2017 is off to a roaring start!
We have chaos in Washington and piles of snow here in upstate New York. Tons of film projects are coming to our area and in the past two months, Hudson Valley Casting has already placed over 40 people in various projects.
Hudson Valley Casting and Acting Coaching with Wayne Pyle have also been working with a publisher at Hachette Audio who produces audiobooks right here in the Hudson Valley. We've booked people for fiction, non-fiction and even a fun children's book.
If your New Year's Resolution was to get more acting work, NOW is the time to take action. I have an agent and a manager and I still have to be on the lookout for opportunities and use all of the resources available to me to book work. If you don't have an agent or manager, don't despair. The work is there if you actively pursue it.
Here are some things I've found to be very helpful when looking for work. Give some of them a try and leave me a comment when you book a job!

Here in the Hudson Valley we have a plethora of opportunities to do what we love.
There are many talented actors, musicians, writers, directors, artists and filmmakers that have made the Hudson Valley their home. We have several professional theatre companies that produce consistently good work. There are film production companies that have made their homes here and and many film, television, and commercial companies that come up here to shoot. We have recording studios and sound stages. There is plenty of actor training for those who want to keep themselves in top form and we're only 80 miles, or about an hour and a half, from New York City by bus or train.
This blog, The Hudson Valley Actor, will be a place to find out what I'm up to as an actor and what is happening in the worlds of film, tv, theatre and voiceover in the Hudson Valley. I'll also share my experiences and thoughts about being an actor living and working in the Hudson Valley.
