The advice can be applied to both stage and screen careers and covers the whole industry, as well as Hollywood. The youth performing market is hotter than ever, with an unprecedented number of successful TV shows and films, such as Hannah Montana and High School Musical . Top talent manager Frederick Levy specialises in developing young talent and here offers a potent mix of authority and encouragement to steer today's performing youth to the careers of their dreams. The advice in this book can be applied to both stage and screen careers and covers the whole industry, as well as, Hollywood. From necessary tools (headshots) to the team of players (agents, managers) to auditions and booking a job, Levy details what to expect and teaches actors what they can do to manage and maintain a long-term career.
