The Actor's Survival KitBook - 1999
The Actor's Survival Kit has been the backbone of Business of Acting courses and a constant resource for its many readers across Canada. But, after seven years and two editions, the business has changed.
Peter Messaline and Miriam Newhouse have revised the original Actor's Survival Kit and addressed a number of issues and areas of current concern. These include: Online Casting - the happening thing, or still a scam? Megamusicals - they swept the country, but will they provide work in the future? Motion capture, realtime animation -opportunity or problem? Women and Minorities - have they replaced the rule of dead white males? Multi-Media Productions - ACTRA is moving, but is it soon enough?
The third edition of The Actor's Survival Kit gives the actor fresh research and today's experience, new lists of country-wide contacts, and input from current success stories.
