Met with my new manager, ESI Network, to sign paperwork and get my homework, talk about pictures, plans, etc. I have quite a few things to do in order to help my manager market me correctly. Fortunately, having been in the business for over 20 years, many of the things are already done like listing with numerous casting websites, budgeting for business, investing in my business, etc.
Now, I need to do things like get specific about my short and long terms goals, and make a list of the shows that I want to do and in which I can see myself being cast. These are things I’ve been thinking about anyway, but good to get organized and put it down in black and white.
Of course, I need new headshots, too. I know I’ve needed them for awhile, but thought I’d wait until I was out here. It also helps to know what types of shots the manager and agent need. So, I’m gearing up for that. I’ve been referred to a good photographer by acting friends, and I’m excited to work with him.
I’ve also scheduled 10 casting director workshops during the month of July, so that will keep me busy in addition to my voice over work!
Found a hairdresser here – so that’s a sigh of relief, too. 🙂
Have to say I’ve been missing my family especially over this holiday weekend. We’ve been keeping in touch, but didn’t feel like I could make the trip home for the 4th of July while in the middle of everything here. Will hope to work out all that scheduling as we go. I will be going home for a visit soon
