AMTC thanks God for over three decades of success stories in film, fashion, music, and theater. Says CSO, Carey Lewis, ‘Success in the entertainment industry is about what you know and who you know. AMTC teaches inspired performers what they need to know—then puts them in front of who they need to see. Marketability trumps talent. Both spiritual preparation and practical education are essential.’

Equipping these talented actors, models and talent to go into the Entertainment Industry and redeem the mass media of entertainment is extremely important, these are the people whom God has called to redeem the culture. I am grateful to speak at AMTC.

SHINE is an opportunity to not only meet industry professionals from across the nation but also to work on your craft in a week’s time. AMTC consistently offers amazing seminars, panel discussions, and showcases while staying centered in Christ. It’s a blessing to be able to meet with all of the new talent each season and encourage them on their journey.

Brittany Giles

Thank you so much for having me at such an amazingly organized show case, SHINE 13’. Everyone there was so helpful and super nice. I met many amazing talent as well as agents and look forward to working with them. We look forward to the next AMTC showcase.

I have been attending AMTC for over 10 years now. Throughout the years the talent just keeps getting better! The event grows stronger with all the passion and hard work that everyone brings to SHINE. I feel so blessed to be a part of the experience, and I love attending because I know I will always find awesome talent. It is also a wonderful experience to network with other industry professionals.”

As casting director for Sherwood Pictures, I can wholeheartedly recommend AMTC for those actors and entertainers who have big dreams and big talent but need a boost in getting their career started or taken to the next level. The learning and networking opportunities at this event are invaluable. We cast 6 actors in our most recent film COURAGEOUS, as a result of our experience on the judging panels of AMTC.
