    If you look up, "Disney Open Calls", you can find a page on Disney's REAL SITE about casting calls. They don't always have them, but check all the time to make sure you're not missing out! Hope this helped. :)

    Ahh! Honestly if it weren’t for you, were would I be? I asked my mom if I could look for an acting agent, she said “what ever you want, you reach high for those stars, momma is proud.” AHHH WHAT? I was so happy and today I found an agency near me and were going there in a couple of days :))

    Hey! I'm Mia and I'm from the Netherlands. I love your videos so much and they gave me more confidence in doing what I want: acting😊 But I have a problem, the movie industry in the Netherlands is quite small, with a lot of the same actors which means it's very hard to break into.. I have 'signed' with a few casting agencies (I don't know if that is the same as getting an agent) but I don't get any jobs. I think the problem is, that I live to far from Amsterdam (it's a 2 hour drive, but in the Netherlands this is bery far😂)... What would you do in my situation?
    Ps sorry for my english

  • Leah Marie

    I love musicals and I want to be in some when I'm older. But I am not very good at singing, I do pretty well in a group but by myself I am not that good (So auditioning might be tough). I would be fine not being the lead or center of attention as long as I'm on stage I'm happy. Maybe a dancer but I'm 14 and I have shoulder, knee, and ankle problems I'm not sure if my body will be able to handle that... Anybody have ideas to build strength or become a better singer or something, please tell me.

    Okay so I was looking for workshops around my area but an agency popped up its called SAG-AFTRA (can you guys tell I don't know anything about the acting industry lol) but I was looking up things you would need to know about agencies and they said you shouldn't have to pay them, they will pay you, but the agency's website said its $35 a year which isn't a problem I'm just confused as to what's really good with this whole agency thing

      MajesticMelody normally most agencies will only make money when you do, normally they get 10% - 20% of what you get.

    • Birthday Blast
      Birthday Blast Year ago +4

      Saint Che I have the same problem, but I think it's just because you actually care about their opinion, I'm always worried about how they'll see me if I mess up. With people I don't know, it's like I made a bad impression, but they don't know me enough to judge me harshly because of it. I don't know if this makes sense, but I really hope this helps, however every person is different.

    SCENBOT IS AMAZING!! It is completely free(unless you want to upgrade to pro but you don't need to) You get different scripts every month and submit your video audition and it is viewed by LEGIT casting directors/agencies etc...They will be able to contact you if you score high enough. I made it to the honorable mentions, not the top ten yet but hopefully soon. Good luck!😀

    SceneBot is a free app where you can "get scene" by casting directors, agencies, and managers. Every month you get a script and you have about 25 days to memorize it and film you perform it. A very cool factor is the Act Back Track! It's a recorded voice of an actor/actress, so you have a voice to act to! You can adjust how long you have to talk in between each line that the other actor speaks, so no need to rush or to speak very slowly. After you submit your audition, the SceneBot Crew will watch it and score your audition. If you score high, you will make it to Top Selects. If you score high but not quite high enough for Top Selects, you will make it to Honorable Mentions. If you make it to Top Selects, other SceneBot users can vote for you audition and other Top Selects. The first ten auditions with the most votes will make it to the Top Ten. Top Ten auditions are sent directly to agencies, casting directors, and managers! However, Top Ten auditions are not the only auditions that are viewed by people in the industry. All auditions are available to be seen by these people. Kai Kay on RU-clip made an amazing FAQ on the app. Check it out! Hope this helps!

    USE THE APP "SCENEBOT" ITS LEGIT! You can submit your own auditions with different scripts you get every month with an "act back track" if you like. An "act back track" is a real actor that reads the other character in your script and you can film it with the real actor talking! Check it out! It helped me so much!
