Andrew Reilly's book covers everything you need to know to market yourself as an actor, with thorough and concise information about the movie-making process, drama school, community theatre, acting on television and in commercials, unions, and agents. Unlike other books about the acting business, which focus on east and west coast opportunities, 'An Actor's Business' describes 25 regions all over the United States, and devotes a whole chapter each to Hollywood and New York as well. A must-have for every actor, no matter where you live.
