An actor can have all the training and talent in the world - however, if that actor cannot couple that training
and talent with the requiredBUSINESS ACUMENnecessary to launch, manage and sustain a professional
career - that actor's career is over before it even begins!
ACTING IS A BUSINESS -
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECTisnot about teaching the "art and craft" of acting.
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECT isnot about teaching "performance skills".
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECTisabout teaching actors the highly specialized
INDUSTRY RELATED BUSINESS SKILLSthat go hand-in-hand with their training in the performance arts.
THE NEED FOR A PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM RELATED TO THE BUSINESS ASPECTS
OF AN ACTOR'S CAREER -
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECTwas created because the basic and advancedBUSINESS SKILLS
(the logistical, strategic, financial, political and networking skills) required to secure professional level work
in the entertainment industryare not taughtby any of the colleges, junior colleges, universities and private
academies currently training actors in the performance arts. The focus of these schools is on developing an
actor's talent and acting skills. After initial training is completed, actors are left to their own devices to find a path into the entertainment industry. Most don't! There are literally hundreds of thousands of highly trained actors mired in a perpetual limbo somewhere between training and actual entry into the industry.
This brand new and revolutionary program was created as a vehicle for the "experienced" generation of actors to share a "lifetime" of information, knowledge, insights, wisdom and skills with the "new" generation of actors who are currently attempting to launch viable careers in worlds of stage, motion picture and television. These Pros are not college professors or acting instructors far removed from the mainstream of the industry - these are Industry Veterans who have vast "documented" work histories and decades of experiencegained from working down in the trenches of the industry.
This distinguished group of Pros includes: directors, producers, executive producers, show-runners, casting directors, talent agents, talent managers, an incredible cross section of highly recognizable actors - and, the Presidents of two of Hollywood's most powerful unions: The Screen Actor's Guild and The Director's Guild of America.
Over 35 of these Professionals has been nominated for - or won - Academy, Emmy, Golden Globe, C.L.I.O.
and/or other prestigious industry awards! THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECT presents today's actors with a cutting-edge "alternative" to spending years (if not decades) down in in the bowels of the industry struggling to learn the elusive BUSINESS SKILLS needed for entry and success. Exhaustively researched, this is a much needed program is designed to expedite the learning curve for all actors by providing actors with a virtual guidebook and a roadmap to follow.
This is unique opportunity to learn from 100 Actors and Entertainment Industry Professionals who have been there, done that... andSUCCEEDED! Let their paths to success be your roadmap and guidebook.
