Are You Unique Enough?
Are You Unique Enough?
I know, I know. This is a weird question to ask. Truth is, I work with actors every day and find that there is a hesitancy to express their uniqueness. Really. It’s like there is something holding the talent back from the full expression of their personality. Now I have often said that it is your uniqueness that will book you that acting job. So then why are actors fearful of not showing who they really are when playing a role? Is playing a role supposed to be shown rather than felt? Is playing a role different than playing you? Let’s look into this important question and discover the answer to the question, “Are you Unique Enough?” on this episode of Casting Actors Cast, insights for actors from a casting director!

3 Keys to Confidence
3 Keys to confidence
You’ve heard me say that the confident actor is the actor that gets the gig. I do not mean being cocky or full of yourself but rather the actor that understands the value of a positive self-image. One that communicates the subtext, “I can’t wait to show you how I am going to play this role”. But what if you’re not feeling so confident about yourself. Self-doubt can be a lonely place and over time, can undermine your confidence and ultimately affect your career path. If this sounds like you, you are in the right place. In this episode of Casting Actors Cast as I give you the 3 keys to confidence. These keys will open the door to a better, smarter, positive approach to your acting and your acting career. I’m Jeffrey Dreisbach and this is Casting Actors Cast, the podcast for actors from a casting director!

How do you make your musical auditions on zoom the best they can be? The answer is here. On this podio (podcast video) I will “vocalize” the way to Zoom yourself so you can book the gig!
