There are no small roles—even the smallest part could be memorable in any show or film. It's about knowing the tricks of how to stand out when given very little material, without compromising your performance.  

Casting Director & Producer, SJ Allocco-St Germain is back to teach a new workshop on How to Book the Co-Star Role. Actors will be given sides prior to the workshop of short scenes      


SJ Allocco-St. Germain has worked in casting since 2012, starting as an assistant on the Netflix hit, Orange is the New Black. Recently, she was the Casting Director for SNAP (AllBlk/AMC+), I Run Hot (Peacock), and the Emmy-nominated, Immoral Compass (Roku). She recently formed a production company, Tiny Office Productions (TOPS), with her partner Arielle-Haller Silverstone. Their first feature, Love…Reconsidered, was shot entirely in the Hamptons, and is expected to release in late 2022.
