What's been going on, you ask? Short answer: a lot!
If you want different results you have do things differently, right? So this past month I've kicked my marketing strategy up a few notches. Along with submitting online everyday and calling casting directors for parts I'm right for, I've also set a goal to reach out to someone every week from here till December, whether through an email, phone call, postcard, etc... This week's self-imposed task was to send a postcard to casting offices stating my goal for the year to be cast in an Off-Broadway production. Don't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling! At the beginning of the month, I dropped off my demo reel at seven different casting offices that I've been targeting since February. I wrapped them in pretty packages and off on their merry way they went. Recently I created a Twitter account to follow all the offices and theaters I want to work with. Follow me @Bea_Leal! The old resume got a dusting off as well and it is now more polished and organized which is a great feeling to carry into an audition. Headshots are next in the "remodeling" department but I'm waiting until I finish the ones I already have (note to self: never order 100 again!) All of this said and done brings me to my next order of business- reaching out to the people who know me and love me best. You. I highly value your opinion, so if you've got any advice, suggestions, feedback, constructive criticism or just plain positivity please don't hesitate to send it my way. Until then, see you next month!
