Become a Working Actor in 2012

January 2, 2012

It’s no secret the last few years have been tough on the American economy. Many businesses have fallen or been shipped overseas, unemployment has flatlined at 9 percent, and big banks are stubbornly holding onto their money. Watching the news has been pretty dire. But there is a silver lining in this dark economic cloud. The entertainment industry is booming! That’s right, the business you are in as an actor or are aspiring to be in is doing just fine. It’s a well-reported fact more people are watching TV than ever, and add to that the inestimable amount of content people are watching online and through sources like Netflix, and you have a veritable boom in the acting field. All this bodes well for you, humble thespian. Production is happening at this very moment all over the world.

Make 2012 your year. Everyone’s always talking about unkept New Year’s resolutions. Make this the year you make good on the resolution to become a working actor.
