As an actor, you yourself are a product.  And like other businesses selling products, it matters how you present your product.  With so many mass emails and form letters drowning casting offices and agencies, buckslips allow for a more personal approach to getting in touch with your intended recipient. This simple, yet effective, addition to any mailing or gift provides another opportunity to be memorable in an elegant way.  You wouldn’t hire a sketchy accountant with his info written on a scrap of paper and you should think of your acting tools the same way.

A typical Buckslip will be about 2.5″ X 8″. The buckslip should have a picture of you and some contact info. It should also have some space where you can write a short personal message.

As actors you have one opportunity to make a first impression. It is a lot like online dating. If you send out a picture that is great but doesn't look like you, your date (casting) is gonna be disappointed. You won't get a second chance. But if you are able to capture your personality and the strongest aspects of your talents in that one frame, you'll find that there are a lot of people out there looking for someone just like you.

With over 30 years of experience in the photography and headshot business, I will keep you posted on the business of acting with an emphasis on photos.
