Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Tony,
I did what you said and…I got two interviews with two agents! Thank you! Sorry but can I ask you…how do I prepare to go meet the agent? What do I have to do?

Acting Workshops & Forums For Actors

ACTING WORKSHOPS AND FORUMS FOR ACTORS
ATTENDED AND HOSTED BY ACTING INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS

What are they?

Forums for actors attended by acting industry professionals are intended to give performers an insight into what casting directors, agents and managers are looking for in auditions and in the actors that they sign. Whom the forum is run by will dictate the content of what is discussed,but examples of subjects talked about are things like how to make yourself stand out from the crowd, what needs to go on your professional actor resume, how to write an acting cover letter or how to choose the right headshot for yourself. They will often also go into common mistakes the actors they see frequently make.

For whom are they and what are the benefits of attending?

If you are looking to break into the market these kinds of acting workshops and forums for actors can be invaluable. Hearing about other people’s experiences in the industry and hearing about the kinds of mistakes that they made or saw others make will eventually save you so much time, as you wont have to make the mistake yourself and find out the hard way! The forums that you attend where the host interacts with the attendees on a more one on one level will give you personalized information which you may not be able to get anywhere else. Above all of this, these people that hold these forums know exactly what the industry standards at that very moment, and will take all of the guess work out of your approach to your next audition or meeting with a potential agent.

Aside from these practical gains, these talks can be a great place to network with other people in the industry and can teach you a lot in a really short period of time. You should check online and with your trade papers to see when the next session is starting in your local area. Go with an open mind and see what you can get out of it!
