.

----This casting call is for models that can act and look like powerful business people. The age group we are looking for ranges from late twenties to baby boomers. Though some wardrobe will be provided, please have at least two options of business attire.

The exact date of the shoot is being decided as we are still in pre-production.

The differences between still photography and acting in video are quite substantial. Though not required, video/acting experience is a plus.
