Read from the Book

When I wrote and published the first edition of my first book, "The Business of Acting: Learn the Skills You Need to Build the Career You Want" back in 2002, none of us working in the industry then could have imagined nor predicted the massive and drastic shifts that were headed for the business in the years that were to follow. The challenge for all of us was then, as it is now, to fully understand, embrace, adapt and adjust to those shifts. Arguably, five of the most impactful of these significant changes have been the SAG and AFTRA merger, the introduction and proliferation of both self-submission and self-tape auditions, the gross inequality in actor pay, the necessity to become a prolific and skilled Hollywood "hyphenate" and, perhaps most importantly, the impact of the #MeToo movement on an industry now struggling to redefine and rebrand a tainted image - and what that means for new-to-the-business actors and those formerly professional, "working" actors seeking to jumpstart their careers.We'll get into all of this in the 20 chapters that follow as we enter "The New Business of Acting: The Next Edition."
