So, you want to be a star?

Northern California has a number of resources to help you get started pursuing a career in television, radio, or motion pictures.

There are regularly held workshops in Sacramento to learn the craft of voice overs, acting, on camera preparation, improv, and more. In addition, there are casting directors who will work with you to get proper head shots, prep for auditions and more.

We’ve listed some of these resources here, but there are more out there, and with a little perseverance, you can be on your way.
