The Fargo Film Festival is proud to announce a unique addition to its educational programming with a workshop designed to assist aspiring actors in navigating the industry.
The Business of Acting with Alison Becker will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. in the Prairie Rose Room at the Radisson Fargo. General admission is $20 and student admission is $15.
In this two-hour intensive workshop, actress Alison Becker will take you through the do’s and don’ts of becoming a working actor. With more than 15 years of experience in the industry, Alison will offer a wealth of knowledge to those interested in diving into acting. This is not a class on acting technique; this is a big picture framework for how to get into the business — from getting an agent to booking jobs. Alison will walk you through the steps you should take to make a living as an actor.
Bring your questions, your enthusiasm, and a notebook – you’re gonna want to write some things down!
