UPDATE: Breakdown Services Guest Speaker at the Network Austin Mixer


We here at Breakdown Services were very grateful to be the invited guest speaker at the Network Austin Mixer this past Wednesday.  Over fifty local entertainment industry members attended the event and it was a great opportunity for us to hear their questions and more about their perspectives as actors and filmmakers in the Texas market.  Jason Teresi, Director of Regional Services, and Ellen Lloyd, our local Austin representative, spoke about how to build your Actors Access profiles and submissions, including tips on standout headshots, pertinent performance clips to the project, and professional Slateshots.  They also provided a behind the curtain peek at what the casting directors see when viewing submissions and how actors can really make themselves stand apart from the crowd.  They even had time to answer some audience Q & A about everything from good hair lengths and what age is the most marketable.  A huge thank you to Donise Hardy, CSA and Gary L. Wimmer for inviting us and we look forward to our next time in Austin!
