Adult Workshops


NOTE: This is an in-person workshop.

Thinking of moving to Los Angeles? A smooth transition requires a lot of preparation. This workshop demystifies the differences between the L.A. market and Chicago.

Originally born and raised in Chicago, Zach Gray moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2016 to launch Gray Talent Group's Los Angeles branch. Over the last seven years, he has worked to bring Hollywood closer to home by bringing West Coast opportunities to Midwest actors and helping their move to Los Angeles when the time is right.

This in-person seminar will cover a checklist for Chicago actors to accomplish before moving to Los Angeles and what to expect after making the move.  LA can sometimes feel like a big and scary unknown. This seminar will also cover strategic planning and common traps to avoid making the LA voyage as successful as possible. 

Things You Must Know Before You Go

  • LA Agents
  • LA Managers
  • Building relationships in a larger market. 
  • Marketing for actors
  • How to move your career forward while you wait.
  • Best times to move to Los Angeles 

It's a must if you've ever wondered how the business works on the West Coast.

An LA manager will join Zach to discuss what having a manager means for your career and how to know when you’re ready.
