Acting and Modeling Insider Tips
Secrets and ideas that will jump start
your acting and modeling career.
Use our preprinted
casting director labels to reach talent
agents, casting directors and producers directly.
Write a short cover letter
telling them about yourself. Be creative
and professional in your approach.
Include your contact number on everything.
Be Polite. They got your package
in the mail. If they need your type, they will
call you. If not, they might like your type next
The more mailings you send out the better your chances. Talent and Casting Agents come and go frequently. You need to keep your name out there and often.
Always, always use a legitimate
agency. Get the up-to-date talent agent
list at showbizltd.com if
you are planning on doing acting, modeling, directing or
these are the only talent agents you should use.
Do your homework. Millions of
people are trying to break into showbiz. Be professional
and stay ahead of the competition. You need to know
who the executives are that are currently working
on a project. All of our listings consist of working
professionals. If they currently are not working,
they are not on our lists. That way you can save
time and money.
Study, practice and
study some more. Take classes and
workshops. When you get that audition for that
dream role, you will need the talent to
back it up. Never stop learning and improving.
Don’t be afraid to start
small. If you are planning on becoming a star
and make your living as actor or model: learn your
craft by taking smaller roles, doing plays, fashion
print work and commercial print
and of course TV commercials. All are great things
that will give you experience, skills, and credits
and pay great money.
Be a big fish in a small
pond. You don’t have to be in LA or NY to
be successful. Get a local licensed talent agency
from our agents list and build your resume and experience locally before hitting NY or LA
They teach you how to audition,
work with talent
agents, negotiate, act, work on a film set,
and bring you income. One national commercial can
pay you over $100,000 over two years. If you or
your children are really serious get one of our
Kits. These kits have everything you need
for success in one box.
HINT: Get jobs on your own by mailing directly to Casting Directors and Producers/Production Companies using SHOWBIZLTD mailing labels. You will be surprised at how few people think of this.

They are licensed by the state and uphold all
union rules and state laws.

agent works for you and you work

willing, but you don’t have the time to
commit, do not get involved.

by reading all contracts and documents thoroughly
and familiarizing yourself with special regulation
