If you've been trying to break into the world of film and television, you know that it's not that easy to land a big gig - or any gig - if you don't know the right people. Well, if you live in the New York City area, you'll soon have the opportunity to get your foot in the acting door!
Free JMM New York City Casting Call
On September 8, 2004, JMM - a top talent agency in New York City - is having an open casting call for kids 4 to 18. Now, this isn't an audition for a role in a blockbuster movie but instead it's an open casting call for you to be represented by JMM. If you are chosen, you will then have a top agent who will let you know about all the latest and greatest movie and television auditions! You don't have to worry about shelling out a ton of dough for this audition either - JMM works on commission only. That means if they pick you, and they get you a job, they take a precentage of what your earn, but they don't take any cash from you until you get that job.
What Kind of Auditions Could You Get?
JMM has lined up auditions for their clients for some of the hottest film and TV spots! Some of the peeps they represent have gone on to get parts in movies like Daredevil and Spiderman 2, TV shows like Third Watch and Sesame Street and a ton of commercials for products like Nike, Jell-O and Burger King! Spencer Breslin, who played Conrad in Cat in the Hat, was represented by JMM and they used to represent Molly Shannon when she was a kid!
So Where Is the JMM Audition?
The casting call takes place on September 8, 2004 in New York City. You need to make an appointment on JMM's official site before going, so check out this info:
The event is open to kids ages 4-18 years old and is absolutely free!
JMM is located at 440 Park Avenue South (at 30th Street) - 11th Floor.
You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!
Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :)
You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them? Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.
Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends.
If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.
