Being well-branded and communicating that brand efficiently to the specific buyers of that brand is critically important so that you can relax and concentrate on the craft that inspired you in the first place.
Join Los Angeles casting director Bonnie Gillespie (Los Angeles, CA) and a regional casting director for a dynamic actors’ workshop about the importance of branding yourself. Bring your questions and get ready to learn how to tier jump. Tackle the three biggest career mistakes in this hot mini-seminar brought to you by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation.
Questions that will be answered:
1. How can I discover my primary type?
2. How can I get on the radar of those who regularly cast my type?
3. How can I meaningfully connect with the buyers when "networking" feels so icky?
