Breakdown Services started as a favor for his talent agent mother over 40 years ago and has become an industry standard for Hollywood productions today. As Breakdown’s founder, Gary Marsh has seen and affected a lot of changes in how casting is done and the way actors are submitted on projects over the last four decades. From paper submissions being delivered by currier to electronic submissions for projects in other countries his company has always been on the leading edge of the casting world. Now, the next step in the evolution of casting and actor related submissions is here with introduction of the Slate Shot. It’s essentially a moving headshot that allows casting to hear the actor’s voice, see them without retouching, and get a feel of the essence of an actor in a quick 7 second video. I got a chance to sit down and talk to Gary about how Breakdown Service and Actor Access started and how Slate Shot is changing the headshot industry.
