I took one look at these forums, okay well maybe more than one look, and signed myself up. Hoping this is as good a place as any to say hello and seek basic advice. I'm giving up teaching in Italy at the end of May to move back to London and take up acting professionally. I trained in my youth but nothing beyond high school. I did an NYT production back then and got some high LAMDA qualifications, high school theatre and an extra gig in a major film but that isn't really much but at least it's a start right? I've already started applying for short and student film roles to fill up my CV as soon as possible, thanks to the marvel of video auditions, and I'm looking forward to theatre auditions when I get to London.
So I know I need to get excellent headshots and to join equity. Do you guys have any other good advice that you can share? I'm hoping to catch anything I've overlooked. I've got a good friend who's brother-in-law does a variety of tv and film work as a producer that she's going to introduce me to at her wedding, although I'm not expecting much at least it gets me on the road to networking.
