Let’s Start With My ProActor Workshop, May I?
I realized that most people that offer actors classes, workshops, etc are really fakirs, posing as experts. Their information that they offer is often not correct. Or not comprehensive.
(Too blunt? Well, look carefully. It’s just true. You will see this a lot more clearly, after you become a professional.)
Or they are very creative with their imaginations, and great at social sites, marketing. They really don’t offer, nor can they, information that will educate any actor on how to become a professional actor.
I also realized (especially now that I am talking to so many actors online) just how much mystery and misconception is out there, at every acting level, about the acting profession. Most actors spend most of their career, some spend all of their career; on the wrong path, that will never lead them into The Industry. They never knew the way, but they thought they did.
I am talking about actors who get good training somewhere, maybe even college or grad school, or have a good coach! Still they don’t have a clue about what it specifically takes, to become a professional actor. Sometimes, they are led astray by a self-designated expert.
Well, as you may know if you follow me on Twitter, or on this blog; especially if you have come to one of my weekly events:
- Streaming Sunday Brunch With Dana
..You may have had a glimpse into my encyclopedia of a brain, or my racer-rapid assessment skills.
Have I said that it will be live, interactive, streaming, and personal? In other words, I will look at your “look”, we will type your type, your photos, your reel (if you have one. If not, you will learn how to get a great one, and it will be tailored to your strengths…) We will get everything and all that is essential, to professional level.
You will learn about getting an agent in the real world of acting, and about the different kinds, and different levels. You will be setting your sites on specific ones, the kind that can get you the real auditions.
I will tell you what personal and professional traits real successful working actors all have, and we will, together, work on those same skills and traits, for you to have.
I will tell you how to build your resume with the right kind of acting work, so that you will have a resume of professional level, and–sorry, but we will remove stuff too–the kind of items that I know are actually hindrances. Red flags, that spell “amateur” to the real agents and the real casting directors.
We are going to “lay tracks” and define the path, that is a real working actor path. We are going to talk about time, and effort, and get very succinct, because time is precious. And it sometimes takes a lot of time to get to the goal, so if an actor wastes time on the wrong thing, or the wrong skills, or the wrong people; it can just wind up being too late, sometimes…Most of the time.
I will tell you how every aspect of the business works. For real. And you will leave this workshop savvy, and smart. Focused, and knowledgable.
We will work on your skills, your focus, your mindset, your individual plan. And much more,which I will not post publicly, for every other site to copy. (Once again.)
For the first time, I am offering my experiences, my personal hard-knocks, observations, and assessment; from all my years on the inside, when I was a very successful working actress, and voiceover. My experience as an acting teacher, and as an acting coach.
I didn’t have a relative in the business, I didn’t have any easy breaks. I made it. All within the same system that exists now, and with all the same kinds of hurdles. I know them well. I know how to surmount them.
WHY, NOWHERE ELSE, IS THERE A COMPREHENSIVE PROFESSIONAL ACTING WORKSHOP?
Because no one else has been a professional actor, and then came out the other side, and shared the information.
It’s that simple.
Here I am.
But I may not want to do this again, so catch it now. And do I mean that.
There is so much info and you will be doing work, changing, morphing. It will change your life, and after this, you may be able to take on anything. Because acting careers are not easily made, not usually.
And, there are systems, methods, and secrets. Yes, there really are.
(And I learned them well, right at the Hollywood School Of Hard Knocks. It took years to earn my ‘diploma’…)
I will take only small groups, and try to group according to professional level and experience.
It will be supportive, it will be rigorous, it will be personal. In other words, I will share my personal information, from all that I learned on the inside, and how to get there! And I will take each person, personally, and will get them up to snuff.
