Filmbase Announce 'Actors One-To-One: Career Advice' Series
26 Jan 2018 :
Filmbase have announced the first in a series of one-to-one Actors’ Caree Advice days. In private, actors will receive career advice in a one-to-one session that will be focused on the actor’s unique needs and goals.

The session will look at where participants are now and where participants want to be. Taking part in filmbase’s private one-to-one sessions will help participants recognise where they are in their career, and in turn help to address specific areas that need more attention or have slipped under the radar.

These half-hour sessions offer a relaxed and supportive environment in which to get some honest answers. Topics include, but are not limited to, CVs and headshots, agents, showreels, voicereels, letter writing, marketing strategy and getting work in the UK.
