How Actors Get More Work!

An actress lands three, full years of continual work earning a weekly salary, benefits, and vacations. She’s going on her fourth year of steady acting-work without an audition.

Paul RussellA non-union actor re-vamps his marketing & branding strategy for seeking auditions. His audition appointment responses triple: he books his first principal role in a feature film.

A middle-aged actor—the bean bag of entertainment for years—has no champion and few opportunities offered. He takes control of his career, snares a champion, and has been booking screen work continuously for the past two years.

How did these actors create opportunities and win work?

They, and dozens of artists like them, did two things:

1) They seized control by blowing off the, “where’s my career” woes. 2) They sought my guidance on their audition & marketing skills.

I don’t take full credit for their successes. I’m a gateway MFA & BFA programs, and individual actors seek for my joyful sharing of expertise for a successful acting career. Fulfillment of goals is dependent upon the actor to take, and leverage industry insight to their advantage. The actor is in control; not me.

Because actors recently wrote me how they’d been helped by our time together strengthening their career I’m launching a new master class in NYC that I’ve been teaching at universities for nearly a decade. The entirety of the actor’s career, and acting skills, are covered. The master class has adviser panels consisting of casting directors, talent agents, and/or mangers. And the four-week class is for all actors: represented & non-represented!
