Do you want to go into the entertainment industry? Are you looking for the right information to get started?
Wouldn't it be great to learn more about how to prepare for an interview, on-stage competition or simply how to develop your own sense of style? You can! Learn from the experts!
We're presenting this information in a one-day workshop, jam-packed with tips, facts and advice!
The day will consist of four different break-out sessions for participants. Sessions will include:
Working with the Camera: Participants will study improvisation as a tool to integrate the different styles and skills for acting in front of the camera for media, television, film, and reporting.
Preparing for the Entertainment Industry: From the importance of first impressions and presentation to the truth about finding an agent and auditioning, participants will learn how to navigate a path through the confusing world of the entertainment industry.
Establishing your Ideal Presentation: Participants will learn how to select and apply the right modeling, make-up, talent, etiquette techniques and overall style to best highlight their personal strengths. Whether on or off the stage, these presentation skills will last a lifetime.
Navigate the Interview Room from all sides of the Table: This session will teach participants everything they need to know to take the mystery out of the interview process. Overall interview technique, paperwork completion, platform development and the Children's Miracle Network will all be discussed. Participants will also see an actual judges' ballot in order to learn the process from all sides of the interview table!

At the farewell luncheon sponsored by La Casa Hermosa for Caitlin Brunell, Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2008, Ami Manning presented over 50 dresses on behalf of Paris, Nicky and Kathy Hilton to Brunell for Caitlin's Closet. Brunell started Caitlin's Closet to be able to provide girls with dresses for special occasions that could not otherwise afford them thus raising their self esteem.
The dresses were divided and many of the remaining dresses will be auctioned off by Robin Fleming and La Casa Hermosa to raise money for Caitlin's Closet and MAOT. Funds raised for Caitlin's Closet will go to purchase specific sizes that are in popular demand. New auctions begin every week!
