mime tuition and sales development

Mimescape over the years have been teaching mime. Mime illusion is a small part of mime entertainment and therefore it is only one element of teaching the skills of a mime performer. Sometimes we have been engaged to teach mime as a whole so it is all the elements that go into becoming a mime performer. However, various companies have found it is useful as an aspect of teaching sales staff about body language.
How to be in the moment,how to rehearse for that special presentation. There is a whole set of skills needed for presentations and selling. Mimescape can provide an aspect of the skills that are needed but rarely taught. we have often done this as part of trevor liley presentations who have designed training workshops that cover the essentials for selling and motivation. Their trade show selling workshop is almost the only one of its type and is eminently practical. One can see the participants actively sitting up when they realize they are learning real world techniques for improving their sales results.

Mime performers can go beyond just mime entertainment to provide an essential element of skills that a companies staff can use.

Mime entertainment by Brendan

Brendan continues to work providing his services as a mime performer. He has just worked several jobs as a traditional white face mime as well as using his mime entertainment skills as a mime robot. have a look at our website to see pictures of him as a mime,robot plus all the entertainment and walkabout characters we provide.
We still provide great value for bookers as we can do a few characters on the same event. For example the John ball characters for when people arrive at an event and then maybe traditional white face mimes or one of our english eccentric characters.

I still continue with the Pressmen. just worked doing the fake paparazzi/spoof paparazzi at a hotel and also I have just completed doing a photoshoot for a band melody nelson. Yesterday, I took photos of them live at the 12 bar club.

mime entertainent and mime performers

For anybody involved in Mime the present time is worrying. Will the current financial climate effect bookings? Will it effect just the private sector or will it have consequences for bookings made in the public sector,festivals etc. Even an important financial hub like Dubai is going through a downturn.
What can performers do? There will be some who just stop getting work. People will drop out or try to find other ways of making a living. Others will try to focus on the business side of how they operate. How can I make the most of current clients and how can I gain access to new ones. Marketing and sales.

At mimescape we are looking at these issues. There are no easy solutions. All depends on hard work and following common sense practices. You have to talk and talk and talk some more.

So we wait and see to find out what the year will bring.

Meanwhile Brendan will be seen performing Mime on the Colleen Rooney show. This is not long after his Mime consultancy role for Big Brother. If you want to discuss Mime and what it can do for your event contact Mimescape we are considered industry experts.
