Masterclass with Sarah Baskin **Audition Only**

SOLD OUT!

This new class is to create a space for trained, high level actors, who want to go on a six week journey to connect more deeply with the craft they love and engage fully in their work. It’s about helping you find and identify and move through that which is cutting you off from your authentic craft. Auditioning, writing roles for yourself, and marketing are not the same as acting. All these things are creative, but what most actors love to do is act, to be fully engaged in a character, story, and experience. We might not have a current project that feels like it's fulfilling that need, or we might want a safe space to "fail" or explore deeper ways of working. This class is intended to allow people to unplug from the industry, from other people's expectations of them so that they can engage fully.

Power B*tch with Jessica Blank

Power B*tch with Jessica Blank 

IMore and more great roles are being written for women, especially on TV.  The range we can play is expanding: we get to be military captains, political leaders, detectives, deans and CEOs; women who hold power in their families, their communities, and their workplaces. But as a coach, director and on-camera teacher, I've noticed that a lot of actresses have trouble stepping fully into these roles--and it's not because of any flaw in their acting or lack of access to their own personal power. It's because in the world of auditioning--especially as women--we're taught to make sure people like us.  And there's still a lot of voices out there that say if we fully express our power, people might not like us so much. So when we get asked to play high-status women, we unconsciously inhibit our own power, not wanting to be seen as a "bitch"--which gets in the way of fully playing the scene. This class will help you change the narrative and come into your full potential as a POWER B*TCH

Holy Sh*t it's Pilot Season with Jessica Blank and AGR Founder Jen Rudolph

"Pilot season." It's one of the most mythologized times in our business for actors--the two months out of the year when supposedly those Series Regular roles are the most accessible, when there's ten times the TV work because networks are casting way more shows than will ever make it on the air, where audition volume is the highest and everything is up for grabs.  Many actors center a year's worth of expectation and emotional energy on these two months, agonizing over whether to go to LA, how to communicate with their reps during this crazy time, whether they're getting enough volume, how to know if they're getting in for everything that's available, what to do if they're unrepresented, and whether it's possible to keep building with CDs during the busiest time of the year.
