BS+SAG Foundation logo

Curious about "image" and a successful career?  Unsure about what an image is and how to use the concept to develop marketing strategies and personalize auditions and performances?  Sam Christensen, recognized image expert and industry consultant will discuss why it is important—and necessary—to develop and market a unique, personal and authentic brand.

Sam Christensen has spent nearly forty years in the entertainment business grappling with the concept of image.  In this video, he will address topics such as:  What does the word image mean?  Why is image elusive, especially for the performing artist? How does an actor go about defining their image?  Is there a public and private image, or are they the same?  How does an actor define an acceptable public identity that honors their interior life and exterior perception?  How can image be translated into practical application from headshots to signature performance?  Is image easier for some than for others?  With versatility, range and bold choices valued as virtues for the actor, does a defined image create limitations or easier access?

Mr. Christensen will provide understandable examples, share practical career improvement applications, and help you better define your authenticity, value and  image.  Take a peek and then share this video with your friends!
