Why You Should See Rejection as Opportunity

So when a client told me she’d been putting together a reel of her rejected self-tapes, my initial reaction was puzzlement.

To an actor, that kind of rollercoaster of near acceptance only to teeter into rejection can feel like death. It’s the kind of thing that makes actors afraid to showcase their work and it’s one of the reasons why actors loathe going on tape. They don’t want the uncertainty of putting it all out there and never knowing what anybody thought.

You have to learn how to fail just as much as you have to learn how to succeed.

Don’t just tape, send it in, and let it go.
