Aligned Stars Agency – Resume Basics
Overall Themes of your Resume:
Your resume sells a story just like your Headshots. It needs to look consistent throughout. Stick with one font that is easy to read. The only exception for a different font is for your name (that is completely optional). Standard sized Acting resumes are 8in x 10in. This is non-negotiable. Casting Directors will immediately trash anything that does not fit neatly in their pile. That means you will need to play around with the margins to get this to print correctly on standard paper. You will need to trim the paper to correct size after printing. Lastly, your resume must be one page.
Starting at the Top:
- Your Name
- Agency Name
- Agency Phone Number & Email
- Height& Weight
- Your Personal Website (optional)
The Header Section
Font size should follow the format of the Name being the largest font and the rest of the font remaining the same. The only reason to start making font smaller is because you are running out of room on the paper (Yay for being a working actor!!).
