This was really a blast. I loved the exercises! I really liked how the material covered all areas on one's life. Many creative workshops/methods seem to focus on one area. This material is awesome and will benefit anyone!

This workshop was well-prepared and thought out... I loved the structure and I feel inspired!
 ~ Tamara

I loved all the personal experience sharing and getting materials to work with and take notes on. Monica was very organized and had a clear plan! 
~ Anna

Monica struck a great balance between presenting her own ideas/observations/acquired wisdom and getting us to participate 
though activities and discussion.

This was a very nurturing atmosphere! Monica's warm personality made it feel like a safe place.

Friday, April 8th 
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
at
36th Street Studio
260 West 36th Street
3rd Floor

Amy's first workshop was such a success that she's decided to take it one step farther....
One on One Meetings!
 
Amy Gossels specializes in commercial casting
and the focus of this second workshop will be
to improve your commercial audition technique
one on one.

The workshop will start with a group Q & A session,
then Amy will work with each actor individually.
 
Each actor will be given commercial copy
to read for productive and constructive feedback.
You will be given a chance to make adjustments,
the goal being that each actor improves
in significant ways and is thus more 
capable of booking commercial work!

By meeting Amy, those of you who stand out will have a better chance of being brought in for actual commercial auditions in the future since casting directors tend to give preference to actors they have met and whose work they know first hand.

You'll come away from this experience with an extraordinary amount of new and valuable insight into commercial technique 
and will feel so much better equipped to go out and actually book commercial work!
