What are Breakdowns?
Breakdowns are complete synopses of the characters contained within scripts for episodics, pilots, feature films, commercials, print projects, theater, and many other types of projects that require acting talent. Breakdowns approved for release are sent out in real-time through our websites at breakdownexpress.com and actorsaccess.com
