    Hi Leon, my expertise is not in screenwriting, but if you are really
    serious about it, I would advise you to set your sights on going to college
    where there is a good film program, or where you can take creative writing
    and screenwriting classes! There you will get the education you need in
    writing, and start networking with industry professionals. Best of luck :)

  • John Schakel Jr:

    I have been acting for 8 years and have done both student and non student
    films. I like doing student films once in a while. It give me a chance to
    repay the helping hand that was given to me when I first stated. It also
    helps me keep my skills up to a high level and current.

  • David Robbins:

    Great advice and mucho, mucho appreciated!

  • 2kosher:

    Great info as always! The “clean” background looks mucho better! Too
    distracting with all the clutter in the background.

  • TipsOnActing:

    Casting directors understand that everyone starts somewhere! That being
    said, traditionally a reel is supposed to feature tape from professional
    projects. You definitely can tape, upload, and show monologues/self-taped
    auditions as long as it is clear that they are supplemental to the reel.
    Hope that helps!

  • TipsOnActing:

    They are a group of clips edited together from professional projects that
    feature an actors talent. The reel is shown to potential employers who want
    a glimpse of an actor’s skill set.

  • Jihan DaCosta:

    My work has primarily been extra work, since that wouldn’t make a good reel
    would it be OK to do a 2 min or under monologue? Would that be suitable for
    actorsaccess and 800casting?

  • Daniel Knight:

    LOVE the “point-of-diminishing returns” perspective; keeping track of the
    fun element; and knowing when the right time for the individual actor to
    move on footage-wise is. GREAT stuff as per usual. Thank you veddy, veddy,
    much!

  • Broc Trammell:
