What do actors think about this comp?

We actors read a lot of stuff from the film makers POV on these forums,was wondering what other actors thought about being involved in this gig?

Myself ,this is my 2nd year involved and have found it quite refreshing as time is a major factor when shooting which keeps you on your toes! Also a great opportunity to fine tune your wares !

I know mate. I did Power Rangers back in September 2008 and from the first moment I was hooked. Went from extra on Shortland Street to guest speaking role in just over 2 years, so I will look back on the start of the whole thing with fondness.

I mentioned earlier in this thread that I got work on 'Hounds' ( https://www.facebook.com/HoundsTVShow ) basically from being involved with 48hours.

It's on again this Friday at 10 on TV3.

You should watch it because it's really good but also because they cast a lot of new talent and if it goes well there is always a chance of a second season. So watch it and improve your chance of getting work down the track. (that was a pun)

About time we had a decent comedy in NZ. If the first show is anything to go by Toby, then you have a hit on your hands. Good, solid performances, nicely shot with great dialogue. Just have to wait for my agent to call now for second season lol...

All the best to you guys!
