It’s hard to imagine a group of people more qualified to adapt, to survive with courage and determination, and to pull together in difficult times BUT for everyone these times present challenges. With production starting to resume it’s important that you are aware of what will be required of you as an Actor when you are cast for your next job. Amanda Richards will be discussing topics revolving around the business of acting during this pandemic, such as how guidelines can be practically implemented on set and how the process of casting has changed.

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