Project Description

Berg Studios is excited to announce the next session of our popular class Mastermind: The Business of Acting. An eight-week program starting in June/August!

The Mastermind groups are moderated by Gigi Bermingham, an award-winning, working L.A. actor who has years of experience facilitating career goals groups and guiding actors at all career levels.

Mastermind addresses your goals and professional growth. You will share your experiences, gain practical understanding in order to navigate the entertainment industry, and learn from others. You will determine your goals (long-term, medium-term, and short-term), take control of your job as a business owner (whose business is YOU), figure out what is still needed in your toolkit, and create a plan of action to market yourself as an actor.

Students who join Mastermind are assigned to either the Tuesday or Wednesday weekly sessions. The groups are capped at 8 participants, ensuring that everyone gets substantial time and attention. What is shared in the groups is confidential.

Keep the momentum going! After you have completed your 8-week session you are welcome to join the ongoing Monthly Mastermind which meets one Friday per month.


The Mastermind group led by Gigi has been invaluable for the development of my career. The provided accountability and insights allow me to consistently reach new heights in my creative life and business. I would tell any serious actor to get into Mastermind. I would not be where I am today – a working actor – without it. Bailey S.

Since I started working with Gigi and my fellow actors in Mastermind, I’ve signed with a manager and bi-coastal representation and have begun working extensively in theater in New York and LA while auditioning for film and television. The class is a great forum for exploring the details of working as an actor in an ever-changing industry. Kevin D.

Since participating in the program I now have stunning professional headshots, a high-quality reel, acting credits and an agent. I made progress quickly and efficiently thanks to Gigi’s experience in the business and the support, resources and accountability. I HIGHLY recommend Gigi’s Mastermind program to new and experienced actors alike! Rachel D.
