In our weekly classes we already train our students in the art of performance and acting, as well as mentor each individual on the business side of Show Business. We are so excited to announce the launch of a new program called Creative Actors Emergence This new program will take our students to the next level and set them up for success in larger markets.
Creative Actors Emergence culminates in a week long trip to Los Angeles with a talent showcase for agents, managers, and casting directors. The trip will also include a casting director workshop where you will perform a cold read with critiques from the casting director. This trip will provide face-to-face introductions to LA agents, managers, and casting directors. We also plan to audit at least one acting studio so the students can potentially find a new place of study for when they make their big move. The goal is to visit a major market with 10 students every 12-18 months.
Other activities include a day at Universal Studios, attending the set/recording of a major TV show, and a Missouri Meet-Up where we will have dinner with fellow Missouri actors and filmmakers now living in LA.
The cost and timeline of this program are still being researched and finalized. The cost will cover coaching, mentoring, airfare, lodging, our talent showcase, and the casting director workshop. The students will be responsible for their food, public transportation, and any tourist activities. We anticipate taking our first trip to LA in the fall of 2016 or early 2017. These are the current requirements for participating in Creative Actors Emergence:
-Current Student at Creative Actors
-Audition for 1 of the 10 spots
-2 contrasting clips of demo reel material
-Profiles on Actors Access & Casting Networks
-Official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter profiles
