I’ve quoted Bob Fraser here quite a number of times, mainly because he has a lot of intensely valuable insights that he’s willing to share freely based on his multiple decades wearing just about every hat there in the acting business. While his weekend workshops called An Actor Works are targeted at on camera and stage actors, I’m confident there will be a ton of valuable information for anyone in the voice acting field as well. Full details are available at the An Actor Works web site.
If you’re not sure whether this is for you or not, here is a long quote from an email Bob sent a couple of days ago. It gives you just a flavor of what he’s all about …
Today I want to deliver some good news. This is especially important in the face of the weeks worth of ‘worry and concern’ being delivered to us by the media lately.
Here’s the reality for those of us who depend on show business for our living: The entertainment industry has always thrived in economic tough times.
The crash of 1897 ushered in the golden age of theatre and vaudeville. The crash of 1929 was the beginning of Hollywood’s most prolific years. The ‘downturn’ of 1987 resulted in several years of increased production and the explosion of big-budget projects.
In other words, history is on our side.
Which brings me to this: If you’re ready to really start taking steps toward improving your acting career results – now is an especially good time to invest in your business.
Many actors have asked when I was going to teach a class or have a workshop – and the answer is … ‘NOW.’
On November 8th and 9th – and December 6th and 7th, I’ll be holding a weekend intensive ‘acting career lab’ called An Actor Works. It’s going to be an exciting and life-changing program, and I hope that you can grab one of the 24 seats available at each weekend event.
In order to learn more, I urge you to get over to the site and see what is going to be included in this ‘weekend of change.’
And please, for goodness sake, don’t procrastinate regarding this decision to invest in your business – this email is going out to more than 7000 actors and there ARE only 24 seats available at each event.
Again the site is An Actor Works.
