FINDING YOUR “BRAND” WORKSHOP

COST $20.00 (plus regular class price)
Finding your brand and why you should – with Sandi Buehner!
This workshop introduces the idea of branding yourself as an actor. For years you are told, “Don’t brand yourself or you will be typecast.” While this is true for A-list actors, it is not true for actors just starting out. In fact, just the opposite is true. Unless you know what your brand is, how can you expect to sell it? And let’s face it, you, the actor, are the product and you definitely want buyers. This workshop teaches you how to recognize your niche by various means through breakdowns, interviews, and bookings. It teaches you what to do with that knowledge. With examples of how to promote your brand via headshots, you will leave this workshop with a better idea of what is needed in your headshots, how many headshots looks you will need and what those shots can do for you.
With experience across the board, Sandi Buehner brings experience and credits as executive producer for Opening Door Productions and Elusive Dream Productions, as a casting assistant for several commercials, a pilot, a union film, and a casting director for two short films. For a brief time, she had a glimpse into life as a voice over, commercial and theatrical agent. As owner of Actor Insight, Sandi helped several non-actors get their start into the acting business and helped several actors move forward in their careers. While not an acting coach or a manager, Sandi teaches the business side of the acting business.
Other experience includes: serving on the board of the San Diego Film Commission Foundation and co-owner of Actors For Reel, an audition technique class.
