Acting - Business of being an actor – Part III

Written by

If you’ve followed my last two blogs, you'll remember I talked about how you are a business, and must have your own business plan. It should be flexible, while holding you accountable, and it should make you feel good about yourself and your progress. I also discussed how there is no one formula, curriculum, certification, or credential to make a successful acting career. I personally believe there are certain required credentials, but still no specific career path.

The Business of Being an Actor – PART II

Written by

What are the credentials that actors need to succeed? Acting is one of the few professions that does not require a degree, or even specific training to get a job. It’s the only profession I’m aware of where if you have the best training in the world, studied at the finest institutions, performed theater all your life, and practiced under the most prestigious acting coaches and gurus - you are not guaranteed to get work.

Business of being an actor

Written by

actors1The beginning of the year is the perfect time to do a self-assessment; to review, make plans, and set goals. In my classes at the Actors Workout Studio, we spend time in January and February working on goals and actions, and discussing the actor’s business model. Painfully, a lot of actors don’t want to discuss the ugliness of business, just the beauty of making art. Some students even avoid my business classes altogether, and return when we get back to learning the craft.

I was having lunch the other day with a working actor friend of mine and the conversation turned to how different each set is. Some are friendly, some are not. Some move fast in some move slow. Some are fun, some not so much.
