ACTRA Industry Series 2013

Your ACTRA Maritimes Council and the ACTRA Training Committee are happy to present the second annual ACTRA Industry Series, based on feedback from you, our members!

Every Tuesday night for the month of January, starting Tuesday, 8th January, ACTRA will be hosting a seminar about a different subject that may be of interest to you and your career.  Come to one!  Come to them all!

All seminars are open to the public, with full and apprentice ACTRA members having preference, and will take place Tuesday nights between 7-9 pm in one of the studio spaces at Neptune Theatre.  Come to the Studio (Argyle Street) entrance to be let in.  There is a drop in fee of $10 for all of the seminars unless listed otherwise.  This is to help us cover our costs.  Any leftover funds will be put towards the purchase of a new video camera for ACTRA members to use!

While this is a drop in, we ask that participants pre-register for each seminar beforehand so we have an idea of numbers and how many chairs to set out.  You can do that by contacting Tami Thomson at  Registration cut off will be Monday at 12 p.m. on the Monday before each seminar.  If there are any problems (i.e. snow or cancellation dates), you will be notified via email.

Tuesday, 29 January

Follow the Money: What Does the Producer Do?

Moderator: TBA

Guests: Bill Niven, Jay Dahl

Often as performers, our most exciting and meaty roles come from being cast in locally produced films.   What exactly is the role of a film producer?  Where do you go looking for sources of funding and how possible is it to be an independent producer on the east coast?  Local producers Bill Niven (Rollertown, Just Buried, Marion Bridge) and Jay Dahl (Rollertown, Picnicface, There Are Monsters) will answer these questions and more in a Q&A styled format where we learn how east coast producers work… and how you could become one yourself!

Cost: $10
