BreakThrough Tip of the Day

Cleaning up our database is always a bittersweet event.  Bitter because cleanup is a time consuming chore and sweet because streamlined organization is rewardingly sexy.  Sadly, a large number of talent files without names are still being deleted.

This year, strive to stay in our database by LABELING ALL YOUR FILES (INCLUDING MEDIA LINKS) with your:

-FULL NAME (so we can put a name to your face)

AND

-CELL # (so we can contact you right away)

 

Organization is SEXY!  Have an incredible 2015  and HAPPY BOOKINGS!

BreakThrough scouts talent at Simon Studios, NYC

A warm thank you to the wonderfully talented Roger Simon of Simon Studios for inviting BreakThrough to last Wednesday’s On-Camera Professional Lab Series celebrating Tennessee Williams’ 103rd birthday, with special guest, Tony LoBianco.  I not only was able to witness fine, dedicated talent hard at work but also had the opportunity to warm up with the actors- so much fun!
