Disney auditions demand character, not just pretty faces.
Many films take the audience thru some dangerous quest, therefore there is a demand for a strong willed Character to lead it.
There are many auditions for Disney projects and other kids casting for these strong character types.
Diversity is key
Actors need a diverse portfolio. Consequently, cute headshots alone will not impress casting people.
Casting people need to see Character. As a result, portfolios that are diverse and full of character will have an opportunity to be cast more.
More castings means more experience and connections. More experience and connections can lead to larger gigs.
That is why I say; “Disney auditions demand character”.
The “Trooper” series of shoots show strength and the “Fight” face, they hint of Wars in the Stars and on strange worlds.
These are great Character shots to be the Hero or a Tactical villain.
Only a well written script can decide which it really is.
These shots are an conversation generating addition to actor comp cards.
In the entertainment industry there is a “Need” to have something in your portfolio that is an attention grabber.
Actors need something that makes them stand out, so they are remembered.
You want something that will “Entertain” casting people.
Drivers Photography helps actors achieve a showcase of cast-able characters to help them land casting calls and roles.
