We have a question from our Business for the Actor Class. Cesar…do you have an agent and how did you get signed?
Pamela Chau
57:20
Is it ok to work unpaid/low pay to build resume? If yes, how long should one work unpaid/low paid work for? Also how do you figure out your pay rate or should you wait for a production to tell you how much they’ll pay you?
Jesus A. Reyes
59:33
Personally, it was difficult to venture into theatre and find my way because I was the only person in my family in the arts (still am) and realized that I needed to gain confidence and drive, how do you build your confidence and drive?
Biz for Actor Class
01:01:13
Yes, I told them that! Ha🙂

Luis Angel Diaz Mejia
01:12:22
Luis Diaz from ELAC CAMPUS NEWS, question is for everyone how can you encourage new people that want to get into theatre, what advice can you give them from not overthinking and being able to try new things in different part of theatre
FRANCOIS-PIERRE COUTURE he_him_his

A bunch of my classmates worked on that! HA. They never came back to school after
Jesus A. Reyes
01:17:20
Yes, get your reps in!
Jessica Hansen (she/her/hers)
01:19:23
If you work for a low or no pay project, make sure that you trust your instincts. If it doesn’t feel right to you, then it isn’t right!

The best place to start your network is at school. Your classmates could work with you in the industry way after graduation 🙂

01:25:19
YES! I am still working with people that I met over 20 years ago in school and professionally! For example, CTG - where I became an equity actor - is ELAC’s education partner. They are co-sponsoring all of our Mentor Month events. Everything circles back!
