Actor (and Aspiring Actor) Survey

by admin

Hi everyone,

As some of you may know, I’m the author and moderator of a no-nonsense online course on the business of acting called “Marketing Tools for Actors.”

For the past seven years, this course has been offered to rave reviews in over 1500 colleges and universities worldwide.

Well, my contract is up, so now I’m free to expand and rebrand the material…AND I NEED YOUR HELP.

If you are an actor or aspiring actor, I’d love to hear from you to find out your answers to the following questions:

* Why are you driven to become an actor?
* What is your biggest frustration as an actor or aspiring actor?
* What’s your biggest fear and/or anxiety?
* What’s your biggest problem and/or challenge?

* What do you want and aspire to more than anything else, as an actor or aspiring actor?
* What will your life look like if you achieve your wildest dream?
* What will it look like if you don’t achieve it?
* What do you need more than anything else to help you reach your objective?
* What could someone with an insider’s knowledge of the industry do to best assist you?

* Anything else about yourself that you feel like sharing? Your age, gender, geographic region, background, training, experience, skills, whatever….

Please email your name and your answers to tools4actors (at) slateplease (dot) com.

Just for fun, the contributors of the top three responses will win a 60-minute phone consultation with yours truly. I can provide guidance from a casting director’s perspective, no matter where you are in your career, and answer questions about breaking into the industry, increasing your marketability, moving to the next level, etc. A hundred bucks of advice for FREE, in appreciation for your help!

UPDATE: CONTEST CLOSED AS OF DECEMBER 5, 2008. STAY TUNED FOR CONTEST WINNERS!

Thanks in advance and please pass this information on to anyone who may be interested.
