It was a gorgeous September day in Burbank for the first Actor Training In LA’s Young Actors EXPO. I arrived earlier than I’m usually awake on a Sunday morning to help man the booth for The Looking Ahead Program (I serve on their Advisory Committee). Fortunately, right around the corner from our gorgeous booth was a in-house Starbucks. Good planning Marriott Burbank!
In reality, I could have slept in. The booth was expertly-manned with Looking Ahead Education Counselor, Laura Campbell, talented Looking Ahead teens Hannah Rae, and my fellow Looking Ahead committee members. But I’m so glad I didn’t sleep in. What an amazing time, catching up with old friends like Jeremy Apody of Abrams Artist Agency, one of my favorite kids’ headshot photographers Shandon, and so, so many awesome Hollywood Mom Blog families.
Entrance into the EXPO’s “Agent, Manager and Vendor Ballroom” was free of charge to all and all the attendees seemed to take advantage of the opportunity to network. Headshots, resumes and business cards were flying! Overall, Parents and child actors alike were very excited about the big 4/8.
Here’s the recap of the amazing day in pictures!
