Dear actor friends, if you still don’t have a slateshot attached to each of your headshots in Actors Access, you’re missing out.
Breakdown Services have been talking about the benefits of SlateShots℠ for a while. What most actors seem to overlook is that “submissions with SlateShots℠ are displayed ahead of submissions without SlateShots℠.” To make it clear: if you have a slateshot attached to the headshot submitted for that role, your headshot will show on the top of the page. Capisce?
Here is the main thing you need to keep in mind: it’s basically a moving version of your headshot. So it’s a good idea to keep the same vibe, maybe even the same wardrobe, as the headshot it’s attached to. And the best time to get your slate shots is exactly when you’re doing your headshots. Everything that applies to headshots also applies to slateshots. We want to see your eyes, see your face. Have good lighting and avoid busy backgrounds. On top of that, you have sound. The talkies! Make sure you have good sound quality and keep your text clean and simple.
And let me know if you want to add a slateshot to your headshot session!

Hello! I’m looking to just shoot a few slate shots–my agent is very happy with my headshots but is insistent I get some slate shots up. Is that a service you provide?
