Brogan attended Talent Inc. with Acting Out Studio when he was just 5 years old and won Overall Child Actor.  We had no experience in the entertainment business and had no idea what to expect. We were thrilled to see the guidance & education, the positive energy & encouragement through the entire program. The journey to prepare for Talent, Inc. included hands on training for stage presence, acting for the camera, character development, script analysis and so much more.  At the event itself, we had the opportunity to attend parent education sessions to learn more about the business and can remember the anticipation of watching the kids perform monologues, commercials and showcase their talents as if was yesterday. Brogan had the time of his life but little did we know what lied ahead. Because of Talent, Inc., he has representation in North Carolina, Georgia & California and has starred in seven movies (two set to release in 2019), two TV shows and a dozen commercials. He has worked on films with Michael C Hall, Don Johnson, the late Sam Shepard, Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, John Hamm, John McGinley and Garret Dillahunt. He has sung our National Anthem at most every amateur and pro sporting event in Charlotte including the Panthers!  He has appeared on Fox News several times. Brogan takes voice, acting and dance lessons to stay focused on his craft and absolutely LOVES the opportunities he’s been afforded following his experience at Talent Inc.!! Thank you Talent Inc. for preparing us so well and for opening the door!

In August 2015 Max and Griffin participated in Talent Inc.  We enrolled the boys in the Talent Inc. program though Kamber Hejlik’s Acting Out Studio in Charlotte, NC. Griffin, who won Overall Child Actor at Talent Inc., was signed by Osbrink Agency in Los Angeles and is now also represented by Carson Adler in NYC and managed by RSA Talent in LA. Talent Inc. literally changed Griffin’s life. The experience gave him the confidence to pursue his dreams.  In addition to several roles in the southeast, Griffin has worked with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and an amazing ensemble comedic cast in the upcoming Netflix movie The Week Of and recently just got to work with Ralph Macchio as his on-screen son in eight episodes of Cobra Kai with talks of expanding his role in upcoming seasons. Griffin is growing as an actor and continues to get positive feedback from casting and producers. In fact, Griffin has three auditions tomorrow.  As a parent, I am incredible grateful for his preparation by Kamber and his experience at Talent Inc.

Acting Out Studio helped make my daughter’s dream become a reality. Not only does she receive exceptional training from incredible talented teachers, she is provided opportunities to shoot for the stars and go for her dream. A little skeptical going in, Abby attended Talent Inc…it was the best decision we have ever made for her. She signed with 2 agents and a manger. She was on her way to living her dream. Thank you AOS and Talent Inc. for making Abby’s dreams come true. I highly recommend AOS & Talent Inc. to anyone looking for the best acting/modeling/voice training in NC and Talent Inc. for those who are ready to take it to the next level!

While Carrington had recently signed with a local agency and was already doing a fair amount of print work, we made the decision that we wanted to explore the acting side of things. We went to our first Talent Inc. in March 2018 and met with numerous agents from NY and LA. She is now signed with The Savage Agency in LA and deciding between several NY agents. Talent Inc. was a great experience for us as we were looking to get our foot in the door and network with others in the industry. Mission accomplished. We are headed out to LA & NY for the summer, wish us luck!

Matthew went out to LA to meet with agents and managers. He had 9 meetings and all 9 offered him representation on the spot.

If not for Acting Out Studio, my experience at Talent Inc. would not have been as successful or enjoyable! They are so helpful in preparation, expectation, and ability to put on a show. I am so excited to attend Acting Out class because I am fully able to be myself as well as pursue my passion. The staff is so friendly and supportive. They help you learn and improve your weaknesses all while validating your strengths. Acting Out is like a second home to me, and I wouldn’t think of the staff as anyone but family! I am extremely thankful for Kamber and the rest of the staff for helping me win Overall Female Actor at Talent Inc. as well as pursue my love for acting!
