From Casey, WI:
What Should I Place On My Resume?
I do have a few suggestions. In my book How to Become a Successful Commercial Model, I have a sample resume that you can use as a guide.
The most important part of your resume is to be honest with your credits. You can list productions you did, even if it was years ago. As long as you really were in it, then list it.
If you were taking a class and did a scene study, then list it as a scene study. That way people know you have studied, and they will also know what you have studied.
If you decide to list extra work on your resume, make sure you let people know it was extra work. Don’t try and fool others by making it seem like you really were a “day player” when you were only an extra.
Don’t list anything that has to do with modeling or pageants. Also, if you have some interesting special skills, make sure they are listed.
Just remember, it takes time to build a strong resume. People don’t get cast because of their resume. The resume gives more information for casting to see, but your look and audition is what gets you the part.
