Congrats to Julio Macias on his success in On My Block! 3 seasons strong, and I even caught his character’s name (Spooky) trending on Twitter the other night because droves of teenagers are in love with him now 😂. I wasn’t surprised at all to see Julio nail a career-making role. He was hungry, determined, kind, and down to earth when we shot. Seems to be the pattern. . . . . . . . . . #onmyblock #casting #actingadvice #netflix #actors #setlife #cholo #sagaftra #bookedit #castingdirector #headshots #spooky #helpful #actingclass #headshotsla

How to find a photographer. The best way to find a photographer is to ask your agency for the photographers they recommend. Agents have been in the area for a while and know who the top photographers are and who to avoid. If you don't have an agency, that's fine! I'd recommend just giving agencies in the area a call and asking who they typically recommend for headshot photographers. They'll likely be happy to help and you may even make a good connection! . . . #callidusagency #callidusadvice #actingtips #actingadvice #acting #headshots #headshotphotography #photography #motivation

When all else fails, learning a monologue through listening to yourself reading it is a really good idea. Preparation for my second #monologuemonday video on my YouTube channel, Viv's Films. #actingadvice #acting #actress #rehearsal

Straight from a casting directors’ mouth on her live this afternoon. No, it’s not just a 1980’s headshot trend. It’s back, and has been for quite some time. The number one principle in marketing: CLARIFY YOUR MESSAGE. Don’t make the customer burn unnecessary brain cells trying to figure out what you’re selling. Casting is busy and almost ALWAYS have a quick turnaround. Help them help you. 👌🏽 Give @taylorcasting a follow 🙏🏼 . . . . . . . . . #helpfulemployee #casting #actingadvice #commercialwardrobe #actors #setlife #commercialheadshot #sagaftra #bookedit #castingdirector #headshots #commercialactor #helpful #actingclass #headshotsla #headshotslosangeles #audition #killiansworkshop

Looking for an excuse? You won't find one here!! If you want something, you can make it happen. Sure there will be road blocks along the way, but that doesn't mean you stop trying. Don't take the easy way out. 😎

Watch my new ACTOR TALKS with Jane Gardner!! I feel like this is a right-on-time message, and when we did this interview we had no idea the world would get shut down. The most important theme of this interview was “What ignites you?” It’s definitely worth a watch. Jane is such an amazing person and I’m so glad I was able to work with her! Full interview in the bio! Comment below what ignites you!↙️ P.S. I tagged all the shows that I’m utterly in LOVE with right now! 💞 Check them out too!

Expertise is everything. Our first section is about quality. To make these pictures useful to you and your career, we strongly advise you hire a professional photographer who is an absolute expert in headshots for acting. Many can charge around $300 for headshot shoots and this certainly can be a difficult investment to justify especially starting out. We often see newer actors try to save money here going with amateur photographers or photographers who specialize or focus in other areas to try to save some money. We advise against this because the difference in quality is obvious, especially to casting directors who are looking at these pictures every day in the submissions on the projects they are casting. If the pictures look amateur then it can telegraph to the viewer that you are an amateur. . . . #callidusagency #calliusadvice #actingadvice #actingtips #headshots #headshotphotoshoots #motivation

Let’s take this quarantine time to do a little remembering. . . . Maybe it’s not about learning something new. Maybe it’s not creating something new. Maybe it’s not about acquiring a new skill, or trying a new workout, or reading a new book. . . . Maybe it’s about remember something we’ve forgotten. Maybe it’s about listening to the deep quite whisper in our heart thats begging us to listen. . . . . Remember your heart. Remember your dreams. Remember the child who couldn’t wait to do a dance, sing a song, or paint a picture. . . . Remember the risk you took, the love you had, and the people who supported you. . . . Remember the pretend you made, the clown you became, the prince you played, and the queen you held. . . . I know it’s hard to remember. The professional world works hard to make you forget. Agents, managers, teachers, casting directors try to mold you into their version of a ‘working actor’. Pretty soon we forget the important stuff. . . . When it becomes about the hustle, it’s hard to remember the dream. . . . Remember who you were before they told you who to be.

What makes a headshot great? What makes a headshot stand out above the rest and telegraphs to the viewer the message you want to get across? As we are all stuck at home, waiting out the coronavirus, we thought it would be a great time to go really deep into some specific topics. We have decided to start with headshots because they're a great starting point for many actors and also what seasoned actors continue to need and could probably learn to improve on as well. Keep a lookout for a full week of headshot tips and advice on the headshot process. .

Actors, you aren’t going to live forever. . . . For many, this has been a time of slowing down, of pausing, and remembering what’s truly essential. . . . So much of our life can be spent rushing between auditions, jobs, and classes. We can miss the very thing that makes our work meaningful, unique, and worth creating—our life. • • Last year, I turned 40. • • I don't consider that old, don't worry. I know I (probably) have plenty of time left, and there are lots of things still to do. • • But, after over 20 years of being in this industry, I can feel time moving. And after 2 weeks of staying inside, I’ve been reminded of the importance of the important things • • Here are 5 things I hope to do before I die. 👇👇 They're 5 things I'd recommend you doing as well. • • • • “An hour may not be worth what it used to be, but somehow, it feels more valuable."
