As an Actor you’ll be used to periods of down time when work isn’t as abundant as you’d like it to be. During these times it’s important to stay sharp and stay creative to ensure you feel empowered between acting jobs. During quarantine Jeremy Gordon and producing partner/actor, Spencer Garrett, teamed up with actor/writer/director, Jerry Ying, who created the hit IGTV series, Quarantine, in order to be the first season long TV Series shot entirely on Zoom, while simultaneously donating 100% of their proceeds to the SAG AFTRA Foundation.  Tune in to hear how this idea came to fruition and get advice from Jeremy on finding new ways to always be creative, because creating your own opportunities will undoubtedly open up new avenues in your career. In an industry where it can be hard to feel in control, creating is something you don’t need a ‘yes’ to do.

The moderator will choose a few questions to be answered during this session.
