If you've ever asked yourself (or others) questions like:
Why didn't I get called for that audition, but my friend (who's the same type) did?
What does "first refusal" really mean?
I have three (3) agents... why didn't any of them call me?
What actually makes a "good" headshot?
When I send a taped audition, is anyone really watching it?
Why don't I get asked to tape auditions more often?
How many different headshots do I need?
Do I really need a reel?
What's the correct billing for film? For tv? (And no - "principal" isn't correct for either!)
How do I know if I have a good reel...or if it's doing more damage than good?
What am I supposed to look for when I sign a contract?
Should I get an agent in Atlanta?
Then this workshop is for you! We'll cover those topics and many, many more!
