One of the biggest struggles of the business is how to move from your training to starting your career. The early auditions and projects can be hard to navigate, and even harder to predict. This is an area where we have had a strong track record, and you can see that by looking at the success of our alumni on the website. After the training is finished, our students level up. They nail the audition that books the agent. They make the first film, or land the first guest spot. They book the first commercial. That means we have a lot of "firsts". They are getting jobs and becoming part of the working talent pool in Chicago or elsewhere in the country. Most recently, our alumni have been taking over guest and recurring spots on the following shows - Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Hope, APB. You can watch the one with Deanna Reed-Foster here. On the show, she also has worked with Joe Minoso, a regular on the series, and Aj McGhee, both students of Rick and Kathryn’s. We know how to get you where you want to be, and we do it pretty quickly. We get you in the ring and then we keep you there.
