THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® PROJECT was founded by
The purpose of THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® PROJECT was
to fill an enormous educational gap in the way actors are educated. Actors spend 2 to 4 years and $5,000 to $60,000
to learn everything about the "art" and "craft" of acting (the performance skills) at Colleges, Universities
and Acting Academies. Unfortunately, the schools that teach acting teach little or nothing
about the inner workings of the entertainment industry and the required Business and Career Development
Skills (the non-performance skills) that enable actors to launch, advance and sustain viable
careers in the entertainment industry.
Because of this educational deficiency, 99% of all trained and talented
actors never assimilate into the mainstream of motion picture and television industries.
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® PROJECT was founded to produce a pair of educational programs
that would allow a select group of 100 distinguished and highly experienced entertainment industry veterans an educational platform
to teach the required industry-related BUSINESS and CAREER DEVELOPMENT SKILLS that enable actors to quickly and effectively launch, advance
and sustain careers in today's highly competitive entertainment
industry. These are BUSINESS SKILLS that are not taught at the schools, colleges, universities and academies
that train actors in the art and craft of acting and performance skills
TWO PROGRAMS AVAILABLE:
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® is
an 8-Volume - 10 Hour Long DVD Program that is designed to educate adult actors
(age 18 years old and up).
"THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY for KIDS" is a 5-Volume - Five Hour Long DVD Program that is designed to educate the PARENTS of child and teen actors (through 17 years of age)
Both DVD Programs were produced and directed by Mr. Livingston
through his Los Angeles based production company, FIRST TEAM PRODUCTIONS.
The goal of THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® PROJECT is to produce a new generation of enlightened
actors who are fully informed about the entertainment industry and
who possess the necessary knowledge, abilities and business skills to control and self-direct their own careers with total confidence from day one in the industry.
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® PROJECT incorporates the knowledge
and experience of over 100 Industry Professionals -Directors, Producers,
Show Runners, Executive Producers, Casting Directors, Talent Agents, Talent Managers, an amazing cross-section
of highly recognizable Actors - and the Presidents of two of the industry's key unions (SAG / AFTRA and
The Director's Guild of America).
If knowledge is power, then THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY® PROJECT is the ultimate resource
for actors of all ages. |
