Answers:

Getting an agent is the best way as they have access to all the casting breakdowns. Aside from that, there is some stuff on various casting sites, but not much of is is very good.

Congrats on your commercial. If you're serious about wanting to act professionally, then understand that it's show BUSINESS and not a lottery or some talent TV show. Companies are not searching for someone to take off the streets and mold into a star or anything. You want more work start with quality training from respected instructors. Not only will it help you improve your skills, but it's how you network and start to make industry connections. If you can impress an acting teacher (or someone else in the industry) they may be willing to refer you to an agent. So look into acting classes to start.

Learn the business. There are a lot of scams and rip offs that prey on people who mistakenly think they'll be "discovered" and given an acting career. You'll need to understand things like the casting process (agents, casting directors, breakdowns); legal issues (contracts, unions, taxes, if you're a minor there are additional legal restrictions and requirements); marketing (head shots, resumes, show reel, web site, social media); and networking. For a professional acting career you're basically starting and running your own company where you are the product to me marketed and sold. So we're talking a huge investment of time, effort and money with no guarantee that you'll ever "make it". backstage.com has helpful articles (https://www.backstage.com/advice-for-act... ) also Brian O'Neil has a book about the business end of acting that you might find helpful. If you just want to work on commercials here's "How to Get Cast in a Commercial" - https://www.backstage.com/backstage-guid...

You'll also need experience and most actors start with some stage work (like community theater) and things like student films and other low-to-no pay jobs that actors take for experience. Websites like Backstage, Actors Access, Casting Networks and Now Casting often list casting calls. Usually how it works is someone lists their project with information on where you submit your information. Then you send them your head shot and resume listing your acting training, experience and special skills and links to a show reel if you have one. Then if their interested, they'll contact you about auditioning. Understand that there is usually a fee to these websites in order to access the casting calls or maybe to submit to roles. But these are the websites that are usually used by actual director (even student directors and independent film directors) - there are a lot of other websites that are not as good, so do be careful where you look.

For most professional work (things like TV shows, movies, and union commercials) you'll need an agent. That's because casting directors for those productions don't list their casting calls (also called "breakdowns") on general websites. They make them available just to agents who review them and submit actors for roles. But frankly, don't worry about getting an agent until you actually understand the business end of things. There's nothing special about getting "an agent" - you need one that can actually help you reach your career goals.

So go find some quality acting classes and start to learn the realities of an acting career. Good luck!

By getting an agent, and auditioning more.

Hello Elmer,

Get yourself and agent and keep attending casting sessions.
