RECOMMENDED READING LIST FOR ACTORS FROM TDC:

Available at DISCOUNTED RATES for TDC students at BIZ BOOKS: http://www.bizbooks.net/thedramaclass

Biz Books is owned by our Artistic Director- Adult Programs, Catherine Lough Haggquist

 

 

BACKGROUND EXTRAS INFO: 

Being a background extra gives you a good idea of what happens on a film set. It can be boring, so bring a book to read.

They do not send you out for commercials or film/tv principal auditions. You need a Talent Agent for that.

​You cannot put BG work on an actor's resume as you didn't audition for it. 


Here are the BG AGENTS we recommend:

 

INFINITY CASTING  

​BCF CASTING - has a limited number of shows. Does not take a commission

BOSS MANAGEMENT - has several shows and does take a 15% commission

 

 

This is a great Facebook Group for Parents of Youth Actors:  CANADIAN CHILD ACTOR

MORE TRAINING WE RECOMMEND:

Our philosophy at The Drama Class is that an actor develops their style and technique from the various instructors they have had.

So we happily recommend the following instructors: 

For Youth: Vancouver


LeBlanc School of Acting: Julian Leblanc


Biz Studio: Michael Bean


 www.kirstenclarkson.com: Kirsten Clarkson


Taped Auditions/Coaching: Maple Ridge: Nicole LaPlaca
