Monday Madness

Methods in the Madness…11.25.14

Thanksgiving scheduling note: Tim and Vince are both out this week so no taping at Houghton (sorry.)  Becca is kind enough to cover Tim’s desk from LA so feel free to email us as normal but cc her w/ anything you need.  We will be closed Thurs-Fri, Nov 27-28.  My cell is 404-931-5719, pls save that number so you can reach us any time after hours.  I’d just ask you to only text or call (text preferred) if something is urgent and cannot wait until normal office hours.    

Now…Welcome to this week’s Methods in the Madness (information we frequently answer, or wish talent knew/would do/wouldn’t do…)

HELP US HELP YOU TIP #20 –  Whenever you update your headshot or resume, it’s not critical but you can send a copy to Tim so we can access easily when it’s requested (often upon booking to add to a production book, or when you’re among just a few candidates in consideration.)  Save the files as:  LastnameFirstname.Resume,and LastnameFirstname.HS

YOU CAN’T KNOW TIL YOU KNOW TIP #20 – With more union commercial work here this year than last, we hope this promises a big 2015.  Here’s a great video explaining the timeline on commercial payments through SAG:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhhirKGl5b4

NEWSY BIT – We all know this but I was reminded just yesterday about how ratings are important for the success of SE shows, and that means watching within seven days of the initial airing.  So many shows in the SE – some taking a break during the holidays – Constantine, Red Band Society, Resurrection, Sleepy Hollow, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, The Walking Dead, just to name a few….

ONE WARM COAT DRIVE date is extended through December 5th
