The Cavalry Isn’t Coming: Why Actor Entrepreneurship Is Essential For A Modern Career
It is the Equity Foundation’s plan to host this event at least four times each year so Equity members have an opportunity to consider and reflect on their career in a supportive environment. There will be a different group of actors each time. Successful applicants will be asked to provide some information prior to the workshop and have a definite project or goal in mind that you can all work on. Materials and resources will be sent to you prior the workshop so you can hit the ground running for the workshop. Please don't apply unless you are prepared to do some preliminary work. For most actors our passion guides us, however our inability to activate it can destroy us. Join actor and The HubStudio founder, Oliver Wenn in a creative workshop and discussion forum on the tools that give the power back and help actors find success on their own terms.
The workshop will cover these six main areas:
Section One: Introduction
Section Two: Thats not a knife. The Australian industry, and where its headed.
Section Three: Authenticity & finding your mojo - mindset & skill set.
Section Four: Its all about me - process not perfection.
Section Five: What’s my project / what’s my plan?
Section Six: You tell me. Let’s make next step.
