Leaders & Learners with Mel Mack, Actor Trainer, Author, and Studio Owner
This dynamo has been steeped in the NY and LA entertainment industries for more than 25 years. She’s coached actors for film and TV shows including The Sinner, SVU, Orange Is The New Black, Blind Spot, Blue Bloods, and countless others. She’s an in-demand casting director for national commercial spots for Verizon, Visa, and Burger King, and hundreds more. She also appeared in numerous TV shows, acting with stars like Mark Harmon, Damien Lewis, and Megan Mullaly. Join us and meet the incomparable Mel Mack. She now has a new book out about how actors go from auditioning, auditioning, and auditioning to booking, booking, and booking. 101 Acting Tips is full of insider information that Mel Mack gleaned after years of working on both sides of the camera. These tips—if practiced regularly—will enable actors to have more fun with their auditions, and walk away feeling more confident and in charge of their auditions. This book will help actors stop wishing and start landing the roles they deserve. Get the story behind the story.
