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.

Masterclass with Sarah Baskin **Audition Only**

****Auditions will be held on Friday, February 1st starting at 4PM****

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.

Price:
$40
limited to 30 spots

How to Take Control of your Next Headshot Shoot through Visual Storytelling! 

Oscar Wilde said: "Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes." The best thing about mistakes is that they allow us to learn! They are, perhaps, our best tool as we seek to becomes experts in our craft. In this 2 hour workshop, we will dissect common mistakes we as artists tend to make in head shot sittings. We will cover things like passive participation, incongruous stories and how to create strong ones, how vanity manifests in our choices and what we can do to truly embrace our imperfections and see them as positive attributes! We will look at the differences between the head shot and the print shot or portrait. We will fully excavate ourselves as types in an industry that embraces them, while still leaving space for our personal essence; our unique and wonderful personalities. At the end of the day, you will have the tools you need to realize your best shoot to date, sharing your most marketable and authentic self.

****NEW OFFERING (LIVE in person, ATTEND online OR WATCH AT YOUR CONVENIENCE)

There's no better time to take your career in your own hands with access to fellow collaborators, and cameras as simple as your iphone. As the Duplass brothers said, "make movies not meetings." Hustling and auditioning is part of the game, but the odds are far better when you can write the roles you want to play, tell the stories you want to tell, and cast yourself in your own projects. As fulfilling as an audition may be, creating your own content empowers you to act, and not wait. And it gives you the ability to take some control over your career and the direction it takes. Creativity and collaboration go hand-in-hand, and when you start building your network of fellow collaborators, you all are given the opportunity to learn and grow and come up in this industry together. What started as a web series becomes a feature, which becomes another feature, and so on. I invite you to take your career back into your own hands and get inspired to create content together on your journey, however you envision your path, and I offer you the tools, mistakes, and lessons I've learned on my own.
