We've all done it in other areas of our lives. Gotten together with friends, family or co-workers and come up with ideas. So, I thought it might be a good idea for us to try it this Thursday at 8 pm, Pacific Standard Time on my internet radio show.
This is a session that's open to actors, filmmakers, writers, casting directors, artists in general. The point is to come up with ideas to help one another self-promote. Whatever our artistic bent in life, we need to put our services out there for public consumption. Unless we've already "made it" and our phone is ringing off the hook, all of us could use a leg up, or at least some great ideas on how to pick ourselves up by our bootstraps.
I've certainly given out a bunch of my ideas on what we can do to be marketing ourselves, but I want to hear from YOU! The collective mind is always better than just one person in the dark, blindly trying to come up with good stuff. Let's come together and help each other out.
Don't like to call in live to a radio show? 'Sallright. As much as I would love to hear from you, it isn't necessary. Leave a comment here, @ or DM me on my Twitter stream or send me an email--actingwithoutthedrama (at) gmail (dot) com. Let's figure out innovative ideas to connect with others in the industry.
An example of what I'm talking about? Kristy Hatsell (@Kristi_Gail) put together something called Actors Supporting Actors on facebook and it looks to be a really excellent way to network with other actors in the Los Angeles area. If you're in that area, you should check it out.
So, get those brains a-hummin', folks! I want to hear from you. This will only work if we step outside our comfort zone and participate. #callme #Iamlonely :)
