Question by Josh the Alien.: Can I add these on my acting resume…?
I’m a senior in high school. I’ve taken choir class (which was a way for my teacher to teach us how to use our voice/vocals, how to pronounce words correctly, how to enunciate, and how to use out diaphragm. Mostly for when we sung in front of people in our school music shows) and I’m taking drama class this year (Now we’re reading William Shakespeare books in front of the class like an actual plays and we act it out). Can I put these down on my resume underneath my “Education” content? Will it help, or no?
Answer by classmate
Yes, singing class and drama class are exactly the sort of thing you include in the education section of your resume.

Question by AR123: “My Artist’s Place” / “Be. Entertainment”- Has anyone had experience with these folks?
This is an organization supposedly dedicated to exposing children to the entertainment industry. They grab you in a mall, send you to a cattle-call to “audition” along w/ hundreds of other kids… then call back, hype the whole thing up & tell the kids (& parents) that they were among the BEST of ALL THOSE KIDS, then bring in MANY groups of 30 kids. They charge from $ 2,000 to $ 5,000 for “membership” where you get a very amateurish photo-shoot at a rental studio–cost $ 75 for pictures (several shots, only one printed head-shot; ours were totally washed out); then they send the kids to a “money camp”–$ 15.00; then 6 weekends (sat/sun) of “acting classes” which they charge $ 40/each weekend. For the $ 2000 fee, you get to attend some kind of show where supposedly talent agency representatives will be (??) So, above the membership fee, you spend at least $ 325. Seems a little like a B.S. money-making machine to me, offering very little substance — but I’d like to hear other’s opinions.

We’ve approached this as a training program, thus far. We’re in the middle of Boot Camp with our son. We did some research, and from what I can see (depending on your initial investment/membership fee) the price for (already subsidized) classes is competitive–we couldn’t find comparable acting classes price wise. Overall the Boot Camp experience has been good for our son; he’s enjoying it and becoming more confident.
Nevertheless, I do have some concerns/alarm bells
-MAP in San Jose is slow to return calls (made to scheduling department, and the “Talent Director”, who I realize is really a closer/sales generator)
-They instructed us to go through their Scheduling department (for photo shoots, classes)–but when our call was finally returned, we were redirected to the school for scheduling.
-Website presences not (professionally) maintained
-Program literature is not professional–many misspellings, amateurish appearance
-We were told to go ahead and list our son with several online “casting” sites (with additional fees) even though he had not received any formal training.
-I just heard from another MAP parent who was told that her child is too young to enroll in one of the other (external)programs–what’s the point of selling training if your child is ineligible? I don’t know what package they enrolled in, but if they don’t have an alternative and the contract “ages out” before the child does, this seems to be a false advertising issue.
Despite these reservations, we did go ahead and sign up. The biggest thing I would fault them on, overall, is poor communication.
We were unhappy with our photoshoot too, but we rescheduled and got better results (my son was instructed by the photographer to come in the first time even though he was sick, despite it stating not to do so in the instructions).
I’ve seen at least one glowing review (I think on Ripoffreport), but that’s about it. So, we’re still working through it, but I’ve not taken the District Atty’s number off of speed dial just yet.
I too would love to hear from other MAP/Be Productions parents. Actually, if any MAP/Be parents are interested in forming an email list or Yahoo Group, I’d be interested in participating.

Before embarking on a distance education masters degree program, it is important to watch out for a few things that could make you regret the school you chose later.
Choose a Reputable School – There are a few ways you can do this. You can find out what the school’s accreditation is. It is best to use a university that is regionally accredited. Usually this information is posted on the school’s website, but you may want to check with the school’s regional accrediting source to verify the information. Also, read reviews and find out whether or not the school has been investigated for fraud or any other type of unethical behavior. Also, try finding some reviews by past students to see what their experience with the school has been.
Evaluate Costs – Find out what financial aid is available before you start. It is best to use a school that offers federal financial aid opportunities since that will be cheaper in the long run than financing the school with private student loans.
Tuition rates vary widely between different schools so make sure you shop around for tuition rates that are low enough for your needs.
Evaluate the Course Formats – Find out the format for learning. There are many different ways that schools present the information for you to learn at a distance. Are you supposed to be online at specified times to meet with the teacher and classmates? Are you required to work on group projects with other students online? Do you work alone, with books at your own pace? These things are important to find out ahead of time.
Avoid the “Degree Mill” Type Schools – These schools can hinder your efforts to get a job or continue your education even further.
Look for the legitimate universities that provide a reputable degree.
See a list of Universities With Masters Degrees available online. We provide a list of “brick and mortar” Universities who also offer degrees online. All of the schools provide degrees for on-campus students as well. They also all offer financial aid and most of them offer federal financial aid. For more information visit http://www.gradwise.org
