It's time to get cast. Here's how---introducing our
Summer 2018 Industry Workshop.
We are going to teach you the sh*t they don't teach you in school!
All the secret insider industry hacks...shhh...
When is this happening, you might be asking, and what will I be learning? I'm so happy you asked.
Thursday June 14--6:00-8:00 PM--First week: Typing/Branding
Thursday June 21--6:00-8:00 PM-- Second week: Materials/Marketing yourself within your brand (headshots, resumes, reels, websites)
Thursday June 28--6:00-8:00 PM-- Third week: Audition Prep (casting sites, tracking CDs, following up, building relationships with the CDs that are right for you, choosing audition material within your brand to make you stand out)
Thursday July 5 --6:00-8:00 PM--Fourth week: Submitting to Reps and Beyond (Cover letters, how to interview, the day-to-day, budgeting, quality of life)
What you'll get:
A personalized binder filled with an industry tracker, typing/branding sheets, representation submission tracker, audition tracker, industry accolades template, resume template, goals template.
The total cost for the workshop is $400, which comes to $100 per session. If you refer a friend who ends up taking the workshop, your workshop cost will be decreased to $300. Yay!
To give you an idea of price, another leading typing/branding woman in Los Angeles charges $150/15 mins. Yikes!
But, Alex, what if I don't live in LA. What do I do????
Skype. Easy peasy.
So, Alex, what if I do live in LA? Where is this happening?
My home. With snacks.

Not going to lie, I'm pretty obsessed with subscription boxes. It makes me feel like I'm getting a gift--even if I'm the one who bought it! Right now, I love FabFitFun. Every three months you will receive a fabulously curated box full of fitness and fashion finds, worth over $200.

My other favorite subscription box at the moment is my Sunbasket food delivery. Each week I am sent a box of fresh ingredients and 3-4 recipes that are tailored to my diet preferences. They offer everything from paleo, vegan, gluten-free, lean and clean..you get it! It has made a huge difference in my health--between teaching at four universities and acting, I need something quick, easy, and healthy.

The ACTIVE ACTOR
You are probably wondering this blog is about. Well, it's about anything that everything that I find inspiring, helpful, and curiosity building.
Curiosity is my favorite state of being, and I've become a treasure hunter and a trash hoarder, collecting all sorts of articles, artwork, and accessories that fuel my inspiration and creativity.
This will also be a place for me to document my life as an actor and coach in Los Angeles. If performing is your passion, I hope that this blog becomes a place for you to learn from my mistakes, grow from my accomplishments, laugh at my witless choices, and share in this crazy, unpredictable, beautiful, life in the arts.
