NYCAP WORKSHOPS - April 6th, 7th, 8th
Hey, SAG performers! Are you represented by a terrific, franchised agent that you believe does not get the recognition that he or she deserves? Is your agent always there for you, guiding your career, advising you, watching your back, and generally being a mensch without much fanfare or praise? Well, now is your chance to change all of that!
(March 30, 2010)- Screen Actors Guild and Screen Actors Guild Foundation will present "An Evening with Television Casting Directors" live, online and free on Tuesday, March 30, 6-8 p.m. (PT).
This LifeRaft Live Stream event will feature a stellar panel of television casting directors who will share the inside track on what it takes to be effective in the audition room as well as your odds of getting the job, what it takes to earn a living in television, what bargaining power you or your agent have with a television contract, and more!
