WHO WE ARE
We’re dedicated to teaching the skills and providing the hands-on experience necessary for successful futures, both personally and professionally.
Pursuing an artistic career can be an exhausting, emotional journey. Whether your goal is to learn new skills, work out your actor's muscles, or work within the industry. Actor's Help Desk is the perfect place to build the foundation, and as a member, you will have access to our amazing support network.
Actor's Help Desk?
The Actor’s help desk is a subscription for actors that gives actors access to a variety of tools that will help them advance their careers. Actors often have a hard time taking their training and what they’ve learned and translating it into booking jobs.
What often happens is actors get swept up in the bright lights, big city, and big prices, and throw spaghetti at the wall seeing what sticks. They don’t quite understand how the business truly works, who they are, where they are truly relevant, who their buyers are, what they are selling, and most importantly HOW to sell it.
WHAT DO WE OFFER?

Coupled with consultations, classes, reel services, headshot services, a scene, and monologue database, and a network of actors to connect with.
