SAAS – Meeting Notes 3/5 & TASKS 3/5-3/11

Yo, Salon Homies ~

Thanks, Brian P. for guiding us this week and bringing pilots from Brian N.!

*If you miss a Salon, you can make it up! Email actorsalon to request a day/time.

Joyful Reminders
+ We are not ladies and gentlemen on the stage. We do not need to be polite to the other actors when performing on stage. We do not need to take care of the other actors on stage.

"Selected credits" sounds better than "Partial credits"
"Webseries" or "web series" –> Your choice
– Credits for webseries – Treat them as TV when listing roles (lead, recurring, guest star, co-star)

Marketing Packages for drop-off
What does it include?
+ Headshot/resume
+ Cover letter – Full size or buck slip
+ DVD w/reel
*On outside of envelope, write "REFERRED BY _________" in big marker

Casting Director Notes

Sarah Katzman (Beach/Katzman Casting) – Does not look at postcards (but still send them)
+ She DOES read personal notes, so put your postcard in an envelope and write her a note! (Per Tamara from last week’s Act Now! workshop)

PDB – Business Relationships
Brian N. has a season subscription to CTG – Not too expensive
–> He uses his second seat to invite someone with whom he wants to deepen a PDB relationship
–> Being an Ovation voter works

Putting Ourselves on Tape
* When putting yourself on tape, MEMORIZE
* It will NOT be perfect the first time – Please do not judge as you learn
What do each of us need so that we can put ourselves on tape and all we need to do is invite a reader over?

You need:
A camera – iPhone, digital, computer camera? (Lisa will try hers)
A tripod – Can prob find one for cheap on
Lighting that is good enough (not perfect!)
Sound that is good enough (not perfect!)
