Hi and welcome to episode 16 of PitchChris where you guys ask me questions about the entertainment business and I answer them. To ask me a question and simply find me on social media @ChrisDeBlasio #PitchChris and I will be sure to answer the questions you guys have. This first question comes from Dwayne.

So, my question is.. when you started out in the industry.. were there any directors, producers or actors who helped you out.. Are there any actors producers or directors right now who are willing to help new comers with their projects.. and if so.. how to approach them. How can you go about it? That would be my question. Thank you. Hey Dwayne Thanks for you question. Yes.. I did have a bunch of mentors when I was first starting out. What I did was… I made sure I would network with a lot of people in the industry and became friends with directors and producers…. and casting directors.. my agent connected me with certain people. So networking is the key. and the cool thing is.. I have seen that you actually sent your question in from Kentucky.. Kentucky is a smaller market then let’s say.. Atlanta, New York or LA. So you actually have a great opportunity to be a big fish in a small pond… so what I would recommend is go on social media…. Find meet up groups… find network events, specifically in the entertainment business… in Kentucky and network with those people, build a relationship, build a rapport because they are going to connect you… to jobs and paying gigs. And here is the cool thing…
