For many New England actors and other area talent, getting a career started in showbiz can be hard to embark on. New England itself is not an area of the country that most people would consider as having a potential for careers in entertainment. Since the advent of Hollywood East, many more resources have become available in terms of casting agencies, acting classes and coaches, and other important services for actors. A series of new ebooks, entitled Launching Outside Los Angeles, written by Jenny Yerrick Martin, has recently been launched with the intention of filling in the gaps for people aspiring to get started in entertainment, and don’t happen to live near Hollywood, CA.
Martin, who grew up in Maryland, graduated from Boston University with an undergraduate degree in Broadcasting and Film, so she herself has connections to the New England area. Martin began her website, yourindustryinsider.com, as an online resource for people looking for advice on the industry.
“Your Industry Insider (www.yourindustryinsider.com) provides entertainment career information and inspiration to students, recent grads and others, including advice on getting into the industry and moving up, reviews and spotlights of resources, and profiles of working professionals in all sorts of positions in the industry, from film, TV, and music producers to agents and entertainment attorneys to cinematographers and editors, etc.”
Her LOLA Entertainment Career Kickstart Kit, is comprised of the three ebooks, including Launching Outside Los Angeles (LOLA): Your Industry Insider’s Guide to Launching Your Entertainment Career Wherever You Are, a guidebook, The LOLA “Your Entertainment Career Starts Here” workbook, and the LOLA “Get Connected” selected resource list. These materials are available for purchase online through her website.
Martin herself is a veteran entertainment human resources executive, and a career consultant and professional resume writer through her Momentum Advantage Career Services business.
