Class Experience

Zach Gray, who moved from Chicago to Los Angeles to open Gray Talent Group LA in 2016, provides insight to actors thinking about making the daunting move to the west coast. This class will offer an honest assessment of the struggles, landscape and work it takes to transition into the Los Angeles market. It will cover everything from common traps to avoid, to marketing yourself in a way that's appropriate for the market. This honest and informative session can help you discern if/when the move to Los Angeles is right for you.

As a TV/Film agent, Zach has placed clients in feature films (from blockbusters to Sundance hits) and many major Network, Cable and Streaming shows such as This is Us, Veep, Better Call Saul, Grey's Anatomy, Fear the Walking Dead, Law & Order: SVU and Modern Family. He has fostered relationships with casting directors, producers and directors in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York and has also managed the business affairs for the agency. Zach is a proud Chicagoan, Cubs fan and graduate of Northwestern University
