• Production Crew
What topics are covered in the Visa Seminar?
The Visa Seminar covers the process for obtaining an O-1 visa and sponsorship. We’ll teach you the most cost-effective ways to get working papers for the U.S. and give you advice on transitioning to Hollywood. You’ll also learn how to find a place to live, what insurance coverage you need, how to find a reputable acting coach and so many more details about acting in L.A. and America in general.
Do you guarantee that I will get a visa?
Industry Hollywood does not coordinate visas and we are not immigration lawyers. We make suggestions that are based on our own personal experiences obtaining a visa and getting sponsorship in the U.S. We’ve also advised hundreds of actors on these topics. Like most things in life, there are no guarantees. The decision to approve your visa application is outside of our control.
We can guarantee that we’ll do our best to help you. We will suggest the most efficient and cost-effective routes that have maintained our 99% success rate thus far.

Do I need a visa to do the Networking Week?
No. Networking is devised so that actors can test the waters in L.A. and see if it’s for them. The week is considered an educational, mini vacation. If they week proves to be successful, Industry Hollywood can guide and assist you on how to start the O1 visa process.
For those that already have an O1 visa, Industry Hollywood’s L.A. Networking Week itself will give you that personal introduction which can help to open doors and establish relationships through educational meetings and workshops.
Do actors get signed with agents or managers or can I get cast in a movie by doing the Networking Week?
The Networking Week is devised to be educational and it’s rare that there’s further contact between the industry professional and the actor after the workshop. However, over the past nine years there have been a few exceptions. Please read about some of our success stories to find out the first hand experience had by some of the actors during past Networking Weeks.
Who do we meet during Networking Week?

Previous weeks included industry people who have been involved in movies and television shows such as directors and producers of both feature films and TV shows, management teams and agents. Please see the sample timetable to get an idea of what kind of people we meet with during the week.
What is the schedule for Networking Week?
