Before submitting or showing up to an open call, make a list of everything you could need for both. There is nothing more frustrating than sitting down to send out your submissions only to find that you don’t have what they’re asking for. Open calls will also require specific materials or dress codes, so make sure you know what they’d like to see before you arrive. Oftentimes, one of those things will be a portfolio or a “comp card” (composite card, also referred to as a “zed card”).

Follow up. 
People get busy, especially agents. So don’t be surprised or discouraged if you don’t hear back right away. After a decent amount of time, it’s completely appropriate to reach out and thank them for meeting you and ask for an update. Asking for feedback is another nice way to remind them of you. This gives you the opportunity to prove you can take constructive criticism and has the added bonus of arming you with tips to help you sharpen your skills for the future, even if it isn’t with the same agency.


Thanks for submitting!
