There are many places where industry leaders may discover talent. There have been incidences where actors and models have been discovered while simply walking down the street. In this case, they might have the perfect look for a certain role in an entertainment production. Though this discovery method can happen on occasion, talent is most commonly discovered in places where talent is being displayed.

How to Discover Talent

If you are interested in finding ways to discover talent, there are many places you can look. You can contact agencies to find specific types of actors, models, singers, or dancers. You can also attend different shows and look for stand-outs. There are many different types of shows that you can attend, including plays, musicals, cabaret shows, lounge acts, and concerts.

If you do not have the time or money to see many shows, you can look on talent network websites to discover talent. These networks post portfolios of performers who are looking for work. You can view their credits, skills, specialties, interests, and you may also look at pictures of these performers in their portfolios.

Perhaps you are interested in being discovered, rather than doing the discovering. If you are a performer who is looking for work, you can also post your portfolio on a talent network website. One of the best things you can do for your career in entertainment is to find a good agent to represent you. Agents may find you from your online portfolio, or you can send your portfolios directly to agencies for consideration.
