Monday Myth Debunkers – The Market is too Saturated with my Type.

Acting is an art, no doubt. But it’s also a business. ⁠

And if there’s one thing successful businessmen and women want you to know; it’s that there’s no such thing as an overly saturated market, especially when the “demand” is so high. ⁠

And the demand is high. ⁠

Even now. Even during a pandemic. Even as productions just start to go back. ⁠

We are looking for you. ⁠


You, the actor, who just had a breakthrough in acting class.⁠

You, the actor, who just signed with an agency you’re excited about. ⁠

You, the actor, who just spend 5 hours updating your materials. ⁠

We are looking for you. ⁠

There are dozens… HUNDREDS… of roles out there waiting for you. ⁠

But a mindset of “there are too many people like me” is not the key to unlocking these roles. ⁠

This mindset does the opposite. ⁠

It keeps them locked up. And it only opens up for those who believe they are worthy of playing them. ⁠

If you’ve ever taken a business class, there’s a longstanding motif across the board:⁠

𝗙𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁’𝘀 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗼 𝗶𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿.⁠

Seems easy, right? Be the best you can be?⁠

Good news: It’s that easy. ⁠

Bad news: It’s that much work. ⁠

Want a list of 10 things you can do to stand out in a sea of aspiring actors? Sure, we can think of a few. But we don’t want you to stray too far from what matters most: ⁠

𝘉𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘣𝘦. 𝘉𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘰𝘳. 𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘢𝘭𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘸.⁠

If you keep coming back to that statement, you will see results. Guaranteed. ⁠

Before you brush it off: know there is a whole lot of subtext in that statement and a whole lot of work to be done. ⁠

But don’t let your mind fool you…⁠
