WORKING ACTOR Breaking in, Making a Living, and Making a Life in the Fabulous Trenches of Show Business

by | Read by David Dean Bottrell

Personal Growth • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

First and foremost, this audiobook is a "how to" survival manual for would-be performance professionals. Becoming a working actor does not necessarily mean becoming a star. It does mean becoming someone who can earn a living in show business. David Dean Bottrell offers his often humorous, sometimes sad, always honest bits of wit and wisdom through personal anecdotes and reminiscences from friends in the business. His natural style highlights his candid advice, and after 35 years in the entertainment industry, the material he covers only adds to his credibility. Filled with practical suggestions on "capturing the perfect headshot," "picking an agent," "audition do's and don'ts," and much more, Bottrell's tips and conversational delivery will make listeners feel they're getting advice from a trusted friend who knows the ropes.
