What Are You Doing For Work As An Actor?

As crazy as it is out here right now, I’m curious as to what the working actors in Atlanta are doing to stay afloat and further your career?

Are you working a full time as an actor? Do you have a day job or side hustle on the side?

I’m just trying to keep in contact with those of you who I’ve met or have filled out the form on my website about wanting to be updated with new projects.

The past several months since Corona virus wreaked havoc on our way of life I’ve had to put all smaller personal projects on hold and focus on other aspects of my business like selling digital products for video editing and some corporate client work.

In the meantime, I’m still writing new material and about to resume post production on a short teaser trailer called Quarter Past reality 2, which is a small project I’m directing for a book author out of Virginia.

If you have a moment, leave a comment below and let me (and whoever else sees this post) know what you’ve been up to. Drop a link to some of your work if it’s posted on YouTube or Vimeo!

      That’s smart thinking man. Hopefully your Amazon business will soon be on auto pilot at some point so you can have the additional income coming in while you pursue acting. I’m working on similar things on the side as well.

    I have personally taken on the role of a handyman/house flipper, making capital improvements to both my properties, doing much of the work myself. I plan on listing one in late June or sometime in July. Frankly, I am surprised that productions placed on hold haven’t gotten back to work yet. Industry economics would demand this. I am sure smart production companies realize that the first things released this summer To an entertainment-starved public will get the most attention. From a marketing aspect, that kind of attention is practically priceless.

      Yea I agree. Production is beginning to start up again slowly but surely and with a bunch of regulations in place that may make things slower.
