MY HEADSHOTS AREN’T VERY GOOD RIGHT NOW / I ONLY HAVE ONE HEADSHOT…

Headshots don’t have to be professional ones, and the evaluation can be done with just one headshot. Our evaluators can provide feedback on how to take contrasting looks or how to best improve your headshot(s).

 

I’VE BEEN THINKING OF GETTING NEW HEADSHOTS BECAUSE I DON’T THINK MY CURRENT ONES ARE A GOOD REPRESENTATION…

Use your current headshots and utilize feedback from professionals to figure out how to enhance it better to target the right audiences before spending the money for new headshots.

 

HOW SHOULD I FILM OR WHAT SHOULD I INCLUDE IN MY SLATE?

When filming your slate, we want to get a glimpse of the real you. First impressions are made in a brief moment of time, which is why we limit the slate to 15 seconds.

In the video please give your name and who you are, as if introducing yourself to a friend. What do you want to say as an artist? Discuss your passion as an artist. No actor pretense, and using your natural voice is vital. Please include height if you feel that sets you apart.

 

HOW ARE THE EVALUATORS CHOSEN FOR ANY GIVEN SUBMISSION?

Evaluators are carefully selected by our experienced in-house industry professionals. The selection is based on a balanced mix between talent agents, managers, and casting directors to obtain a breadth of feedback and provide an objective POV for your Actor Brand™.

 

IF I’VE USED THE SERVICE BEFORE, IS THERE A DISCOUNT FOR RE-SUBMITTING MY PROFILE AGAIN?

Yes, returning clients can get up to 20% off the submission fee. When you re-submit, please confirm your last date of service.

 

CAN I REQUEST LEGIT CDS SPECIFICALLY?

Requesting specific CDs eliminates the balance and breadth of feedback, which is a key element of our Build Your Brand service.

 

IS IT ONE COST TO GET STARTED OR JUST FOR THE SUBMISSION?

The cost is a flat fee per submission. A submission is two headshots and a 15 second slate.

 

CAN I SUBMIT MY HEADSHOT(S) AND SLATE MULTIPLE TIMES?

Yes! Actors who have redone their headshots/slate can re-submit them to our service again to see if they get different feedback from evaluators.
