Original event synopsis
Social media has become the primary communication tool for promotion of actors, productions and anyone else trying to get ahead in the business. Demo reels and cattle call auditions have been replaced by self-taping targeted auditions. While know-who and personal contacts are still important, social media is now the way to get your foot in the door.
With today’s technology, cameras, social media and the internet, you can now work or sell your video all over the world and YOU can find that work yourself! Learn how to promote yourself in social media. Hear tips about self-taping auditions, such as taping in a fraction of the typical time and what to do when you don't have someone to read the audition with you.
