Los Angeles -- I received a video yesterday from a friend who made the rounds at AFM like so many working Actors/Producers connecting their film/video projects whether completed or in the nascent stages of pre production or post production with the people that take these visually moving masterpieces of storytelling to the general public through creative marketing and sometimes through creative packaging.
Part of that packaging involves marketing ones self if you are an actor, through the accessibility at one of the many media venues available to you on any given day that you happen to be either exhibiting or attending. Whether it is a the step and repeat red carpet scene or the repeat and step cocktail scene the opportunities to connect are endless.
Theo Crissell is one such character. He is a working independent actor and producer (read between the lines, he does not have a studio first look deal, so he really is an independent company) that churns out anywhere between 5 to 6 low budget features a year. He has been selling some and he has been marketing some and he has been hyping some. This is where Actors Reporter, an online magazine, better known as an e zine caught up with him, at the AFM (American Film Market) in November at the Loews in Santa Monica.
True self financed independent producers are the life blood of this industry. Without the minor leagues you wouldn't have the majors. Each feeds the other. And if you don't get that then maybe you should start polishing up your resume.
If you want to learn more about Actors Reporter please visit their e zine at www.actorsreporter.com. If you want to see Theo Crissell in action, caught in the act at the AFM. Here then is his interview with Actors Reporter. See you on the step and repeat.
