Headshot Tips From C & J Casting

By July 22, 2019 No Comments
  • WHAT SHOULD MY HEADSHOT LOOK LIKE?
    • For Commercials your headshot should be friendly, smiles are a nice way to say “I can sell your product”.
    • For Film your headshot should be more dramatic/serious, more like the characters you would be asked to play.
    • Your primary photo should be a close up, but it is also great to have additional photos on your actors info page that a 3/4 to full body.
    • Everything is about the eyes in a headshot
    • Whether it is landscape or portrait is all personal preference of the Casting Director
    • Ultimately, your agent will have the most say on how they would like your headshot to look, so if you have an agent make sure to consult them first.

  • HOW SHOULD I PREPARE MY HEADSHOT FOR A CALLBACK?
    • Your headshot should be current and we should be able to tell it is you from the picture. We prefer your name be on the front of your headshot and your resume attached to the back. If you do not currently look like your headshot (hair color or style change) please attach a current photo to your headshot.

  • DO I NEED TO BRING HEADSHOTS TO AUDITIONS?
    • You should always have headshots available, most of the time we do not need headshots for the initial round of commercial casting. However for callbacks, clients will always want a headshot and resume.
    • For Film we always want a headshot, whether it is the initial round or a callback.
