Hollywood Birds – The Actors
actor

I shot this picture of a flock of birds in Hollywood.
Then I realized the buildings of Hollywood are behind them.

I could not resist turning them into Actors on an audition.
I have a few more like this in the works.

In case you don’t know the terms:

Cattle Call is a massive audition where all sorts of actors show up. There will be a line around the block, with hundreds of people. I refuse to go to these anymore. I prefer to go on auditions where they are looking specifically for my "Type".

A "Type" is when they want a certain character. A Midwestern Mom type, A Business woman Type, A Super Model Type. Or a "Nicole Kidman" type.

"Agents" – its best to have an Agent, though they are hard to get. An Agent will send you out on the serious Union, and more professional auditions. Getting your auditions via an Agent is usually better than getting them out of Acting Newspapers.

View alittle Larger Helps you see the buildings in the background. The Capitol Records Building is on the right, Hollywood Taft Building is in the center.
