HAPPY NEW YEAR! The new year always feels like a fresh start. We get the chance to turn the proverbial page, set new goals and commit to new habits.

After taking some time to rest, reflect and reconnect with family over the past few weeks, I am ready to hit the ground running in 2019. Let’s make this the best year ever! (We say that every year, and it can be true every year!)

January is also an exciting time as we’re entering network pilot season. Pilot season can sometimes feel like a mysterious time of year… some actors feel like they are a part of it, and some don’t. A few seasons ago, I created the #PilotSeasonSeries to help you better understand and prepare for the process. I want to make sure you have the busiest season yet, so be sure to watch all of the videos, and then join us for our in depth, live training next week! (hint: the details are at the bottom!)

First check out Volume 1 on How to Prepare for Pilot Season, and make sure you have all your ducks in a row:

Then watch Volume 2 to learn How to Research Your Pilot Auditions… when you’re going in for shows that don’t even exist yet!

Volume 3 is for that magical moment when you get that audition for a pilot. Watch and learn How to Prepare for Your Pilot Season Audition:

And, finally, watch Volume 4 to make sure you fully understand the Pilot Casting Process:
