On this episode of #PitchChris, Why is it so important for an actor or actress to build his or her fanbase, Should you have different headshots for different roles and At what point in your career should you bring on a talent manager? Hi and Welcome to episode 20 of #PitchChris where you guys ask me questions about the entertainment business and I’m going to answer them for you. To ask me a question, find me on social media @Chris DeBlasio #PitchChris and I’ll be happy to answer all the questions you guys have. This first question comes from Keith. Let’s see what Keith has got to say. Hey Chris, Keith Kraft here. We’re on set here with my production that’s going to be Blues of Christmas, The Merry Blues of Christmas. But anyways I love your show so my question for you is as an actor I know there is publicist out there that help us promote our image once we have one but my question is how do you really get that image. I know when talking to a lot of acting instructors they’re like well you got to brand yourself first and then you know really work that image and then you can move on, kind of expand from those roles. So if there are companies out there that are really great for developing an image for actors and stuff like that that’s what I’d really like to know. You know, where do we reach out to them and stuff like that and if they have certain people they like to work with and you know the type of cost and stuff like that involved. So that’s my question to you and look forward to working with you and I’ll talk to you real soon. Thanks so much. Hey Keith, personal branding is huge for an actor, let me tell you the reason why. Because producers like myself are going to be looking for actors that have a huge following. A lot of films, most films actually are funded by A-list Talent. Well, that A-list Talent has a following and the reason why producers love putting A-list talent in their movies is because it puts butts in seats. We know that because of that following, we know people are going to go see that movie so as a working actor, developing your image and putting your brand out there is going to be very important because you’re increasing your value the more followers that you have so yes there are companies that out there you can grab yourself a publicist.
