A screaming baby or toddler is never great for a casting, either for your own well being, or for the other auditionees. But let’s face it, we can’t pay for a babysitter for every audition (when they usually command a minimum of at least three hours), and society just isn’t fully set up for freelancing mothers – right...
I won’t lie. I am not the mother who is going to win any prizes for not drinking, for being the perfect doting angelic parent who makes sure every single thing that goes into their baby’s mouth is organic, or who hasn’t had a little lie in…in their baby’s teepee. Yeah that’s right. I build him a...
Last month I was delighted to share my insights on Voiceovers in my first ever Backstage article. When Backstage invited me to become a guest expert I was absolutely thrilled. I’ll be honest… I have hoped to be a writer on Backstage since I first started writing B.A.B.E. (and that was a long time ago...
There’s a lot to be said for an excellent reel. Just like an excellent headshot, an excellent showreel can get you into a room as a relative unknown. It can also stop you ever being seen if it’s absolute sh@t. So it pays to get it right. To get advice on what to put in your...
One of the biggest frustrations I had when I first moved to the UK over a decade ago, was that I had no idea where to go to find acting work. Sure I could google it, but that didn’t tell me which sites were legitimate and which were a total fraud (just like looking for...
Beautiful people saying wonderful things
Angela was probably one of the very first people I spoke to when I moved to London from Brisbane in 2016. I was a little overwhelmed by such a big city and a much larger industry than I was used to. Angela guided me through getting set up in London from Spotlight applications to new headshots to working out which agents I wanted to email. She made working in London seem not only possible but completely achievable. I've now worked in a number of short films, and theatrical productions as well as recently signing with Williams Bulldog Management. Angela gave the confidence to go out and throw myself into the London scene, I'm so glad she did and I totally still call her up for slices of B.A.B.E .wisdom.
Two years after graduating from Drama School as a mature student, I had worked a reasonable amount - but following an extended quiet period, I was quickly losing momentum and motivation to drive my acting career forward. I booked in for a coaching session with Angela and the time we spent together helped me redefine and refocus on my goals, but more importantly, it guided me towards a path of self development that has helped me strengthen my self belief and resilience, two things us actors truly need. Angela is an incredibly empathetic and supportive coach - and an inspirational human being. I wholeheartedly recommend actors booking in for a session with her.
I am so grateful for the day I met Angela! I believe it literally meant the difference between the success and failure of my enterprise. I knew what I wanted to achieve but I didn't quite know Diana how to get there and that's where Ang came in. She has tonnes of really practical tips about social media, marketing, branding and much more. She showed me handy time-savers and linked me up with relevant contacts she knew for possible collaborations. She is encouraging and passionate and I always left feeling uplifted and energised for action, with a clear idea of what I needed to do next, to take my company to the next level. I know it won't always be easy but since working with Angela, everything just seems to be running so much more smoothly and effortlessly. I think that's partly due to all the practical knowledge and extra support I now have and partly due to Angela's emphasis on my own passions. She tunes in to what I enjoy most and ensures I keep working on those things and don't get diverted onto things that would drain my motivation and energy. She helps me to stay focused, set goals and then achieve them in the most efficient way possible.
My mentoring session with Angela has definitely been an important step in forwarding my career. Angela has a great understanding of the craft of acting as well as the business side of the industry. In a short period of time, she's helped me visualize and pinpoint my strengths instead of focusing on how hard this business is. She has taught me not to be ashamed of ambitions, to aim high but be realistic and take the reasonable steps towards achievable goals. She's also a lot of fun which I think is fundamental in a coach, especially because acting and everything about acting should be fun! Do get in touch with her and let her guide you. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Such is the influence that Angela Peters will have on you. An inspiring and motivating woman that radiates Melinda Lee Harvey positivity. She helped me believe in myself and taught me that I can aspire to great things – things bigger than my body represents, bigger than the town I live in and a lot more than my heart could imagine. It is through her non-judgemental and humble approach to life that she leads by an example you want to follow… I did. Through work and personal challenges, Angie guided me, but let me make the decisions for myself, and to trust my own choices. She has a gift to be able to teach, coach, guide and lead… as well as a genuine love of helping people.
I really value our chats because you offer a perspective I don’t get from other actors. And it’s really grounding.
Having Angela Peters as an industry mentor has resulted in me understanding the industry from a business perspective. This in turn has allowed me to quantify my strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures, profits and loss – and consequently has made me better at the *business* of being an actor. Angela’s insights inspire and focus you in equal measure, and stem from her 1st hand knowledge of how to get ahead in the business we call ‘show’. Highly recommended for neophytes and seasoned pros alike.
I would like to say a big thank you to Angela for all of her help, and the opportunities she has given me. After only 10 days of being here (Australia), I have made contacts the likes of which would have taken me years to make myself. A genuine person who loves what she does and loves to see other people do what they love.
