To paraphrase Marcus Lemonnis (CNBC's THE PROFIT):
"If you want to break in to a saturated market you must be able to rise to the top of the list."
So how do you it? I want to personally help you. (I, being Jennifer Rudolph, the Founder of The Actor's Green Room)
So here's what you have to :)
You MUST learn all you possibly can about the market you want to break in to. You must focus on honing your product to be the most unique and efficient it can be, solve a problem and fill a need and do the INNER work to support your OUTER endeavors and build relationships the industry that you wish to break into.
It is an expensive undertaking. From the cost of Actors Access to Casting Networks to headshots and reproductions and websites and casting workshops...it's expensive. It is close to impossible to get representation without having pre-existing relationships with casting directors and/or credits that you have amassed on your own. (much like on SHARK TANK they will always ask you what your sales are - what you have generated on your own and so forth). It is close to impossible to get called in for major episodics and films without already knowing the casting directors. It is what it is and it's not changing...so WE have to get creative...WE have to adjust our sails to meet the winds. We have to "fly off the shelves."
Enter IMMERSION: a world of ongoing education and support which every actor needs to succeed. And I've made it inexpensive.
The cost of IMMERSION Premium membership is $300/year (which comes out to $5.76/week (the cost of a Starbucks Grande Carmael Frappucino - after tax)
