Monday Myth Debunkers: Having IMDB Credits Other Than Acting…

Have you ever had this thought or heard someone say it before?⁠

We’ve been surprised to hear how many actors are concerned about this.⁠

The very cool thing about our industry (other than creating intricate worlds and complex characters), is that a lot of us are multihyphenates.⁠

How many times have you been introduced to someone who is an actor-director-writer-producer? Throw yoga instructor in there and now you’re really in LA 😉⁠

Point is, this is a normal part of our industry. ⁠

Many of us have bounced around or dabbled in different creative roles and not only is that acceptable, it’s encouraged!⁠

Taking acting classes makes you a better director. Understanding writing makes you a better actor. ⁠

We trust that when you get an audition, in that moment, acting takes the priority. ⁠

Other than that? 𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪.⁠

Write a short. Direct a play. Produce a web series. ⁠

These things will actually 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱 you in your acting career. ⁠

Trust that we aware of how our industry flows and that we do not need you to focus solely on one thing to believe you are a capable, dedicated actor. ⁠
