Jason Teresi, Director of Regional Services at Breakdown Services, Ltd.
Talent agencies, casting directors, and Breakdown Services are essential to getting booked for a role, and all actors (as well as others in the industry) need to know how these parts of the machinery work. To give us insights into these matters, we are proud to announce that our guest speaker on October 14th will be Jason Teresi, a man in our industry who knows these aspects well.
Jason was born and raised in Chicago. He attended DePaul Theatre School and Columbia College Theatre School. After graduating in 1995 Jason moved to Los Angeles. Wanting to work somewhere in the industry and avoid waiting tables he started working at Showfax, which was soon bought-out by Breakdown Services. He was employed by both companies for over 8 years which gave him a unique look at other aspects of the entertainment industry and a better working knowledge of how talent agents & casting directors operate. In 2006, Jason moved back to Chicago and became the Director of Regional Services for Breakdown Services, his current role.
So join us on Wednesday, October 14, arrive early for a “Happy Hour” cold margarita before 6, network and meet new folks with like minds, enjoy a fun-filled evening with other guests, and get insights about talent agencies, casting directors, and Breakdown Services from Jason Teresi. RSVP on Facebook or just show up!
We extend our deepest thanks to writer/director Cody Duckworth and producer Jonathan de la Luz for being our guest speakers on Wednesday, September 9, 2015! These men discussed many aspects of the making of their recently finished feature film “Harbinger”, and presented the trailer, which impressed everyone. Harbinger was filmed entirely in Texas with a Hispanic cast. The movie is in English and Spanish with subtitles, and is currently being submitted to world class film festivals around the world. Thank you for an excellent and informative presentation, Cody & Jonathan, and we hope to see the entire film soon… and see you and the team at the Oscars!
We also wish to thank Alyne Harding, Director of the Austin 48 Hour Film Project, who gave us a few moments about the rousing success of this year’s event and exciting news about next year’s. Our city boasts one of a handful of 48-Hour Film Projects with enough entries to make it to the next tier coming up in October! Want to make a horror film?
