DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS THAT NEED DEFINITIVE ANSWERS?

- Do I need to have representation to be considered for high quality episodic television or film auditions?
- Is my agent and/or manager working hard for me and how do I really know?
- What does Casting really look for with actors and what can I do to help my child's career?
- Can I manager my child's career as a momager?
- How often do I need headshots and what's the truth about audition tapings? Is every submission seen?
- How can I tell if I'm wasting money and time and when is it best to nurture my child's career or let it go.

These are all great questions. You'll get these and your questions answered. You don't need to have your child present today, and if you're an adult actor, this is for you. We're limiting space because the price is right and the learning is essential. We'll see you there!
