Description - Acting Is a Job by Jason Pugatch

Tough love for the uninitiated actor meets from-the-trenches guide for working and aspiring actors in this young, hip look at the demanding acting profession. A working actor shares his 'day player' insight into the humour and heartbreak of a thespian trying to find work, telling actors what they need to know the first day on the set and showing how to cope with the economic realities of an actor's life. The author is a young actor who has landed professional acting gigs; he knows and addresses issues of greatest interest to actors looking for work. He provides warts-and-all insight into the struggles and rewards of a professional acting career. He also debunks popular myths about what actors earn; how they can be "discovered"; and what they can expect before, during, and after a training program. This book features lively anecdotes from the author's personal experience plus in-depth interviews with actors, agents, casting directors, and other industry professionals. Aimed at working and aspiring actors, it features back cover endorsements from industry luminaries such as James Lavine, Will Frears (director of "Omnium Gatherum") and Rob Decina (casting director of Guiding Light).
