Casting Educational Sessions Weekend

I am always brainstorming on how to create better opportunities for talent to educate themselves on the industry and how to grow their careers. As well as keeping budgets in mind. So in October I am experimenting with a weekend of four 3 hour workshops that you can pick and choose from depending on your interests. If this is successful I will continue it on a regular basis. This should allow for us to offer more specialized classes that would not always fill enough to warrant it's own weekend. 

Each 3 hour session will cost $150. So if there is only one that interests you that is all you need to take. I will do a weekend pass at $500 for all 4 sessions if they are all of interest to you. If you have multiple children in the same family interested you can message me about options.

Josh has coached a number of our talent via skype with excellent results. 

​Joshua has been teaching acting in Los Angeles since 2003. He has been a teacher or assistant at some of the most popular, well respected, and expensive acting schools in Hollywood. His classes offer some of the best value you can find in Los Angeles. What sets him apart from many other acting coaches in town, is that he is putting his process into action himself. He is currently working on some of the best shows on T.V, with 2015 being one of his best years to date. Joshua teaches actors of all ages and skill sets his process with the material. He covers what to do from the time you get the script, until you are shooting it on the screen. It gives the actor a consistent way to approach the material and master the material in a timely fashion, since most auditions give less than 48 hours notice. His clients have booked series regular roles, guest stars, co stars, and feature films.
