Chat With Like People
Your new website provides a unique ability to chat with others
who are seeking a career in the same area as yourself.
This allows you to compare experiences and receive advice
from others who are going down the same trail you are. You
may feel there is advice you can give from one of your recent
experiences, talking always is beneficial and is especially good
when you have a selected audience of like minded individuals.
Click on the button for “Coffee Club” and check in. You can use
your I.D. Number to keep your anonymity for these chats. In any
case if no one is on-line at the moment leave a message to just
‘contact’ you and then you will note that when someone is on-line
the ‘contact’ button on your site will light calling you to ‘the Coffee
Link With Friends
You now have a professionally designed composite site. You can
be very proud of your presentation and you would probably like to
share it with family and friends. Just note your URL (you internet
address for your site) and send it to your family and friends. They
will be able to see what you have accomplished.
By going into “Coffee Club” you can exchange ideas with others
around the world who are in the same boat you are. Sometimes it
can be a great advantage to see how others have created new ideas.
We encourage everyone who has a new idea to tell us about it. If
you have an idea how we can improve our service or add something
of value which would benefit our audience, please contact us.
We often will engage in holding contests as a means of allowing
different Talents to showcase their abilities. These contests are
normally sponsored by Community spirited entities and/or individuals
sometimes by Studio’s, TV stations, Independent Production
Companies, Recording Labels and Publishers; the rewards can vary
from cash to any other things of value.
Scholarships and Grants are offered by numerous entities all around
the world who wish to encourage those entering the ‘Arts’. We make
every effort to stay on top of these offers and make them available to
our Talents. So, whenever possible check the list of Grant Makers and
Scholarships that are presently available. From time to time we take it
upon ourselves to enter certain Talents into schemes wherein we believe
they may have either the need or the Talent which might be recognized.
Public Relations Opportunities
Everyone in the ‘Arts’ is affected by Public Relations. You either make the
effort to engage in this method of putting yourself forward or you can remain
in the closet. The entire ‘Talent Register’ site is centered around helping
you to promote your Talents……this is Public Relations! Once you have
created your site it is available worldwide and has an ability to be translated
into 10 languages. When Open Call Audition or the Talent Register is promoted in the Trade Magazines or in a particular College or University this
is promoting you! When Open Call Audition, the Talent Register or Talent-
Quest is mentioned in the Casting News; it is promoting you!
Work on offer
The goal of everyone is to secure work and this is not always easy. Once you
have created the best site possible to promote who you are, and you have
properly prepared yourself with the correct educational background, then you are ready to start looking for work. The most immediate questions are: Have
you joined a union or should you? Have you secured or are you represented
by an Agent or Agency? Do you have an Artist Manager?
If any of these questions confuse you as to what to do then the first step is to
look into your site to Talent-Quest and see if there is an answer there. Next
would be to talk to a Career Councillor at your College or University. If that doesn’t provide you with the answers it might be best to seek an Artist Manager or Agency to represent you.
Be sure you check our section on “Work on Offer”.
Pro-Active will provide you with a direct method of sending your particulars to
a selected audience. Perhaps this might make life a bit easier.
