entertainment industry coach question 686: What's the best way to handle it when contacts get pilots?
He continues: “These are contacts I know somewhat but I'm pretty sure I'm not their absolute first call. They're also facebook friends.”
This answer is going to depend on your credits. I happen to know the person who asked this question has an impressive credit list and has worked for the studio system before. Therefore, in your case, you can contact them to congratulate them on their pilot, and tell them that you imagine they already have their “person,” but you’ve learned by getting shows like (insert 2 of your most impressive credits here) that you never know when someone is looking a fresh (or use your own adjective) sound. Should they be interested in hearing a variety of composers (in his case) before making a final decision, you’d be happy to send your (insert marketing materials here).
If you are not established enough to be this bold, I’d like to invite you to my FREE SEMINAR OPEN TO ALL “HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF PILOT SEASON” The Art of Acting Studio in Los Angeles has graciously opened it’s doors to EVERYONE on my list. This is a great opportunity to network with people in various classifications and learn some new strategies for getting work during pilot season. Wed, January 26th, 2-5pm or Thurs, January 27th, 7:30-10:30pm RSVP to events@theGreenlightCoach.com SUBJECT LINE: RSVP Pilot Season and specify the date and time. You will receive confirmation and location
