So, you’re thinking about having your own website?

Like most industries, the internet is an essential tool for the actors’ portfolio. Most companies such as Spotlight or your agents website will already have uniformed pages for you with a CV and ubiquitous headshot. But is it unique? Does it stand out from the rest? Can you edit it yourself?

For the actor, a personal website is an opportunity to break away from the traditional format of  the 10×8 photograph and a brief résumé. After all, anyone in the world can view your site, any place, any time! With an ActorCV website, you can showcase:

  • your showreel
  • your voicereel
  • the other portrait shots that you liked and paid for but your agent said no to
  • production stills
  • reviews from past productions (perhaps links to them)
  • a personal blog with your latest news (that you can update yourself!)
  • include your social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter etc)

But offers more. This website also offers free advice on getting the best out of your online presence including useful DIY tips and stuff you can do for free or on a budget! There is also a growing directory of useful links

and an online store selling actor essentials including scripts, sheet music, gifts, CD’s, DVD’s and more. So bookmark this site now – an essential resource for the actor.
