THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECT is about presenting information fromtrusted industry professionals– not one, but over 100 of them. These are pros who have been there - done that. The BUSINESS side of the industry cannot be taught by individuals on the fringes of the industry! The BUSINESS side of the industry can only be taught by individuals who have spent years, if not decades, down in the trenches gaining first-hand knowledge and experience. Ask yourself this question: WHO WOULD YOU RATHER LEARN FROM?
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECT has brought together over 100 highly successful members of the entertainment industry. They are all experts in their field. These professionals - on average - have over twenty-five years of hard-earned experience behind them. Each of the industry veterans who appear on-screen were carefully selected because they possessed the kind of knowledge, information, insight and dedication that only years of experience can bring.
The real work of any actor is finding opportunities to work. When an actor is up on stage or in front of a camera – that is his or her reward for all the hard work they did to get that job! Without a complete understanding of the BUSINESS side of the industry, an actor won’t know what to do first – let alone how to find work! Looking for The Actor's Journey for Kids?
