Just try it. I give casting call notices for Illinois since I grew up in the state. When I first moved to L.A. in the 1980s, I worked this circuit to get a better understanding of the business of show. I came back at age 30 and worked on newspapers and radio and newspaper syndications in Illinois, and more. Always kept my hand in many pots. Now, going back to Illinois from L.A. and back again...it goes on, when it can. I now do it more of a hobby as I approach my mid-50s. But, I like to update how the business works for those who are thinking the same thing I did after college. Going there was like getting a Master's Degree in the business, with on-hands work. While working as extra/stand-in and bit played in Hollywood, I also worked on newspapers (in the 1980s/early90s) and had a corner on the newspaper syndicate market for trivia and information/lists.
