Meet Alumni

UNDER CONSTRUCTION—CHECK BACK SOON AS WE FIND AND ADD MORE ALUMNI!
Meet Studio Alumni. Matchmaking is the secret to great casting. When I was casting for years, my greatest actor leads came from personal recs and lots of searching. To this day, many Casting Directors and Creatives love to reach out to acting studios and working colleagues for ideas. May your search expand and lead you to the talent you seek. This database will be constantly expanding as we track down my thousands of alumni. Connect away! —Heidi
