How does an actor get discovered? There’s always that (extremely rare) chance that you’ll be eating at your favorite restaurant and, just as you’re about to sink your teeth into a grilled vegetable salad, a big-time agent will interrupt your meal with an A-list offer. Wouldn’t that be miraculous? Unfortunately, yes–it probably does take a miracle. But given the fact that people actually do get discovered and do sustain worthwhile acting careers, the real question is: What’s an aspiring actor to do to get noticed? If you’re like most people, well, you’ve got to prepare to be discovered of course. It’s all about numbers: How many things do you have going for you at any given time? Personality? Check! Authenticity? Check! Talent? Your Look? Training? Check-Check-Check! It seems you have your acting resources all tended to like a perfectly groomed garden.

But there’s something else that can help get your foot in the door of the industry right away, and Casting Frontier is here to assist you now!

Your Casting Frontier profile can get you in the right place at the right time. That is, a casting director looking to fill a spot with an actor exhibiting a specific skill can immediately find talent using a sophisticated search engine. But only you can make sure your skills are listed in that data search!

Here’s what you need to do to get noticed for your unique skills–no matter what level of skill you currently display: Populate your Special Skills “wizard” in your Casting Frontier profile. The more skills you have listed, the more likely you will get an audition.

And, as an added incentive, Casting Frontier is offering a 15% discount on a yearly Premium profile (limited time $42.50) and yearly Premium Plus profile (limited time $59.50) as soon as you have filled out your special skills.* And just by filling out your special skills wizard, you can call (323) 300-6129 Mon. – Fri. 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. PST to be entered into a raffle. Prizes include: a Premium or Premium Plus upgrade, two free Dodger tickets, and a free photo shoot (3 looks) at our state-of-the-art digital photo studio. This offer will expire June 15, 2013.

Remember, not everyone can speak Portuguese or restore vintage cars or play Ping-Pong at a semi-pro level. And not everyone has won numerous chess tournaments or blows away the competition on karaoke night…and the list goes on. So fill out your Special Skill sheet today! If you do the work and prepare, your chances of getting discovered go way up!
