What makes the Rainsworth Difference?

Rainsworth Productions isn’t just a school; it’s a film and theater company. We are part of the industry, working with other established theater and film makers and cultivating relationships with some of the finest professionals in entertainment — casting directors, producers, and executives.

We also offer classes to aspiring actors. It makes sense to us to connect the talented performers we instruct with the industry veterans we work with.

How do we do this? First, through Audition Technique Masterclasses. We seek out the top casting directors and field experts in New York to provide guidance in auditioning. Too many promising actors miss out on opportunities because they know how to act, but do not know how to stand out in an audition. Our casting directors teach performers what an audition is like from the other side of the table, giving them insider knowledge about how to succeed and to think like a casting director.

Our other way of cultivating relationships is through Meet & Greets. Unlike our classes, Meet & Greets are not formal or structured. They are social gatherings, including free movie nights, and cocktail nights that we organize with industry veterans, to provide an opportunity to meet and chat with the sorts of people they will be working with for the rest of their careers. This is a great way to build up contacts, not only with well-known professionals, but also with the other film and theater makers who attend. As well as having a casting and crew-hiring agency for our own extensive portfolio of in-house projects, Rainsworth is an incredible resource for networking with all of the people who use our services.

Acting is a career. And, like any other career, relationships are a key factor. Let us help you connect.
