GET CLEVER ABOUT ACTING IN LOS ANGELES
THE ULTIMATE E-BOOK SERIES FOR CANADIAN ACTORS WANTING TO WORK IN LOS ANGELES
“I created these e-books because I wish I’d had such a resource before, during, and after I moved to Los Angeles from Canada” -Lili Wexu, Author
The only one of its kind on the market, the Canadian edition of The Business Of Acting in Los Angeles lifts the curtain on what it’s really like to pursue acting as a foreigner in the entertainment capital of the world.
Jam-packed with resources, advice and tips for building an acting career, this e-book addresses local business practices (casting directors and agents) and the industry’s culture, as well as the different reality Canadian actors must adapt to in order to work and succeed in Los Angeles. Since Los Angeles has the biggest acting market on the planet, this e-book is a must for those who are serious about acting in any market.
This entire four-part-series is a bible for newly-arrived Canuck actors, as well as those who are currently in the process of applying for their work visas. It’s even helpful for those who plan on applying for a visa in the future. Aside from the business of acting in Los Angeles, the books cover immigration visas (O-1s and EB-1s or green cards), cross-border accounting for the working actor, and the nuts and bolts of relocating to Los Angeles (finding a home, importing cars, etc.)

It’s so great to know how the world of ‘trying to make it as an actor in LA’ works and this book points out so many things to think about before moving to Los Angeles. I highly recommend this for actors. I wish this book existed before I moved to LA 10 years ago. It would’ve saved a lot of time AND MONEY! It’s especially helpful for beginners, but really good for anyone serious about acting.
Amazingly honest and generous. Great read. I’ve been here for 3 years now and still learned a lot reading it. Also great reminders for thd forgotten basics and good ressource for new tools to acquire. Loved it
Wow. Brilliant! Encouraging, but tells you everything you need to know! Such a good guide to acting in LA! I wish I had it earlier…
I want to pursue voice acting and I had no idea where to start. This was full of great info and easy to read. Very helpful.
If I had this easy to follow guide on what being a (successful) actor in LA takes, I believe I would’ve been better prepared for the move to LA, and would’ve saved myself a lot of time and guesswork. Being a theater student moving out to the big city, nothing but experience/trial & error prepped me for the move. No one takes the time to break down for you all of the other knowledge and skills it takes to be successful in the film industry here in LA. Nowadays, the pool of actors is so incredibly huge, it takes a hell of a lot more than just acting chops to rely on acting as your sole source of income in one of the most expensive cities in the states to live in. If you’re brand new to the industry or are thinking of making the move to LA for acting, do yourself a favor and check out this book. I think it’s also great that the author includes contact info for any further questions you may have after reading.
