Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!
We wanted to do a little yearly round up chocked full of the resources we've found for y'all, so you can go into the next year even more successful than this one!
Starting back from March, we gave out a few books...or a service that gives you the opportunity to read some.
This is Scribd. They have plays, books, everything you might like to read! For more info, you can find the blog post HERE!
Next up, from April, we shared some affirmations that have been extremely helpful this year - throughout all of the letdowns we may have had, or bad auditions trying to stay positive may have been a challenge. If you want to start your 2020 off on a positive note, you can find the affirmations HERE!
Also from April, we have some VoiceOver resources. One of them being:
They're a membership service, but also a casting site that allows you to upload your VO reels!
There's also VO Planet. It's like Casting Networks but for VoiceOvers!
Next, since Social Media has become a part of casting nowadays (eye roll), we have to be on the top of our game when it comes to what content we're sending out to our Social Channels.
You can plan the posts with Planoly
It's a service that allows you to post whenever you want to. We recommend using it with the app below: When To Post
It shows you when the best times throughout the day are so you can post for the most exposure!
May brought us some audition resources. If you ever need an self-tape audition on the fly, we recommended We Audition
It's a $10/month subscription service (like Casting Networks) that gives you access to readers AND you can sign up to be a reader for other's auditions AND get paid for those gigs.
June gave us musical and rehearsal spaces for a reasonable price! Scholes Street Studio is where it's at!
August brought more Social Media goodies!
ResizeForStory was the one and only, besides our FIRST INSTAGRAM Pop-Up!!
September brought some career resources that have been found to be VERY helpful. WiseStamp allows you to create your very own unique email signature!
We've also got some headshot printing resources. Everyone knows about Reproductions, but how many of you know about Quick Color Photo Lab or Dirt Cheap Headshots?
And to round up September, we have more Social Media tools for picture editing:
VSCO is chocked full of editing tools!
Afterlight 2 is a FREE editing tool as well and with more resources than VSCO.
TouchRetouch is an app that's very much like Photoshop, but it's on mobile and SUPER easy to use.
October gave us some filming tools for those of us creating our own content. We started with FiLMiC Pro. It's an application that works as a video camera, AND shoots in 4K, and is used by some of the best directors in the world.
In November the Co-op hosted a great event for Social Media Gurus by Social Media Gurus that was a smash hit.
We also concluded the month with a resource focused around making your everyday life easier! IFTTT (If This Then That) is an online resource that gives you access to a bunch of services and they send notifications to your phone.
If you've ever left your house without an umbrella and got stuck in the rain later, this service is for you!
There ya have it folks! A whole year of resources in one tight little package. It's like we wanted to give you a present before Christmas rolled around...oh, and speaking of which:
