I had an interesting conversation yesterday with my producing partners. They brought up lately that I've been saying "I can't" a lot these days. Especially when it comes to acting and certain roles. And the more I thought about it, I realized that since I've started saying "I can't", I haven't been booking!
I've lost my MOJO! I've lost that fire and that CAN DO attitude which is affecting my acting! I used to have a really good booking and/or… Continue

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers; better known as ASCAP, is targeting videos on YouTube for royalty payment for it’s professional creative members. This is a good thing for producers who work hard at making their product, only to see that someone has “borrowed” some of that property clips for their own use.

Is It Extra Slow This Year?
by Bob Fraser
Unemployment, the actor's constant companion and persistent worry, has been getting progressively
worse in the last six months.
The reasons behind this 'slow time' are many:
Banks have gotten stingy about making loans (even to big production companies). Many of the films over the last year have failed to make a significant profit and most have failed completely. The television audience is now dwindling… Continue

Meetings with Representation
by Laura Kossoff
