I'm asking actors that I know who would like to be in private staged readings of new works in development, using video conferencing, to get in touch.

Please include a link to your latest reel I haven't seen your work in two or more years.

No clients for this yet, but it is good to know who would want to do it. I will take referrals for clients who may include writers and small production companies.

Legally this would be a workshop for private consumption only.

If a writer/producer client wants to use some of the material for pitching, we need to come up with a deal-memo release prior to the reading for all actors as a publicity vehicle - where naturally we *want* you to get cast, even if we can't guarantee it. Expectations will be in writing prior to your participation.

You can contact me through this page and I will make a file. I hope to hear back from my non-New York actors, too.

This is a place holder "introduction" post to mention that Rachel Kadushin, Gisele Haralson , Tamie Collins Markee (Tammy Collins Markee), and Eugene Mikle are teaming up with others to try to help residents in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area. The proposal from one of our friends and partners is to create a "Baton Rouge Relief Fund."

We are still in the very early stages of planning, but want to do something right now. The replies to this post will be "resources" and "services" doing things right now in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, which includes several parishes and small incorporated towns and cities.

We are going to be reaching out to groups and pages on facebook and ask you to "like" Best Friends Productions for updates or to participate in planning or taking steps.

One example - which does not have a page on facebook at this time - is Gisele Haralson's "Celebration of Women" #CelebrationofWomen Event which debuted in March 2016 and donated to the Baton Rouge Food Bank and St. Judes Children's Hospital from their proceeds. There will be a 2nd Annual event in March 2017.

Teaser Trailer (4.5 minutes) for A Celebration of Women Footage High Resolution

Editing this post to reflect Gisele Haralson's release about her next Celebration of Women Event:

She wrote, "The date has been set for our next A Celebration of Women event. March 11, 2017 is the date and the best and brightest women will be celebrated for their accomplishments and achievements.".

https://vimeo.com/160361401/578f7f5cfe

In the video clip , "Listen as Louisiana 1st female governor Kathleen Blanco speaks about women supporting each other."

Gisele continues, "Last week we reached a milestone when Hillary Clinton became the 1st woman to become a major party nominee for President of the United States. Regardless of feelings about her; history has been made. Inbox me if you would like to nominate an outstanding woman for next year event. We Rock!!!"

Tagging our video crew partners Fresh Wave Media Solutions.

While Rachel Kadushin is not a committee member for the event, Best Friends Productions will help out as requested or to be planned. Thanks everyone who helped with the test version of this post.

Reading and evaluating film business plans is only one element of being a producer, but they take a lot of skills and experience to be done right. You're in a position to both elevate work in the arts and do good commerce for potential investors.

The keys to reading a film business plan are figuring out what they have, what they want, what you can provide directly, what you can provide from your team (who could be available in your team to do it), and figuring out how the things that the project will need beyond that could be fulfilled.

One part reading comprehension, one part experience, one part knowledge, and one part analytical. Part of being analytical is determining if it is worth your time to see if anything important was left out of the business plan. Then, if what was left out was from ignorance or from hoarding resources. - Rachel Kadushin
