“MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau serves as a vehicle for aspiring artists who may not have access to these types of insiders and opportunities,” said DeanaNassar, MPAC’s Hollywood Liaison. “We are excited to see Muslim Americans enter into the field, and we are here to help them with their endeavors. After the success of our screenwriter’s workshop, MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau is proud to present a workshop that builds off of the relationships we have nurtured.”
The intensive workshop will include two sessions. The first session will be taught by veteran acting coach Scott Sedita, who has had more than 25years of experience in the entertainment industry. Sedita began his career in New York as a talent agent, where he helped launch the careers of many oftoday’s top stars, including Courteney Cox (“Friends”), Matt LeBlanc (“Friends”), Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU”), and VincentD’Onofrio (“Law & Order: CI.” Sedita will be speaking about the business of acting, the reality of the industry and how to successfully navigate yourway through the Hollywood waters.
