How to Get an Acting Job outside of New York and Hollywood is a non-fiction book helping actors and print models find work outside of the traditional markets of New York and Hollywood. This book provides valuable interviews with directors, TV and video producers, photographers, theatre producers and actors. A must read for anyone who wants to find work in local markets in the field of TV commercials, print modelling and corporate videos. This book gives important and practical advice to those seeking local TV "stardom."
Practical, readable and instructive, this book holds the reader's attention. Even for the person who is not particularly interested in the topic, the author's clear and concise writing style readily offers interesting information.
One strong asset of this informational book is that it gave enough detail to the reader to move forward in the goal towards acting, but not so much as to bog the reader down with unnecessary detail.
Mr. Harris does meet the goals of his book that were promised in the introduction. Those goals included exploring creative ways of producing viable, artistic and theatrical experiences, exploring multimedia opportunities and to help artists and actors look for opportunities right where they live.
The sentence structures were designed for a "quick" read and that is what the reader experiences. The book cover does draw the reader to the book and the format and structure of the chapters is done well. For a person interested in the topic, this book is a helpful resource.
