Just a quick thanks for all you and Rick are doing! The pitch experience was very enlightening as to the material and the contacts in my life, and hearing other students with their aspirations! And the other work is always insightful & helpful! – Dana Jones.
Hello, gentlemen. I just wanted to let you know that per your encouragement, I returned to the groundlings for their Level 3 Writing Lab. Our showcase was yesterday. It went FABULOUSLY, and I just found out that I am one of two people from the class who got in to the Advanced Level (final stage before Sunday Company). SO, thank you for your insight and encouragement. – Keri Safran.
I just wanted to thank you for your genuine passion and energy and the wonderful feed back you gave me when you said to me “that performance could get you a series regular” (I told you I’d quote you). I really appreciated you telling me to “do whatever you want and have fun”… you gave me creative permission….and I love getting the chance to do that. With all sincerity, it was one of the best workshops I’ve ever had. – Ryan Christiansen.
I wanted to send you a link to my reel, but more importantly I wanted to say thank you for giving such an incredible experience. I took pages of notes and you gave the most practical advice I have ever heard in a class. I also have a deep appreciation for how affirming you are. Even while giving guidance and suggestions, you saw what was special and unique about each person and gave them something they could move forward with in a positive way. I have seen many actors get set back months and years in their progress because of comments in classes that were spirit-crushing rather than inspiring, and it is a great gift to walk out with something to work on while feeling good about working on it. So, thank you, and it was wonderful meeting you. – Catherine

Hi, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your workshop last night at Reel Pros. You gave us invaluable information and were very generous with your time and wisdom. It was a pleasure to meet you, officially. Sincerely – Darin Cooper
Hey Russell! I know what a busy man you are but I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for the time and expertise you lent to us at your workshop. Your novel approach to the business of the business and your emphasis on simplicity were thoroughly refreshing as well as the unique insight you gave to each actor. Your tips were definitely ‘million dollar’ caliber and I wish more casting directors had the ability to find your honesty without the brutality added in;) Sincerely – David Hays Gaddas.

  1. THE LIVING ACTOR, with instructors Rick Pagano and Russell Boast, was the best class I have taken in years. Rick is a dynamo, with 25 years in casting and a PHD in theatre, “he knows his stuff”, is an understatement. He sees the essence of actors, and knows what they need both in acting and in marketing to become financially successful in the business. Russell is a true inspiration. His love for the art and passion for his students is incredibly motivating. I see him as a great new innovator and leader in this industry. His ideas and creativity are undeniable, and his feedback is spot on. If I haven’t said enough, these two are fantastic teachers, mentors, and great people. I highly advise actors to become a part of their network, as your career and life will benefit.
