The Who and What of AGR
GET TO KNOW US
HERE AT THE ACTOR'S GREEN ROOM, WE OFFER...
AND THAT'S WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT!
Like most actors, you probably have an idea of the kind of career you want to have. Perhaps you want to be on the silver screen, or in people's homes on television, or on Broadway. Regardless, you want to be living out your passion but you don't know how to do it and furthermore how to do it effectively. You want to WORK.
That's where we come in.
So what makes us different than our competition? Well, for one, we provide free purified water at our classes and intensives. :)
We nurture our students both personally and professionally (with business/casting director workshops/etc AND we offer holistic classes that focus on the inner work) thus providing an optimal full spectrum experience known as #theagrexperience.
We believe that there is enough for everyone and in the power of community.
We believe in the yin/yang of things - that one cannot play an instrument optimally if there is dust inside of it. We focus on training AND making sure one's instrument is free and clear of anything that could block its success.
Open Door Policy
We welcome both newbies and seasoned actors. Whether you are just getting into the business and want to learn all there is to know or have a heavy resume and are looking to get to that next level, our classes & events offer opportunities for both.
No membership fees
We don't believe in fees. We just believe in YOU.
With day and night intensives topping out at 16 students per class, we create a supportive, laidback, professional atmosphere where our students and guests thrive.
Unique class set up/simulate the audition process
Unlike at any other place, we set our classes and intensives up to simulate the audition process. One student at a time goes into our studio to work on camera with the guest CD and our reader while the rest of the class watches the process on a monitor from the main room.
No monologues. Not ever
At every class and/or event, we provide current film & television scenes along with an outstanding working actor to support you in your process. Scenes really allow actors to connect and show their stuff whereas monologues do not.
The ability to choose your own sides
Sometimes our guests like to assign their own sides but sometimes...you get to come to the table with your own! We provide current film & television scenes (often times along with character breakdowns) for you to choose from. Know thyself as an actor and choose material that suits you and allows you to shine in your most organic light. If you have had a Career Consultation with either Jen Rudolph or Josh Hemphill you will be able to use those sides as well.
Fantastic staff and readers
When you come to The Actor's Green Room you will be greeted by familiar, friendly faces - not random strangers. Our staff is incredibly warm and supportive and will help you with anything you need. They are also all working actors. The members of our staff work in the various mediums (film, television, theatre and commercials) and often serve as readers at ABC, NBC, FOX and so on. This means that when you take a class, intensive or attend a 1 night event with us that you will be in very good hands and will be supported by an excellent reader.
The ability to meet 10 agents/CD's in one night
Agents and CD's know within one or two minutes whether they want to take things further with an actor. It's like a first date. Our 1 Night Events are the proverbial drink that you would have with someone before committing to a 3 hour dinner. If there is a connection, THEN things can and will be taken further. We provide our actors with the opportunity to meet 10 agents and CD's all in one night and receive written feedback on their work/presentation. Our events produce tremendous results and our guests love that they can meet a wide range of talent in one evening.
Only top industry
Want to meet the casting directors of top episodics or for major feature films? No problem. We got 'em on our roster. Want to meet the best agents and managers from all over the industry? You shall. Our guests flock to us as they love our vibe, our formats, and the talent that we bring to them.
HD QuickTime videos
We email every class student their on-camera work (often times before each class is even over) in the form of a High Definition QuickTime movie. Watch it, save it and review it later...our class benefits are timeless.
It's not business, it's personal
Here at The Actor's Green Room, we want to know you. We want to talk to you and make you feel at home. We develop relationships with all of our actors and make everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Why? Because we care. We are not a machine. We are human beings who take pride in what we do and in you.
