Starting in a unique field like preforming arts, including becoming a New York actor, it can be difficult to know what information is accurate and how to get started in such a competitive field.
Latitude Talent Studios is lucky to meet with new actors almost daily to help steer them in the right direction. Like Models, there is much out dated advice that is on the internet. Many actors think that the only way to become a success is to land a talent agency.
Regardless of your look, a talent agency doesn’t sign an actor because they are charming or even because they are a superb entertainer; an actor gets signed to a talent agency because the agent knows they will make money off of the actor from bookings.
Unless you are a published actor, don’t expect to get signed right away. Landing acting auditions is the first thing an actor will want to see on your resume.
Finding auditions, especially in New York City, can be done with out the help of an agency.
Latitude Talent helps connect Models and actors with the tools, resources and opportunities to help talent, regardless of their experience level get exposure.
