The Working Actor – Creativity across all Mediums!

Actors bring a unique toolkit and voice to the cinematic arts. An actor’s week can consist of S/FX laden green-screen work; starring in micro-budget indies and web series; feature film day players; and TV series lead roles. Any way the work presents itself, versatility equals longevity. And in a challenging and competitive marketplace the actor’s toolkit often reaches beyond performance and into writing, directing and producing. Vancouver actors must manage and deploy their ever-expanding creative skills depending on the project role, medium and budget. Hear from those actors who’ve leveraged their talents in a variety of roles and across a number of mediums and built exciting and sustainable careers. Getting your project off the ground and accessing Vancouver’s top talent is also easier than you think! Moderator: Oliver Linsley.
