Slow Season/New Training

Things have been sooooooooo slow lately! I mean damn! In the last month, I think I've been on maybe 5 castings/auditions. This is just bananas. I will admit, I haven't been submitting as much as I could be just because I'm not confident in my current headshots. So I guess it's all my fault, huh? When I shoot my new photos next week, get out of my way! :)

I've been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to commit to doing the 1 year apprenticeship program at The Barrow Group Theatre (work 8 hours a week in exchange for a free acting class every week) but I think I'm going to call today and set up an audition. The next session starts in September. I honestly think that this is the best option for me for so many reasons. Not only is the class "free" (no such thing as a free lunch right?) but it's working with some great, highly respected teachers in a highly respected theatre company. In addition to the great training, the students will have three different industry showcase opportunities throughout the program. I'm also looking for an ongoing program where I can have plenty of time to learn and grow as an actor. I want to be the best actor that I can possibly be and this is a great place to continue that quest.

I'm going to be speaking with my print agent at CESD to find out what I need to do, or at least what the process is like, to cross over to the on-camera division of the agency. I have so much that I need to be getting done over the next few weeks but I'm VERY excited!
