Here are some testimonials about the ACF:
- Just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend
your Actors' Career Fair June 21. Everyone was so nice and helpful.
The Casting Directors made me feel very relaxed and comfortable.
- Just a quick note to say that Tuesday evening's events were
outstanding. The seminars, the drop offs and especially the quality
of the audition professionals.
- I audition your seminar yesterday and it was great. I got a
call from Selective Casting and from my audition I am now going
to meet the director for a short film this Friday. You guys were
all so friendly and helpful that I can't wait to join the next
one. I had a blast. BTW your staff is the BEST.
- GUESS WHAT!!! David Elliot's assistant just called me. I have
an appoinment on Tuesday with him!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks BIGBREAKNY!!!
I just wanted to let you know that bigbreak is working.
- Thank you so much for your Actors' Career Fairs! I recently
had an audition for Scott Metzger of Paradigm at your Career Fair
and last week I had a follow-up meeting with him at his office!
all thanks to you! Keep up the good work and thanks for helping
me move onward and upward with my career.
- I participated, for the first time, in ACF 11. I would like
to thank you guys for providing the services that you do. It's
nice to have some assistance in pursuing this career. While it
provides no guarantees, I particularly like the fact that I can
drop off pictures to designated agents as opposed to the crap
shoot of mailing them.
- BIGBreakNY is one of the only acting/entertainment resources
out there that actually does what it promises. You all are great!
- Thank you for giving New York Actors your site. I use it every
single day. And recently I auditioned for a feature film posted
on your site and I found out on Friday 9/15/05 that I was cast.
Love your site and keep up all the hard work you have been doing.
It is appreciated. Thank you.
Peace and Light,
