2021 is going to be a different year for actors. From the way we audition to how we will be working, everything changed quickly in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Old rules no longer apply. That goes for TV pilot season, fim casting, as well as theater. This workshop was prepared after consulting with several actors and casting directors, as well as studying the rules and regulations of the entities which decide how entertainment workers should proceed on stage and on set. We will talk about:
Career planning: setting realistic goals, and ambitious goals – short and long term
Action plan: breaking down your goals into concrete steps to be taken as scheduled
Your brand as an actor: from headshot and reel to Social Media, what helps, what hurts, what is a waste of time.
Auditioning: the new industry standard for virtual meetings and call backs
Mindset and Support System: what happens when you book the job?
Networking virtually and contacting Casting Directors: the DO’s and DON’Ts
What about the Unions? For a non-union actors, we will cover the pros and cos of becoming unionized. For union actors, we will talk about the current challenges performers’ unions are facing and how they affect us.
The workshop will take place online via Zoom from 11AM to 3PM (Eastern Time) with one 30-minute break.
Participants are encouraged to send questions in advance. There will be time alloted for Q&A.
