"As you know I had a meeting with Orion, and turns out we vibed so well that we both decided to give it a go. I'm signed across the board with Rogers Orion Talent Agency!! He sent me out almost immediately. I already had a callback for a McDonalds national commercial, and I had a 2nd callback for a production of The Mountaintop being produced at San Diego Rep!! Who said good theatre was only in NYC? Also, Scott David called me in to a producers session for a co-star on Criminal Minds. Good things are happening, & much of it is directly attributed to the industry guests I met while at the LA Connection. It is a program that works and can garner results for those who are serious about advancing in their career. My fellow cohorts in the program were also a valuable resource. I was surprised to find out how much I could learn from my peers. They are people who become not only fast friends, but potential collaborators in the future as well. Christopher is a mentor who encourages success of each and every person in the program. His fervor and enthusiasm is a motivating force parallel to none. Anything is possible with this man in your corner. ;-) Thanks for making this possible, Christopher."



Jade"I want to thank you for arranging LA Connection. This showcase was the BEST way I can imagine possible to transition to the LA market. The number of guests we met and the caliber of all of them was extraordinary and overwhelming! It would've taken me over a year, at least, to meet all of the people we met in only 7 days because each day was so jam-packed with workshops with top LA casting directors. I also am happy and grateful to have met agent, Orion Barnes of Rogers Orion Talent Agency at LA Connection who has since signed me across the board! I have heard many actors can go years once they arrive in LA before signing with an agent, but LA Connection enabled me to get signed only one month after moving here! I can't say enough good things about LA Connection as the perfect transition into the LA market for any actor. I also want to acknowledge how WONDERFUL you personally made the experience; your enthusiasm and passion for actors shined in the weeks leading up to and throughout our boot camp week in LA. Thank you for all of your work, and if you are an actor who is SERIOUS about making it in LA - LA Connection is the way to get started! I can't wait to see where it all leads. Thanks, Christopher! "


Dana
"As someone who took a six year hiatus from the industry, this was the best career move of my life. Going to LA with Actors Connection, not only allowed me to make connections with casting directors and agents, but it rejuvenated my spirit, my hunger to succeed, and my confidence as an actor. It can be helpful to uproot yourself from your home-base in order to get a different perspective from the other coast, whether you decide to move to LA or not. I ended up getting called in by Orion Barnes from the Rogers Orion Agency, and also made lifelong friends and industry connections with the other actors in my group. All and all LA Connection was a beneficial and fruitful experience."


Lauren S
"I too wanted to thank you for all of your careful planning and detailed efforts on the Actors Connection LA Trip. Not only did I have an incredible time, get a high speed, condensed intro to LA, and meet tons of people, but I was also called in by 2 casting directors and booked one of the jobs. All that and I now have a circle of tight-knit, supportive, wonderful people here in Los Angeles. As a result, two of those people are now my partners in a new production company and we have written the first draft of our first feature screenplay. All this in a matter of 3 months from setting foot on Cali soil. You have helped me to change the trajectory of my life and career. Thank you."

AMB2
"I wanted to thank you again for all the patience, time, and planning you put into the LA Connection. Thank You. I just booked a Guest Star role on Chuck through Todd Sherry! Again, Thank You. Now the SAG goal is achieved. We shoot next Friday! The LA Connection has just paid for itself !"


sal
"This has been life changing and I just wanted to put into words how wonderful the LA Connection experience was. I have been telling all my LA friends about it and they can't believe the jump start I got into the LA market. After the LA Connection week, Bob Lambert called me in to be a recurring hospital intern on All My Children, Sherie Hernandez called me in for the new series Free Agents and I got called in for a meeting with Brian Duensing from Talentworks. Thanks again !"


Amanda
"Just got back to NYC and wanted to write to thank you again, so much, for everything you did for us during LA Connection. It was such an amazing experience! I'm so excited to be moving to LA ASAP and that decision had so much to do with how wonderful LA Connection was for me. Not only the industry people we met, but also the other incredible actors I got to work with and who I can now call family - seriously. So, thank you again."


Andy
"I want to thank you so very much for everything you've done and continue to do for this program and all of us 'strangers in a strange land.' As I constantly rave about the whole experience to my friends and family, I realize over and over that on my own, I could never have seen, talked to, and auditioned for the sheer number and quality of guests you presented to me last week. I hope I was able to live up to your reputation and help you shine in their eyes even more than you already do. I'm living here in LA now, so please, please don't hesitate to ask if there's ever anything I can do for you. What you have done for me is priceless."



Wilder
"Thank you so much for including me in this amazing program. I truly had a blast! I learned so much in the past week and I also feel an enormous confidence boost in my auditioning skills. The program you put together was truly magical and I'm already deep in withdrawal. You were such a positive support and the heart of the group. I am so excited to see what the future holds for all of us. I'm looking forward to more LA programs for Actors Connection! Being in this program truly made me feel like taking my acting career to the next level is possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you! "



Stacie
"Thank you so much for everything this week! The workshops were amazing! This opportunity meant a great deal to me, and I am truly appreciative. You have been extremely supportive, kind, and generous to me. Your believing in me helped me believe in myself, which is an invaluable gift. I will never forget it. Yesterday, I booked a role on Criminal Minds! It's no coincidence that I had just seen Scott David at LA Connection, which, of course, was because of you! Thank you so much !!!"





zach
"I just had to thank you again for what was truly an INCREDIBLE week. I did some of the best work I have ever done for the casting directors, agents, and managers, and it was because you set the tone for us on the very first day we all met each other as well as your role in the program throughout the entire week. I could not have done it without such a wonderful support system. Thank you so much."
