The Actor's Survival Kit
Miriam Newhouse & Peter Messaline
Published by Simon & Pierre
It gives actors fresh research from today's experience, new lists of Canada-wide contracts, and input from success stories
It speaks to a new generation of artists, giving them an up-to-date guide to the business of acting.
It addresses a range of new issues - performer websites, video self-production, and sending resumes and networking on the Internet
It also takes a fresh look at old ones - agents, self-promotion, and work opportunities for women and minorities
The authors learn by constantly talking to emerging artists about the problems they face in the business in Canada
Often those conversations begin with "You wrote the book!"
The authors are still receiving thanks from grateful artists who have been guided by this irreplaceable book over the years
