GO PRO with Lana Veenker

Sometimes talented actors blow their chances, because they don’t understand that it takes more than being a good actor to book jobs.  It takes the mindset and focus of a pro.  This is not an acting or auditioning workshop.  Instead, Lana’s most popular course provides simple, proven techniques to help actors go from amateur to professional.  This workshop is appropriate for actors 18 and older, as well as parents of child actors. (Actors age 14 to 17 accepted, if they’re serious about pursuing a career in acting and have prior experience.)

Topics include:

  • Taking your career into your own hands
  • Making yourself invaluable to agents, casting directors, producers and directors
  • Productivity and creativity
  • Marketing and branding
  • Mapping out a strategy to achieve career and lifestyle goals

 

AUDITIONING FOR TV & FILM

Try your hand at auditioning with real film and television scripts.  Learn techniques and get feedback on how to improve your chances at getting hired.  This workshop is appropriate for actors 18 and older. (Actors age 14 to 17 accepted, if they’re serious about pursuing a career in acting and have prior experience.)
