AS FEATURED IN

“As Rudolph sees it every actor deserves the chance to grow, learn, meet and work with industry professionals around the world from New York to Los Angeles to Atlanta to Europe and beyond. So many times she heard people say “I can’t make the workshop because I live more than five hours away” or “I can’t find a babysitter.” or “My job got in the way.” Adds Rudolph, “This always tugged at my heart.” So AGR moved its brick and mortar classroom online. (With the exception of some speciality on-camera and scene study classes.) “I wanted to take away all the stress, all the schlepping and give worldwide access to everyone. I wanted to get rid of barriers and move beyond the physical realm of an office. I wanted to invite actors from all over the world to my Field of Dreams which was only possible online,” says Rudolph. “Everyone deserves a real shot to pursue their dreams. I wanted to create a playing field and level it.” She points to the scene in Field of Dreams where Kevin Costner is playing catch. As the camera pans out all the cars are lined up for miles. “I cry every time,” she shares. “That was what I wanted. And now I’ve created it.”

But wait…I need to meet the industry in person!

The “high touch” experience is more powerful.

Not true. 

Want to know why?



 

You always book a film and tv job off a tape

 

  • Even if you meet the CD in person, you are STILL put on tape and you book OFF of a tape

  • If you get a self-tape request, you may/may not book that job BECAUSE of your self-tape

  • Jen Rudolph’s 2% Signature System™ teaches you how to literally “fly off the shelves” aka a screen

  • As an AGR Accelerator, you will gain mastery in how to execute like a 2%’er so that when you ARE called in for an audition, you will literally know how to book right off of a tape.

  • AGR Accelerator online workshops are a TRAINING GROUND like none other

  • You will develop unshakeable confidence as a result of being an AGR Accelerator

What is the format?

When you register for the class of your choice, you will receive detailed instructions and a ZOOM link 24-48 hours before the class starts. The link is unique to you so only you can use it. 

  • Click on the link a few minutes before the class and the ZOOM application will launch and prompt you to enter into the class. You will be an “attendee.” 

  • Students will be able to talk with one another via the chat and message the host as well should something arise

  • An AGR Accelerator Host will appear when the class begins and will give a brief introduction and broadcast the class into our AGR Accelerator Members Only Facebook group so that other Accelerators can live audit the class. 

  • The industry guest will then appear on the screen and will give an introductory talk. 

  • Attendees can “raise their hands” to ask questions to the guest using the Q/A. 

  • Each actor one at a time will then be asked to turn their camera on to read their scene with either our host OR if they have a reader physically there with them. The actor will only see the host on their screen. The host, the industry guest, the rest of the attendees and viewers will only see the actor on their screens.  

  • After the actor’s first read, the industry guest will come back on and give feedback. The actor will read the scene again with the adjustments. 

  • Rinse and repeat until the class is finished. 

 

 

Why did AGR decide to do this?

…because we had a vision

  • For actors EVERYWHERE to have the chance to learn and grow 

  • For access to never be denied

  • For endless opportunities  

  • For community and support like never before 

  • For actors to save mass amounts of time, money and to feel “at home” when pursuing their dreams 

  • For actors to have the chance to explore various markets without draining their bank accounts with expensive travel
