JBCN website under construction?
trying to find low rates for scott david.. i see $60.00 at actors key
He's $50 at Actors Company.
And $40 at Acting Bridge with a $10/year membership
Well, you would figure that he would be extremely inexpensive, or do free workshops at the ActorsLink... because he OWNS it.
I have done MANY workshops over the years and they have been productive for me in the way of co-starring roles. But when a CD decides to open his own workshop place, it does make me pause about just how lucrative workshops are for CDs and now agents.
I also think that workshops are a good way to make CD relationships when you are first starting out and need to add quality co-star credits to your resume, but also believe there is a time when you have to stop doing them in order to not be labeled a "workshop actor."
I have several incidences (me and my friends) where CDs we've met in workshops YEARS ago have known and booked us, and although we have moved up to top-of-show guest starring spots, the CDs will still call us in just for one line co-stars. It's as though they can't see us past the workshop "level."
When one of my friend's agents turned down a one-line co-star audition stating she had just got off her 3rd TOS and he was pushing her for only guests and recurring, this CD told him that he "KNEW she needed the gig because she was a workshop actor!" On the other end though, I know an 40-something actor who is VERY WELL established and books guests all the time, yet still does workshops and is a big advocate for them. I will say this though, he remains loyal to his "starter agency" and I think with his resume and body of work, if he were to go to a more established agency, he would never need to do another workshop again.
What works for some, doesn't for others. I think they are a necessary evil, yes. However, when CD's start opening up their own workshop places, it does give me more of a chill down my spine. Brrrrrr.
I agree. Gross!
Acting Bridge and
The Casting Network are the cheapest ones in the Valley.
Almost every workshop is $29 at Acting Bridge, and almost every workshop is under $35 at the Casting Network.
ITA is the cheapest place the westside, (almost all under $35) but they have a $45/year membership fee.
I second The Acting Bridge as the cheapest place to do workshops. Previously a bunch were $29, now most seem to be in the range of $35, with a few still being $29. Scott David's is $45 there. There's a starting $10 membership fee from what I recall.
They do credit package deals where you can get more credit than you pay for (i.e. $240 for $300). There's also a $30 referral bonus in which both you and the person who referred you will get a $30 credit granted the new person enrolls in at least one class. That being said, if anyone reads this post and decides to hit up the Acting Bridge, PM me and use me as a referral! ^^
