How can I find acting auditions that require me to send in an audition tape?

I’ve been looking up a lot of acting auditions for a while now & I rarely see any that ask to submit an audition tape. I’d love to make an audition tape for any auditions, but I don’t know how and where I can find these. Can anyone help?

    Audition tapes are a thing of the past. Unless you’re a star, you need to be in the SAME state where the auditions and shootings are being held.

    Sometimes, however, you will have to record your auditon and send it via email.

    If you want to find MAJOR auditions, you NEED an agent.

    Here’s the cliffsnotes version of what you can do to do to get into acting and eventually get an agent:

    1.EDUCATE YOURSELF FIRST!

    5. Get an Agent

    To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won’t see you unless you’re SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

    You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
    -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
    -Attend a showcase and impress them. By showcase I do not mean scammy conventions like IMTA, IPOP, Proscout, or Best New Talent. I mean legit ones like at Actor Connection, Reel pros, Network Studios, etc.
    -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you’re interested in

    DON’T
    -Email them unless they tell you to. IT’S UNPROFESSIONAL!
    -Call unless they tell you to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
    -Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
    -Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent’s ONLY make money when you do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print
