Breakdown Services’ Gary Marsh to present at the Louisiana Actors Expo


LOS ANGELES, Calif., Sept. 16, 2011 – Gary Marsh, the president of Breakdown Services, will be adding his expertise to the third annual Louisiana Actors Expo. The conference provides education and development for the hundreds of artists, performers and producers in the Gulf South Region. Louisiana Actors Expo will be on Saturday, September 24 from 9AM – 5PM at the Pan American Life Building Business Conference Center in New Orleans. For questions, or to register go to www.louisianaactorsexpo.com.


Marsh’s presentation will give a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the casting process. Attendees will see exactly how casting directors view and manage online submissions in a live demonstration and learn how to put submissions in the best possible light.

In addition, Breakdown Services’ Eco-Cast, its virtual pre-read audition system will also be demonstrated at the conference. As part of the demonstration, actors who participate in one-on-one sessions with casting directors will have their auditions captured and uploaded to Eco-Cast. That link will then be sent to agents and casting directors in Los Angeles, Texas and Louisiana, giving them a unique opportunity to be seen in multiple locations without traveling anywhere.

The Louisiana Actors Expo, which was originally created by the New Orleans Actors Recourse Center (NOARC), adds even more this year after partnering with Cutting Edge: CE (formerly the Cutting Edge Music Business Conference). The event brings together casting directors, talent agents, directors, writers and others in the Louisiana Film Industry. Actors from all over the region are invited to participate in what has been called the biggest event in Hollywood South.

The New Orleans Actors Resource Center is a non-profit, membership-based organization comprised of four programs developed for the advancement, exposure and ongoing education of actors in the New Orleans Metropolitan area: The Actors' Co-Op, The Workshop Series, an Actors Library and Acting Classes.

Booking: 21 AND OVER - Ross Grossman/Gen Kiyooka












BRENNA SMITH
Booked: 21 AND OVER
Role: Head Sorority Sister
Represented By: Ross Grossman/Gen Kiyooka
Casting Director: NANCY NAYOR
Additional Notes: [HEAD SORORITY SISTER] 21 and Latina. A tough, tall, and intimidating woman who kicks the asses of Casey and Miller. They are nervous at the very sight of her... When Brenna Smith came to Affinity, she didn't even have a headshot. Only her talent and a monologue, which she performed live for Ross Grossman. Ross signed her on the spot. A few weeks later she did a professional headshot session and emailed us a proof sheet. She needed a headshot so desperately, I used screen grab to copy and paste a low-res image and uploaded it into her Actor's Access profile. It was that picture that got her in for 21 AND OVER (her first audition). She nailed it.

Booking: DEAD END - Gen Kiyooka











REBECCA FINER

Role: Amanda(LEAD)
Represented By: Gen Kiyooka
Casting Director: Sherri Maddox
Additional Notes: Rebecca Finer was recommended to me as a commercial client by Affinity's Head of TV & Film, Erich C. Smith, who had seen her perform at a showcase. Rebecca was also interested in theatrical representation and I gave her a list of tasks to complete in order to be eligible for same. She did them all, quickly and efficiently. Even though the role of Amanda is a "good girl", we like her more for "bad girl". I'm sure you can see why...
