Primarily artist card is needed as it offers a protection to an artist’s main needs like payments, working hours and so on. When a large production house requires a huge number of junior artists, the authentic organizations produce these cards.
Why Do You Need Artist Card:
Primarily artist card is needed as it offers a protection to an artist’s main needs like payments, working hours and so on. When a large production house requires a huge number of junior artists, the authentic organizations produce these cards. Let’s take a note of the other reasons behind getting an artist card:
- This card may be useful in particular for junior artists who do not have any professional training or who are devoid of any ambition to be the ‘super star’ in near future. Generally they don’t have dialogues or one or two perhaps. They may come from a community which sees acting as just a job to earn daily bread rather than an actual art. This is valid for people like makeup artist
- You can appeal to the union if you are a registered junior artist with an artist card in case the casting directors ask you to do overtime without any valid overtime.
- An actor with artist card and professionally trained may get better chance compared to an artist with union card holder.
Anyway this doesn’t mean that you can’t go without it since there are examples of people who had seen face of success without it. But it acts as a positive catalyst to fasten your progress.

DEALING WITH DISAPPOINTMENT
Don’t take it personally. By nature of the audition process, many talents will try out for a role but only one will receive it. To help children deal with the inevitable disappointment that comes when they don’t land a role, Rofé teaches her students that casting is “nothing personal.” A talent may nail an audition and still not receive the role simply because the director has a different look in mind for the part, for instance.
Poon says the word she and her husband use is “preference.” “It’s not about talent, it’s just the director’s preference. After you’ve done it enough, you know it’s not personal,” she says.
“You’ll never know why you don’t get the part,” . “They may have given it to an eighth-grader who’s graduating or maybe the role just wasn’t right for you—you never know. But every audition should be a win-win situation. If talents are confident and prepared, they’ll impress the director and they’re bound to get another role down the road.
”It’s okay to be nervous. In fact, it’s a good thing. “You need that adrenaline to run a marathon, why wouldn’t you need it in an audition? Take that nervous energy and turn it into good energy,”
