VOICEOVERS Recently I have been talking with my mentoring clients a lot about other jobs… But rather than other jobs that aren’t even loosely tied to acting, I am referring more to other jobs that really do still live within the acting realm – corporates, voiceovers, role plays, casting director assistant, the list goes on....
John, writer at The Stage, and lil old me, are back this month on Casting Networks talking all things healthy attitude vs unhealthy obsession in relation to fitness and our acting bodies. I think this is a BIGGIE for actors. We face daily and weekly criticism about how we look and our actual income depends on it. But...
Anyone who knows me well knows I have very specific opinions on using social media (especially professionally), on how many selfies a person should post, on what constitutes good etiquette and what doesn’t, and on what I think about the use of hashtags, specifically #blessed and #actorslife. Pretty much daily I want to throw someone under...
Well what a delight to get this casting notice sent to a few days ago from a filmmaker inviting me to audition…for what seems like a porn film. And this was NO April Fools! In the interest of being a good actor, I decided to pen my reply to said #filmmaker. My response to him...
It’s pretty common to get on set and meet divas acting up. They don’t even mean to be but they are. The rest of the crew are frantically working on set to get this light sorted, to get that prop just right, to discuss this next shot…. And then in waltzes an (diva) actor. #Sigh....
Beautiful people saying wonderful things
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.
