The Acting Podcast

Ep. 1: How to Make It in Hollywood

Show Notes

How to make it in Hollywood is about so much more than figuring out the mythic 1-2-3 steps to becoming a star. It lies in a holistic approach to being a whole and happy actor- on your own terms. In this episode, Risa Bramon Garcia and Steve Braun explore the deeper meaning of success and discuss how to approach your career from a place of artistry, collaboration, creativity, and discipline. Listen in and find out how you can expand your artistic journey and book more work because of it!

“The work is far more interesting and far more important than something that can be learned in a weekend. It’s dynamic, it changes, and your relationship to it changes- and there’s always another door to be opened, which is so exciting. You better love it- and you better do the work of loving it to support all that hard work.”
