The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.
--Zen Buddhist Text

Oh, never mind this inventory! How about the serious stuff? The business of acting!
Kids, I decided to use this directory for the stuff I do not have much time to talk in classes -- the Buisness of ShowBiz. What do you think your resume is for?
First, you, actors. Directors is entirely diffirent market, product and so on. Gwt use to the commercial (business) terms. You better do it now, right now. If you do not have your resume, stop reading and go away to make one. Read the acting directories, see other "resume" pages -- and cook something.
Oh, you got it? Good.
Do you have your Actor's Journal? Do you keep after the class is over? For how many years? What did you write in about your professional future? Well, then go and do it right now.
BTW, do you have your webpage? Why not? IBM, Ford, Sears, MS -- they have it, why do you think that you do not need it? You need it more than them! It's the SHOWbusiness, kid -- show yourself!
There are plenty places, where you can do it for free. Get organized, package yourself, present yourself -- showtime!
.... You know what? Go to my actors forums, subscribe yourself and post your resume (that's for starters). You even can download your headshot... What? You don't have it? This is the SHOWbusiness, kid -- we have to SEE everything!
Maybe you do not understand that with arrival of the Internet and Web we all became actors -- performers, at least. Start acting! "Actors ready?" "Action!"
... No, no! Cut!
What do we do now? We learn something before we go for the take two... Do you know what went wrong? See audition pages in acting directories (Fundamentals, Biomechanics, Method).
