GTJ Podcast #5: Professional Headshots & Technology

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Ahhh yes…pictures.  One of the more commonly understood realities and requirements of being a professional actor.  The problem is, it really isn’t understood…at all.  As a matter of fact since the entire “legit” aspect of acting went to color, and digital has become the standard along with web portals, online casting sites, jpg/tif files and many other issues.  This is in conjunction with the simple difficulty of the process of choosing a great photographer.  Once you finish listening, you’ll not want to miss any in the future.

GTJ Podcast #2: Research and Commitment

Saturday, December 1st, 2007

Now Carolyne and Kevin get rolling into the truth and reality of the initial decisions you make once you’ve arrived in Hollywood. A lot of these decisions have to do with who you study with, and why, listening to who and why, as well as realizing that the challenges of the city are simply a reality for everyone. If you let it get to you, or allow it to control too many of your decisions, then you are by definition… cutting yourself short… of what a real career could be.

GTJ Podcast #1: The Evolution of Mistakes

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

The first installment of the GTJ podcast series focuses on two main aspects. First, we introduce our two authors Carolyne Barry and Kevin E. West. We want you to get a sense of who they are, how they came to be a team, and the evolution of this CD product… as a project. The first subject our two esteemed authors cover relate to the common mistakes that actors make upon arriving in Los Angeles.
