How to re-engage your agent?
It requires these kind of mammoth balls to shift your relationship w/ur team & get them exciting about pitching you.
You’ve tried calling, asking for more auditions, bringing snacks to the office, getting the breakdowns, but you’re still not going out enuf or for anything meaningful.
In order to get a different outcome, you have to try a different engagement strategy.
The first step is to figure out exactly what type of work you want to do. If you can’t name the show, the writer, the acting style, the look and feel of the show, then no wonder, you’re not getting what you want: YOU’RE NOT CLEARLY ASKING FOR IT
Try this Exercise
1. Start watching the medium you want to work in daily. Watch the drama, half hour, netflix show and take notes like a detective
2. Which character engages you and why? What’s their fatal flaw.
3. Go through 25 shows on air right now and complete this exercise. Please note recurring emotional chords.
This is the beginning of figuring out how to create your emotional brand & pitch it to your agent or use it to make work that shows off your unique gifts.
