Business of Acting

Master the Business of Acting in this 8-class course!

Being a successful actor takes more than just talent. Understanding the industry inside & out is crucial for any aspiring industry professional. The Business of Acting Intensive will equip actors with the essential knowledge and strategies to navigate getting auditions, landing agents, impressing casting directors, and nailing their job on set. From securing representation and booking their first job to becoming series regulars, every step of a professional actor’s journey is clearly outlined in this comprehensive guide to industry success.

Through lectures, discussions, group exercises, at-home assignments, and individualized, personal assessments, the class will cover the following:

  • Winning Headshots & Demo Reels

  • Booking with Self-Tapes

  • Identifying Your Type

  • Finding the Best Reps

  • Writing the Perfect Cover Letter

  • Professional & Eye Catching Resumes

  • Agent & Manager Interviews

  • Networking

  • Moving from Co-Star to Guest Star/Series Regular

  • Understanding On Set Terms & Culture

  • And More!

Our team of instructors includes Talent Manager Kyle Fritz who offers actors knowledge and experience regarding the business of acting and what it takes to succeed and Actor, Writer, & Director Jonathan Del Arco (Star Trek, Nip/Tuck, Major Crimes) who brings a unique perspective to the course fueled by 30+ years of experience as an actor on major productions and iconic sets.

This is not a job interview or audition. The presence of a Talent Manager is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment, representation, auditions, or referrals for obtaining employment or talent agents or talent managers. The intent of the class is solely educational. Attending a workshop, class, lecture, or one-on-one private session (collectively “classes”) is not a way to obtain employment or representation as an actor. Such contact as you may have with a Talent Manager during classes rarely results in any further contact with that Talent Manager or any company affiliated with that Talent Manager.
