not sure where to put this but please help! - June 28th 2010, 05:58 PM

i love acting so much, it's my favorite thing to do. and i want to be in movies so bad. but everything online says you need a good agent to get auditions. and i know that you shouldn't have to pay them up front, they just take 10% of my wages when i get a job, but the problem is, all i'm finding in my area are agencies and websites. so does anyone know where to find a good talent/acting agent? (and no, i dont live in LA)

I have a couple of friends with agents, but a lot of agents prefer to take on people who have had experience (annoying, I know ) Have you tried maybe signing up to sites for film extras?? You can get more experience this way and you could also get spotted. Just be patient, if you want an anget that bad you'll definitely get one in time!!!

Yes!! I'm always on the lookout for it myself. Keep an eye out for open castings in your area or nearest city, or you can join extras groups!! You'll generally have to pay though, I know Ireland's biggest extras company requires a €99 registration fee..:/

Noooo never pay to be an extra! You honestly don't have to! I was so gutted the agency I was signed with did their 2010/2011 casting shots the time I was on holiday, but they took your photo and stuff so do not give any agency any money.

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

Really..?? We definitely have to here...not to be an extra I mean, but to sign up as a member to an agency which gets you jobs as an extra...
