A lot of actors think that you only need to reach out to an agent once. They send their headshot and cover letter, and if they don’t hear back, they assume the agent passed on them.
But no answer really just means you have no information yet.
You have no idea where your materials have ended up: with the agent, their assistant or in a stack of papers somewhere in between. And agents are extremely busy with their current roster of clients to focus on, so don’t assume that once is enough.
In our final #SignWithAnAgent video, Acting and Career Coach Ethan Paulini offers his suggestions for second, third and fourth contact with potential agents, and when he thinks it’s time to add a manager to your team.
