Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 949: I'm on a roll dayplaying on 1 show, how do I turn it into more work?
The best time to seek out work is when you're working. If you're working a few days a week on a show, the best way to turn it into more days is to call people (either from set, on your way there, or on your way home) and share your passion about what you're working on. People get caught up in your excitement and passion and want to be around people who are so positive.
If you've had mentors or champions in the past, call them to tell them you're working and thank them for their contribution. If they are working on a show, perhaps ask for a set visit on an off day to maintain the momentum of being on set.
