"The Hollywood Winners Circle Master Course For Actors is an incredibly valuable tool. As a veteran Casting Director and Acting Coach, I can't emphasize enough how important it is to not only present stellar auditions, but to convincingly look like a professional actor in "the room" and on tape. I've conducted thousands of auditions in my own office, and in producer's sessions, as well as many network tests. You must look like a professional. In your appearance, your demeanor, and of course, in your performance. Wendy's guidance will show you the way to successfully present yourself. Training is your key to success.

"The Hollywood Winners Circle Academy is one of those resources I wish I had 10 years ago. I would have saved years in the wrong direction.

As a working actor who has appeared in TV some 40 times and booked network TV without an agent, I am assuring you that you can save the 5 years I wasted trying to figure out the correct path to the gatekeepers that will let you in the door. You cannot book studio films or network tv without “knowing how”. It’s that simple. You need to know the path. It doesn’t and will not fall out of the sky. Check out Wendy’s Hollywood Winners Circle Academy and get on the fast track. TIME is your most precious asset." - James Ciccone.
