I watched your introduction video today and have seen some information online about
what you do. I was wondering if you think this course is suitable for a child actor
who has absolutely no experience as yet but is very interested in starting a career
My son is 11 years of age and has a passion for acting. I have joined up with
‘starnow’ agency and am waiting to have professional photos taken for him for a good
headshot. We have one audition booked so far but we have only been with the agency
for about a week so far.
What kind of help would you recommend for my son?
I hope you can help.
Thank you so much for your time in advance.
ANSWER: See here below. So as not to reveal her name and the name of her son, I will refer to them as “Barbara” and “John”.
First of all, thank you for contacting me and for your
trust that I might be able to answer your question.
I would love to be able to have another person in the program,
but NO, this course is not suitable for an 11 year old, HOWEVER,
if you want to do “whatever you can” to help John, I would strongly
recommend that you take the course.
ONE OF THE BIGGEST MYTHS
You see, one of the biggest myths about starting an acting career is that having an agency represent you will get you to stardom or even just get you acting work. Barbara, that is so not true. It takes much more than that. While I truly admire your wanting to help out your son, but I know from many years of experience, that your passion and love for him is not enough. I strongly recommend THAT YOU LEARN THE BUSINESS of acting.
Like I always tell people, you don’t necessarily have to get all the information you need from me and my step-by-step, easy to follow home-study course, but Barbara, if you really want to help your son, I recommend you get that information from somewhere.
You can spend time looking around the internet and asking people to teach you and informing yourself, or you can get it all in one place and have someone take you through all that you need to know, step-by-step.
If you would like to discuss further, let me know.
SOME HELPFUL INFORMATION
In the meantime, here are some links for you that might help you.
This one is the sales page for my course.
Scroll down to the bottom and look at what is in each module. Again, whether you take my course or get the information from some other source, realize that it is the information you will need to be well-informed and in a position to help you son in the best way possible.
Here is another link you might find helpful:
What you will find on that link may seem like a lot of good information and it is in my opinion, however, it doesn’t replace step-by-step instruction and monthly coaching sessions on skype. It’s up to you.
Barbara, I’m at your disposal and thank you again for contacting me.
Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck for your son’s acting career.
