It covers a range of topics including industry basics, such as understanding talent representation, using self-submit websites effectively, and avoiding scams.

The series also delves into industry-specific legal requirements like obtaining a work permit and setting up a Coogan account. There’s significant emphasis on the audition process, providing an in-depth look at each stage from self-taping to booking roles and on-set expectations.

In addition, the program addresses the mental health aspects of the industry, offering tips for coping with rejection, stress or burnout, and tips to maintain a balanced lifestyle.

The ultimate goal of these classes is to equip parents with the basic knowledge necessary to support and navigate their child’s acting career.

During the camera tests and throughout rehearsals and filming on my Netflix series, “Julie and the Phantoms”, Zak’s work with our young actors provided them with the tools that enabled them to accomplish outstanding work.  If I didn’t know better, I’d swear he was a magician

Zak Barnett taught me to love my craft.  Before I came to the studio I loved acting and I knew it was all I wanted to do, but I didn’t know why.  I found myself in a place where I was giving good auditions, but I wasn’t feeling fulfilled.  Going through his classes allowed me to find my own wants and meld them into one.  I learned to love the art of acting and find joy in making something special, something only I could create.
