HEADSHOT HOMEWORK

One approach...

Theatrical:

1. Write down four shows that you should be on. (Be realistic.)

2. Watch those shows and write down the colors you see on those shows. Shows have speicifc color schemes. (Disney likes bright colors, Law & Order likes neutrals, etc.)

3. Decided which characters you'd portray on those shows.

4. Think like the show's stylist-What would you wear if you were cast as that character. (Or what would you wear to an audition for that character?)

5. Ask yourself if this look is diverse enough to work for other roles you might be right for.

6. Find those clothes and buy them! (or if you already have them, bring them!)

7. Decide what vibe that character would have, and be prepared to access that emotional vibe during our shoot.
