Wednesday, July 14, 2021, 3pm ET / 12pm PT

Price: Free

Creating a successful performance career can be somewhat of an elusive path. Most aspiring artists begin with the assumption that if they can quickly sign with a good agent or personal manager then their career will instantly take off.

Representation is an important component of any performance career but in many instances, it is not the most advisable first step.
Join career coach Annie Chadwick and Up-to-Date Actor creator, Abigail Hardin, for an in-depth approach to seeking representation and how to be a collaborator once you have it. 
Learn how to create a successful representation campaign and how the Up-To-Date Actor, a new digital resource, can aid you in targeting the agents/managers who are seeking your unique talent. 
In this workshop you will learn:
  • Five steps to take before approaching an agent or manager.
  • The most effective ways to begin your campaign for representation.
  • How can the Up-To-Date actor digital service help you target agents and managers that are a fit for your unique talent and career level.
  • What's the difference between working with a talent agent and a talent manager?
  • Do I need both a talent agent and a talent manager?
  • How to prepare for the interview.
  • How to be an effective collaborator with your representation.
All attendees, new to the Up-To-Date Actor, will receive a discount code for a 1-Month Full Access Free Trial to the Up-To-Date Actor.
