Create a plan to achieve your acting career goals.

Carolyne Barry wrote Hit the Ground Running to empower and guide actors. In this workshop, HTGR serves as the textbook to prepare the new actor and to refocus the experienced actor whose career needs a little kick. At the end of this workshop, each actor will have a clear five year plan and a blueprint for personalized marketing materials and business essentials, as well as a strategy for submissions and auditions. Then, one month later, each student has the option to meet one-on-one with Kimberly to evaluate their progress and keep them on track.

Material covered includes: creating a budget, determining your type, headshot success secrets, resumes, interning, packaging you as the product, cover letters, choosing teachers and types of training, networking, securing agents and managers, and creating the career you want. Plus extensive, valuable tips and techniques for commercial and theatrical auditions.

  • Week 1: Define your goals and understand the business of acting
  • Week 2: Create your personalized plan for success
  • Week 3: Be competitive in a crowded marketplace
  • Week 4: Get the job
  • Week 5: Put it all together for a longterm career
  • Month 3+ (optional add-on): Evaluate and keep running

Tuition includes a copy of the book and a new class workbook for materials, worksheets and homework assignments. Students should be prepared for extensive homework.
