Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking. Maybe I'll just edit it........Thanks

Ian I think it's best to check with the individual site management. I believe that Brad who runs this site will not allow anything that is not G rated or would not be child friendly?  At least that was the last that I heard a few years ago when I joined.

Perhaps you could have the potentially offensive language beeped out?

Question, I recently did an audition and have the "Tape". The audition contains some strong language and racial slurs. Of course, It is a good audition tape I would like to post on the sites I am involved with. Any thoughts?

I list my BG work. It's valuable experience. I am working fairly steady, if that means anything.

And congrats, Dianne.

Jerri Higgins, any work is good on a resume if that's all you got. It did say that you've worked in front of the camera. But that's all. It doesn't say that you're good or desirable as an actor, or give a casting director an idea of what you might best be cast for. BG should quickly be shed from your resume.

Fun seeing the new Foxwoods commercial I am in- I'm the one excited at the craps table  :)

Hey Jerri Higgins-  I know industry people and they all say do NOT put BG work on your resume. Sure it is valuable when you are starting out, to watch and learn what to do and not do 'on set'. If you don't have anything else, it is more valuable to do a few student films. Hope this helps :)

Has anyone heard anything about an app called kaypr? They claim to be a new, free casting service.

It was suggested that I shouldn't credit background work on my actor resume, but I feel like I get a lot out of those shoots.  I watch what principal actors are doing, paying attention to their process; I take direction seriously and do as the director asks.  We make note of our marks, often having to start back at 1.  I think extra work is valuable and should be on a resume.  

Your thoughts on the subject are appreciated.
