Develop Your Workshop Strategy | Workshop Guru
We will be the first ones to tell you that casting director workshops can be an amazing resource for actors. But too often do we see actors who are just starting to workshop, or just moving to LA or NY, and see the list of the 100s of workshops on our site and… panic. Don’t worry, but definitely watch this episode of Guru Tips For Actors!

Learn the questions to ask and how to create a target list to find the casting directors that YOU should be getting in front of! You don’t need to be seen by everybody in town, you just need to be seen by the right people for you.

Not only is this video one of the most important ones we’ve made, we had such a fun time filming it, so be sure to watch until the end!

They are ready to make a greater impact, which looks like building communities of collaborators, creating their own opportunities, and developing residual income streams. Ajarae believes that actors play a huge role in bringing forth a reality where every being on the planet is safe and valued, and The Table empowers actors to claim their seat.

  1. Thx for the Video!

    I was wondering what to do if someone you have been heavily marketing to has their show get canceled? I don’t want all the marketing materials I’ve sent them to go to waste….. Any advice on how to keep momentum with them?

  2. Thank you for watching! Great question! In my opinion, a professional relationship that you’ve developed can never be a waste. Continue to nurture the relationship that you’ve built – don’t stop marketing to them. Try to add value – send them things they will appreciate, as well as your career updates. They will surely cast other projects in the near future, and you want to be top of mind when they start!
