    It's simple! After many years of either casting or agenting actors, ASA has developed a system that will work to eliminate frustration and financial strain involved in pursuing a professional acting career. All guidance will come first hand from us or our resources, not an internet search or social media group. Retaining our services will take the guesswork out of becoming a working actor, at a fraction of the cost and time spent trying to navigate on your own.
  • Why is ASA different?
    While teaching the business of acting is not a new concept, the thoughtful and organized system ASA has developed for clients is. ASA's founder has cast and repped actors for 10+ years. All of the guidance and resources ASA client's have access to is coming from the mind(s) of those that have been BOOKING actors for years.
