The Actor Takes a Meeting - How to Interview Successfully with Agents, Producers & Casting Directors
Published by Silman-James Press
However, these important meetings are often unsuccessful because the actors present themselves inadequately
Lacking self-awareness and authenticity, actors frequently conduct themselves as victims or manipulators, which leads to their being seen as undesirable working partners, regardless of their acting abilities and credits
This is the first book to address the actor's self-presentation at an interview or meeting
It shows the actor how to be the host of a meeting and the initiator of an exciting experience that may lead to offers of representation, auditions, and project participation
In this book, actors will learn startling, myth-busting truths - they will learn that they will "blow it" if interviewers look at their resumes during meetings or if they answer questions with prepared riffs about themselves or if they are on their best behaviour!
Most importantly, they will learn how applying Stephen Book's practical teachings can bring about remarkable transformations of their meeting skills
