Short Films


1-tim-julio3This is the area I have the most working experience in.

That experience ranges from student and experimental films to high-quality indie productions and Hollywood blockbusters, including 3D work. Tim Krueger’s IMDb.

While this is an area where you can stretch your legs more with regard to character development, depending on the production, casting still wants to find people who visually fit the part.

So know your type, own it, and make sure your marketing messaging and visuals all support that type.

 

As an example, when I started acting over a decade ago, I was surprised to learn that people often saw me as a Cop, a Dad, a Priest, and a Psychopath.

While I’m not making any social commentary on the potential overlap of those parts in real life, those were my first parts. In my mind, since I have zero personal experience in any of those areas, I would never have guessed those would be my niches, but casting people told me that they were, and while I initially resisted those labels, I eventually grew to embrace them. When I did that, I got a lot more gigs.

Know your type. Own it. Make sure you market your self appropriately and greatly increase the percentage of auditions that you turn into gigs.
