Experience matters

"The overall experience of being a part of the apprenticeship program was most valuable. It gave me great insight into the industry as a whole.
In addition, being able to read a script for an upcoming television series from 1st draft to 4th draft, seeing the demo reels for the potential actors, meeting the director and seeing the pitch deck and mood board that were created for the series was a valuable experience. I am excited to see it come to life on TV! - Valerie Augustine, 2021 Meridian Artists Apprentice"
