Why do you WANT to take it personally?

Hopefully the title…really got your attention. And hopefully it got your attention for the right reasons. Now I’m not assuming, nor presuming that you do WANT to take it personally but with all due respect, in general, to the humans within my actor community…after over 25 years in this crazy business…it do think that it […]

Apple: Commercial “skipping” TV controls! Hello!

YEAH…it is gonna happen. Take note of my recent blog about the “end of free TV.” This is just another example of WHY we’re headed in that direction…and in some ways headed to the way the Masters golf tournament and the way the World Cup soccer event has funded itself for years and years. The […]

Neilsen Ratings: Coming to mobile device near YOU!

Well, it took over 10 years, but you knew this day would come. Since the dawn of television its meal ticket is advertising. You certainly could always say that the existence of TV is really due to the use of toothpaste and laundry soap. But since the 21st century erupted with digital technology, the content […]

Silence: Seriously not a form of communication!

Ok…wait, silence is a form of communication. I mean sure, we all realize that sometimes it isn’t what you DO in life…what you DON’T do…speaks volumes. Yeah, so I get that, but my point about silence is that it really is NOT a form of communication and never will be. What silence does, between ALL […]

SCAMS: Fact or perception?

Alright alright, let’s go ahead and get this answer out of the way. Are there scams in life? Sure. Are there, have their been and are there scams today in Hollywood? Sure, probably, most likely and yes. But ultimately the question for me, with regards to this particular subject, is “what defines a scam…really” in […]

Information: The value of blinders!

Huh? What? Kevin…what the hell are you talking about? Blinders? Yes, blinders for actors, because in so many ways we are our worst enemy. Why? Because again this profession has so little structure as it pertains to “direction, focus, choice and purpose.” The reality for us is a phrase I’ve used for years and it’s […]

F.E.A.R.: The long term damage…

Yes, it is true, we all have it…FEAR. Sure you can break it down as “False Evidence Appearing Real” or you can choose the other one “F**k Everything And Run” but either way it is there…in all humans. However, when it comes to being an actor I would say there there is a much higher […]

Submission INSANITY!

I mean…seriously…I can’t handle it man. Where have we come to at this point in digital technology. Are 9-year olds now posting New Media, Ultra-Low Budget & student films too? At this point I’m trying to calculate between the Legit breakdowns, LA Casting, BackStage, NowCasting, ActorsAccess, Universities and Non-union stuff exactly

Why are you in L.A.?

Wait, don’t think this post ONLY applies to you if you’re actually physically NOT in L.A. 🙂 If you grew up 100 miles from London, but are now IN London as an actor or you’re from Perth and you’ve moved all the way to Sydney and/or any other tiny small area but you’ve chosen to […]

Your Brand? Uh…ok!

So let us take a brief look at these two definitions: 1. a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name. “a new brand of detergent” 2. an identifying mark burned on livestock or criminals or slaves with a branding iron. Now obviously actors ARE indeed their own CEO, and this is indeed […]
