Are you READY for Representation? We are very excited to offer this new REP PREP workshop which is designed to sharpen your interview skills and put together your best marketing package. Our special guest instructor is manager, FERNANDO A. BUITRAGO of ZERO GRAVITY MANAGEMENT, who specializes in developing new actors toward successful careers.
OBJECTIVE OF INTENSIVE:
Each student will be taught as though they were signed with Fernando for representation. The goal will be preparation for a simulated signing meeting with a TOP TALENT AGENT.
THE FIRST CLASS
The goal is to prepare you for the simulated meeting with the agent the second week. Fernando will go over how to get a meeting, advice on headshots and resumes and you'll perform a cold read. Each actor then will be called onto the stage where he will conduct a meeting similar to the type of meeting you would expect in the real world. Each actor will receive a cold-read scene to perform and get notes to prepare for the second class.
THE SECOND CLASS
The Guest Agent will meet each actor, conduct a cold read with them and fill out a rate card. After the agent has left Fernando will go over the rate card and give feedback on the meeting.
FERNANDO A. BUITRAGO is a talent manager at ZERO GRAVITY MANAGEMENT. In 2010, Fernando spent a year at INNOVATIVE ARTISTS after transitioning into representation from the world of casting. He was a casting assistant at SHEILA JAFFE CASTING, helping to cast season six of HBO’s ENTOURAGE as well as the Paramount feature, THE FIGHTER.
