Talent agents, who obtained an employment license and are franchised with SAG and AFTRA, are invited to come in on a weekly basis. Those agents teach workshops. We are the institution with the strongest agents presence in the country, as the teacher/talent relationship creates magic. A lot of our graduates obtain representation in such way. However, Screen Actor LA’s does not a guaranty representation, nor is it a guaranty of employment.

Again, the most important aspect of the agents’ presence at the Institute, is that they come in to conduct weekend workshops. They coach the talent, emulating the auditioning process. Such auditioning process is specific and it allows our Shakespearean, trained graduate to use those skills for on camera auditions. The agents are able to reconcile the classical training, which is done with fun and in a recreational way, while giving the children amazing acting skills, with the on hand experience as per the auditions. The auditioning skills, which is what the agents allow for our graduates to obtain, are literally what solidifies the roof over the performance house.
