As a mom of six, I know firsthand how a parent can get lost in mommy- or daddy-hood. Suddenly, your dreams get put on hold. But why does it have to be one or the other? Why can’t you be a good parent and follow your dreams, too? So that’s exactly what I set out to do and now, I want every parent to know you can pursue a career in acting (or any industry) and still be a great parent. Here’s what you need to know. 1. You will be judged.
Whether you’re new to voiceover or have been at it for years, there’s a London conference coming up that’s not to be missed.

When it comes to navigating the film industry, even old hats aren’t experts. So imagine being a young filmmaker trying to learn the ropes and meet like-minded creators when you’re just starting out. It’s a complex world and going it alone can be tough. Thankfully, the BFI Future Film Festival exists to help and inspire emerging filmmakers through Masterclasses, workshops, screenings, and networking over four glorious days in London.
@eaterla New Yorker who will be in town mid-Feb., looking for a casual, fun spot to have 10ish friends gather for husband's 30th birthday on a Thursday night (preferably east side or K-town areas). Any recommendations?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
