Networking Game

The last couple weeks I have been focusing on my networking game, as it’s probably the poorest aspect in my toolbox. You see, I never thought about making connections that way. I had no idea I would need to go to events first. I thought I would do the auditions, now that I’ve been to…

Brush off the Acting Dust

When you leave something sitting for a few weeks it starts to build up dust. The same can be said for you tools as an actor, well it is for me anyway.   I try and keep my tools working, so I don’t forget how to use them but lately I get so caught up with life. A…

Finding The Right Agent

Some people find it easy and some hard, I was the latter. When I graduated drama school, I like many other actors after a few years in the comfort of a school atmosphere assume agents will just want me and then my career would take off. It wasn’t like that at all. I had peaked…

Tales of a Procrastinator

I’ve been procrastinating my whole life. It first started at a young age, my mother would  sit next to me when I was doing my homework to keep me focused on the task at hand and that’s still a problem today. The last few weeks I’ve been so busy with my retail job that my…

Oh No…Risky Business

What do I mean by that? Well in terms of acting, what I mean is, there are jobs we take on sometimes that we don’t fully trust. I’ve had my fair share of learning moments in this industry. When I first started I was so eager to get into acting, I signed up to an…

No More Store Bought Banana Bread (Paleo)

I spoke about the foods I eat in a previous post (The Paleo Actor) and I think it’s time I start sharing a little more, so fortnightly alternating between my acting blogs I will be introducing a blog all about food and health. In the food blog I will be posting recipes and alternatives to some of our foods that we just can’t seem to give up. I will also have my sister co-writing as some of…

Building the Ads brand

Building my brand has been a journey in itself. One of the paths I’m taking is doing a podcast with good friends. These podcasts are created by my good friend Scott Sowter and I, this fun little podcast is all about us reviewing films, the creative side of the film industry. In the podcast we…

To Study or not to Study

I don’t think there’s an answer anyone else can give you to this question but your own gut feeling. I know both types of people, the ones who stand by studying and the ones who don’t. For me, I knew nothing about the industry so I chose to study. I think as a child we can build our imagination really well but once we get…

The Paleo Actor 

I want to start off by saying I hate the word diet, the way I eat is a way of life not a diet. The choice of foods I eat is a little different to some people and might be controversial to others. I don’t eat wheat, I don’t consume dairy. In simple terms I…

The supporting links

Being supportive to a creative person can be a hard thing for some. People don’t always know what to say or how to say it when you don’t book a job and that’s okay.    I think it can be a real driving force for someone to have a good support system in place, be it friends, family and…
