This week Joey Rubenstein @castingfrontier & JOANNE BARON @ActatBaronBrown

This week Actor Will Roberts talks to Joey Rubenstein (CEO) – Casting FrontierJOANNE BARON- Acting Studios – Meisner Technique. Real questions for real actors to succeed in the entertainment industry.

Joey Rubenstein (CEO) – Casting Frontier

Joey Rubenstein (CEO) – Casting Frontier

Casting Frontier has secured its place in the entertainment industry as the number one innovator of digital casting tools. Previously, casting directors used paper size cards, Polaroids, and couriers to ship audition tapes across the city or country. Actors needed to print stacks of expensive head shots and resumes to procure auditions. In 2006, Casting Frontier changed all of that with the launch of iSession™.
Using their years of experience in commercial casting and technology, Joey Rubenstein (CEO) and Andreas Tompros (COO) created a revolutionary audition-uploading system that allows casting directors to streamline their work flow.

Building on that initial success, Casting Frontier has since developed into a complete casting solution, moving the entire process online and reducing the carbon footprint of the casting business.
It is also the first company to develop a comprehensive set of mobile casting and talent submission tools specifically designed for iOS and Android.

JOANNE BARON is the Founder and Artistic Director of the Baron Brown Studio

JOANNE BARON- Acting Studios – Meisner Technique

JOANNE BARON is the Founder and Artistic Director of the Baron Brown Studio. Ms. Baron studied the Meisner Technique under Sanford Meisner and William Esper in New York, the latter whom she trained to teach. Ms. Baron was one of William Esper’s first teachers at his private Studio and later opened The Joanne Baron Studio in New York. Ms. Baron is also a highly regarded actress in theater, television, and film, whose credits include Spider-Man 2, Real Genius, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Mad Men,” and the series “Love.” She has also produced several films including Perfume which she costarred in with Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Williams and Allie and Me where she played the title role opposite Lainie Kazan and Dyan Cannon.

Voiceover Achiever: Brand your VoiceOver career. Change your life by @CeliaSiegel

What if nothing could stop you? How BIG would you dream?

My big, beautiful vision is a world where every voice actor has an authentic (and therefore awesome!) brand. But I realize that’s a BIG ask… and that it’s not humanly possible to work with every voice actor in the world.

That’s why I wrote this book: Voiceover Achiever: Brand Your VO Career, Change Your Life.

Because fine… if I can’t work with every voice actor in the world, I want them to have access to my knowledge and my secrets! I want them to know how to create a brand they fall-to-the-floor adore. One that is magnetic to their ideal clients.
So if you want to make 2018 the beginning of your best year yet — I wrote this book for you.

If you know you need to nail down your personal brand but aren’t sure how — I wrote this book for you.

If you want to show up in the world—powerfully — I wrote this book for you.

If you want to create a brand that can change your life — I wrote this book for you.

In Voiceover Achiever, I’ve shared the steps (and secrets!) my team and I use to build career-catapulting brands for our clients. And now they’re yours.


Celia Siegel is the founder of Celia Siegel Management, widely recognized for building strong personal brands for voice talent. Before creating CSM, Celia was a respected talent agent with stints at CESD, JE and Wehmann. A brand builder, certified life and business coach, success strategist and talent manager, Celia has advanced the careers of top VO talent for more than two decades.

No matter where you are in your voiceover career, my team and I can help you make sound business choices and strategize for success. Before founding & building CSM, I was a top West Coast talent agent (CESD). The fact that I am also a certified business and life coach comes in handy in many ways for my clients’ emotional and financial well-being.

I help talent identify when taking classes and auditioning has become a full time job instead of the actual paying work, and how they can fix that by turning activity into a powerful career. My multi-leveled expertise and extensive knowledge of the ever-changing voiceover industry helps voice actors across the globe grow their VO business and take their careers to the next level.
