                   Mary Rose

Have you been one of the fortunate clients of ActionActors who hired Mary Rose Rinaldi for your temp staffing need/promotion/customer service job?
If so congratulations, you helped Mary Rose pay her bills as she pursued her mission of creating an award winning short film.
Mary Rose & her team of creatives just took at the Best Film & Best Actress awards at the 2017 Tropfest film festival
Massive congratulations to you & your team Mary Rose. I have been around long enough to know that many of the film makers who win these awards do in fact go on to have fantastic careers in various forms of screen production.
As 2017 rolls on into it’s 3rd month, yeah that’s right only 10 months till Christams!, ActionActors has a heap of great clients on board and we have just kicked into a really busy period supplying over 20 personnel, all actors, to clients for work in such diverse sectors as hospitality at a wedding, flyer distribution to neighbourhoods affected by major construction projects, survey work with the MoT, NZ Police & Opus International, dusting down the interior of a newly renovated Herne Bay house before it is put on the market. A number of these clients are back for repeat business & we make sure their experience the second time round is as good if not better than the last time.

If you love heading along to shows from time to time the brutal reality is that only a small percentage of your ticket price will end up in an actors wage packet. Hiring temp staff from ActionActors is a fantastic win win, as you will be helping the actors you see on stage, to keep folloeing their dreams.
It’s really gratifying to know that through these jobs many actors will earn extra income to support their pursuit of a career in the performing arts & creative sectors. These clients may well be hiring the next Mary Rose!

You’ve got to love NZs 1 degree of separation!

Huge congratulations to Rosalie van Horik who has been on ActionActors database since 2012. Rosalie who is represented as an actor by The Human Agency has just wrapped shooting on the latest Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie as a stunt double for the female lead no less. Clients such as The Port Group, Think Research & The Internet Agency will be able to reflect in Rosalies wonderful success. They are clients who had Rosalie work on various projects from mystery shopping to car pool promotions.

The degree of separation? Human agency is owned by a woman I was in Limbs Dance Company with many years ago, & Rosalie was also the stunt double for NZ best actress award winner Sia Trokenhiem who is also on the ActionActors database.

 

Role Play training

I know when I mention role play and promotional work, I’m beginning to sound like the record my Dad loved playing of a brilliant song called Cab Driver, by the Mills Brothers. Dad would dance to it every time it played. When the song was finished he would reach out with his foot and give the stereogram a nudge…the needle would slide back across the record and the song would play again!

My repeating mantra is to do with the fact that ActionActors should be any business or organisations first port of call for the best in role play personnel.

Here’s a link to an annual event produced by Actors Equity Australia, of which NZ is an autonomous branch. It’s called the Casting Hothouse. A bunch of equity members get chosen by ballot to take part in a 2 day workshop with top international casting directors. They work through a number of prepared pieces, supplied by the casting directors, and spend 2 days immersed in this process. I’m aware role play and promotional work are different specimens however I would contend they are of the same species, they all require aspects of performance. So who better to hone these skills, that’s right!, all of our personnel are pursuing acting as a professional habit, if you know what I mean. Some of them can even make a living out of acting, the rest have to do other work. Not only do you get great role play and promotional work talent when you have ActionActors on board, the actors also love it as they are working the muscles they have been trained to use!

Action Actors, as you maybe aware, is a temp employment agency, sourcing short term contract work utilising a brilliant resource that already exists, that being hundreds of highly motivated actors who are between acting jobs. From the fantastic response we have already had of actors signing up, the skill sets are amazing. Our thoughts had been that the focus would be on promotional, hospitality, administrative, and event production work opportunities. However we are having to revise these as actors inform us of their areas of work experience. With RWC 2011 about to hit it will pay you to take a look at the actors already on our books, you will see that the skill sets are vast.

Here is a small anecdotal glimpse into the world of an Action Actor, and their array of skills & experience. This actor is me and here is what I got up to last week.

My work schedule for last week;

  • I spent 4 days ( Mon, Tues, Thurs, Sat ) driving a 10 tonne curtainsider truck, working for a mate who was moving his 3D printing company to new premises from Grey Lynn to Newton ( in 2010 I invested $3K getting my class 2 & 4 HT licences and my P endorsement to give me other work options as I get older while not owning a home or having a large pool of super funds to live off in later years, a brutal reality for many actors ). I loved driving that beast around the city streets, the very act of reaching up above your head to open the door of the cab, then having to pull yourself up 2 steps to sit in the drivers seat gives you a sense that you are in a totally different world on the road to car drivers. There was a alot of lifting, bloody heavy work etc, but it was earning me money.
  • On Wednesday and Friday I was an actor working with the legendary NZ filmmaker Gaylene Preston, portraying one of the characters involved in the tragic and controversial westcoast Strongman mine explosion of 1967. Needless to say I love acting, finally working with Gaylene was wonderful and although this was not a big money job, it pays better than truck driving, you get fed a damn fine lunch and there’s great espresso coffee available all day.  A little twist being that I had roasted the coffee we were drinking the previous week when I ran another mates roasting business, Santos Coffee Roasting,  while he took a well earned holiday!
  • In my lunch break on thursday, I shot to Stebbings Recording studio to do a voice over for a radio ad.
  • Then to cap the week off I hosted my 5hr overnight talkback show on RadioLIVE.

When I looked back at last week I realised it exemplified the working life of the vast majority of actors, multi skilled, disciplined, eager to work in order to pay the bills and to allow themselves to continue pursuing the passion for performing.

If you are a company owner or business person looking for short term contract staff or temp workers, you will do yourself a favour by contacting Action Actors and checking out what we have to offer, premium personnel!
