Actors got a realistic look, from varied perspectives, at how the business really works and how to use this valuable information to further their career.

They also got an honest and revealing behind the scenes look at what the Casting Director sees.

  • See where your submission goes and how to have an impact on how it’s viewed
  • Find out what makes a good headshot and why you need one
  • What does your headshot look like in a sea of submissions
  • See how additional media attached to your profile moves you to the top of the submission list
  • The importance of succinct notes and clips
