    Do indie films wherever you are, or near. You won't get paid, but you can get some great on set experience. Take classes. Do community theatre. Watch more acting videos. Watch more movies. Break-A-Leg.

    The #1 online course for actors is the Hollywood Winners Circle Academy Course. It is 6 hours of training in 65 videos, checklists and quizzes to help you get started as a professional actor and keep you on track. It walks you through training, learning what your TYPE is, getting the right headshots that match your type, It shows you how to create acting clips that match your type (which all agents and managers need from you) how to get an agent, how to meet casting directors, what to say to them, how to stay in touch with them and how to do your social media marketing like a pro actor! Actor who take the course have a clear strategy to become a working actor and are booking roles in TV and film plus getting signed to great agents! You can take the course at your own speed. You pay once and keep it forever. It is all online and it will give you a MAJOR advantage over actors who do not have it. $295 unlimited lifetime access. Http://

    The WINNERS INNER CIRCLE (WIC) is my private MASTERMIND facebook group where you can interact with me directly and on an on-going basis. People taking the course are in the groups and everyone I coach can join. I personally will go over your resumes, headshots, acting clips, marketing materials, help you write cover letters, answer your questions and give you ongoing mentorship to help you get started working in TV and Film. $190 for the year or $19 per month

    You need to learn about this business, how it works, what you have to do, how to do it... and knowing this will make you more competitive and more interesting to agents and managers and casting directors. You can become an actor without it but it will take you YEARS of learning these thing on your own- because one way or another you HAVE to DO everything I am teaching in the course to become a working actor - it's REQUIRED.

    Whether you want to learn it on your own... or get help... is up to you.

    Let me share what Actress Gina Cordon has to say about HWC:

    "I just wanted to personally share my fantastic experience with the HWC course. I have had many friends contemplate on purchasing it. I'm speaking to the actors that are thinking about getting the HWC course. Here's my experience....

    I signed up for HWC in Oct. 2018. I have had access to the course for a little over a year. What I'm about to share is NOT meant to be boastful by any means. I humbly acknowledge as a new actor, I have a LOT of work to do. Thanks to the course, I know exactly what I need to work on.

    I've pursued acting for a total of 3.5 years now. In the first 2 years (before HWC) I was constantly being misguided on how to get started as an actor. For example, I was told it was appropriate to list background work on a resume as long as you typed the word "featured" on it. Frustrated, I kept trying to figure everything out on my own (see my before and after resume). My first headshot was a modeling headshot (see photo). I actually made the horrible mistake of adding it to AA and never got a single audition. Now I know why....Some might say my new materials are not 100% perfect, but I've received more opportunities than before. I took a chance and purchased the HWC and it's changed everything for me. It was a dream roadmap. A compass that I desperately needed as a new actor to navigate in this crazy industry.

    Since purchasing the HWC in Oct. 2018 and changing my materials from the course recommendations, I have booked the following:

    - 1 commercial with a great speaking role

    - 2 short films

    - 2 industrials

    - 3 print shoots

    - 1 guest star role on TV network

    - 1 lead role in a feature film

    In addition to the bookings: I got new headshots, recorded a video game VO demo with an award-winning VO producer, created a website, business cards, postcards, one sheets, and thank you cards according to the HWC recommendations. I've attended the ABC's of Show Business with Wendy, Amy Lyndon's class, and a workshop with Tyler Perry's CD Rhavynn Drummer all within a year! I've had more audition opportunities with some dream CDs in this one year alone than I did in my first two years COMBINED. My next focus for 2020 is training more than ever, getting into classes, and recording clips for my type.

    My year is nothing compared to some of my peers. All of my friends that purchased the HWC are doing exceptionally well!!!! Their year was so much better than mine. I haven't heard a single complaint about the HWC. Not ONE person has stated any regret in getting the course. They are constantly training, going on auditions, and getting booked! It's just fascinating to watch their growth. They have the right marketing materials and classes. They're making super smart industry connections. I've noticed many HWC students don't ask many questions in TMFA. Most likely they already know the answers to many of the questions being asked in the group. Most of them are way ahead of the game. I'm just lucky to watch their growth and learn from them.

    It's up to you to really put the work in. It's worth every penny if you decide to make the smart decision in getting the HWC. I hope this helps someone that is on the fence of purchasing the course. It sure helped me and many others. Thanks for reading!" ♥️-Gina Cordon, Actress

    An 'actor' is the kind of 'attitude' we all need in order to communicate with each other most effectively.
    All the principles of acting, in real life and not in movies, are the principles of karma.
    The personality of any person is his/her understanding of his/her own role in the lives of perople surrounding him/her.
    A psychiatrist is the asshole who thinks otherwise. 😡 The worst profession ever.

    Everyone’s saying they’d been wanting to act since there were little but I decided I want to be an actor at 18. I’m 19 now. LMAOOO. I took two acting classes for English credit in high school and I was like hey... this shots kinda fun. So I joined my schools theatre group the next year (my senior year) and I got a part in the two plays i auditioned for. I was like hey... I’m not too bad at this! And now here I am in college majoring in dumb shit bc my mom and dad don’t think being an actor is realistic. 😬
