PANEL DISCUSSION: Where the Money Resides: How to be a “Consistent” Working Actor


Inspiring Actors, Filmmakers and Writers want to be a part of the Entertainment Industry and they want to be recognized for their work. Winning an award such as an Oscar, an Emmy, a Golden Globe, a SAG Award or a Tony signify your peers acknowledge and appreciate your work.  However, some never experience this kind of respect.

Industry professionals will pull back the curtain and help you peer through the lens—giving you a ‘behind the scenes skinny’ on how things really work in the worlds of Stage and Film. This is an interactive panel with Q &A between the audience and industry professionals.
