"The program consultations are fantastic. It helped me figure out exactly what changes I needed to make with my headshots and showed me which classes and seminars would be most beneficial to me."
"It was AMAZING!!! I am so appreciative for the technical guidance. The suggestions about who to work with and what classes to take were a huge blessing for me in acquiring the necessary training and essential applicable technique and skills for TV and film. The intuitive pairing of teacher and actor was a gift."
"Sitting down and talking with Melissa, one of the program consultants, was a fantastic start for me to kickstart my career in the US after having just moved from London. She was incredibly helpful and specific to my needs and helped me to understand (and make a smooth switch to) the industry here. She is brilliant!"
-Giulia Eve Flores
"A big thank you to Melissa at AC for her solid advice, expertise and time. I am now freelancing with Stefanie Talent & Entertainment. Discuss and develop your career plan. You'll be glad you did."
"Melissa provided excellent advice as to the correct next steps and progression based on one's individual experience. The classes she recommended were constructive and appropriate, but also provided a stretch for development and to move you along. Melissa is patient and elicits tremendous trust in her road map for you, providing the encouragement we all need in this process!"
"Meeting Melissa was invaluable for me to begin to navigate this business. Able to assess someone's strengths and weaknesses immediately, she tuned into the types of classes that I would need to use my time specifically at Actors Connection in the best way possible. If you want someone who is not only a kind person, but who provides the comfortability to ask all of your "stupid questions" to, Melissa is the right person to help you take your career into your own hands."
