All of the people I know that have been successful in the industry constantly keep track of their work. So, here’s why you should follow up on your acting roles as well:
1. You can use the material for your showreel
Follow up on your acting roles by collecting the works you have been a part of, whether it’s in TVCs or a role as an extra or a voiceover job—anything that shows your talent as an actor. When the work you’ve done is released, look for it, download a copy, always have one with you. Try searching for it on websites for the company you worked for or even ask the director or your agent if they know where you can access it. You can then use it to make your showreel.
