Hi I’m Peter Pamela Rose, Casting Director and certified Life and Career Coach for the Entertainment Industry. My goal is to break down the business of being a working actor into a simple, actionable, step by step Roadmap.
Episode 125: The Courage to be Yourself
Helen Keller, “to keep our faces towards change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate, is strength undefeatable.”
Why is it so hard to be ourselves?
Big T Truth vs. little t truth
When you let your ego drive, you give up your power
Giving yourself the courage to be yourself.
You can not buy peace of mind, it needs to be earned.
Truth, is infinitely powerful
little t truth is EGO
little t truth is based in fear
Episode 124: Interview with Bicoastal Manager Malissa Young
In this episode Malissa and I talk about:
What it means to be a bicoastal manager.
What she looks for when looking for new talent.
Qualities of her favorite clients:
Wow factor in self-tapes
What Melissa wants actors to know but doesn’t have time to tell them:
Know you as the actor has a business side to it
Make the chart
Know who you saw and what they called you in for
Send thank you’s
Coaching and classes
Episode 123: Is Your Resume Speaking the Right Language?
The Language of the Agents and the Casting Director is spoken in:
Have a good follow-up, how, when and what you say in your follow-up.
Your Demo Reel, how it’s edited, where is shown, what you put on it.
Website— always put your direct contact info, even if you have an agent.
The outline of a resume: If you put so much stuff on it that it’s hard to read, it’s going to get deleted or discarded and you don’t want that!
Episode 122: Interview w/ CD Mary Egan-Callahan
How does the process work?
Ad agency hires the director
They will send scripts, usage, when it’s shooting, the boards, and conflicts
CD sends them out to agents-- to their favorite agents (about 10).
Agents send a list with pictures and CDs send back a list of who they want to see/ self-tape
CDs send the auditions to the ad agency and the director
Ad agency and directors send back a list of callbacks
The client decides who gets the role
Episode 121: Life Coaching for the Actor
What is Life Coaching?
One on One Support System
Help you move your life closer to the version you want to be
What are your ultimate goals?
Then we start to work on the action steps? When they don’t get done, what is getting in your way?
"For Coaching work to be successful, it has to be nuanced."
Goals: What are you doing to achieve this goal?
“Anxiety and fear come into the room because they are there to serve us and protect us.”
Episode 120: Limiting Beliefs and Empowering Questions
We are each the product of our own belief system
Carl Jung, “Man is so imprisoned in his type of thinking that he is simply incapable of fully understanding another standpoint.”
You can change the beliefs that created your reality.
Limiting Belief: Something you accept about life, about yourself, about your world, and the people in it that limits you in some way.
Curt Carlson, “Obstacles are those frightening things you see when you take your eye off the target.”
