Starting in 2011, we began traveling across North America to host Actor Symposiums, a series of educational events tailored to actors in their respective locations.  These sessions provide performers with valuable information about the business and art of professional acting.

The Breakdown Services Actor Symposium Series consists of two kinds of events, Destination Events and Focus Events.  Click the links below to learn about past and upcoming events of each type.

auditorium 2DESTINATION EVENTS are full-day affairs, consisting of multiple panels featuring speakers offering varying perspectives on a wide range of subjects including getting and keeping an agent, recording self-taped auditions, marketing yourself to Casting Directors, and much more.  Passes are sold per seminar, so participants have the option of going to as many, or as few, panels as interest them.

FOCUS EVENTS are shorter, single panel or single speaker events, generally taking place on an evening.  These pinpoint one subject and drill down to get into the nitty-gritty specifics and hard facts of acting professionally.
