An Effective Acting Resume: LET THEM KNOW WHAT YOU’VE DONE
The most important feature of an effective resume is that it is truthful.
I can guarantee that someone, someday will spot a lie on your resume and will call you out on it. Worse, they will deem you untrustworthy and pass on casting you.
→ If your film or television credits are extra work, call them either extra work or give them a general descriptive title.
→ If your theatrical credits are ensemble, again list them as ensemble.
→ If you have done a master class with a person of name recognition, list that as a master class rather than having studied with them.
Be sure to check and re-check that you have spelled everyone’s name correctly. People often get offended if their name is misspelled.
The resume should be set up in such a way that it can be read at a glance.
