Hi everybody, I’m Laci Kay of the Actors Reporter and welcome to the TradeVine. Our goal at the TradeVine is to help you stay informed and to keep up with some of the entertainment news you may have missed in the Trades, such as The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Variety, and Backstage.

 

Back Stage, April 29th – 5 Tips For Auditioning During the Spring and Summer, by Jackie Reid.

1. Slather on sunscreen every time you leave the house. If you are auditioning for a commercial, it might not air until the fall or winter, and a tan will be out of place. You could be diminishing your chances at booking that spot or you could be ruled out entirely. Besides helping your career, your skin will thank you when you’re older.
2. Dress appropriately. Unless you are asked to wear a bathing suit, the most amount of skin you should display should be regular shorts and a tank-top.
3. Take classes. School is out, leaving free time to improve your craft and get some more training on the resume.
4. Update your tools. Check your resume and make sure all of your credits and classes are up to date. 5. Reach out to your rep. Summer is typically slow and is the perfect time to connect with your agent and manager and discuss your career. Go over what goals you share and let them take a fresh look at your pictures and resume.
 

 

Hollywood Reporter, April 29th – MGM Casts Unknown for Male Lead in ‘Town That Dreaded Sundown’ (Exclusive), by Borys Kit. Young newcomer Travis Tope has booked the male lead opposite Addison Timlin in MGM’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown. Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum are producing the remake of the 1976 horror thriller. The part is a coup for Tope, who auditioned via tape for a couple of Hollywood productions while based in Texas. Nothing took, but he was encouraged enough to move to Los Angeles. He was in town for a whole 10 days before he nabbed the Sundown part, beating out at least two other more established young actors. 

 

Variety, April 29th – Emmys Double Down on Second Screen, by Andrew Wallenstein. For this year’s edition of Primetime Emmys, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is doubling down on its commitment to show love for interactive programming. In the Emmy context, “interactive” denotes anything that encourages proactive engagement from the audience. The Academy’s 12-year-old interactive media peer group will move from two to five awards in recognition of the growing diversity of offerings in the field. Chief among the changes is the establishment of a competitive award for outstanding interactive program. The Academy also has expanded the existing juried Emmy for creative achievement in interactive media to include four areas of competition: multiplatform storytelling, original interactive program, social TV experience and user experience/visual design. Each will be presented at the Creative Arts segment of the Emmys.

 

Well, that’s it for the TradeVine this week. I’m Laci Kay. Thank you very much for watching. And remember, You heard it through the Tradevine!
