For actors seeking representation, we have an agent seminar with Paula Poeta of The Mine. Actors will take part in an industry Q&A with Paula and then meet and perform a contemporary monologue for her one-on-one. The Mine is has a great track record and Paula is one of the nicest agents you could meet.
And speaking of looking for an agent, perhaps you need a little guidance on how to find an agent. That is why we are offering the special online webinar, “How to Find an Agent,” with Michael Rodriguez, owner of The Roster Agency. Michael will be going over the dos and don’ts of find representation. The best part is you can view this webinar from any computer at any time.
