Confession: I'm a little obsessive when it comes to researching things.
This sometime leads me down a slippery slope.
I'll begin surfing the web for a new chicken breast recipe and before I know it, it's five o'clock in the morning and I'm looking into how the ancient ancestor of the rhinoceros may have been the unicorn we know and love today. It's a problem.
However, it is awesome when it comes to acting! I've got quite a list of resources from my hours of frenzied internet research.
Without further ado, I present to you my working list of actor resources (in order of importance)
1. http://www.insideactingpodcast.com/ This podcast is awesome! Two actors interview different people in the industry each week. They are on episode 80 and the episodes are jam packed with actory goodness! Seriously, can't recommend this enought.
2. http://insidetheactorsstudioapartment.blogspot.com/ This is the blog that inspired me to start a blog. He updates daily (which I hope to do as well). He's funny, inspiring, and gets to the point. Definately check out his "Get Your Butt to LA" posts.
3. http://bbs.backstage.com/eve/forums The Backstage Messageboard is filled with people with opinions. This can be a good thing and a bad thing. Overall, it is very helpful. Search the forum for lists of top agencies, advice on headshots, etc.
4. http://www.ratemyheadshot.com/ Headshots are so flipping important. This site allows actors to submit their headshots and get rated on how effective they are. Be sure to check out the highest rated list and lowest rated list to get an idea of what's great and what's, well, terrible.
5. http://backstage.blogs.com/unscripted/ A cornicopeia of blogs from different actors.
6. www.immovingtola.com Are you moving to LA? Thinking about it? Check this site out.
