Actor Salon Life + Career Mastery Class with Founder Brian Patacca

I'm the coach for the actor who doesn't have time to settle for anything short of major success - an actor who wants tangible results that resonate on a deeper level.

I work with experienced actors to fine-tune their careers so that they are focused, effective, and fulfilled. My Life + Career Mastery Class is a fast-paced, full day devoted to improving your results immediately. And my coaching provides a deep dive into your personal journey and desires.

This wholehearted, interactive workshop will cover a new look at your type, a game-changing database secret, improving your reel, representation, so you can make the best impression on the industry.


THERE WILL BE A CLASS BREAK for lunch during the afternoon

When you attend this info-packed, live training, you will learn:

Our simple way to put your reel together ...without going bankrupt
Don’t ditch that student film footage! We’ll teach how to make the most of the material you’ve got (whether it’s good, bad, ugly, or all three); how to lay your hands on the footage you “can’t” get; and how to know when your reel is done.

DATABASE (and soon-to-be fans!) 
How to create database that gets you auditions, offers and better representation
Identify, create, cultivate your personal database (it’s already way bigger than you think!). And let’s make it easy-to-use and simple to update while we’re at it!

Identify your type & learn how to use it to book you more jobs
What the $?!%# is your type? Learning your type frees you to book buttloads of jobs, but embracing your type can feel like an artistic prison. Our interactive exercise leaves you with an inspiring, clear-cut vision of your type, a gameplan for putting it into practice and a fresh, focused perspective that will make you sparkle in your next representation meeting, your next audition, and your next shoot.

WEBSITE, HEADSHOTS, POSTCARDS, ETC. (including more REEL stuff!)
How to make these tools effective and when to call it quits (when am I $?!%# done?)
These seemingly obvious marketing tools can lead to overwhelm when money and skill are beyond our grasp. We will give you masterful insights - that are specific to you and your goals! - so you know exactly what your marketing materials need to look like. What you need to do so your tools transform simple impressions to directly called-in auditions (and how not to waste time + energy overdoing it). 

Identify your goals + align your actions and attract the right collaborators + opportunities
You’re talented; you’re good at a lot of things... you *should* do them all, right? Too many of us waste time and energy wasted under the seemingly-smart catch-all goal: I want to act. Through our thought-provoking and active exercise, we will identify what you really want (tv, film, vo, improv, theatre etc). Once we identify your goals and release the by-products/hobbies, we’ll set you on a course to
freedom and success through actionable next steps. 

Who are your most powerful marketing targets
Surprise! It's not only casting directors. How you can reach out to the other power players. What's actually working for other actors? What’s worth sending before/after a workshop or showcase?

What *should* you do with your hard-earned money, precious energy + limited time?
Being & Doing - We get it. It’s not always the know-how and how-to that’s holding you back from your success. Who are you being when you take actions to have a fulfilling career and be your most powerful? What actions actually turn into auditions, booking, representation? This is where things get scary/exciting; pushing your boundaries to challenge the limiting beliefs that don’t serve you or your career.

A Note from Actor Salon Founder, Brian Patacca::

Does your Free Time = Freedom or Overwhelm?

I know a sure-fire way to ignite overwhelm in an actor... How about an extra 8 hours to work on your career?

Where do I start? I should work on my reel.Wait. Maybe I should put that audition on tape? Or email that agent my friend mentioned? Or no,I'm gonna sign up for that workshop.Oooh, I better go submit my headshot online (ugh... my headshot!).Uh oh, where did the day go?I should have started with my...

Sound familiar? It’s very easy to spin your wheels doing nothing – and everything – all at once. All that work, time, and money. And somehow at the end of the day… nothing has changed.

I want my days to feel fun, creative, and effective; hitting the sack at night with the fulfilling satisfaction that I did everything I could to get closer to my dreams... Don’t you?

Overwhelm is no fun and you know what? It isn’t getting you anywhere.
