AGENCY TESTIMONIALS

TALENT TESTIMONIALS

Karen

I have to say this has been an amazing day, it’s been, first of all, jam packed with information. I feel like I got an entire education about Commercial Print work out of this. It was fun, it was light, it was easy. The casting agents were wonderful and accessible, and it was just really extraordinary.

Christine

I have just come from Cristina’s workshop. I want to let you know that it was totally fabulous, and I had a great time. The agents were absolutely wonderful. The people were great. Cristina of course is always awesome. And if your skeptical…I was at first – let me tell you, it is totally legit!

Sherry

I can’t tell you how informational this was for me today. There were so many things I needed to know. I have been in the industry for about three years, and I learned most of it today!

Destiny

It was absolutely amazing. Cristina is so helpful, so wonderful – and don’t be afraid to reach out to her, because I definitely did every chance that I could. She did everything she could for me, just to make sure it was going to be successful for me.

Janet

It’s so fun, and so informative, and it just reminded me of the opportunities that are out there. I would send my daughter to be trained by her – I would send all my relatives, all my friends. Anybody that asks me for advice about modeling, I say “go see Cristina!” She’s genuine, she’s 100% genuine, and she just gives you all of the honest truth, and she’s a doll!

Katlyn

I ended up coming to the Showcase to learn more about the industry and get a feel for the city, and even though I am not from New York, it was still a great opportunity to learn from the agents and to see what they’re looking for, and how to go about me career.

Zargoona

I’ve gotta been honest with you, I have met alot of people, and with her…actually meeting with her and talking with her on the phone prior to actually booking the workshop was the reason I actually booked the workshop. She actually has a personality behind her, and it is honest. After coming to the workshop, it really made me see how real she is, and how much she really does want you to succeed.

Vivyan
