I really enjoyed the program. Every class was very different and interesting in their own way. It also gave me a huge idea and understanding of how the industry works in America. And it gave me some motivation to really move over here.

This has been a great opportunity to network and meet people who are currently working in the business. It was valuable to learn some of the differences ad personal perspectives of the individual casting directors and to get one on one critique and feedback from them. Everyone was knowledgeable and their anecdotes were especially interesting…a nice insight into the day-to-day lives in the business

Thank you for facilitating such a great course. The content and real industry exposure and feedback was invaluable. I had a fantastic and memorable experience. And lastly, I was offered the lead role in the film I auditioned for while at the program. Audition I got from meeting one of the casting directors attending. With this job offer, I can secure my work visa. So once again, thank you so much. It is like winning the lottery.
