With less work and more actors it's tough being an actor and with cuts on the way it's about to get tougher. So the last thing you need to do is to send out the wrong material to the wrong people at the wrong time. This workshop deals with the importance of good self-marketing, how to identify your strengths and how to use various media effectively. All students will receive an appraisal of their CV and photo, both from their fellow students and from the tutor. Topics covered include: a “good” CV, the right photo, how to write a covering letter, Spotlight, networking, how to be your own agent and The Curse of the Last Rolo. All participants must bring a copy of their current photo and CV.
