READY FOR NEW YORK?

About This Class

I love Philly. I absolutely do. Part of what I love about Casting in Philadelphia is the tight-knit industry community. I also love that Philly Actors can live a relatively affordable lifestyle and still be very close to New York City. You pretty much have the opportunity to work in two major cities for the price of one. 

That said, every city is different and there are important distinctions to make between how to book work here, versus there.

Let me tell you, with Casting being about 100% online, now is the time to be opening yourself up to the NYC market. You don’t even have to commute to audition or take class, so you can spend that saved-time doing more to create those relationships in NYC. 

That’s why I’ve asked Mel Mack, Casting Director and founder of Mel Mack Acting Studio to host a masterclass for us on how to transition to the NYC-audition-circuit: Are You Ready for NYC? 

In this Masterclass, Mel will break down for you:

  • What do you need to effectively market yourself in NYC?

  • What are the top 3 things NYC-based agents are looking for when they want to sign you?

  • How does Casting differ between Philly and NYC?

  • And more. 

 

After over 25 years in Casting, and over a decade of that time in NYC, Mel is committed to giving you the tools you need to make the transition and expand your market into the Big Apple.
