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. You don’t know what you don’t know so don’t ask
the right questions and therefore continue to make the same mistakes.
As agents and managers we all work hard to get our clients work, that's how we make a living. But if our clients don't know how to feed us; to keep us excited about them and give us the tools to go into battle for them, then we are working in a void and we 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.
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.
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.
