Ever feel like you blend in?

Like you’re not sure what to do to set yourself apart as an actor in Hollywood?

Every year, as the business changes, and tens of thousands more actors come to Hollywood seeking to work as a professional actor, it becomes more competitive.

You must use every possible competitive advantage you can get, find, or create.

Creating an Authentic Brand for yourself is the process of defining who you are — in a unique way — to Hollywood, so that they can see how you are unique from other actors of your same type.

An Authentic Brand for you as an Actor also presents you as a real, live human being!  Not just an automaton, perfect looking cardboard cut-out of a type.

This video will give you a simple way to test whether you’re on the right track with the brand your working on and creating for yourself as an actor.

Enjoy! And leave me a comment below on whether this idea makes sense!

How To Write More Authentic Characters In Your Screenplay

What is your true aspiration around screenwriting?

Whatever it may be, I’m sure you know it’s super competitive for everything related to it. And the more the years go by that I’ve had my business of helping screenwriters reach their script’s potential, the more I realize that your script MUST be as absolutely good as possible and be ready for the rare change you get someone to seriously consider it.

You can’t make some love your script or buy it, but you CAN do whatever is possible to KNOW that you’ve given it your best shot.

To that end, here’s my latest video on How To Create More Authentic Characters in Your Screenplay.   The point being, I will assess where your script is and how to make it as good as it can be… and really fulfill it’s potential.

Also, if you’re ready to get honest, supportive professional feedback, then let’s chat and see if I’m a good fit for you to have me do it.

If you’re the type who welcomes feedback and truly wants your script to be its best, I would love to work with you!
