You Are Only As Good As Your Scene!
Wed July 8, 7:00 PM
You can be the best actor in town, but if you don't have the right scene, no one else will know it!


The number one constructive criticism by Casting Directors, after a workshop, is that many actors choose scenes that are not right for them. At The Casting Network, we've been working with actors and scenes since 1989, and we know what works. We can help you pick your best scene and hone it for success.


In addition to being regular readers at The Casting Network, Aubrey Manning and Ben Zelevansky are working actors who have experienced first-hand the value of casting director workshops. Sign up for their FREE Scene Workout, and you'll have a chance to pick their brains on everything from your scene choice to your headshots to your performance to your workshop strategy...and anything else you can think of!


Aubrey will guide you with your drama scenes, while Ben will handle comedy. To see them in action, check out Aubrey's reel and Ben's reel!

KILLIAN'S COMMERCIAL WORKSHOP- for KIDS!: $220.00 | Platinum: $220.00 
Back by Popular Demand!
Sat July 11, 10:00 AM
When: 4 Week program, Saturdays 10am-11:30am


Who: Young actors ages 8-12yo


Price: $220 for 4 weeks, and the last class we do an audition for the kids to be viewed by AHC Inc. Casting office. So it's more than a class, it's also a showcase !


Philosophy: Kids should be kids!! :)


Killian: "The class is structured and created, by myself, based on our day to day castings for kids; giving them the tools to cope with the audition environment, i.e. slating, different types of copy, improv situations etc. However, MOST importantly, is that the kids have fun and develop a love for the audition process. When kids understand the process and LOVE the process, they automatically develop a confidence that shines through in their audition.


I don't believe kids should have a "job". If a kid decides they want to try acting, it should be a supportive fun extra curricular activity. The audition should be the fun part, and their happiness should not be based on a booking! By this I mean, parents should not be pressuring their children to book a job. At this age it should be a fun "hobby" and bookings are icing on the cake. When the audition as seen as the win, bookings will follow naturally! As a Casting Director at one of the busiest offices in this city, I can tell you that when we are casting kids the majority of our time is spent undoing the damage done by the workshops who are trying to turn kids into "polished professionals". Again, KIDS SHOULD BE KIDS !! :)


The class is taught by my Foundation's Class teacher Jaret Sacrey. Jaret is a working actor and director in L.A. He's won 5 Telly Awards for his national commercials starring kids. He's booked numerous national commercial campaigns as an actor. Right now you can see him in both a Dell commercial and a hilarious spot for Compare Cards. He also works in commercial casting in LA and has taken all of my classes. He is one of my highly requested Foundations Teachers."

"...I attended their 2 day intensive in San Diego hoping I would leave with one or two new things to apply to my auditions and my expectations were quadrupled, quintupled, it was awesome!” Mike Brayden


"I used Rene's technique on slating in my last two auditions. Two callbacks, one booking. Thank you!" Matt Riedy


"After I took René's commercial class, I booked my next audition...it was a national Geico commercial! You can't get better results from a class than that!" Deena Dill


"I was having trouble booking or getting callbacks, so I decided to try coaching with René because her resume is about a mile long and knows how to book. I coached with her on 4 auditions in the span of a week and had callbacks for 3 of them. She helped me specifically with my auditions and more generally on how to be relaxed and prepared going into the room and I just booked my first SERIES REGULAR role." Bret Green
