HOW TO BOOK CO-STARS: 4 WEEK INTENSIVE: $280.00 | Platinum: $260.00 
MAKE EVERY CO STAR AUDITION COUNT
Thu September 8, 7:30 PM
How to Book Co-Stars: 4-WEEK Intensive (skipping Memorial Day)


LIMITED TO 8 ACTORS!


Ask any casting director and they will say that Co-Star roles are the hardest to book. The role could be just about anyone, so who are they looking for? And because it's only a line or two, what can you do with it? There are so many choices you could make, often many actors make no choice at all.


Co-Stars require opinion and characterization, but they also require an understanding of your role within the story. How do you make strong choices, blend in, make them notice you, move the story along, and not make the scene about you, all simultaneously?


In other words, HOW DO YOU BOOK THE STUPID THINGS?!?!?


Jamison Haase and Jackie Geary have shot more than 25 co-stars between them and want to show you how to book these elusive yet crucial roles. Two weeks will be spent with Jamison, where he will open your eyes to the THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DRAMATIC CO-STAR, while working on several different sides. Learn how to make interesting and bold choices that serve the story, but stay out of the way of the story.


The other two weeks will be spent with Jackie, who will work with you on the THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMEDY CO-STAR, helping you to determine just how funny the writers need and want you to be in a given role. OF COURSE, EVERYTHING IS ON-CAMERA, AND YOU ARE GUARANTEED TO WILL WORK MULTIPLE TIMES EACH CLASS!


Jamison Haase has been teaching actors the tips and techniques required for hour-long television and dramatic features, since 2007. His simple practical on-camera and audition techniques build confidence and allow actors to be creative, in control, and powerful in the audition and on set.


Jamison has worked opposite Robert Duvall, Robert Downey Jr., Billy Bob Thornton, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Cliff Curtis. He's been seen in many films and television shows, notably AMERICAN CRIME STORY, NCISLA, CASTLE, BONES, 24, MAD MEN, the feature films THE JUDGE, and the fourth installment of the TRANSFORMERS.


Jackie Geary is a familiar face on television, seen recently on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, as well as WEEDS, SUBURGATORY, RIZZOLI & ISLES, BONES, CASTLE, THE UNITED STATES OF TARA, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, and in the memorable "Fanilow" episode of WILL & GRACE. She is also known for her recurring role as quirky agent Susan Grady on NCIS. Recent features include a supporting role in Roland Emmerich's, WHITE HOUSE DOWN.

KILLIANS COMMERCIAL WORKSHOP- for KIDS!: $250.00 | Platinum: $230.00 
Agents Refer Their Youth Actors to this Great Class!
Sat September 10, 10:00 AM
Everyone knows Killian's Commercial Workshop is the hottest training for booking commercials in LA.


Our own Jaret Sacrey is a highly requested Foundations Teacher at Killians CW. He is also an award winning director of commercials starring kids, has booked over 50 national commercials himself and works in commercial casting for the best casting houses in LA.


Now he's teaching Killian's Commercial Kids Class, exclusively at The Casting Network!


When: 4 Week program, Saturdays, September 10 - October 1st, 10am-11:30am


Who: Young actors ages 8-12yo


Price: $250 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 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.


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 !!"


WE ALSO INVITE THE KIDS TAKING THIS COURSE INTO OUR COMMERCIAL AGENT SHOWCASE, WHEN THEY ARE READY.

ON-CAMERA COMEDY INTENSIVE: $280.00 | Platinum: $260.00 
4 Weeks of Superb TV Comedy Training
Wed October 5, 7:30 PM
Jackie Geary breaks down how to be funny almost mathematically. Ninety percent of all funny stems from what we call opposites (or reversals); and while these are discussed in many comedy classes, Jackie's class is the only one that breaks down all the different KINDS of them -- how to spot those given to you by the writer, how to create them on your own, and how to create more of them than ANYONE else will. Cause even if the funniest read doesn't BOOK you the job, it's what will be remembered. And what will get you brought back in. That's the name of the game.


She'll also break down her 4 essential components for a comedic scene, and the 18 tools she uses to make any read complete. IMDb her -- even when you see a dramatic credit listed, she's been cast as the comedic relief. She knows how to book comedy. Let her show you how :)


Every student is guaranteed to WORK TWICE EVERY CLASS!


Jackie Geary is a familiar face on television, appearing on 'HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER,' 'WEEDS,' 'SUBURGATORY,' 'RIZZOLI & ISLES,' 'BONES,' 'CASTLE,' 'THE UNITED STATES OF TARA,' 'HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER,' and in the memorable "Fanilow" episode of 'WILL & GRACE.' She is also known for her recurring role as quirky agent Susan Grady on 'NCIS.' Recent features include a supporting role in Roland Emmerich's 'WHITE HOUSE DOWN.'


She credits her analytical Ivy League education (Bard), combined with her love of comedy, for the technique she teaches in her On-Camera Comedy intensive.
