In this three hour seminar, Richard Burke will take you though everything you need to know from an actors perspective only when taking this big step in your career. Richard is NOT a qualified lawyer and is NOT a immigration consultant. The information and advice given is taken from his own personal experience of having to put together a list of possible things needed for his own Visa application. We advise you contact the qualified professionals that specialize in this field and you will be given those contact details of various Visa Coordinators or Immigration Lawyers at the seminar, that we know that have a high success rate.
The four key topics are:
~ Business ~ Lifestyle ~ Industry
SPONSORSHIP AND VISAS (Who to work through that has
high success rate, based on my own visa case study )
As well as:
* finding a place to live in LA
* getting an agent and a manager
* where to train and get coaching
* pilot season vs independent film industry
* managing your finances and insurance, and
* connecting with industry professionals
Do not miss this rare opportunity to gain valuable insight into working in the film and television industry in Hollywood!
Visa Seminar Testimonials
The Visa seminar covers everything in 3hrs that the actor needs to know.
Its direct and to the point and more importantly we tell you HOW I obtained working papers and How managed to get the SPONSORSHIP .
Our advice is to help the actor have the freedom to WORK in the USA and save you time and money.
Industry Hollywood has helped over 200 Actors obtain working papers, with a 99% success record.
Industry Hollywood is NOT an acting school, We are NOT qualified to give legal advice on immigration . The advice given is an ACTOR'S BASED OPINION ONLY on the professional experience of Richard Burke, who has first hand experienced exactly what it is like to move to LA and talking through his own O-1 Visa application experience . We also work alongside the most reputable acting teachers in the world, who have worked with A list names within the industry.
LA has some of the best acting coaches in the world like:- Howard Fine, Margie Haber , Amy Lyndon , Lesly Kahn, to name a few ... these would be the schools we advice actors to study with.
The O-1 Visa allows you to work, but also study with the choice of acting schools. This will save alot of time and money of having the restraints of having to pay monthly fees to an acting school in order to stay in the USA on a Student visa.
In the long run this is a costly process and is in the interests of the acting school rather than the actor.

Alex Rzechowicz 16 year old actor from Sydney attended the Visa seminar in Sydney Australia in 2008, after securing his 3 year O1 Visa. Alex has since been in LA for 2009 pilot season and has booked work and has now got his SAG card.
Alex's Mum "Richard Burke of Industry Hollywood was recommended to me by our agent. I had attended another "working in America" seminar and was thinking it was all too much to worry about, and then I heard about Richards seminar. I figured I might as well get another opinion. All I can say is, thank God I went !
Richards seminar was full of facts on how to work in America, get a visa, get an agent AND most importantly how to survive!
We were inspired by Richards seminar and started to research further. I found out that everything he had told us was real. In the meantime, my son - Alex, had been approached (rather unexpectedly!!) by an LA agent for representation in America. Everything Richard has shown us fell into place. We thoroughly researched the agent and found out it was a legitmite offer. Alex then signed with the agent. In the meantime, I had been on the internet to Richard asking for help and advice. He ALWAYS responded to me and helped me out with some great information.
We decided to use Richards contacts in getting the visa and after 5 months, Alex got his O1 visa. Since then, we have been to America. Alex has worked in LA on a SAG project and is therefore now SAG eligible. He even got to work with a dual Academy Award winner - Janus Kaminski. All through the process, I kept in contact with Richard - for advice and help. My advice is ....Do your homework, gather as much information as you can, cross reference it to work out who is telling you information for their own profit and who is genuinely trying to help you. Richard falls into the latter category. I can't recommend him enough for his honesty and intergrity! Good luck to all! Live the dream"
Ezekiel Mirabito - Australia 2009
Ezekiel's Mum - "I'm Michelle Mirabito and Ezekiel is my 14year old son and we live in Sydney. Ezekiel has been in the performing arts since he was 6 years old. We have spent a lot of time and investment in Ezekiel's chosen career including a number of trips to the USA on various tours and attending many different seminars and programs. It wasn't until we heard about Richard Burke , and Industry Hollywood that things started to happen for Ezekiel.
It started with the US Visa information seminar run by Richard Burke where we understood the realities of the challenge of pursuing a performing arts career in the USA. From the visa seminar we decided to follow the recommended steps and pursue an application through the formal process. This has resulted in Ezekiel being successful in obtaining an 01 Visa for 3 years. We then booked Ezekiel on the Industry Hollywood L.A networking week which also produced great results for us. From this trip Ezekiel was able to secure a manager and an agent. We have just returned from the LA Pilot season from which Ezekiel booked a SAG job and now has his eligibility.
Performing arts is a difficult and heroic career choice for performers and their parents. There are many industry service providers in Australia and the USA but I have not found any to be as relevant or productive as Richard Burke and Industry Hollywood in securing prospects in the USA."
"I attended Richards seminar in Sydney and since then have never looked
back. The information he provided was accurate, realistic and useful. He gives
you a clear understanding about the reality of the industry in Hollywood,
what is required and a step by step process of how you go about doing it for
real. The information is pricless and practical and any actor who takes their
craft seriously should go along to the seminar and hear what he has to say.
What you learn in the 3 hours can save you years of wasted dead end
research. Thanks Richard it was definatly worth it!"
Jasmin De Main
"I feel like a little kid who found out a juicy secret! This seminar is the answer for non-US creative artists wanting to obtain a visa to work in America. I am incredibly thankful to have received the invaluable information Richard provided. It was presented clearly and delivered in a straightforward and friendly way. Richard is so generous to share this information with other actors. Very much insider tips, and very specific details given. Like a larger scale slightly more official version of a chance meeting with a kind friend who knows his stuff."
"It really was terrific - practical, down to earth, honest and funny, and packed full of invaluable, sought after information that was a real honest insight to what it would be like to give it a good go over in the old US of A."
