A hands on session for any actor at any stage in their career who feels they need a bit of support and morale boosting. Gemma, owner of act up has worked as a casting director, producer and agent and has herself survived in the industry for over 20 years.
She’ll talk you through the whole process of the industry, remind you of the hidden truths behind it all and offer advice on how to seek work, look for an agent (if applicable), and how to market yourself more effectively.
She’ll switch your way of thinking, so you see it from an employers point of view as well as from an actors. The workshop will be tailored to suit the needs of the individual participants, so do come armed with lots of questions as well as your CV and headshot, please keep them digital.
So the date is Saturday 25th January (3.00-5.00pm) 2020 at amazing Harry’s Chocolate Emporium in Tooting all for £19.00 if you pay in advance or £25 on the door. Yes chocolate, so as we talk you’ll have plenty of opportunity to tuck into cake, chocolate and more chocolate if you wish, this will be an additional cost between yourself, Harry’s and your appetite that day.
