Looking for an agent too soon is a mistake.
Every day, new actors email me a simple question:
"I'm just getting started and want know how to get an acting agent?"
Unfortunately, thousands of actors get scammed every year... by people pretending to be agents.
I don't want the same to happen to you.
Here's the reality: Legitimate, non-scammer agents are only looking for actors who already have at least a few credits on their resumes.
That's why, if you want the best chance of growing your acting career from scratch, you've gotta do some work on your own before agents and casting directors will consider you.
You should aim to get at least 3-5 speaking credits on your resume BEFORE you start searching for an agent.
Which brings us to the question:
Hey, I'm Martin Bentsen and I help actors get unstuck.
You might have joined an acting class, gotten professional headshots, or paid to shoot footage for your reel, but if you're being honest, has your career been growing? Or do you feel stuck getting just 1-2 auditions per month (or less)?
I know actors who've gotten stuck for YEARS, and no matter what they tried (and how much money they spent updating their materials), nothing changed.
Before they knew it DECADES had flown by... and they looked back wondering about all the opportunities that could have been.
Luckily, no matter how old you are, there's still time to build an acting career you can be proud of.
If you believe your true calling is to become an actor, then I believe it's your OBLIGATION to start putting yourself out there by building a SYSTEM that will help you start booking consistent acting work.
And the sooner you build that system, the sooner you can start reaping the rewards.
I built this 5-day course specifically for actors who are struggling to book real, paid speaking roles.
The course works even if you're not based in the USA.
Kickstart Your Acting Career shows you how to start getting auditions for real, paid speaking roles so you can build your resume and reel as quickly as possible.
It's built specifically for actors who don't have connections, experience, credits, or footage yet.
Kickstart Your Acting Career boils everything you need to know down to JUST the 5 exact steps necessary to start getting at least 1-2 auditions per week for legit, paid speaking roles in indie productions, so you can start building your resume as quickly as possible.
A Layout of the Course:
Kickstart Your Acting Career is broken into five video lessons, each about 10-20 minutes long. The videos will be sent to you over the course of five days.
Day 1: The Most Critical First Step
"I always thought you had to have professional experience, headshots, and an agent right away, but I now know that it doesn’t matter how experienced I am in the acting industry. What matters is to be consistent with my work, and build a system for constant progress and improvement.

"I'm used to being offered advice that I've already tried (or which I don't feel is adapted to my situation), but your approach doesn't make me feel like I have to squeeze into an ill-fitted cooky-cutter. The exercises you offer are very effective in terms of results, and that clearly defines the value of your course. I can feel your genuineness and for that you have my total respect. Thank you again for your dedication and support in this industry, Martin. I will remember your name and your kindness."

"I think one of the most helpful things to me of Kickstart Your Acting Career was the format itself. I am one of those 'spreadsheet people' who loves breakdowns and lists, so having everything divided into clear steps (which could all be accomplished in a week!) made it seem so much more manageable. I have never seen a step-by-step program to getting started (or gaining momentum) like yours.
