“The most amazing experience of my life! So many great things are about to happen. Joanna Sanchez has a heart of gold and the people she attracts are just as amazing. I’m so grateful to have been apart of this experience and I’m still on Cloud Nine. This has really been a blessing.”

Kendra D. Parker, Actress

“Screenwriters, never allow anyone to diminish your role in the creation of a film; no script, no film. Always remember, you are the beginning of the end, the end being what the public sees on the screen.”

Norman Ray Fitts, Screenwriter

“When I signed up for the United States Marines Corps, we were expected to be prepared to show up anywhere in the world, anytime, for however long the assignment took. If you are dedicated to your career, that kind of commitment will be required to fight for your dream.”

Andy Valadez, Producer

“I have had the opportunity to network and work with some of the GREATEST people in the entertainment industry. Even before this event, Joanna has become someone that I knew I could trust with the art forms that I hold dear and even with a lot of my secrets (I find that your acting coach tends to learn a lot about your life LOL). But because of this, I knew that anyone that Joanna had in her corner has to be as genuine as she is and of course I was proven right. The entire cast and crew were welcoming and open to give and I am honored and forever grateful to have been a part of this journey!!! To everyone involved as no one’s contribution was gone unnoticed…thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!!!!”

Jameshia Bankston, Singer/Actor

“I have been a student of Joanna Sanchez for several years and have grown as an actor because of her. She went above and beyond with the Texas Enrichment Training Tour for Actors. Andy Valadez and his family were excellent hosts. The production team and speakers were top-notch. They also gathered a talented set of actors for the acting portion of the event. It was a beneficial experience that will stay with me.”

Benjamin Wadsworth, Actor

“Wow, what a great opportunity to participate in the 4 day Joanna Sanchez Workshop.  A fabulous way to jump back into the acting world and to reconnect with the wonderful actress and drama coach Joanna Sanchez.  The workshop offered so much – coaching, rehearsals, headshots, filming, and an opportunity to meet and learn from others in the entertainment business.  Thank you to Andy Valadez and his family who hosted us and to the wonderful actors and crew we were blessed to work with.”

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 and also advance her students to the next level faster.
