January 15 through January 18 – Joanna Sanchez from Hollywood to Texas
Enrichment Training Tour for Actors – Professional Acting by Joanna Sanchez
4-day production and training blitz with Joanna Sanchez. Supported by C47Houston News and Entertainment Magazine, Screenwriter Norman Ray Fitts, Ken P. Marsh of Fearless Networkers, Inc., Director Steffi Grace, Scott Frank Photography, Award Winning Music Producer Billy Dorsey, and Andy Valadez of Marketing Dynamics
Joanna Sanchez is a gifted actress, actor trainer, and seasoned producer and ally to all who are committed to the entertainment industry from Hollywood to New York. Her Hollywood location enables her to be in the know about the mood and movement in “Tinsel Town”, while alerting her students and network to what is happening next in television and film. In that spirit, we are proposing for an encompassing promotional and development program to widen the lens of the local talent and immerse them in a structured path. Joanna’s goal is to bring extreme benefit to her actors’ interests and enable her to have the tools she needs to share her students with her casting directors, producers, and director network in real time.
Joanna Sanchez has put together an incredible program for actors of all ages and experience levels, with a planned agent and production house tour, industry reception, individual and group training sessions, a production shoot and review, and professional speakers and presenters.
