Crash Acting

Crash Acting // Career

Don’t just book a job. Light a fire under your career.

Life as a professional actor is unlike any other professional life. Navigating a competitive industry, maintaining an artistic practice, and developing the character to withstand the ups and downs of an unpredictable career can be challenging and, at times, exhausting. 

In fact, every year, more actors quit the industry than enter it. 

But, it doesn’t have to stay this way.

Developed by actor, coach, producer, and cultural innovator, Benjamin Mathes, the You, the Career program is a holistic yet practical approach to the professional life of an actor that will challenge, excite, and ground you in your most valuable asset—you. This newly developed program, launched in late 2018, equips artists at all stages in their careers how to build a foundation for a long-lasting professional life as an actor that is fulfilling, evolving, and resilient in response to the whims of the industry.
