  • Merging their acting technique and training with professional demands

  • Leveling-up their theatrical self-tapes 

  • Practicing virtual auditions and callbacks

  • Script Analysis

  • Making bold choices

  • How to bring your unique qualities to every role you play

  • Refine what kind of roles you can nail with a short amount of prep time

The program will help you align your industry materials to Your Actor's Wheelhouse through:

  • Long Term and Short Term Goal-Setting

  • Headshot and Resume Review

  • Reel Restructuring

  • Online Profiles Punch-Up (Actors Access, Backstage, IMDb)
