The Ultimate Guide to Being Discovered on Flairbox
After a whole year of talking to as many agents, casting directors, actors, producers and anyone else we could, Flairbox is LIVE. So to celebrate, we've compiled all of the advice and tips we've received into one, ultimate guide to being seen by the right people on Flairbox. Get your scenes uploaded and start rehearsing your curtain calls because the stage is open for you.
Consistency is key - post once a month if you can to keep showing as much of your range as possible. You never know which casting director will see you as a role you didn't think you'd tick the box for until you give the right performance for it. Watching other actors on the platform is also the perfect way to find inspiration for scenes that may end up being perfect for you. Remember everyone on the community is there to support each other in a tough industry.
Individual scenes - Although showreels are great, it's much easier for a casting director to match you to a role if they can clearly see separate scenes in the genre they're looking for. You have ten, three minute scenes to show how brilliant you are
Description - make it perfectly clear what the scene contains, particularly genre and tone. Again this makes it as easy as possible for casting directors to find exactly what they're looking for.
Set-up - You don't need a professional set up to film a show-stopping scene, as simple as it sounds, good lighting, a steady camera on a tripod and a great scene will let you create wonderful scenes from anywhere you like. Check out our guide to the perfect self tape here.
Support your fellow actors - Flairbox is a community that's been created for actors to support and encourage each other. By watching and clapping other actors scenes, you can support great work and find inspiration for your own scenes in the same breath. Plus, people will do the same for you and what's better than a standing ovation for your work?!
We cannot wait to see your wonderful scenes on Flairbox. Remember that it really is built specifically for actors, by actors, so if you ever have any questions or need help with anything at all, please do drop us an email email@example.com, or contact us on Twitter or Instagram.
