Welcome to ELEVATE: The AGRtist Mastermind Program. ELEVATE is the essential online school for anyone anywhere out of school pursuing a career in the business.
With online mastery courses (new courses added every month), soul-lifting content as well as ongoing top level mentorship, Elevate is designed to create more successful, more fulfilled actors by offering them tools and mindful skills to crush the business-side of "the business" as well as bring their acting/audition technique to the next level.
Actors often spend tens of thousands of dollars trying to figure out how to get ahead. Many eventually throw in the towel, become resentful or depressed thinking that this business is insurmountable. We are here to change all that. By enrolling in ELEVATE, you will be ensuring that you are at the top of your inner and outer game.
ELEVATE IS $300 per year or $35 per month.

Here's what AGRtists are saying about Jen Rudolph's 26 Week Marketing Course:
"These classes in marketing and branding booked me my first agent! When we met he said he called me in based on my website because it was polished, professional, and contained footage that represented me well. He said that was huge considering he hadn’t seen my work in person and was comfortable sending this over to CDs..... mind you I submitted to this agency multiple times before I polished it up, and when I finally did was when I was called in! Thank you Jen!"
- agrtist kristina horan
"Ever since I brought my marketing up and my clear-headedness to the game, I've been getting alot of self-tape/call-ins! Thanks to your lessons, Jen!"

WEEK ONE: THE BODY
How does nervous energy manifest in your body? How does your body fail you in the audition room when nerves are present? We will explore how to use this energy to infuse new life and spontaneity into the audition process. How to work with the cumulation of that energy and why it shows up as it does. We will find tools for mastering this energy and bringing it to character.
WEEK TWO: THE MIND
Are you so in your process and memorized choice that you lose your sense of play?
Do you begin feeling self conscious and watch your own audition instead of being in your body? We will look at how to harness the mind to choose, focus and sustain your focus on the story and character so that you can be fully present and tuned in.
WEEK THREE: THE SPIRIT
Learn how your nerves are pointing you to your internal power. Learn to bring your full present self into the room — sure of your choices and talent and allow your inner light to guide the process of discovery and play.
| AND INTRODUCING BRAND NEW CLASS |
from actor to creator
with Jen Rudolph + Jessica Blank
Do you want to walk into auditions and workshops giving off the irresistibly attractive energy of an empowered artist in their creative flow? Are you sick of waiting for someone to give you a job and just want to work? Are you tired of grasping for control of your own creative path and ready to take the reins? Have you been hearing the "make your own work" refrain everywhere but don't know where to get started?
I HAVE ONE MESSAGE FOR YOU: YOU CAN DO IT.
THE SHIFT FROM ACTOR TO CREATOR
...is first and foremost a shift in perspective.
Making this shift requires shifts in self-concept, expansion of creative courage, and the practice of new creative habits.
This class will lay out why making your own work is crucial to your success as an actor (hint: it's not just about exposure!), break down the false assumptions that make us feel disempowered as actors, and show you concrete ways to immediately shift those assumptions and take the reins of your creative career.
HOW TO REALLY MAKE YOUR OWN WORK
In this class, we get into the nuts and bolts you need to know in order to make your own work. We will break down "how the sausage gets made" for every scripted medium--webseries, short film, feature film, plays, solo work, and TV. We will talk about the basic structures of each character-based story form, how they are built, and how work in each form actually gets made with an eye toward making those processes accessible to you as a creator and helping you understand how your role as an actor fits in to each medium.
CHARACTER BASED STORY STRUCTURE : MAKING OF THE SCRIPT
In this class, you'll gain a powerful foundation for storytelling that's grounded in what you already know about story as an actor. As actors, you have intuitive understandings about certain aspects of story that can take professional writers lifetimes to learn. In this class, I'll introduce you to tools to use what you already know to start building story in theater, film, and episodic forms.
