Workshop & Consultation Reviews
“What's special about Annie is that she is really a working actress, sharing years of professional knowledge, expertise and artistry that have kept her a prominent force in our business.”~ Getchie Argetsinger, NYC Actress
“Annie is the real deal. The best in the biz on the biz. I constantly send my students to her.”~ Matt Corozine, Matt Corozine Studio
“As a director, where do you find a profession who sees the essence and marketable aspects of your work and puts together a presentation that reflects that? Annie Chadwick has the creative expertise to do just that and does it brilliantly. We in the performing arts are lucky to have someone who genuinely loves the industry, cares enough to guide and encourage us and comes up with a practical plan, to follow.~ June Prager, NYC Director
I am a total fan of you, your private coaching, and your workshop. I came to Annie's workshop hoping to at least get some decent info for $50. What I came away with was not only worth the price, but much more than I had hoped for. Annie is genuine, goes out of her way to not only make you feel special, but to really give you that extra individualized attention which is completely unexpected, but absolutely appreciated. Her workshop was not only chalked full of relevant and useful information, but she added something that I did not expect to find there...hope and inspiration. What a truly fabulous workshop! I highly recommend it to anyone who is beginning their career or feeling like they are at a stalemate here in New York!"
~ Krista Giffin, NYC actress/singer/musician
Annie was incredibly helpful in helping me get my feet on the ground when I first arrived in New York. The business side of things can be a lot to handle--but Annie is a performer in her own right so she speaks from a place of knowledge and understanding. It felt like I was suddenly on a team. She helped me to clarify and target my goals and gave me the practical tools needed to establish and (hopefully) sustain a lifelong career. I should also mention she's got a great positive energy--always available and eager to help. It was a pleasure to work with her. ~ Jonathan Bock, NYC Actor
I just wanted to thank you for taking your time in sharing your views and experiences in what was an informing and inspiring workshop that really got into the depths of my aspirations, motivations and needs. In all honesty, it was such a pleasure to meet you and witness your caring and genuine nature. As you know from our brief exchange, I feel I am at a pivotal point in my career I can't tell you how much of a blessing it was to hear words of positivity and reassurance at such a time. Your non-condescending angle, warm aura and uplifting attitude really set a spark in the positive possibilities that I too believe in. Koh, NYC & Japanese actor
I took your career building workshop yesterday. I wanted to drop you a line to say how thankful I was for your advice, attention, and for all the wonderful information you gave us. It was so awesome! I was so energized and excited after the meeting that I felt hopeful I could indeed pursue this career on a professional level. I feel like I have a clear-cut focus for how to approach the next six months and I feel awash in relief! Where to put your time, money and energy in your acting career feels so overwhelming, so it was nice to get some solid, practical advice. Thank you again. ~ Jennifer Moses, NYC actress
I’m so glad that I was able to make the seminar. It was jam packed with vital information. You were well-organized, professional, experienced, joyful and very sincere about giving everyone as much info as possible for a 2 hour seminar. I will call you for a private consultation. ~ Sharman Howe, NYC singer/actress
My session with Annie was so detailed. She takes the time to really get a sense of who you are and where you are in your career. Annie gave me so much information that I couldn't have possibly found out on my own. A consultation with her is a must for everyone especially beginners. I really wish I had gone to her before I started. Tacheima Bien-Aime, NYC actress
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your wonderful workshop on July 13th at the Drama Book Shop. I found your workshop to be very informative, helpful, and organized. I feel as though I walked away with a better sense of how to tackle the area of self-promotion, possibly consider new headshots, and how to, in general, "think out of the box" a bit more. . . I also walked away with an improved "can-do" attitude, which is challenging to maintain sometimes in this business.
I also really appreciated your down-to-earth manner and the level of attention you provided to those who asked questions during the workshop and to those who waited to ask questions after the workshop ended. Lastly, I think the best part was that we actually walked away with materials in hand! I know these will be helpful materials to add to my list of resources!
Again, thanks so much for your time, advice, and feedback - - it is much appreciated! Rondel Lashley, NYC actress
I took Annie's Sunday afternoon workshop at Drama Books a few months ago while visiting New York during a run at the New York International Fringe Festival, and still think it might very well have been the best $50 I've EVER spent on myself, not just as an actor, or an out-of-town actor, but also as someone who was happily reminded of what a noble profession we are a part of. Yes, noble! Because Annie's generosity not only extends to the almost overwhelming amount of materials she gives you (i.e. different examples of resume formats, lists of photographers in multiple price ranges, trade papers and gobs and gobs of resources) but also to her obvious love of the craft of acting. It was, frankly, a somewhat exhausting experience, but that's only because she is giving you a tremendous amount of information in a comparatively small amount of time, and she does it so WELL! And do be sure to get there early for the one-on-one with Annie, because that is when she takes the time to look at your headshot and resume and offer her invaluable suggestions. And even if she is telling you that your headshot is not suited to you, she makes a case that is hard to refute. A very, VERY smart and astute woman ~. Lorraine Olsen, San Francisco Actress
