4-Week Zoom Acting Lab with Top L.A. Talent Manager, Mitchell Gossett

Payment Plans Available – please call our office at 212.315.3010 or email us to set up a payment plan today!

Work with powerhouse L.A. Talent Manager Mitchell Gossett of Industry Entertainment Partners in an online acting lab! Mitchell's storied success has allowed him to refer talent to agencies in NY, L.A. and across the USA.

Throughout his career as a manager and agent, Mitchell has repped, discovered and developed many noteworthy actors, including Jennifer Lawrence (THE HUNGER GAMES, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK), Rachel Brosnahan (THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL), Darren Criss (AMERICAN CRIME STORY, GLEE), Zendaya (THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, EUPHORIA), Kristen Bell (FROZEN 1 & 2, THE GOOD PLACE), Dylan Minnette (13 REASONS WHY), Kiernan Shipka (THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SERENA, MAD MEN), Jojo Siwa (DANCE MOMS), Miley Cyrus (THE LAST SONG, HANNAH MONTANA), Lucy Hale (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) and many, many others.

Each week, participants will explore a set of values that, when present in an actor of any age, can help create a structure for great acting to occur. The nature of every actor's work springs from their unique instinct and memory. The work done in the Zoom Lab will playfully explore getting beyond "good" acting. We will discover how an actor’s instincts can emerge and be exercised in their work, and how this can inspire what makes up “great” acting.
