Actor Roles In Tampa Bay

As the Tampa Bay Acting site finally launches and joins up with sister sites Tampa Bay Modeling and Tampa Bay Film in the online mutiverse, we address the roles that are available to professional actors in the Tampa Bay market. While we would love to say that film and television roles are good here, currently this is not the case. For now, the only thing that we can recommend are theater and dinner theater roles in addition to television commercial gigs.
Some of you may be asking about indie film in Tampa Bay. What about it? The majority of indie film makers in the Tampa Bay market are amateurs, and they can do little for the careers of actors. With an abundance of horror films and other film projects with questionable production quality, the indie film community here in Tampa Bay is in severe need of professional film makers and motion picture production companies to become involved.
Sure, there are talented film makers here. The work from Icon Film Studios, Marcus Kotch, and a few others are excellent, but 80% of everything else is merely derivative at best, and most suffer from film makers who don't know what they are doing. The reason that there are so many indie film festivals crowding the Tampa Bay area is a mystery to me, too, as there are not nearly enough quality films coming from this area to support any film festival.
Will the situation here improve? It is inevitable, and we we be sure to steer you toward the best indy film companies and film productions as they enter the scene.
