Award-winning filmmakers and creative professionals, The Jermanok Brothers, are excited to present their three-hour workshop for all actors, writers, directors, singers, comedians, musicians and artists in Boston. Called The Real Scoop: How to Make a Living Creatively, the workshop is a bottom line, pragmatic approach to everything one needs to know to make a living creatively. This insider experience could save one many, many years. And put you on the road to building a genuine creative career….with a serious dose of motivation.
Two three-hour seminars will take place on March 20th at Harvard. The first from 10-1 is for all actors, comedians, musicians, artists, and other performers. The second from 2-5 is best suited for writers, directors, producers, and filmmakers. Using their real-life experiences, The Jermanok Brothers will cover how to distinguish yourself from the rest of the pack, whether leaving your hometown is necessary, the art of schmoozing, why learning the business side of your craft is important, how to pay the rent while pursuing your dream, and using your life history as a networking strength.
