Acting In Los Angeles pt. 1, The Business Of Acting
The only one of its kind on the market, the Canadian edition of The Business Of Acting in Los Angeles lifts the curtain on what it’s really like to pursue acting as a foreigner in the entertainment capital of the world.
Jam-packed with resources, this e-book addresses local business practices (casting directors and agents) and the industry’s culture, as well as the different reality Canadian actors must adapt to in order to work and succeed in Los Angeles. Since Los Angeles has the biggest acting market on the planet, this e-book is a must for those who are serious about acting in any market.
This entire four-part-series is a bible for newly-arrived Canuck actors, as well as those who are currently in the process of applying for their work visas. It’s even helpful for actors who plan on applying for a visa in the future. Aside from the business of acting in Los Angeles, the books cover immigration visas for actors (O-1s and EB-1s or green cards), cross-border accounting for the working actor, and the nuts and bolts of relocating to Los Angeles (finding a home, importing cars, etc.)
