Sometimes as an actor you can feel like you are on the side lines of the industry; perhaps you are not getting the opportunities or the meetings you want or you just don’t know how to use your time/money effectively.
This event is about helping your get back in the drivers’ seat as an actor. Not only will you leave with a plan of action, but you will also have the opportunity to ask questions that you have always wanted to ask.
