Stilwell Casting presents Sit Down w/Stilwell: Educational Limited Series


As an actor, you are your own CEO. You are the product, and the more educated you are in the business of acting, the more well-rounded you will become. Sit Down with Stilwell is not a workshop. There is nothing to prepare, and it is strictly for educational purposes.


Our goal with this series is to educate, elevate, and support Atlanta/Southeastern-based actors to make our market stronger and multifaceted.


Each week will feature a different IN PERSON panel of special guest speakers who will share their point of view about the business of our industry, and how that relates to you as the actor.


For this series, we are going back to the basics: AUDITIONING 101, BRANDING 101, & AUDITIONING FOR MINORS 101. We are intentionally keeping the capacity of each night limited to create an intimate discussion-based atmosphere, along with keeping health and safety in mind.


All Sit Down Events will be held at Studio at Stilwell. The address is 565 Dutch Valley Road NE., Atlanta, GA 30324.


Week 1 - Tuesday, May 3, 2022
