In short, the not-so-great
performer is difficult to respect.
And if they are difficult to respect, they are difficult to book.
I have met several of these no-so-great performers over my years in this business.
I have also met several GREAT performers.
The good news is that the number of really bad performers is few and far between. They will be ignored by casting, and eventually fall off the agency rosters that won’t let them go (due to some misguided sense of loyalty), and they will go the way of the Dodo Bird.
The bad news is that the number of GREAT performers is few and far between as well. Most of the industry falls in the spectrum somewhere in between not-so-great and GREAT.
However, I believe that with a little bit of knowledge, resources and guidance, MANY of those in the middle of the spectrum have the potential to become GREAT performers.
You game if I help you make that move to ‘GREAT’?
I hope so...
Because if you want to garner the respect of a performer that is worthy of more bookings, higher value bookings, and longevity in this business…then it’s time to strive for something slightly above mediocre. Maybe it doesn’t end up with ‘great’. But I believe that just by the action of striving for this target, you'll set yourself apart from 90% of performers in this industry.
It really doesn’t take much, as you’ll soon see.
What follows next is the anatomy of a GREAT film industry performer.
One that garners respect.
One that every agent wants to sign, and every set wants to hire.
One that you can easily model for yourself.
