About the Book
Lights, Camera, Action! is a "how to" book for all actors trying to break into the movie industry from a casting directors point of view. This type of book is essential for all upcoming actors, learning the do’s and don’ts of the trade. There are many ‘how to’ acting books in the book stores at the moment, however, there are none from a casting director’s point of view. One might consider it an: Extra Work for Dummies book. My book offers valuable advice on how to get work from casting directors from a casting director. Here are just a few issues addressed:

* How to register with New York City casting companies
* Where to start looking for work in New York City
* What casting directors look for in headshots
*Screen Actors Guild actors vs. Non Screen Actors Guild actors
*The ‘look’ behind background casting
* The process that goes into background casting
