The movie and television industry is booming in BC, bringing in over $34 billion into to our economy in the last year alone.
Many of the jobs filled are on camera and generally filled by those close to the action in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island.

After this meeting you will know how to find credible agencies, understand the materials necessary to apply for agency representation, how to present yourself (or your child) in the best light, how to read a call sheet, and understand basic set terminology. You will leave with a solid understanding of what to do to see yourself or your child on screen.
