Industry Masterclass Days
Here at Associated Studios, we believe it’s imperative that performers get the opportunity to work directly with industry professionals. This is why we have set up ‘Industry Masterclass Days’. The idea of these masterclasses is to give graduating students, graduates and actors the opportunity to be the room with Casting Directors and Agents, see how they work and receive feedback and advice on their performance.
In this industry, we know how hard it can be to obtain agent representation. You need to be in a show to invite agents to see, but how do you get seen for a show without an agent? It can be a vicious circle and one obstacle I’m sure, too many of us are familiar with.
We are also aware that this wonderful industry can be incredibly difficult in terms of mental health. Which is why one of the days on this ‘Industry Masterclass’ course will focus on mental health and well being within the arts. We are thrilled to be working with such wonderful charities as ‘Industry Minds’.
Places are limited on all of these masterclasses so be sure to BOOK NOW to avoid dissapointment.
