Join us for our monthly event presented by the SAG-AFTRA L.A. Member Education Program where Shaan Sharma, Backstage contributor, working actor, acting coach, veteran commercial casting session director, and SAG-AFTRA Conservatory Committee member will be sharing everything you need to know in order to successfully pursue a commercial and on-camera acting career!
He will cover topics such as the huge differences between auditioning and casting for the theatrical and commercial sides of the business, the entire process of casting through booking, online casting services, headshots, reels, branding, representation and so much more. You’ll even pick up a few insider auditioning and casting tips. Additionally, Sharma will expand upon his “4 Steps to Becoming a Working Actor” as well as his, “The 4 Pillars of a Joyful Acting Journey.” To supplement this information, he will also provide a FREE PDF copy of his book, Commercial Acting in L.A.: A Session Director’s Guide, as a gift to all attendees.
