“I attended Janine Cerny’s intensive, “The Agent Hour” October 10th and I’m so glad I did. It was incredibly eye-opening and informational. I came in with a lot of questions to begin with and found myself with even more as she brought up all sorts of things that I hadn’t even considered. The woman really knows her stuff! The seminar was three hours long without one minute wasted. Janine made sure she answered every last question that was asked and even stayed an hour afterwards to make herself available to the people who were literally waiting in line to ask ‘just one more question.’ Wow. What an awesome seminar to be offered at Actors Connection. Thanks for the suggestion!” -Danielle A.
