I Want to Be an Actor!

How do I become an actor? How can I learn more about the entertainment industry? How do I get ready to audition? Where do I even begin?

 

You’ve come to the right place! This two-day, 6 hour intensive will help kick start your career in acting. It’s the first step in understanding how the industry works from slating to booking. Our actors are successfully booking across the board from stage to screen so what are you waiting for?

 

Once you register, you will receive an email containing an information packet to help you prep for this incredible class. You will be asked to tape yourself at home with instructions to upload that video. You will also be asked to prepare a commercial script with materials we send to you. We take training seriously and we want you to be ready for your new career!

 

This virtual intensive is taught over zoom by our trained experts. Here’s what you’ll learn!

  • The entertainment industry including the types of work available to actors, how to be considered for jobs, the pros and cons of talent representation, headshots & resumes, the audition experience, and the booking process

  • Auditions. The unspoken rules, protocols, what to wear, all about slating, self-tape essentials, commercial auditions vs. theatrical audition

  • Know Your Role: Headshots, reels, and online casting sites

  • What’s next for you? Q and A time, and feedback from our teachers

 

Once you complete this 2 day intensive, you will be armed with the skills needed to nail your first audition!

Bookings for this intensive close 2 hours before the session starts. Note: If you register less than 24 hours in advance we may not have time to process your videos. You will, however, still be able to learn from the critique of other videos.
