Auditions To Offers Digital
Go From Chasing Auditions...To Getting Straight Up Offers!
Let’s be real. You don’t care about auditions.
Picture this scenario. I’m a high quality film producer, ready to go into production on my next feature film. You are a fan of my work, and one of your goals is to work with me. I’ve already secured financing for my film, and there happens to be a leading role that you were born to play. I reach out to offer you the part.
What do you do?
Insist that I let you audition first?
Of course not!
The truth is, if you never had to audition again, you wouldn’t miss the process.
It’s not “more auditions” that you want. It’s to book more work! Yet, so many actors spend their time, energy, and money chasing after the very thing they don’t want.
Because it feels like getting an audition is the only way to get your foot in the door.
That simply isn’t true. I’m going to show you how to go from chasing auditions, to getting straight up offers (without having to audition at all).
Introducing: Auditions To Offers
What is it?
This 4-part online video program will teach you how to stop focusing on auditions, and start focusing on the secret weapon to long-term career success…powerful relationships!
Think about it.
Successful actors follow a similar strategy: They work with the same people over and over. They work on projects within a certain “wheelhouse” (that’s fancy producer-speak for genre, medium, style). And they rarely, if ever, have to audition.
Because they are already known, liked and trusted by the people who can hire them.
Now, you may not be an A-lister (YET), but you can start using the same principles now. That means shifting your focus from auditions, to connecting with the people who can hire, write for, or collaborate with you.
This program will teach you how to identify, build and maintain those relationships that keep you working for the rest of your career.
BEYOND AGENTS, CASTING DIRECTORS AND AUDITIONS
Now don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying you shouldn’t audition. You should take those opportunities when they come and audition your heart out!
Auditions are part of the process of getting seen. But they are not the only way to be seen. And this is exactly why I was inspired to create the Auditions to Offers program. I want to help you go beyond the path of agents, casting directors and auditions, and start creating creative alliances with the people who can hire you (psst…agents and casting directors can’t hire you).
Yes, it’s helpful to have a good agent, and to be well known by casting directors. But that’s not all there is to it. Whether you currently have representation or not, it’s in your best interest to build your own relationships that help you go from auditions to offers.
I’m here to show you exactly how to do that.

About Emily Grace
I help actors get in the driver’s seat of their career with marketing plans that work. I am also an actor myself, so I get the actor’s mindset, struggles, fear, doubt and anxiety. And what I’ve learned in my years of experience in the entertainment industry is that talent is an amazing gift to have, but it isn’t the most important ingredient to acting success.
So what is the most important ingredient?
It’s marketing. It’s business savvy. It’s having a plan that gets results, and putting that plan into persistent action long enough for it to get results. I’ve got a unique perspective – I’m a Sundance award-winning actor, a writer, entrepreneur, and a producer. I’ve been on both sides of the table, and I know what works (and what doesn’t).
I teach actors how to think like a producer, so they can act for a living. Yes, you want to be creative, free, and fulfilled. But what good is your acting talent if no one knows about you? It’s time to get out of acting class and into the business where offers are made, deals go down, and you get paid to do what you love.
If you’ve got the talent, the training, the drive and the determination, but no one took the time to teach you the business and marketing, that’s where I come in!
WHY DO RELATIONSHIPS MATTER?
The entertainment industry is built on relationships. When there’s money on the line and reputations as stake, people want to work with one type of person…someone they can TRUST.
When you are the person who has that trust, it’s easy to get hired without an audition. It helps everyone save time, money, and with less stress.
RELATIONSHIPS LEAD TO WORK
I was inspired to create this program after listening to a panel that featured Alex Karpovsky. He plays Ray on HBO’s “Girls.” At the time, I had never heard of him.
When the moderator asked him if preparing an audition for HBO was different than preparing for other kinds of auditions.
His answer was,
“Actually, I didn’t have to audition. In fact, until recently, I had never auditioned for anything in my life.”
No audition necessary? For a recurring role on a hit cable network? For an unknown actor with zero television credits?
How did this happen?!?!?
I’ll tell you…
(I bet you can see where this is going…)
It happened because he had a strong relationship with the creator of “Girls,” Lena Dunham. They had met years before at a film festival, liked each others’ work, and became friends.
When “Girls” got picked up at HBO, Lena Dunham got final casting approval, and was able to directly hire people she trusted, no audition necessary.
This story reminded me that it’s all about relationships.
I created Auditions To Offers to help you focus on what really matters – relationships with people who can hire you for the kind of work you are most passionate about!
How It Works
The program is released in weekly online class modules. Each week’s class is filled with step-by-step training videos, done-for-you templates, resource lists, worksheets and bonus videos that will show you how to focus on the actions that get results.
This is not busy work. This is the art of relationship building.
You won’t just be learning what to do, but you’ll actually be taking action throughout the course. Because knowing what to do isn’t enough. You must take action (and keep going) to get results.

What others say about working with Emily...
“This course really clicked with me…I feel clarity and confidence in who I am and what I bring to the table. I feel like suddenly I have a lot more of my career in my own hands. Thanks so much, Emily. You do great work. :-)”Rebecca Weaver
“I have learnt that it takes time to trust and develop relationships and not to be in such a rush. I feel less afraid to ask for what I want, not worried if something doesn’t work out, and more picky about who I want to choose to work with. It’s a great way to get hold of your career, to think out of the box, to be reminded of how to connect with people and to relax! Thank you Emily! I really loved this class and am very grateful to you.”Jumaan Short
“I was totally guilty of the “spaghetti syndrome” – throwing everything to the wall and seeing was would stick. Now I have a specific, systematic approach. I definitely feel less overwhelmed. I’ve always struggled with perfectionism and wanting to do EVERYTHING. Marketing and networking are not words that fill me with dread anymore. I actually wake up feeling excited about my marketing thanks to Emily.”Rachel Errington
“I am taking a whole different look into marketing…this class is such an eye-opener, it’s something everyone should know. (I can’t say about many classes).” -Gerson GomezGerson Gomez
“I’m even more focused than before because I have even more clarity about what I want to do and with whom. I feel more confident in contacting people because I know what to say and how. This course is so empowering for actors. I think it can be used to help accomplish any goal an actor might have.”India Autry
“Emily is helping with that “spaghetti syndrome” I’ve had as well as given me powerful organizational tools to stay on track. I no longer feel like I have to conquer the world…like in the next 10 minutes, and I don’t feel overwhelmed. I know what I need to do next. I would definitely recommend Emily’s courses. It will help keep the career momentum going. When the ball gets dropped, whether be for a family emergency or other reasons, I feel like I fail. So continuing the learning curve as well as applying it to the things I’m working on is extremely helpful. The information contained in her courses also helps demystify building an internet presence for advertising as well as providing great examples of what works and what is not working.”Mary Riitano
