"Attending The Source was one of the best decisions I have made to help advance my acting career. Thank you Paul Michael...My life is forever changed for the better and I feel fully prepared to take my acting career to the Next Level!" - Gayle Carney, Source 25

 

"Paul Michael not only helps you prepare your business strategy, but he also helps you identify and overcome the obstacles that have prevented you from reaching your goals. Because of his guidance, preparation, and the Source final showcase, I now have representation of a top talent manager. Thank you Paul!" - Robin Reck, Source 25

 

"Since I took The Source, I subsequently continued with many other Network offerings to connect and learn from a variety of industry professionals. In building these relationships, I have been able to achieve my goals. -  I was brought in and cast in a leading role in an indie feature film, Mouse. I also reconnected with Margaret Emory of SW Artists in Scott Wojcik’s commercial workshop and have begun to work with her." - Caroline Ryburn

 

"This 10 wk. course covers everything from branding, marketing and most importantly, what’s going on, on the inside. Their techniques identify blocks in a way that I hadn’t experienced before.. I am grateful to Paul for his leadership, generosity, and heart. I highly recommend the Source to anyone with a curiosity and desire for transformation." - Kristina Latour

 

"Paul Michael (helps you) to learn the business of acting, and the twists of the film and theatre industries. The best way is to access it is via your own personal source. Every class was a new adventure to me, an exploration to find my keys to success as an actor." - Christina Farah

 

"The Source was a life-changing journey. A truly empowering class! I’ve taken classes all over NY and nothing really compares to it, no matter the stage you are in your career... Whether you are lost, or ready to take your career to the next level, this is the program to take! Paul creates a safe space were we discover the power of awareness and we really dig into the source within us." - Veronica Farias

 

"The Source transformed me from amateur worrier to an Artist with a plan well-equipped to take-on the Acting industry. Before you take another acting class, do yourself a favor and enroll in Paul Michael's "the Source" ; you will find the structure and guidance you need to "laser focus" your acting goals." - Michael Montiel

 

"I feel confident and prepared on how to take business meetings with agents and casting directors, and feel like I have the necessary tools for success! Can't thank Paul enough for [his] work and the relationships formed in this class." - Josh Domingo

 

"The Source,’ (is) a deep and broad 10-week rigorous course for actors willing to discover and confront both their strengths and their frailties. I was lucky to participate.. and have benefited in many ways. In the safety of the weekly meetings, we all supported each other’s stumbles, and celebrated our growth and successes. At the end, we all had enormously successful meetings with industry professionals... and all of us have been called in by at least one agent or manager. This is an extraordinary rate of success. I cannot recommend ’The Source’ more and urge any and everyone who wants to leap ahead in their career to avail themselves of it. It’s an invaluable resource." - Karin De la Penha

    -Susan Jane Mcdonald, Feb 2019

     

    “This week I completed a course that has set me on a new one.

    For anyone who feels stuck in life, your career or emotionally, I could not more highly recommend The Source with Paul Michael’s The Network. It is truly a life-changing experience. It will push all your buttons, send you to and though all your limits. The version of you that comes out the other side is the person, it turns out, you’ve always been; the person you’ve been too afraid to let out because, if you did, that would mean you are fearless, strong, successful and limitless and that can be scary. But this beautifully challenging process will show you: you ARE ready for this, you ARE strong enough, you DESERVE so much more than you are allowing yourself to experience. And in the meanwhile, you’ll gain incredible new friends and an inspiring support system. Give yourself this gift. Take this step. You will transform and never regret it.”

    — Tara Haight – June 2018

     

    “If you're in NYC. I just finished taking a wonderful 10 week course with Paul J. Michael on not just the business of acting and marketing, but personal growth! I highly recommend this class! I had to do it all through FaceTime and still got tremendous value from it!!!!”

    — Michael Patrick Lane from Dynasty – June 2018


    "Thank God for Paul Michael and The Network. I had the opportunity to show an agent who I am as an artist and talk to him as a human being, and now I have legit representation."

    -Amy Hayes, Network Actor, Source 34

    “Just incredible.”

    — Carla Johnston Young – June 2018

    "Doing The Source changed my life trajectory, I was new to the city and had not done much at all. I was walking around without a clear direction. Paul Michael changed all of that. Now as a thank you, I work for The Network a few hours a week, have a thriving Videography and Editing Business Utrata By Design, an agent, thanks to The Source showcase, and I am working regularly. Dreams do happen y'all, It just takes a leap of faith. Put that faith in Paul Michael and The Source!"

    -Jack Utrata, Network Actor, Source 10 Graduate


    "Being a Member of the D.C. Original Source transformed my life literally: my acting career, my perceptions of myself as an actor and as a person … all for the better. After completing the Source I felt empowered to own my gift as a storyteller, to find the joy in doing what I had always dreamed of doing, and to do it with full abandonment. I declared without evidence that I would move up to New York City to pursue my dream. Following through with my goals, less than a year later, I moved up to the city, secured an Agent and a Manager, both of whom I had met during my Source Showcase and began living each day waking up with joy and doing what I absolutely loved most! Paul Michael is like no other in this business industry. He has a long history of working in this business from all sides of the industry. His advice is invaluable, his coaching is spot on and his demeanor on how he advocates for all actors comes from a safe and loving place. Being a part of the Source 2017 in D.C. was the best decision I ever made not only for myself, but for my acting career as well."

    “I can’t recommend Paul J. Michael’s The Source highly enough. If you need some of that good old acting business acumen, a restart, a community of supportive artists, want to make stuff, want to be an empowered actor in the industry, want someone to have your back and challenge you in this wonderful city, please check it out! I went from being shy and playing small to being a confident leader, and that’s the tip of the iceberg. I am very excited about the coming professional results, but the personal benefits have so far been outstanding. Go go go!”

    — Autumn Mirassou, June 2018

    “This past week I completed the final week of Paul J. Michael’s The Source. I can easily say that it’s one of the most challenging, emotional, and eye-opening experiences I’ve ever been through. Paul Michael has created something truly special, uniquely powerful, and certainly invaluable in The Source. If you are stuck in your career, feeling overwhelmed or unsure of what to do next, this experience will open you up to an incredible abundance of information, support and community. I am so grateful to Paul Michael, Brenton, Veronica, and each of the beautiful, passionate and talented artists for the experience and insight I’ve gained in these past 10 weeks. If you are a creative person and you want to open the door to opportunity, you must take The Source. Trust the process.”

    — Jon Berry, June 2018

     

    “To those of you who are unaware of Paul Michael's The Source, may I suggest that you make yourselves aware of it and sign up as soon as you are able. Once a week from mid-March until last night, I and my nine fellow Sourcers have shared the most incredibly mind, eye and heart opening experiences I believe any of us have ever encountered. We have learned so much about ourselves and each other and how we live our lives and deal with our career choices and the way we simply look at life from now on. All I can say is -- do it.”

    — Pamela Osowski, June 2018

     

    “So I just finished The Source at Paul Michael's The Network and if you're feeling stuck in your life, unsatisfied in your career or just general malaise about your life choices than I cannot recommend this any higher. I was continuously challenged, frustrated and pissed off but I saw it through and the light at the end of the tunnel far outweighed the bullshit in my head. Trust me, if you do this - your life will change. And you will thank me in the end. And you'll have a group of new friends for the rest of your life!!”

    — Paul Megna, June 2018
     

    "The Source will get you and your career going on a whole different level. It’s unique and unpredictable. It moves you into a driven motion towards accomplishing your personal and professional goals! You’ll love the results!Like Paul says: “ Just trust the process. “" -Ana Prickett Braunstein, Source 28 April 2018

    "Taking “The Source” was the best decision I made for my career. Paul Michael is not only a phenomenal coach, but he also guides you to figure out what’s stopping you to get to the next level. It’s an eye-opening and transformational class that I recommend to all actors! Whether you are starting off in your career or already established, this class is a true journey of growth. Thank you Paul for all of your guidance and support! --
    --Pooja Chandnani Danay, Source 29, March 2018

    "If you're serious about doing the work it takes to transform your life--I mean really serious--then The Source is perfect for you. During my 10 week course, I dropped 25lbs, wrote the business plan for my new company, and completed 2/3 of my screenplay. I also learned invaluable management tools for managing my acting career moving forward: audition technique, agent communication, identifying my type, etc. But The Source is so much more! Paul Michaels' innovative course challenged me at every level to shed my past and step into my highest vision of myself. Well worth the time spent and the money invested."
    -
    Dennis Dumal, Source 23 Actor

    "Attending The Source was one of the best decisions I have made to help advance my acting career. Thank you Paul Michael for extending this program to the DC metro area, for your coaching, challenging exercises and team projects that made for a wonderful journey. My life is forever changed for the better and I feel fully prepared to take my acting career to the Next Level! Living My Dream!"
    - Gayle Carney (December 2017)

    "I cannot thank [Paul] enough for The Source! Being a self-employed person, i.e. actor, is very challenging and this course has given me so many new tools for getting and keeping my business on track. My acting has improved and I'm getting better results from my auditions. I recently booked two films. Also, the relationship with the other actors was very rewarding. I feel I have a real support system. Taking this class is like fine-tuning the engine of a race car. I'm now ready for the race!"
    -Kristin Samuelson (December 2017)

    "Paul Michael not only helps you prepare your business strategy, but he also helps you identify and overcome the obstacles that have prevented you from reaching your goals. The Source is truly a transformational experience. Paul Michael has changed my life. Because of his guidance, preparation, and The Source final showcase, I now have representation [by] a top talent manager."
    -Robin Reck (December 2017)

    The Source was a life-changing journey. A truly empowering class! I’ve taken classes all over NY and nothing really compares to it, no matter the stage you are in your career. I think it should be part of any curriculum that teaches acting because a lot of us come from great acting schools and then you graduate, only to be stuck in limbo. Whether you are lost, or ready to take your career to the next level, this is the program to take! On another level and above all, Paul creates a safe space were we discover the power of awareness and we really dig into the source within us.
    -Veronica Farias (September 2017)

    "I have truly been transformed as an actor through the level of techniques I have attained from Paul Michael of the Source. Paul, is the best I have ever worked with since I have ventured into the world of acting. I find him to be a highly spiritual, loving, centered, generous and caring person, and I’m quite moved by the attributes he carries.
    -Jennifer McIntosh (December 2017)

    "I feel confident and prepared on how to take business meetings with agents and casting directors, and feel like I have the necessary tools for success! Can't thank Paul enough for [his] work and the relationships formed in this class."
    - Josh Domingo

    "It was one of the best courses I have ever taken... It has changed my attitude toward my career. It has made me take charge of it, and I am no longer waiting for something to happen. Rather, I am going to happen."
    - Barbara Miluski

    "It combines not only the business aspect of acting, but the spiritual work that releases the personal blocks we unconsciously create for ourselves. It also provides logistical guidance on things like headshots, what to wear for auditions, sides, your "elevator pitch" (how to most effectively sell yourself to CDs and Agents), etc. Also, Paul is one of the most genuine people I have met in the business. I still bounce almost everything off of Paul. I know the proof is in the pudding too, and the 3 auditions I have had since taking The Source, I booked, including my first pilot! I never offer unsolicited advice, but when an actor asks, I tell them to take The Source."
    -Kirsten O'Brien

    "Paul Michael brought the legit agent I ended up signing with, Judy Boals, and the commercial agent I've been freelancing with, Jerry Kallarakkal from DDO (who got me booked in two commercials), to my acting class's showcase. I could just sum it up by saying that every 'next step' I've made in my career has been through Paul Michael and The Network." - Kieren Mulcare

    "The Source was a valuable experience as it helped me focus my goals and set a solid business plan into motion. It also challenged me to step further out of my comfort zone with the overwhelming support of the other actors- providing a network that will last beyond the 10 week course. It is a class unlike any other. "
    -Kristin Quinn

    "The Source came at a time in my life when I felt artistically stuck and unfocused. Through the weekly assignments, readings, discussions and exercises in and out of class, I have been able to rekindle my inner creativity and purpose and positively move forward in my acting and personal life. Thank you Paul J. Michael for creating this beautiful and rewarding class for actors. You are a gift to creativity and to helping actors reach their artistic and personal goals. You're the best!"
    -Cynthia Shaw

    "Paul Michael's course changed my life."
    - Thalia Longchamp

    "This class is a commitment. Trust the process."
