    Exactly! Hard copy headshots and resumes are SO 20th century!

    i prefer a hi-res scan so i can print it out. because i like to tape top contenders to the walls of my office (aka "the crazy room") so i can see their faces next to other actors faces who are up for complimentary roles. helps me visualize them together in certain scenes.

    that being said, and this is admittedly a generalization, but i find that the sort of actor who mails you a headshot and resume after reading a casting call in a printed publication (like backstage west) is much more serious about their profession -- which correlates to punctuality, level of training, commitment, etc -- than their online counterparts who just need to click a button or two to submit the digital equivalent of a h/r to your casting director.

    This is exactly what I do.

    I also very much agree with your second paragraph.

    Everyone has their own process. As long as it works for you, that's all that matters.

    Hmmm.....maybe I'll design an Access database for producers and casting directors. One that is searchable by various criteria, and will display a split screen with the actor's headshot on one side and his resume on the other. That might be a handy little piece of software to have, eh?

    well, no that's not all that matters. there is the issue of "results". uwe boll has a process that works for him and his results speak for themselves.

    I consider 'results' to be part of the equation that determines whether or not a process 'works'.

    Well, I take for granted that people are able to watch a picture that is larger than your screen.

    Every normal picture viewer can scale it down to fit your screen. Where is the problem? I use Irfanview, which is free. http://www.irfanview.com/
