The Language of the Agents and the Casting Director is spoken in:
- Your Resume
- Your Pictures
- Telling agents and Casting Directors you are not green.
- Have a good follow-up, how, when and what you say in your follow-up.
- Your Demo Reel, how it’s edited, where is shown, what you put on it.
- Website— always put your direct contact info, even if you have an agent.
