The actor's life is a lifelong journey and sometimes that means changing locations. While New York and Los Angeles are some of the larger film and theatre in the US, there are still other awesome locations that you can live in and still be a part of the entertainment industry!
Here are some of the things that you should consider if you are moving to a new actor's market:
- Research what projects have been filmed in the state that you are moving to. Most states have a Film Office Website that allows you to see what films have had scenes or have been filmed in its entirety in that state.
- Research casting directors and previous casting calls to get an idea of what most of the casting calls in the area are (ie commercial, tv, film, theatre etc)
- Check actors access and casting networks to get an idea of how frequently new casting calls are created and posted for that region
- Connect with other actors through Facebook groups that are film and state specific (obviously be wary of sharing personal information with strangers). Social Media is becoming a great way to connect with other people in other regions to get an idea of what the film market is for them!
-When you move, find a class and community to get involved in! Finding a film community that is local is a great way to get involved in the local film field!
-In addition to researching casting directors, research agents and talent managers! Make sure you know who is in your region and what categories they represent talent for (ie commercial, VO, Film/TV Etc)
