Anyone have advice on Acting work in Australia

Does anybody know how to find auditions etc in Australia if you don't have an agent?

Looking for Acting, Presenting, Dancing etc Paid work in Australia and don't really know how to begin looking, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lol, that's what I was just saying to my sister. Make it in America and then Australia will claim you.

Which city are you in? I know a good noticeboard in Surry Hills in Sydney thats always listing acting jobs and stuff like that.

There is a place in Surry Hills Sydney called The Actors Centre. Its a training place for actors.. They have a noticeboard with lots of info about auditions etc..

I'm In Sydney. Currently I check Filmnet.org.au but there's not much and most things you find are Non Paid.

Thanks Czechfan!

Re: Anyone have advice on Acting work in Australia

dont they have jobs in the paper, all calls for auditions. If your a good actor it shouldnt be too hard, look at the so called actors on home and away and neighbours

What are you trying to say . I'm looking for my sister. She had an agent up to the age of 18 and had appeared on home and away as a Featured Extra and also just a normal extra. She's done many things but getting a good job ain't that easy without an agent but most top/good agencies only take a handful of new people each year.

Do they list auditions in the paper for Home & Away etc? I've spent most of my time looking on the internet.

Re: Anyone have advice on Acting work in Australia

no not for home and away but for ad campaigns etc. Home and Away actors are alright im only joking. btw was your sister just an extra or did she have speaking lines, if so what part did she play.

She was a featured extra (I don't think she had a line, but I could be wrong). She was in a scene in the drop in centre as a street kid with Dani. She's attended some of the weddings and class room scenes. I know they had her name under Street kid in the credits for the featured extra but not the rest.

Karen started off as the good one and Blake the bad but she ended up being the bad one and started dating I think it was Rev Head.
