I'm not trying to defend the guy, because the audit of his class definitely rubbed me the wrong way, but I have a few working actor friends who do ongoings with him and they SWEAR by him...and they had misgivings at first too. They also swear that he has helped them get in doors. Anecdotal, but just sayin...
Rather than start a new topic I will ask this question here.
Does anyone have information on these workshop people www.oneononenyc.com ?
They operate in New York and do events in LA also such as the following:
location: Art of Acting Studio
1017 North Orange Drive
Hollywood, CA 90036

One on one isn't cheap and doesn't belong here.
This thread is for listing places that are as cheap or cheaper than the places listed on page 1.
The biggest problem with taking ANY kind of Casting Director workshops is that ALL teach from a subjective point of view. In other words, they are NOT actors, never have been so don't waste your money!
Thank you. Lots of people don't get jobs through workshops--and it can be any number of things (often that, sorry, that particular person isn't a good actor.)I can count more than a dozen of my talented friends who HAVE gotten cast directly as a result of taking a workshop. That's just how it is. ANYWAY, the website Workshop Guru offers a free one month membership, and it compiles *most* (they say all, but--yeah) of the workshops. You can search by CD, and it's not the best website but still pretty helpful.
NO serious actor goes to CD Workshops to actually learn acting!
It's a way of marketing yourself so you can get on their radar. DUH!
As shitty as it is, CD Workshops are the new generals.
Sorry Truthteller, but what you're saying is wrong regarding CD workshops as the new generals. It's your agents job to get you in for CD meetings, only wanna-bees do CD workshops.
I'm not one to sit on my ass and wait for my agents to make something happen. CDs get THOUSANDS of submissions per role because of online submissions. I prefer making my agents' jobs easier.
unless you can do them for free otherwise, it's your wasted buck.
And it's your decision to have a pre-internet mentality.
Did a workshop with Mark Teschner, CD of General Hospital, 2-1/2 years ago. Yesterday, he e-mailed to come in to audition as a body double for one of the cast members. Obviously, I'm glad he thought of me, called me in, but how does that happen after 2-1/2 years?
Actually softening my stance a little in regards to CD workshops; there are only a few I'm signed up with; The Bridge and Actors Key. As an older actor, not so easy for me to get representation, so I'm starting to think of going to a few agent showcases.
Congrats on getting called in yesterday! I hope that it went well. It would be interesting to know how he remembered you. Did you ever follow up with postcards, emails, etc.?
He called me yesterday to come in today. I absolutely have no idea how he would remember me, and still have my headshots from 2-1/2 years ago. Pretty sure they toss them after 6 months, if not right after the workshop, lol. I remember I did send him a postcard, thanking him for his time. I've thought of asking him how he came upon asking me to come in, but I don't think I will---gift horse/mouth kind of thing.
Sgt. Hulka...I hope that it went/goes well! Best of luck! Hopefully it does.
Thanks, it did. Just got back. Somewhere in the back of my mind, though, I think I our paths may have crossed another time since the workshop a few years ago. He seemed to remember me, was very nice. Although I've learned not to count on anything in this business, I left the meeting with a positive feeling that I may be called back sometime in the future. No matter; a good meeting, and that's all I could hope for.
And for what it's worth, reading the boards here for awhile, it does seem that Mark Teschner and Scott David, are two of the very few CD's that actually do bring people in after workshops.
