Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt, You Can Do It, Ya Just Gotta Keep Moving

I'm super psyched about this week's guest, none other than Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt. You might know him from his iconic roles in Top Gun, The River Runs Through It, Alien, M*A*S*H*, and Picket Fences. We chat about his humble beginnings in Detroit, to his first films with none other than Robert Redford, Sydney Pollack and Robert Altman.


Tom's love for art and creativity have lead him to start the company Triple Squirrels and the EVRGRN channel, focusing on sharing stories that bring us inspiration, light and hope. This conversation is one that all young actors can learn from, about how to approach their art and how to keep a positive attitude in such an up and down career, as Tom says "just keep movin' kid, just keep movin'...."

There is No ONE WAY to Do It

In this excerpt from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, our monthly VIP, Xavier Dean, shares some very specific branding and marketing knowledge that he used to go from homeless to owning a 7-figure real estate company, a branding company, and boasting an Instagram platform with 1.3M followers. He has taken what he learned in business and applied it to his newfound acting career which has far exceeded my expectations from when I met him. But underneath all of the mechanics is a simple philosophy he believes, exemplified through this quote, "Well, before we just help you create a brand, you need to tell us, how does the world perceive you? Because we can work around the brand on how you think the world perceives you butyou need to go out there and ask random people, 'When you think about me, what'rethe first few thingsyou think of?' Because that is ultimately your story, and that's how you start working your brand."Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Talent Agent on How to Make a Great Self Tape Audition

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, our monthly VIP, Buchwald Talent Agent Marion Campbell and I, talk about the art of the self-tape. She said some clients have nailed it. And then there are some clients that just can't figure it out. And they don't know how to do it correctly. Rather than describe it, I'll leave you this quote from Marion which sums up the kind of gold this episode is full of, "so many clients have said to me over and over again, I make all these self tapes and then I don't hear anything back and they go into the either. And, yeah, I think that a lot of that is happening. But I think a lot of the tapes go into the ether because the casting director is looking at them and they're like, 'I just can't show this to my producers.' And then they delete it and they're on to the next."Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

If You Don't Show Up for the Audition You're Never Going to Get the Gig

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the fact that, while we all (hopefully) aim to do our best work all the time, sometimes just showing up is your best that day.If we allow ourselves to skip training sessions, or anything in our life that we've prioritized, it can be a slippery slope.Sometimes just the act of not being completely absent is enough to get you in motion to the point where, eventually, inspiration kicks in.And if it doesn't, at least that day wasn't a total deficit. It may not have been glorious, but you can still chalk it up as a day that you won the battle of perseverance, and build on it the next day. If you don't show up for the audition, you're never going to get the gig.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
