Agent Showcases worth it??? I did two of them with NYCastings and got two agents, got signed exclusively with Courtney McCotter at BMG. I got auditions for national commercials in the first couple of weeks, booked a role on a TV show for next week, and a Netflix pilot that shoots in July and August!! Damn right they’re worth it. Thank you NYCastings! – M. Connell
I recently attended Angela Mickey’s On-Camera Commercial Acting class. I received a lot of valuable acting pointers and advice. When the class ended, I was encouraged to attend the Commercial Talent Showcase. Within days of attending the showcase I was signed by one of the agents. I am now receiving job opportunities on a continual basis. NYCastings is extremely proactive in helping clients to succeed. I will continue to use them as a resource for professional and personal advancement. I encourage anyone looking to break into commercial acting to work with NYCastings. Thank you so much for helping me receive this amazing opportunity! – Peter Z.
After attending the commercial showcase, I was contacted by Jaime Baker Management and have begun freelancing with them. This showcase is a wonderful opportunity to be seen by multiple agents/managers. NY Castings keeps the workshop size smaller than other classes I’ve been to which makes you feel like you get a fair amount of time to read and incorporate feedback from the agents. Tina and Aron create a warm and welcoming environment–they really care about actors and want to see them succeed. It makes it easy to have an open discussion about everyone’s work so you really can learn and understand the audition process and what agents are looking for. – Regina R.
I have been doing plays and singing from age 6. I was turning 16 soon and I wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. In my heart, I knew I was ready. My parents signed me up for the Film & TV Showcase at NYCastings. I met with five of the top agencies and performed my monologue. All the agents were very professional and provided good feedback. I was soon signed to a multi-year contract by an agency I performed for. I have already been on a movie shoot and I know there is a lot more to come! Tina was awesome. She is very helpful and encouraging. – Collin K. L.
Through NYCastings Agent Showcase I was able to meet and receive feedback from top agents in New York City – luckily I ended up being represented by one of them as a result! Thank you Tina and the rest of the team at NYCastings for setting up this amazing opportunity! – R. Martin
My very first showcase was with NYCastings. I auditioned in front of five agents and afterwards, received so much information on the business as well as critical feedback on my performance. After some follow-up emails, I was invited to meet with Gina Manfredi of DDO and David McDermott of Jordan, Gill, and Dornbaum! A huge shoutout to Tina for the support, she’s amazing! – Sean. M. H.
I had an amazing time! It was the best opportunity I’ve had to be able to showcase myself to these top agents in the industry. I will definitely be back for other upcoming showcases at The Studio at NYCastings. Thank you! – Armand M.
NYCastings brings in only the top people in our industry. They help to put the right people behind the table for actors to ask the tough questions. It’s nice to know that they want their actors to succeed. They strive to set us up for success with the proper industry professionals. I would not have met my current Manager if it were not for their platform that they provided. It is definitely worth the time and energy to take classes with NYCastings and stay up to date with whatever they may be offering. Thank you Aron and Tina for the great evening and for helping connect me to, what would become, my first representation in the city.” – Jesse M.

“This was a well worth it event! The casting directors provided great personal feedback that will help you in the long run. They were all honest about the entertainment and the business side of the industry. I definitely recommend this to anyone trying to get the right l head start getting their feet wet when it comes to auditions and obtain longevity success in this industry.” – Thelma H.
Through NYCastings, I had the ability to meet with reputable agents and casting directors in NYC, a really exciting experience for me as an actor working in the Southeast for several years. I learned the the acceptable audition standards for the area and what is expected of me if I’m to make it in the NY acting market, including being a self-driver on your career. I attended multiple agent showcases and landed a manager with Zanee entertainment. It’s been a long ride but NYCastings has been my go to source of acting classes and has been a great opportunity to establish connections in the area. Tina has also been an incredible help and connection to have, and has helped me navigate this crazy landscape. I owe a lot to their services and am excited to attend further classes and showcases with them. – Jacob L.
