The Acting Podcast


“You understand this is a calling. It’s not about booking, it’s about engaging in a human experience. If that is your interest, and you show up with that goal, you’re elevating everything to another level. Your work is different. You bring value. Because it means more to you. All of a sudden, careers change when that shift is made. There is nothing that the Industry can give you that will be better than your Artistry.”  -Steve Braun

Show Notes

Booking work starts with a booking mindset. In this episode, Risa and Steve break down the ways in which to shift your approach to booking work and cultivate a consistent practice in order to do amazing work all the time, whether in a high-pressure audition setting, self-tape, on set, in rehearsal, or in your approach to your career. Listen in and learn how to change your norm from nervousness, self-consciousness, even self-defeat, to believing in yourself, being self-aware, proactive, and deeply knowing your power as an actor and your value as an artist. Go ahead and do some journaling on your “why,” on your purpose, when you’re done listening. We want to hear from you! 

Meet us on Instagram and other social spaces where we hang out — with tons more great advice, inspiration, and Industry intel, especially in this time of self-isolating + sheltering-in-place.
