Celebrity Experience

The Hollywood Interactive Event

The Celebrity Experience is an exclusive interactive event that occurs over five days in the Capital of the entertainment Industry located in the heart of Hollywood. During this incredible experience we provide tools for success and opportunities for young performers to work in-person with celebrities and experience what it means to work in the entertainment industry first hand. The Celebrity Experience unites performers with Hollywood heavy hitters including casting directors, talent managers and international TV and Film stars.

Every performer is able to see from an inside perspective what it means to work in the entertainment industry. Young performers gain valuable real-life experience by performing with celebrities, shooting scenes in a movie studio with a full crew and directed by a hollywood director while creating a reel of their work which is a rare and unique opportunity for aspiring performers. The ability to present a body of work in their reel, done in cooperation with real celebrities, provides a (unique) advantage to stand out from the crowd and compete with others already working in the entertainment industry.

Actors are taught to think like a busness professional at a young age and perform in front of large audiences and meet key decision makers in the industry to help the young performer blossom.

About Us

You love acting. You want to be on television. Maybe you want to be a movie star. But how do you get there? Where do you start? Who can help you?

The keys to turning an aspiring actor into a bankable star are these: talent, camera-friendliness, craft, luck, experience and connections. Guess which are the most important factors as you move from amateur to bankable? They're the very same keys we give you at Celebrity Experience--craft, luck, experience and connections.

LUCK

Luck doesn't just happen. You make your luck. You're in the right place (our events are one of the right places); you meet the right people (working with celebrities at our seminars); casting directors see your work (with us you'll get exposure by filming a body of work at a film studio); and people who can hire you will remember your face (especially if you've met them face-to-face).

CRAFT

To develop your craft, you'll work with our celebrities first-hand and you'll film your work. You'll get a chance for some personal TV and movie star Q&A. We bring you industry professional speakers who will help you understand areas where you can improve. Our speakers are well known and respected folks throughout the film business; you never know when one of our speakers might be hiring--and they will become some of your connections.

CONNECTIONS

Speaking of connections, how much more connected can you get! Movie stars answering your questions, industry big shots giving tips, getting to work with famous actors and other celebrities, working with a professional crew at a studio, filming your talent. Making the right connections will be the most important thing you do for your career and for your future.

EXPERIENCE

We help you develop experience through hands-on work and performing with celebrities who we bring in exclusively for our student attendees…Every performer is able to see from an inside perspective what it means to work in the entertainment industry. You'll actually get yourself on film, in a movie studio, directed by a Hollywood director and with professional crew shooting you while creating a reel of your work, which is a rare and unique opportunity for aspiring performers.
