Commercial Talent Agent/ Manager Workshop

Start working with an agent or manager to land more auditions. Show your stuff and network with 3 of NYC's top commercial talent agents and managers. During this 2-hour workshop hosted by Brooke and Mary you will present yourself by reading commercial copy. You will also receive feed back and re-direction as well as headshot and resume critique.

This is the workshop for you if you have the chops but not the connections. If you are looking for representation there is no better way to find it than actually getting in front of agents/managers and showing them what you can do. The evening will start with a short interview followed by 2 pieces of commercial copy, provided in advance.  Feedback and re-direction is given and is followed by an open Q&A discussion.   You must have 4 head shots and resumes to attend.  All of the agents/managers in attendance are at the top agencies in New York City and work on major national network, cable, wildspot and internet commercials.  They work with both union and non-union talent. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

Brooke & Mary say: "This workshop is always a quick sell-out so sign up fast. It's a favorite of past students, many of whom got sent out on auditions and even signed after this event. If you've taken previous introductory classes and want to showcase your skills and meet some of the premiere talent agents in New York City, then this workshop is right for you."

Date: Tuesday, June 17 from 6:30-8:30pm.

Location: Envision Studio, 60 Madison Avenue, Suite 601, NYC

Cost: $225.00

Your Hosts: Brooke & Mary

Class size limited to 10 students

This is not a "pay for play" workshop. You are not guaranteed work or representation by taking this workshop.  It is designed to assist you in future auditions. It also offers you a level of comfortability and an opportunity to get feedback from industry professionals.
