In this workshop taught by Janice Baker & Vanessa Neff, we will discuss what every new actor needs to know about getting started in film, television, and commercials. What professional training, and materials you need, what you need to know about an agent or management representation and what happens at a casting call. We will walk you through the process from submission to booking work, how to get paid and how to avoid scams. All participants will tape an on camera “slate” and receive this video after the class.
WHAT WE WILL DISCUSS:
GETTING STARTED (What you need – Headshots, resume, demo reel, etc.)
HOW TO FIND WORK (Actors Access, etc)
THE CASTING PROCESS (Submissions, auditioning, callbacks, etc.)
TALENT AGENCY REPRESENTATION (Agent, manager basics, etc.)
This is is a one day workshop that will take approximately 4 hours. There will be a 30 minute snack and bathroom break.
