Everything I Learned
In My First 10 Years
with Tom Downing
If you're lost, may this be your clearing.
I help actors find their stride. It's that simple.
I was lost, too - in the darkest of holes for years as an actor. Even in the best of classes, I was left to 'figure it out' just like everyone else.
Even as a working actor booking a good number of roles, I had so many holes in my art and business.
It was keeping me from gaining progress.
Being a struggling actor is more than just not making money. It means not having direction or process or purpose.
I'm here to change that.
Through circumstances and experience that I'll reveal in the intensive, I was mentally and emotionally released to allow for the process to truly take hold.
20 years in, acting for me is easy. Because I learned how to make it easy. It's my process and it's a process that works.
Through my care and expertise, I will guide and mentor you using the same process that took me from struggling to booking.
Will this really do the trick?
Has anything else worked before? Maybe an investment in something different is exactly what you need to bring upon a shift powerful enough to be another success story. With a mentor who has been where you are.
I trained most of my life and spent over $50,000 and 10,000 hours absorbing everything. You're learning from some of the best teachers in the world. And you're getting it for 1% of the time and money it took.
