Many members have asked what does “Indie” mean.
In the context of film production Indie Film means Independent Film. An independent film is NOT a major film company and has produced some of the finest films ever made.
What is an independent film (Indie Film) and what does it mean to me?
Read more about Independent Film Companies and how you as an actor or extra can benefit working in an Indie project in the EFM forums.
It does not matter if you have never modeled, acted or worked as an extra, you need to begin a resume.
Regardless of your credits and experience, a résumé is the professional and standard way to apply for a job. It is the same for the entertainment industry.
You need to begin a resume and then build upon and improve your résumé as you gain experience.
We have created a little resume builder for actors and models. It will help you format your resume and allow you to cut and paste your information into a format you can customize.
We see so many members and even experienced actors who do not have a resume. This is amazing to the staff and what prompted them to give members a jump start with the model and actor resume builder.
Many of your are just getting started in the field of modeling or acting and not sure where to begin, in addition to the information here, you may want to log in to the EFM forums and read the many posts regarding how to get into modeling or acting for any age human or not.
It is a good practice and professional for a model or actor to provide a resume with their photos when submitting for a casting call or audition.
You will be sending out or leaving a number of resumes and in most instances you will not know who sees it, so note our warning that when creating a resume, limit your personal information What we mean is to not make it a habit to include your home address, email address and telephone numbers you don’t want to give to strangers on your resume.
By all means, you need to provide contact info but just be sparingly until you know who you are giving it to.
Keep in Mind that as a handmealine member, you have the ability to use us as your initial contact email of our casting department, allowing all email to go through their review before forwarding to your email address.
Another option is that if you do not have have a profile on our web site yet, consider getting one where you can get a web link to use that displays all your pictures and resume. All email from that page will go directly into the casting department to review before forwarding to your personal email address.
Build your resume around your Talents and Abilities
A resume is what you will leave behind or submit for a project in order to inform the casting personnel more about you.
For those who are new and want to know how to get started in the industry as an actor or model and who does not have any credits yet, our advice is to focus on your special talents and abilities, everyone is good at something.
Many casting projects consist of casting personnel seeking extras, actors, models who have a “Look” or specialized ability for a segment they are shooting. If you have that ability then you may be right for the role or scene
It does not matter whether you have modeling or acting experience when you are beginning your resume. (Of course it DOES matter what experience you have but in the context of these tips it does not).
Hope this is helpful, send us your comments..
Just follow instructions and if you need our assistance, we are happy to help. If you want to send your resume to us to critique, email us and the staff will take a look and send back to you with comments if needed.

We are currently casting for a new web-series called Dreams. Dreams, is a show about 4 teenagers aspiring to become the next big thing in the entertainment world.
The show takes place at the Donohough School of Performing Arts where Bradley, Mischa, Alec, and Tara, the 4 main characters, dream of stardom. The show focuses on the trials and tribulations of being a teenager in a dog eat dog industry. Here is where the interesting part comes in. Each actor will be able to film there scenes at home on a green screen.
We will then take each actors footage, edit it all together, and a show will be born. This is a non paying job, but it will be great experience, and could help you become a global star!

Green Screens are a must, plus you have to have a decent camera.
Bradley Oaks-(15-18) Bradley is an aspiring actor who lets no one get in his way. He is determined to be the next big thing. He must deal with the pressures of auditions, call backs, and rejection. Besides having to deal with the pressures of the entertainment industry, he also has to face the difficulties of being a teenager.
Mischa Pearson- (15-18) Mischa is the quintessential Drama Queen. She is the triple threat of Donohough Performing Arts and wont let anyone forget it. She never cracks under pressure and always seems to have it together, but there is a dark side to this Miley wannabee.
Alec Anderson- (15-18) Alec is a singer who dreams of making it big like his idols. He is constantly going to open mic nights and performing for anyone who will listen. He is determined to take it as far as it will go, but there will be bumps along the way for this soulful songbird.
Tara McCormick- (15-18) Tara is the graceful dancer of the group. She has been dancing since she could walk and dreams of dancing with companies such as complexions. She tends to obsess over the little things and doesnt get the big picture. Tara has a very tender heart and loves her friends. But when she notices some competition her tender heart becomes cold very quickly.
