Acting in Young Hollywood A Career Guide for Kids, Teens, and Adults Who Play Young Too by Frederick Levy

Top talent manager offers advice to steer today's performing youth to the careers of their dreams. 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. For kids, special focus is given to labour laws, education options and how parents fit in as managers and vital members of the support team. Filled with anecdotes about working in the business, the book will both entertain readers and offer firm, practical advice not just from the author but from other actors, acting coaches, agents, casting directors and more.
