Prerequisite: Students must have completed Beginner Acting Class II: Getting Specific

This is a holistic approach to identifying where you are in the business, and how to get started in your career. Do you have questions about headshots, resumes, reels, agents, managers, casting, auditions, or choosing materials? Over the course of six weeks, we will review this and more, culminating in a practice industry meeting. Working as a group, we’ll demystify the industry, utilize practical tools, and clarify your next steps in the business of acting.
