Paul Michaels The Network was created over 8 years ago and has become known as a well respected and nurturing space for Actors, Agents and Casting Directors, where they can gather together all on the same playing field.  Paul Michael created The Network out of a need he saw in the industry and so many actors are thankful that he did.  An Actor, Director, Casting Director and Assistant Agent himself, he knows every side and angle of the business and his goal is to share that knowledge with us all.  One of the things that makes The Network so unique is the FREE consultations Paul personally gives to every actor who walks through the doors.  He truly has an open door policy and is willing to give advice and coach you before, during and after you participate in any of the programs the studio has to offer.  His passion for giving back to the acting community exudes when you meet him and the industry is so lucky to have him.
