How do themed Headshots help an Actor or Model ?
Many People ask about:
How to get into the acting industry?
Or How to become an child actor?
If you really want to get acting jobs you have to show them “Character”.
Casting people are not casting for “actors”, rather they are trying to fill roles that are Characters in a script.
There can certainly be great results to offer themed headshots. For instance, when you are trying to show what Character you can bring to their production.
Some Actors or Models hide the very character that might be essential to helping them land many roles.
What are Casting people looking for?
Finally, what are Casting people looking for? Above all they are looking for Characters.
Characters that bring their project to life. It is the Character details that cause the audience to connect.
