what people are saying...

"You have this great ability to speak with authority and experience without coming off as a 'know it all.

You make the environment safe which allows creativity and growth. Thank you!"

-- ALEX DITMER

"This business is full of shysters, con-artists and souls so jaded
art will sadly never reach them;
you however are the Real McCoy.

Beneath your gruff exterior, staunch professionalism and hard-ass perfectionism is a charismatic,
discerning and inspired genius."

-- NICOLE POOLE

"I really don’t know how to say how grateful I am for everything over the past few weeks— thank you is not enough!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for my career make-over.”

what people are saying...

"Paul Russell, gives it to you straight and honest, but without being destructive to your actor's soul. "

-- MELINA GAMMERSBACH
Cologne, Germany
(SKYPE Student)

"I teach at the International Film School in Cologne. I had a fantastic group of 10 German actors.

We were fortunate to have Paul Russell, via Skype, to talk with the actors about working in the US.

Paul in his usually direct but very caring manner toward actors, shared with them his many years of experience as a casting director and director.

The actors also had the opportunity to pose questions to Paul which he answered in his animated, humorous way.

Thank you Paul! It was a very informative, helpful, interactive and fun evening!"

-- KATHLEEN RENISH
Cologne, Germany
(actress & instructor)

"Paul helped me with my audition at my home here in Chicago from his office in New York.

Without his caring and insightful guidance I wouldn't have had a successful audition!

I got the part!

Thanks Paul!"
