#EK – Actors, are they showing you the money (Or Not)?

Written By Kipley

http://www.actorslife.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/18th-century-man-counting-m.jpg

Especially at the beginning of your career, it’s important to take any opportunity to act.

Now, of course there are exceptions to this rule. We don’t recommend doing “adult” entertainment as a way to build an acting career, and you may come across some truly horrible people that are simply not worth working with.

However, refusing a good opportunity simply because it doesn’t pay can be a mistake, even for more established actors who have begun to make their living as actors.

If you think unpaid acting is “below you”, consider the following two examples:

Becca and John Lloyd

Over the past several years, I have met and interviewed many actors. Most of them are working professionals, people who are making their living as actors.

Two of these actors are Becca Ayers and John Lloyd Young. I bring them up because they’re both now Broadway actors.

John Lloyd won the Tony for “Best Actor” for his work in Jersey Boys. Becca has appeared in several Broadway shows including a role as “Kate Monster” in Avenue Q , as well as roles in Les Mis, Dracula, and more.

When I interviewed both of them, they were performing together in a small, out of the way, fringe venue down in Greenwich Village. This was a “showcase” type production of a new script, and it was not a paying gig.

Now, big whoop, right? We’ve all done these types of gigs as we built our careers. But what I think is noteworthy is the fact that both Becca and John Lloyd were already making their living as actors!

Both were in Equity and performing high-profile local and regional gigs. Both were “in demand” and could have refused to do the showcase work for free.

But these two actors are smart… they’re always thinking about their next gig. And this aggressive approach to work (“always be in something”) is what moved them quickly up the showbiz food chain.

What’s Next?

The thrill of landing your first paid gig is unmatched. Finally, you’re doing what you love AND getting paid!

Relish this moment, but don’t lose yourself because, as we all know… no gig lasts forever. Within a few days, weeks, or months, you’ll be back out there looking for work again.

You can, however, take steps to simultaneously…

  • increase your “visibility”
  • expand your network of friends and contacts
  • improve your acting skills.

Crucial among these steps is getting involved in workshop and showcase productions, which typically do not pay a salary. They can, however, pay huge dividends down the road!

For example, a while back Becca was involved in a workshop production of a new musical by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx… who, incidentally, went on to create Avenue Q. Which, incidentally, Becca was eventually cast in. Coincidence? Ummm… no.

In an earlier article I mentioned Richard Speight, Jr., who was involved in a student film whose creator went on to write the CBS show, Jericho… On which, incidentally, Richard had a recurring role. Coincidence? Ummm… no.

It’s Who You Know…

Okay, look… I don’t believe that old adage, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” I find it insulting when people write off years of training and experience, reducing all acting success to the notion that simply knowing the right person is all you need to do.

HOWEVER… I do believe that BOTH statements are true.

It’s what you know AND who you know!

As a producer and director, I definitely prefer to work with people I know. If an actor is great to work with and supportive of something I’ve done, yes… I’m definitely going to bring that actor in on future projects.

For example, when writing a new script, I will often have a “reading” of the script using a bunch of actors who do the reading for free. These are casual events intended just to hear the dialogue and get feedback, but at the same time, it’s also a sort of audition for when the script is finally done and going into production.

I do know a few actors who (to some degree) make their living at it and now flat out refuse to do unpaid work. Some feel that working for free cheapens the value of their skill, and some simply cannot afford to work for free.

It is my opinion, however, that these actors are missing out on even greater opportunities by refusing to get involved in the many, many new and exciting projects being created.

They’re missing out on great networking opportunities, they’re missing out on the chance to improve their acting skills, they’re missing out on an excuse to do some self-promotion (“Come see my show!”).

Perhaps the saddest result of refusing this type of work is that these actors are cut off from the vital creative energy that comes from a group of artists working together.

In the end, isn’t that why we do this?

Yes, there are definitely some jobs I myself would refuse. There are some people I would never work with again, and some situations are simply not worth the hassle.

Additionally, if you’re in the unions, you are strictly forbidden from doing non-union work. This doesn’t mean, however, that you cannot do unpaid work. It simply means that the producer has to have an agreement with the appropriate union (SAG, AFTRA, EQUITY) and meet certain conditions.

But as a general rule, the only reason to refuse acting work is because you’re already booked on another gig.

As John Lloyd says…

Always be in something, even if it’s a showcase that doesn’t pay you anything. Even if it’s bad! You don’t have to invite anyone… you can send them a postcard the day before it closes just to tell them you were in it.

They see your picture, they see your postcard, they know you’re working on something. It’s an excuse to be in someone’s face.

#EK – The Nation votes, Nairobi CBD takes a nap!

Kenya is at the brink of ushering a new era today, as millions of its passionate, proud citizens turned out at their respective polling stations to vote for this great nation. I was on duty in the newsroom (Capital FM) and at lunch break I grabbed a camera and walked about town and captured the RAW emptiness of Nairobi’s CBD (Central Business District) as Nairobian’s voted, this great vibrant NAIROBI city took a break. From everywhere i stood the CBD and some of its environs looked liked a gentle giant taking a nap before the masses returned to continue the journey to prosperity.

Shhssssh! (the giant sleeps).

Enjoy

Eddy.

#EK – Oscar Pistorius – Nothing could predict such a tragedy

By Gianni Merlo, AIPS President, La Gazzetta dello Sport

Oscar+Pistorius+Blade+Runner+(2)

MILAN, February 15, 2013 – How can Oscar, the friend who transmitted his joie de vivre to me, have become an alleged murderer? This is the question that torments me. The news came at dawn and it seemed the stuff of nightmares to me; the sort that bring your heart to your mouth before the sudden awakening. At that time, they were still four shots in the dark in the world of a different Oscar.

In 2008, just before the Beijing Olympics, when we wrote the story of his life together (and I have to admit that he is able to write very well), I met a young enthusiast who believed in the values of life. I was with him in Pretoria for three weeks. Up to then, his life had certainly not been easy, but he’d always faced it without complexes or fears. He never looked for an excuse. He had an elegant, blonde girlfriend from a good family. He maintained that women had always played a fundamental role in his life. He was very close to his mother before her untimely death and, at that time, he was also close to his sister Aimée. There really wasn’t anything that could predict such a tragedy as this. I defined him “a magnificent savage” because he had all the defects that were then the virtues of a young man of 20 years of age.

And when he came to Italy, he conquered it with his simplicity. One evening in Milan, we went to dinner with founder of the Italian fashion label Ottavio Missoni (himself an accomplished athlete in his youth), and Candido Cannavò, the former director of our newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport who had the newspaper’s iconic pink running through his veins, who immediately adopted Oscar and defended him in all circumstances, having him become the banner of a cultural revolution in the world of disability. Our newspaper launched a real campaign to allow him to follow the dream of his life.

Oscar has always said he’s normal and never felt disabled. He has helped many to understand how to deal with certain situations. He trained for a long time at Grosseto, and then more recently he went to Gemona, but he never revealed imbalances or flashes of sudden, blind rage.

The only news of behaviour that was a bit unusual came from South Africa when he was arrested for common assault at a party but was released after a night in jail with no charges. He was also in the headlines when a horrific speedboat crash left him seriously injured after being launched into the air when the boat hit a submerged jetty.

At the time he said he was rushing into the night to leave a horde of drunken, coarse friends behind.

Arms and violence are a part of daily life in South Africa. I haven’t seen Oscar for a long time and perhaps fame has faded the friendships of the era of the positive evolution. Someone told me that he’d changed in the last year. We helped him to rise quickly and now I have a doubt. Have we unwittingly cultivated a monster?

#EK – How to Get a Job Without Experience

BY LARRY STYBEL

You know the Catch-22: “You can’t get a job without experience, and you can’t get experience without a job.”

Young job seekers have always faced this dilemma. In today’s shrinking job market, people with years of experience also struggle with it. Whether they face the reality of a layoff, or merely the threat of one, many older workers are trying to reinvent themselves in order to become marketable in a changed economy.

Whether you’re launching your career or trying to change its direction, you can get around this Catch-22 with some creativity and humility.

Here’s how I did it:

I was a clinical psychologist in a community mental health center. It was professionally satisfying and financially unrewarding. I decided it was time to make more money. I would become a business consultant.

Imagine my surprise to learn that I could not find a single company eager to hire me. Apparently, they couldn’t see that my ability to counsel sexual offenders was a transferable skill!

I couldn’t get business experience without getting hired. I couldn’t get hired without business experience. What to do?

At a party, I met Dr. Charles Daily, an organizational psychologist and entrepreneur. Dr. Daily was trying to market a new product to help companies make better hiring decisions. He had a good idea and no money to hire someone to help him realize it.

I said to Dr. Daily, “I’ll do telemarketing cold calls for your new product. But I insist on being paid. The first payment will be a title appropriate to the job I will be doing – say, ‘Business Development Associate.'” The second payment, if I fulfill my end of the deal, will be a good reference and introductions to colleagues who might be able to help me.”

For the next two months, two days a week, I did my best to help Dr. Daily get traction for his new service. I made hundreds of calls – hating every one of them. I ultimately was able to set up two in-person appointments for Dr. Daily.

Neither of those led to new business. But Dr. Daily said my job had been to open doors; it was his job to close deals. I’d performed well and would get paid, in the form of introductions to some business associates. Those introductions, along with a resume that included my new title, eventually led to a job with a talent management-consulting firm.

How can you use such a strategy to get out of the no-win loop that circumscribes your professional growth?

Look for a company with a great idea and no money to execute it. Then:

Be specific about what value you will provide. I wanted experience in the sales and marketing of professional services. I said I would make phone calls and get appointments for Dr. Daily. I didn’t say I would generate sales because I didn’t think I could do that.

Be specific about what value you will receive. For me, appropriate compensation was a title I could add to my resume and introductions and a reference from Dr. Daily. Compensation is about value received for value given – and you’re thinking too narrowly if you define value only in monetary terms.

Be specific about time frame. I promised to work two days a week for two months. Be sure that your commitment doesn’t preclude you from actively continuing a job search – or performing well enough to keep your present job.

What? You’re too proud to offer your services at no charge? Get over it. If you choose the right opportunity, you’ll gain industry or functional experience that has immeasurable value – and will ultimately lead to a real paycheck.

1. Briefly, what is your company’s solution, how does it work and where did your idea come from?

The mobile phone and pay-as-you go platforms have transformed the balance sheets of telcos and other utilities in emerging markets, and enabled billions of people to have access to vital services without needing to have a credit record. The flip side has been that these vital services are not available 24/7.

Very often, pay-as-you-go customers of utilities are unable to access the service because of lack of money or access to distribution points. Mo…

Hi everyone.

The 2013 Academy Awards nominations have just been announced and i was glued to a live streaming online hoping that our very own gem NAIROBI HALF LIFE that was submitted last year, would have squeezed its way on to the final five.

NHL Official Flyer

Sadly it was not called up but that’s no reason for me or you to be dissapointed.

It makes me more than happy that we got that far with NHL and the world knows that we can and will again submit a global attention catching film.

So lets not give up.

Let’s keep matching along and just do what has to be done, to one day step on that stage and receive that elusive Oscar statue guy.
