MR. LIVINGSTON can boast a career of fifty plus years in the entertainment industry - including a phenomenal
twelve-year run as "CHIP DOUGLAS" on one of television's most popular and durable series, "MY THREE SONS". The sit-com is television's second-longest running comedy series and has been broadcast continuously

First Team Productions currently has two other feature films, "BARSTOW" and "THE FIRST
TIME", in development and slated for production in 2013. Mr. Livingston also works as a free-lance
Director and Producer.
THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECT was founded by Mr.
The purpose of THE ACTOR'S JOURNEY PROJECT was to fill an enormous educational gap in
the way actors are educated. Actors learn everything about the "art" and "craft" of acting
and "performance skills" - but little or nothing about the inner workings of the industry and
the required "NON-PERFORMANCE" SKILLS that enable actors to quickly and effectively launch, advance and sustain viable
careers in the entertainment industry.
Because of this educational deficiency, there is a 99% failure rate
of trained and talented actors assimilating into the motion picture, stage and television industries.
The Actors 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:
ACTOR'S JOURNEY" is an Eight 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 Five 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. |
