“MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau serves as a vehicle for aspiring artists who may not have access to these types of insiders and opportunities,” said Deana Nassar, MPAC’s Hollywood Liaison. “We are excited to see Muslim Americans enter into the field, and we are here to help their endeavors. In this past year after the success of our screenwriter’s workshop, MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau is proud of the opportunities we can bring from the relationships we have nurtured.”

 

The intensive workshop will include two sessions. The first session will be taught by veteran acting coach Scott Sedita, who has had more than 25 years of experience in the entertainment industry. Sedita began his career in New York as a talent agent, where he helped launch the careers of many of today’s top stars, including Courteney Cox (“Friends”), Matt LeBlanc (“Friends”), Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU”), and Vincent D’Onofrio (“Law & Order: CI.” Sedita will be speaking about the business of acting, the reality of the industry and how to successfully navigate your way through the Hollywood waters.

The second session will be led by actress and acting coach Judy Kain, who has been acting professionally for 35 years in television and films and has appeared in more than 250 commercials. Kain will be teaching a casting director workshop that showcases actors in performance ready scenes – a format that more closely resemble the audition process. The format is the most efficient way to help experienced professional actors further their career. Get ready to show off your talents on stage.
