Professional Development Program 2.0
Professional Development Program (PDP) 2.0 is designed for the student that is serious about developing as a professional artist and is determined to take their career in hand and be all they can be. 50% of the class will be focused on creating the career path and development of projects that can only be determined by the artist based upon their goals and dreams. The other 50% is focused on fulfilling all the necessary aspects of what it takes to have a career in Hollywood: getting agents and managers, taking headshots, having a good résumé, having a great reel, etc. The program is ultimately focused on the manifestation of the more in-depth strategies to advance personally and professionally. Richard will utilize his 40 years as a highly successful actor and his 30 years as a master teacher in leading, counseling, guiding, teaching, and empowering actors to fulfill their dreams. He will use his extensive knowledge and experience to teach them aspects of the business that would otherwise be difficult to ascertain on their own. It usually takes 5-10 years to get a foothold in the industry. PDP 2.0 will help shorten that time to 2-3 years if the artist/person is diligent and complies with the teaching.
