Create Projects Yourself

To all the actors and writers out there, you have to get over the idea that someone else is going to promote you. This is an old school Hollywood relic of an idea that has to go. It's time to find your own audience and connect with them directly.
You are the only one who owns your brand and you are the only one who can make real connections with it. This isn't an easy idea to fully embrace. We are ingrained with the arcane and stupid idea that we just need to be discovered or seen by the right people and our careers will suddenly be awakened. Get that load of crap out of your heads right now

(from tubefilter.tv). Some of my ideas about making a web series are on my blog Details.

comments: Wow David, you really hit it on the head.

We see actors taking responsibility for their own career in certain areas but the vast majority has bought the idea of being discovered.

The biggest start produce their own movies.

Standup comedians writer their own material.

The original Greek playwrights were also the ones who acted out their work.

And with the internet there is no better time than now.

Instead of JUST waiting for opportunities use some of that time to learn crafts that can help you create projects.
