Like many industries around the world at the moment, the entertainment sector has been greatly affected by the pandemic. Many film and TV productions have shut down and the number of briefs coming through to agents has decreased significantly. That being said, there are still several jobs coming through each week and many casting agents and production companies are running auditions remotely via self-tapes, Skype and Zoom meetings etc. Like everything at the moment, there’s no way to predict what will happen in the future or when the industry will be up and running like normal again, but hopefully it will bounce back bigger and better than ever sooner rather than later!
In this edition of the TCA newsletter check out which agency members have been stepping in front of the camera, what auditions have been taking place during the pandemic and the importance of keeping your online profiles up to date. We’ll also have a look into how to film the perfect self-tape audition; a very important skill to have – especially these days!
