How to help yourself and your management get you auditions and work.
What is The Village Online going to do for you?

The Village Online is like a management team on steroids. It’s everything you think your manager or agent should tell you and wish they could tell you.  

But here’s why most don't;

1.       There is too much information to deliver one on one or even in-person over time.  

2.       The information changes.  Our industry changes at the speed of light and managers and agents don’t                    always have time to update their clients on new standards in show reels or photos, or which casting                      service is "hot" right now.


The video format is easy to access at any time so up can remind yourself, update your knowledge and skills and stay connected.  It is an innovative information resource that is updated regularly BUT it is also a motivational tool to keep you moving forward. 


Then when you have completed the online course we work with you  to help you move forward.  We can help you

1.        Help you work out your target niche and your type(s).

2.        Work out what training you need and why and recommend you to coaches.

3.        Advise you around photo and photographers.

4.        Help you make decisions around scenes and show reels and answer ALL of your questions.


Our mission is to help you. We will be here with you for your journey.

I used to think being a good actor was enough, that people would have to take notice if I was good enough. After several years with my head down working on my craft, I try to get into the race and realize I have no idea how this race even works.  

Since completing the village course I finally have a grasp on the business side of things and what is expected of me.

Melissa and Teili

Overall ’The Village’ has been the best source of information I have ever used. The course modules were easy to follow, understand and navigate back and forth to make sure nothing was missed.

Because my daughters' goal is to become and actress and singer, ’The Village’ is an excellent resource to have on hand.

A note from Sharon

My passion is helping performers.  For me, finding an exciting new talent is the highlight of my job and I know it is for my peers and casting directors as well.

For over 30 years I have worked with thousands of performers – from all genres and all ages.  A truly sad industry statistic is that only 3% of performers will achieve their goals. Why?

It’s simple. 

Agents and managers  all work hard to get their clients work, that's how they make a living.  But if the clients don't know how to feed them; to keep them excited and engaged and give them the tools to go into battle for them, then everyone is working in a void and ultimately, both fail.

Is it easy to correct?  YES. But you have to be willing to commit to learning about the industry you want to be a part of. This is the most important aspect of a performers career. If you are not driving your career then no-one will.  Your reps work for you not you for them.  

You are the team leader so you need to know what to do - how to "feed" your representatives, how to give them the tools they need to promote you and how to support them in their work for you. 

If you don't have an agent or manager then we can show you how to get to a point where you can choose your agent, not them you.

Your job as a performer is to understand what you need to do, it, why you need to do and how to do it and then you can take action.  The Village is designed to help you achieve this.

If you do this your representative will be with you every step of the way - and so will we.

For parents of aspiring actors the course is a must do before you get started. It is so easy to waste money and time and still you end up with a disappointed child. No parent wants that.

I am excited about the potential for the talented artists who join The Village and who, with our help, will buck that dreadful statistic and not only aim for the stars but get there.

Is it possible?  Yes, it is.
