Battle plan

Why you should
– especially in German-speaking countries –
can’t afford not to curate your showreel.

In Germany, an enormous amount of roles are filled directly from the production line, i.e. without prior casting.

Without a fun strategy for the future in the acting industry and hoping that, with a bit of luck, ability will prevail, this is not a concept, but rather aimless dreaming. Actively shape your path instead of passively waiting for someone to find you.

One aspect of this strategic path is to turn your portfolio into your personal wish list, rather than showing what you’ve shot in the past. The moment you know what you want and where your niche is, the projects, genres and filmmakers you should get in touch with will become clear.

If you say now: Stop! Showreel = wish list?

I want to know more about that right away! Then take the shortcut: Shoot a Sample. Otherwise, you can delve a little deeper into the art of strategic thinking here.

It’s worth thinking about,

what artistic ideas you want to inspire casting directors with! I have developed two concepts for battle plans, depending on where you are in your acting life:

No 1: "Brand it, baby!

The widespread concept of positioning yourself in such a way that you could be cast for anything and therefore, to be on the safe side, show EVERYTHING you’ve done so far is well-intentioned, but dilutes your brand! Primark vs Boutique.

What you need is a selection that specializes in your uniqueness so that you can be remembered!

Or in Austin Kleon’s words: “It’s not enough to be good. In order to be found, you have to be findable.”

THIS COURSE IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF
