Calling all actors, experienced and beginner, to take part in the survey that will form the basis for the 2020 Vancouver Actors report.
What is the 2020 Vancouver Actors report?
It’s a comprehensive, illustrated report that helps us leverage our community to get answers to those nagging questions that keep us up at night.
Not just tips and advice from big names—we’re going to use our collective experience to get real, hard data about industry standards in this city, common practices, and the day-to-day life of being an actor in Vancouver.
In this survey, I invite all Vancouver actors to share their thoughts and experiences. Weigh in on questions like,
- “What’s the average income for an actor in Vancouver?”
- “Am I auditioning more or less than most actors in town?”
- “How many auditions does it take to land a role?”
- “How much money do most actors spend on supplies?”
- “What’s the top skill that makes a successful actor?”
Why does this matter?
This is important because a big part of an actor’s career is uncertainty, and a large portion of the decisions are made behind closed doors.
You’re never quite sure when you’ll get an audition, when you’ll book a role, why you booked it, or why you didn’t.
We have some great mentors, but you just don’t know which projects will evolve into goldmine opportunities down the road. You’re not sure what project you’ll be working on a year from now—or maybe even a month from now. You’re not sure if you made the right decision to take a day job—or to turn down a day job.
Actors get tons of advice and opinions, but we suffer from a serious lack of data-based insight.
Let’s change that!
