    It is a scam. They make you pay for your classes. They butter you up with what you get and how great it is, then say something like “Since you need headshots we have a very special photographer comming in who can do it for a low price of 1000″ (It happens.) Google it. Type in “John Casablancas scam”

    If you already paid, and they won’t let you have your money back, then just go ahead and take the classes, cuz you paid, but be aware that people who ask for money upfront are a scam.

    My agent didn’t ask me for a penny to represent me. Just 10 % of anything she sent me out on and I booked

    .It’s an acting school ….true

    How they go about getting students falls under scam.

    They use tactics:

    Running around the mall telling everyone you have that look. Anyone looking at the table will be accepted as long as they pay the pricey tuition.

    “Hi, I am a talent agent and I am putting together some casting sessions for movie so and so. I think you have a great look. Here’s my card call me tomorrow”

    You call …. ” Great, you know I do remember you…( NOT) I think you’d be perfect you this role I am casting but I need you to come in and audition. ( Your so excited your audition for a major holywood role)

    So you and your parents head the guys office. You want to be safe but there are those that are above 18 heading there with friends.

    SO you show up with your parents and you audition. Your nervous but that s ok. You read for the part….which is horrible might even be a little ok. The guy ” you know you read great but I could tell your nervous and inexperienced and may not be right for this part but I think you have a STAR quality. With the right classes I think you can be great. ” I just happen to help recruit only the people I think have raw talent and I refer to JRP. It’s only few classes “and then the hard pitch starts

    You are over 18 and you take your friend which of course he takes one look at and determines your friends also has that special quality and invite them to read for a part as well. You both are terrible but he tells you the same thing as sample one. Then the hard pitch starts.

    Here’s a fact…. 7% of all people who ever start out in acting ….stay in acting. Out of that 7% 1 % makes any money. Only 2 % ever really stay focus long enough to continuely audition and the rest are happy audition once a year

    It is very expensive. Yes and no to the scam. They suck you in with promises. Depending on the training of the teacher you get, it may not be worth the money. I would not do it. I taught for JRP’s for years until I understood their business ethics. Then my students would ask me for help etc.

    They tell everyone they will represent them at big national auditions.

    Contact your local film commission. They usually can give you a list of reputable teachers. You would be better reading and learning on camera techniques and take weekend workshops from a teacher with qualifications.

    Classes and scene study are usually once a week for a lifetime. Studying your craft never stops. Cost can be $20-$100, depending on the teacher and area. Some stars teach in California and NY.
    PAG ACT a group by a Ken Farmer, has a book Acting is storytelling.
    It is one of the best for learning film techniques, how to develop characters, back stories etc.
