`Where do I get my acting agent?’ This is a common question which you must have encountered either from a friend or probably you asked yourself when you were getting into the show business. Acting is a competitive business where only the best survives the competition. While it is possible to land some gigs on your own and make some money, it can be challenging to get the high flying tasks in the critical market. That makes it essential for you to seek the services of agents. Here are some tips that will help you get services of my acting agent in the U.S.

1. Obtain the dir
ectory with the listing of all the listing off agents in your local area. The directories normally have the list f all the agents operation in the US. Important information you can get from the directory include phone numbers, names, mailing and other pertinent information of the agencies. There are some directories that would even categorize agents depending on the particular niche they specify in. The information in the directories is updated on monthly basis hence it is 100% accurate. You can expect to find contacts of my acting agent in the US in these directories.

2. Draft a letter and send it to my acting agent. The mail should include your resume, photos and a cover letter explaining to the agent why you believe you will be a worthy investment for the company. The photos and resume should speak for you. In case my agent will be interested in the package you will send them, they will call you back and fix an appointment.

3. If my acting agent does not respond to any of the mailings you will send, ensure to make a follow up using a postcard. Have a brief explanation on the post card that you are following on the mail you had sent earlier. Many of the agents are receiving a lot of letters on daily basis and hence it would be no surprise that the agent might have forgotten to respond your mail. Include your contacts at the back of the postcard you are sending them so that they can contact you if they wish.

4. If the agent will be impressed by your talent, they will contact you and fix a meeting. You should be prepared to have an audition. My acting agent in the US will sometimes ask you to make a certain kind of performance. They can give you a monologue which you are supposed to learn by heart and present it in front of them. Similarly, they can just request you to make any presentation to gauge your competence. Don’t freak out, just be confident and do some presentation. You can prepare yourself earlier through learning a monologue in advance.

5. My acting agent often scouts the theater for talent. A lot of actors have been spotted when acting the theater. Perform as often as possible in the shows held in national and local theaters. There are chances my agent will note your talent in one of your performances and request to represent you.
