The life of Hollywood is a crazy world after all. You will find the rich, the poor, the ugly and the beautiful people. But, how do you actually get a good pool of applicants the next time you are putting together a film? Our experts here at Coby Film examined the best ways to find hot guy talent that can also act professionally.
Hot Men With Acting Talent
Let’s get one thing straight, it’s easy to find hot guys to star in your next film project. What isn’t easy is finding a good looking hunk that also has good acting skills. Believe us when we say that because we’ve gone down the road of no return.
In order to find beautiful people that can also act, you must put them in a role play situation. Yes, that sounds obvious, but it is the details of the environment in which you provide them.
Create “Real Life” Situations
You may be wondering why we put “real life” in quotations. Simply put, we are suggesting to create a real situation and acting scene that your film will actually go through with. We see countless big-time Hollywood companies make this mistake over and over again. You would be super surprised how many of these film companies don’t create real acting scenes for auditions. Most have a system that they have used for years. Some of it works, but most of it doesn’t.
Passing the Eye Test
As cruel as this sounds, you must have a list of features of the man you are looking to hire. Be as detailed as possible. We put together a short list of what we look at. Check that below:
- Cheek bone structure
- Chin structure
- Eye color
- Nose size
- Hair – (fluffy, smooth, thin, thick, etc.)
- Muscle definition (Biceps, Triceps, Shoulders, Chest, etc.)
- Height and Weight (we prefer at least 5’10 and 175 lbs)
- Butt (that’s right, make sure he has a cute ass)
- Leg size and tone
- Skin tone
This should honestly be the first step in hiring someone. You need to make sure the hot guy fits what you’re looking for in terms of appearance. So, we suggest you get a list together and find out exactly what you’re looking for.
Once you understand what you want, now it is time to go out and find them. Sure, they may be a dime a dozen, but we have a better plan than just putting an ad in the paper.
The first thing you want to do is advertise on a gay, or gay porn website. Hotnudemen.net is our favorite place to advertise because it is filled with the right audience – hot naked men. The amount of responses you will get will be out of this world. The tricky part is to actually find these guys that have acting talent.
Rigorous Acting Audition
We love the word rigorous – it’s daunting! That’s exactly what you need to put these men through. In order for your film to be a hit, it needs good acting talent. Put them through an audition that will test their emotions, ability to memorize a script and show off their body language. If you can find a way to do all three of those things, you will be able to judge good talent.
Can They Take Coaching?
This is a huge deal and don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. We believe in coaching and if an applicant is Coachable. You will have to ask yourself these four questions:
- Can he take direction?
- Does he improve when you give him advice?
- Will he be willing to learn more from you?
- Is he coachable?
This is so important! We don’t just scrap any guy that walks through the audition and bombs it. IF (and a BIG IF) he shows some sign of ability, we will give him opportunities by providing coaching. Do not over look this portion, Most companies that don’t do this are lazy, or, they play the numbers game. Unfortunately, with a smaller budget, you will not be able to play the numbers game.
Final Words of Wisdom
We’ve been in this industry for a long time. It’s like when we apart of Coby Film. Many people considered that a masterpiece. We are certainly proud of it and we want to help the next company do something great just like we did.
Finding talent isn’t easy. It takes skill to be able to properly judge someone auditioning and the way someone looks. You must know all the emotions and be able to articulate what you are looking for.
Finally, see if your applicants are coachable. Again, we cannot stress the importance of that enough. It is a lost art to be able to guide someone through an audition, but if you are a good enough teacher, you will be able to find diamonds in the rough. Good luck out there and let us know how your audition went!
