Actually if you don't have any television experience this is the best course to start out with. You won't have to break any bad habits that develop when you don't actually know what you're doing! LOL. Each module will walk you through many different aspects of acting for the camera. You will be able to replay all of the video trainings and put what you learn into action. You can avoid the years of confusion so many actors face when just starting out. I will be able to guide you through this process so you don't appear to be "green" at your first few auditions.
First of all...OKAY?! Zoom after zoom after zoom. Makes you want to throw your laptop across the room! LOL. But what tangible steps did you REALLY walk away with though? No shade to any other coaches or casting directors. I've sat in on some pretty informative panels. But here's what you need to know. Book More TV is not a one day, or even a one weekend workshop. We will spend over 5-weeks together. You gain access each week to hours of content and guidance to help you to specifically book more TV. You can work through all the modules at your own pace and you even get to download the material to review for years to come. Sure, anyone can teach a "self-tape" class and tell you what to purchase for your home studio set up. Heck, I give that information away for free on my own YouTube channel. But all the fancy equipment in the world can't help a poor performance. Your ring light can't compensate for a lack of character building or mastery of the camera. Consider those previous zoom classes your warm up...your appetizer...for the REAL meal that is guaranteed to fill you up.
Absolutely not! The tips and tricks that I share with you will be useful to you at any stage of your career. In fact, it's my most experienced clients who often get the most value because it's harder to find your own blindsopts. Yes, you may not be new to acting, but mastering the medium of television is a different beast. Knowing how to really grab a role for yourself and make it memorable takes repetition. The way you show up for a co-star is totally different than how you should show up for a series regular role. I plan on covering all of that because I've had those experiences. Also, if your booking ratio is inconsistent, I guarantee that there is a missing link. My goal is to help you find it.
Having an agent won't magically help you book more TV. An agent or manager will help to open doors for you and get you appointments. But what good is an audition with a major casting office when you're not prepared? Without proper training, you run the risk of putting a bad taste in the mouths of major decision makers. The skills you will learn in Book More TV will always be with you, regardless of who represents you. The last thing you want to do is get signed by a talent agency only to get dropped 3 months later because you could not execute on camera.
You can spend as much time as you need watching each week's training videos. That's on you. But, know this... A new module will be made available to you every Monday for 5 weeks. Watch those when you feel like it. The monthly LIVE Q&A sessions and pop up hot seat coaching calls that are included in this program last approximately 2 hours. You are not required to be on the entire time or at all for that matter. However, if I were YOU, I'd be there. These sessions will be your opportunity to get clarity on anything you've learned.
Well, just to be clear, this course is not designed to teach you how to act or teach you the fundamentals of acting. You absolutely should get in an in person class or an acting school for that. The promise of Book More TV is to provide techniques to successfully act for the CAMERA. And I get it. It seems weird to not be in a room with other actors. But honestly, taking this class online is very helpful because everything I teach you will be executed ON CAMERA. Then you can practice what I show you...on camera. Sometimes being in "the room" can distract you of your real job...working the camera and drawing the audience in by becoming great friends with the camera lens. I think you will be surprised at just how effective learning online can be. Not to mention, I've coached tons of actors right from my computer and they've been booking!
I know timing can be tricky and things may feel tight for you right now. But how many gigs could you possibly book between now and...whenever? What I know for sure is this: we make time for what we really want and we find money for what we really want. What do YOU really want? 'Cuz let's get real. One union co-star (even at scale) will give you a return on your investment from this class.
There's absolutely no way that I can GUARANTEE that you will book a television gig after my class. Here's why; all I can do is share the tips that have worked for me and helped me book over 60 gigs so far. How YOU execute what I teach you is out of my control. And let's be real...whether we book a gig or not is still out of our control. But what we CAN control is how we show up and how we prepare. Our job is to book the ROOM and I promise to give you the tools to do that. Now I have a question for you. Are YOU willing to give this course 100% of your energy so you can get the results you desire? If your answer is yes, then I want to invite you to trust this process. You have a gift that the world needs to see. What is that worth to you?
