Yes, it's true -- I'm teaching a marketing workshop. I've been busy the last several months (and especially over the holidays) helping folks with marketing their acting, collateral, business plans, Websites, and the like.
So, at the encouragement of my film coach and the Austin acting community, I'm doing workshop.
Below are the details (and if it goes well, there will be more of them):
Two Chairs Studio, 1701 East 6th Street, presents:
with Adam Creighton From beginner to working professional - how to market yourself and catch the attention of the people who need to know you.
From one of Austin's top CASTING DIRECTORS:
"Adam Creighton is one of the most professional, well-marketed actors I know. His creativity constantly gets my attention, and keeps him on my radar. I'm so impressed that I actually keep items he has created on the refrigerator in the office. I think of him constantly because his name and likeness is everywhere! And that's a really good thing!"
