Mentor Mania 2017
Sunday, November 19th
1:45pm - 4pm
$40 for members, $50 for non-members
Tickets go on Sale November 1st
Mentor Mania 2017 One of our most popular, sell-out events! Mentor Mania is like speed dating for actors! In private, approx. 5 minute meetings, you will have one-on-one time with major New Mexico casting directors AND talent agents.
This is an unprecedented opportunity, no matter where you are in your career. Last year, because of Mentor Mania, a number of attendees got signed by agents.
Doors will open at 1:30pm, with explanations and introductions at 1:45pm. Meetings begin promptly at 2pm and conclude at 4pm.. Location details to follow.
NEW this year: We have instituted a modest fee so that this event can help NMWIF toward its financial goals. The fee for members is $40 and $50 for non-members, if any space remains. ANY NM acting workshop costs easily twice as much and cannot offer the exposure and access to the film/tv decision-makers that Mentor Mania does.
Registration for members will open on November 1st. If any spots still remain, we will open it to non-members on November 12th. Registration will close on Friday, November 17th.
SCHEDULED to be MENTORS this year, as of now: (Subject to change)
- JoEdna Boldin, casting director
- Faith Hibbs-Clark, casting director
- Kathryn Brink, casting director
- Carissa Mitchell of Mitchell and Associates
- Lynette O’Connor of the O Agency
- Tina Presley of Presley Talent
Once again, we will be hosted by past president Linda McDill and Stu Goswick.
