You Are Only As Good As Your Scene!
Thu August 6, 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!

ONE ON ONE|CD Assoc - Allen Hooper: $50.00 | Platinum: $45.00 
Please check CastingAbout.com and IMDB!! We cannot say his show.
Sat September 12, 1:00 PM
Allen is wonderfully passionate about acting and spends detailed and attentive time with each actor. Here are some quotes from actors who've taken his workshop.


"Had a very great one on one chat after my scene about what type of roles he would cast me in."


"Best cash I've ever laid down for a CD workshop. Gives the best question and answer I've ever attended. His individual feedback is super thoughtful. Wish every CD took the work as seriously."


"Very funny, honest, gave great feedback, spent ample time with every single actor, taught us a ton of useful information about what his office is looking for and about comedic acting in general that was all very helpful. He also gave me feedback about my type, which was extremely eye-opening and valuable."


Allen has worked in casting for the last 10+ years, primarily on 1/2 hour TV comedies, both single and 4-camera. Further details can be found at IMDB.


Actors should either pick their sides (one-on-one material) from those available at his web-site, www.allenhooper.com or they can bring their own material.” If you use something else, please send a copy to info@castingnetworkla.com so we can forward it to Allen.


SPECIAL NOTE: Since Allen gives such a fabulous information, we are going to hold a group Q&A at 1pm and schedule the One-on-Ones beginning at 2pm. You are NOT required to come to the Q&A, but we highly recommend it. Extremely entertaining and informative!
