1:00pm – 2:15pm: “Actor, Writer, Producer, Director: How to Wear All the Hats” presented by Brittany D. Parker

Do you have a script begging to be brought to life? If you’ve considered producing your own work, and aren’t sure where to start, this is the place. Learn from the vast experience of Brittany Parker, an award-winning actor, writer, producer, and director. She’ll share the ins and outs of producing your own work. Plus, Brittany will steer you clear of the unexpected pitfalls that sometimes come with producing your own project. Many projects come to fruition because of one driving force. That may be you.

2:45pm – 4:00pm: “Getting Booked and Staying Booked” presented by Aiyana Ruggiero

Whether you’re ready to go on your 1st audition, or your 50th, talent agent and manager Aiyana Ruggiero, founder of Ruggiero Models and Talent, will discuss the tools and attitude you need to shine.  She’ll also share on-set “Best Practices” to keep in mind once you’ve been booked. Plus, you’ll learn the professional points that will make it more likely for you to get re-booked for future work.


Auditions will take place in the West End Community Room. Once slots are filled, attendees will have the option to submit a self-taped audition.

Prepare and perform a short audition piece for our on-site filmmakers. Your audition will be filmed and available to our registered filmmakers as they are looking for talent for upcoming projects.
