Legit Workshop with Chrystie Street Casting

Up your legit game with personalized coaching from Kate Geller, casting director/associate at Chrystie Street Casting.

Based on your headshot and resume, Kate will choose a scene for you which we will email you in advance. After a short interview by Brooke and Mary, you will work on-camera with a reader and Kate will provide direction as well as feedback.  This is an opportunity to get in front of a seasoned TV and film casting director who knows what directors are looking for in a casting. 

Date: Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Time: 7:00pm- 9:00pm

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

Cost: $250

Class size limited to 10 students

Our super small 10 person class setting allows you to get acquainted with Kate and for her to get to know you and see you in action.  This is an intimate setting and not a faceless seminar.  Beverages and snacks will be provided.

Topics Covered:

-Personal headshot/resume review

-Personalized direction

-Getting your foot in the door

-Q&A session

Brooke and Mary say: "We did this workshop with Kate a few times. She called peeps in to read for a feature. Getting in front of legit casting directors isn't always easy. Being able to introduce our students to legit peeps is very important to us."

Important Notes:  You MUST have acting chops, a headshot and resume to attend this class.  This is not for beginners.

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.

While actors, comedians, and improv artists consistently sign up to our classes, we have many, many people from all walks of life, like doctors, lawyers, assistants, housewives, athletes, business professionals, art dealers, etc., etc., etc.

Thousand of our students have taken classes and we see them appearing on ad spots, television shows and film everyday.
