THE ACTORS’ CO-OP CONCEPT! (Directors, writers, Comics & Video DP’s invited) I’ve found this neat, easy-to-do way we can all be FURTHERING OUR THEATRICALCAREER in a GROUP OR TEAM: STARTING our OWN, ACTORS’ SCREENWRITERS’ CO-OP here in town. FILM SCHOOL COSTS AN ARM AND A LEG? WHY can’t WE CREATE a FREE ACTING CLASS (directors/ writers, comedians and VIDEO DP’s invited, too) so it’ an actual FILM SCHOOL. We make our own VIDEOS, audition tapes, free! THE COOP is easy. We get members putting ads at UNIVERSITY FILM SCHOOL bulletin boards, CRAIGS LIST. When we work this way, we actually become
HOLLYWOOD BOUND!(don’t click, you’re already there!)
We know that you've felt you belong in the arts...BELIEVE it, you CAN BE A CONTENDER! Literally, for an OSCAR. You want to a.) Write, b.) Direct, c.) Act or d.) Do stand up comedy, or E.) Be a D.P. and USE DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERAS. DO U TUBE movies. (Obama just saw the one on homeless school children.) You will be the most POPULAR person at the CO-OP. If you don’t have DIGITAL VIDEO equipment now, maybe a film student at local university does? Well, work together in somebody’s living room or in a church basement as the SHOW BIZ CO-OP! Let’s PRACTICE, LEARN and progress, GET BETTER AND BETTER at our art skills. WITH "SCHOOL FORCE." OUR GOLDEN MOMENT IS HERE! Let’s ENJOY FURTHERING OUR CAREERs and that of our compatriots here in our town! Let’s BE HOLLYWOOD BOUND! Let’s create A FREE ACTORS' WORKSHOP with directors, writers, VIDEO DP’s, like the repertory, MERCURY THEATRE was for ORSON WELLES! We can film TV commercials for local businesses and make money. We can function as an ad agency for them, designing and executing really hip, cool commercials. If you could see your group doing that, CLICK ON THAT FILE.
Start your group there where you live. PUT ads up at University Film School bulletin board and at CRAIGS list to assemble a dozen people. I'm in Hollywood and I am not running the acting class/ directing class etc. You don’t need a group leader. We’ve all seen acting classes, right? If not, read this. ACTING CLASSES I HAVE KNOWN. What I saw is we paid the guy 500$ a night and we could have done the class ourselves if we had a church basement or even in an average living room. A GROUP could teach itself. I know the turf. I once acted, was repped by William Morris Agcy acted on Bonanza, Wagon Train, Dobie Gillis, Cheyenne, 77 Sunset strip, (see me at imdb.com under Anita Sands -- but in my dotage, I've thot-- man how easy would it be to do this 'education' rehearse --work out thing the way i paid to do it age 15 to age 18 as l8 is when i went pro...do it in any sml town. you guys don't have acting coaches on every corner. like L.A. calif. you have film schl at Univ. 15k a yr. we all have that in every city but how about cheaper? FREE? howsabout you micky mouse what i had and paid for or my parents did, as a kid. I studied with Agnes Moorhead, was in Sandy Meisner's class at 20th century fox on the lot. and Player's Ring and so many more great teachers including Shlomo Riskin, Jack Garfein, Bernie Wiesen. I’ve seen groups. One could be thrown together, ad hoc by any group that can find each other at univ. bulletin boards at film dept and at Craigs list. An idea is a seed. YOU PLANT the seed I am sending here and believe me, It WILL PAY OFF.
