Legit Workshop with CD Erica A. Hart

Work on-camera with Erica A. Hart on legit audition scenes.

Based on your headshot and resume, Erica will pick a scene for you to do which will be emailed to you in advance.  After a short interview by Brooke and Mary, you will work on-camera with a reader. Erica will provide direction and feedback.

This is an opportunity to get in front of the peeps that cast and book actors on major TV series and films. 

  • Date:  February 28, 2019
  • Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
  • Location: Envision Studio, 60 Madison Avenue, Suite 601
  • Cost: $250.00

Class size limited to 10 students.  Our super small 10 person class setting allows you to get acquainted with Erica and learn how she works with actors on-camera in the audition room.  This is an intimate setting, not a faceless seminar.  Beverages and snacks will be served.

Topics covered:

  • Personal headshot/resume review
  • Personalized direction
  • Getting your foot in the door
  • Open Q&A

Brooke and Mary say: “We are thrilled to have Erica at our workshop.  She was with us in the past when she was at ABC.  We are not allowed to tell you where she is now but it's a VERY prominent office.  This is a no brainer!!!”

Important Notes: This is not for beginners.  This is for actors who are confident and ready to show what they've got.  You must have acting chops.  A headshot and resume is required.  This workshop sells out fast!!!

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.
