Knowing the SET RULES is SO Important!
I always seek to cast Professional Actors in all speaking and paid roles. Occasionally we may book a new actor because we see great potential in their acting ability, and their audition performance won over the Director.
Unfortunately too many times I have encountered these new actors may be very talented, Directable, and eager; but they are just too NEW to know the rules and on-set etiquette. Then that leaves them doing things they shouldn't be doing, which in turn gets me a phone call from the Director with "concerns" and bad reviews for the Actor.
This one bad review brings your "streak" to a halt. I address the issue with the actor, and if they are receptive and make an effort to attend an On-Set Etiquette class, and promise me that they will heed the words and make the necessary changes, then I will "slowly" allow them to audition for some smaller projects to prove to me that they have fixed the issue at hand.
If you have less than 3 speaking credits on your resume and you want to continue to AUDITION for speaking or paid roles in the future with Katz Kasting - you MUST READ THIS!!!!
Over the last year, I've had TOO MANY actors that I have met IN PERSON get bad reviews from set. It's disappointing, and it hurts YOU! I am doing this to HELP YOU! Because I WANT YOU TO DO GOOD. I do not WANT you to get bad Reviews! It ultimately reflects on ME!
Fortunately, This is something that you have the power to CONTROL from the beginning! (or fix)
If you are one of those Actors who have gotten the "bad review" email from me in the past, or have been a previous no-show or last minute cancellation on an extras booking, then I expect you to be in one of these classes, this will SHOW ME that you are making an effort to fix the issues. No effort, why should I risk booking you again? I won't ...
Everyone knows the rules & knows how to behave while on set, Right? You are thinking, of course, who wouldn't ?
Ask yourself these 2 questions:
1. Have you taken an ON-SET ETIQUETTE class before?
2. Have you been on set more than 3 times?
If you answered #1 with NO, then HOW CAN YOU KNOW THE RULES?
You don't just magically wake up one morning knowing the rules of being on set. You don't just automatically KNOW what we EXPECT from you when you walk on SET.
If you do NOT know the rules, then you risk breaking many of them. You are risking not only the reputation of Katz Kasting , but also YOUR FUTURE AS AN ACTOR.
Did you know that Many of the Bigger Agents (at least around here) look for On-Set Etiquette class on your resume before they will sign you? That's how important it is.
Parents of Child Actors, Speaking Roles, Non-speaking Roles, Featured Extras, Extras, Agent or no Agent. Doesn't matter. Have seen Actors who had an agent, and still didn't know how to behave on set. Makes me wonder "how the heck did they get an agent??" or makes me think twice when calling on their Agency again. Oh, and yes, I do notify your agent of all reviews. Just being honest ....
The Director ALWAYS tells gives me an update after you are on set. Good or Bad. If you are late, if you show lack of maturity and professionalism... etc. But how do you KNOW how you are suppose to act if you have never been TAUGHT? Plain and simple - YOU DON"T!
Want to audition for SPEAKING & PAID ROLES ? Taking this class ensures me that you will know how to behave as a PROFESSIONAL ON SET.
You MUST know the RULES and know what is acceptable and not-acceptable behavior while on set!
You can't just "be yourself" .... and the last thing an Actor wants is the Director to call me and say "X must be new.. because .... " or "I hate to say this, but we have some concerns with X" or "we are going to need to replace X"
It's been a while since I have done this class, so I have put one together for next week. I've got a very busy June/July with several projects coming up this summer, and I am going to be VERY SELECTIVE from this point on when inviting ACTORS to audition.
You are a reflection of Katz Kasting and I must ensure that you are projecting a positive image everytime you walk on that set in whatever capacity.
