Today I'm feeling super proud and very grateful for how far Minute Monologue has come and just how much the initiative has grown in the last month! For those our you that don't know what it is, Minute Monologue is a way for actors to show their talent by recording different themed monologues each month and tagging us. We then share them all in one place onto our Instagram profile (we do have twitter too but Instagram is the main platform for it) where casting directors, agents, directors, anyone can look through and watch them in their own time to discover new talent. If you want more
I'm really happy because yesterday we had our first live Q&A on Instagram with the awesome platform that is WeAudition! We talked all things casting and discussed what things might be like and how the casting process may change after lockdown because of Covid19. We also chatted about what each of our platforms do to help actors. It was fantastic to engage with both of our communities and to be able to answer some of their questions. I'm grateful to Darren for joining me to talk. The video is on the IGTV section of the @MinuteMonologue Instagram proflie if you'd like to watch it later.
I'm hoping that we will be able to do lots more live chats on Instagram and keep growing a friendly and pro-active acting community on there, as well as sharing advice, opportunities, casting calls and workshops! It's so awesome to see casting directors, agents and directors starting to join in and follow the feed, I really do hope that the initiative will help people to achieve their goals and get work in this industry.
