The most powerful tool you have as an actor is YOU. In this workshop you’ll learn how to be “yourself" in every aspect of the business while also thriving within the confines of a typecasting industry. Landing an agent, getting auditions and booking work starts by embracing your type and knowing how the industry sees you. However, developing your unique niche is the secret to achieving your career dreams. 

In this workshop, type and image expert Mark Atteberry will walk you through a series of exercises that will help you to identify your type, define your image and create your own unique niche. You'll learn how to market yourself far more effectively, in a way that captures the attention of the industry and ensures that your career will be a long and successful one.
