Introduction to Diary of an Unemployed Actor
Most podcasts and interview shows talk to the big stars, the actors and actresses with publicists who tell them what stories to tell and how to promote their projects. I’d like to hear from the rest of us trying to make a living as performers - the people starring in independent films and shorts, the supporting artists and background performers. I would like to hear from those in the theatre. “Diary of an Unemployed Actor” is not just about promoting projects, it is to provide a source of education for those making a living as performers or those who want to learn more about making a living as actors and actresses. A podcast for learning and entertainment. The show is hosted by Milo Denison. You can follow him at: www.instagram.com/milodenison www.facebook.com/milodenison www.milodenison.com
