I have signed up as a supporting artist (formerly known as a (lowly) extra) and need to post more photos on my casting agency profile page that will get me noticed!
Why Choose a Profile Pic?
The agency says my profile pics need to include formal, sporty, business or casual choices to make sure I get put forward for the greatest range of roles.
Business or casual—what’s best?
A classic British pinstripe in dark grey squeezes into a dark back corner of my closet.
Old fashioned cut but classy, I like to think. A suit that says: This guy is serious…knows his stuff. Which was important when my Herculean efforts made no discernable impact on the world of finance.
And I have a black one, (hiding in a plastic clothes bag, sprinkled with mothballs), for the meetings I used to hate: when I had to play the gun-slinger. The tough guy… fortunately, I only wore that one occasionally.
And it’s in my favourite colour too! If the agency lets me sneak this photo in… well, with the addition of a pair of flip-flops—what better work conditions could one possibly hope for?
But I’m a writer and artist now. Nothing beats jeans (501s in blue, black or tan) and a fleece. I feel more authentic in these. In fact I always did.
Which reminds me: my denim shirt (an obligatory component in the writer’s wardrobe) is falling to bits. Time for a new one.
Business or Casual?
What do you feel most comfortable in?
Please help me choose which is best? My new career depends on it!
