Make a portfolio
You need headshots to present at every audition you go to. Take professional photographs to include in your portfolio. Learn how to be comfortable in front of the camera.
Show up at every audition
Always look for auditions to attend. You might not get the job on your first try, so you’ll have to try again and again. As you attend auditions, interact with others in your industry. Never get late for an audition.
