Project Description


The Berg Studios is excited to announce that we have revamped our popular Mastermind: The Business of Acting group from a once a month program to an 8-week, one class per week program!

Mastermind is designed to help you hold yourselves (and your classmates) accountable to your career goals and growth. It is a place for actors to share their experiences and information about how to further your careers and navigate the entertainment industry. With this newly enhanced program your commitment and knowledge base will increase accordingly! The Mastermind group is moderated by Gigi Bermingham, an acclaimed LA actor who has years of experience facilitating Mastermind groups.

Students who join Mastermind for the first time are assigned to the Beginning to Work group. During the 8 weeks you will determine your career goals (long-term, medium-term and short-term), understand your job as a business owner (whose business is YOU), figure out what’s still needed in your toolkit, and create a plan of action and weekly task list. You will develop professional habits as you continue to expand your talents and market yourself as an actor.

Those who are further along in their careers may progress to the Ready to Work group at the instructor’s discretion. The Ready to Work group meets one Monday per month.

Mastermind participants are partnered with another student in their group, working in pairs for greater accountability, and all classes are capped at 8participants, assuring that everyone gets substantial time and attention.

Here are some reasons to join a Mastermind Group while building your acting business:

Community – You’ll be a part of an exclusive community at Berg Studios that supports one another in the Business of Acting. Your peers become your confidants because what’s shared in the group remains confidential.

Advisement – Once you are involved in a mastermind, that feeling of “being alone” while running your business will diminish. You’ll have the support of each other.

Collaboration – The group works together, collaboratively, to achieve more. Witnessing your peers make strides becomes an inspiration for you to do the same.

Networking – Extend your network! Knowledge and information do not exist in a bubble. The group is a brain trust of valuable shared information.

New Ideas – by interacting and sharing your challenges, it’s almost certain that someone in your mastermind will have a solution for you and you may also be able to offer a solution, connection or tactic to help another in the group.
