Paul

I have always wanted to pursue my dreams of being a performer but my finances and location limited my opportunities. I stumbled on to the site and felt I had nothing to lose for $10. I uploaded my pictures, my bio and some videos of myself. I would get these notifications that my profile was viewed by a VIP and would get really excited. Soon the excitement would turn to disappointment because nothing happened beyond that.  I stayed patient and uploaded new pictures and videos to keep my profile updated hoping someone will take notice. I waited two years and bam! I got an email from a casting director asking me to audition for a project. A few weeks later I was on set with the World Famous figure skater Yuna Kim starring in a national commercial! Short after I landed my manager and agent moved to LA and started to fully pursue my career.  I am not joking when I say this site changed my life!

Natalina (Los Angeles, CA)

Name

To become a working actor you have to use everything available to get your name out there and be seen. I had my profile up on many industry sites but always got the best opportunities from WWSS. I like how they screen all the VIPS to ensure only serious professionals are viewing your profile. I also like the fact my profile is not viewable to non VIP'S. If people want to connect and look at my pics and friend me they are welcome to do so on my Facebook. On WWSS, my privacy is protected and let’s me know every time I am viewed it’s by someone important.

 

Natalina is currently a successful working actor and is represented by CESD, Coast to Coast, VOX, Arch Talent Group and managed by Global One Management

Jennifer (Indianapolis, IN)

I am a 2009 alumni but got my start while I was in Indiana. I was able to be scouted from having my profile on the site and from the got the chance to attend the live event. From the live event I signed with a top agent and shortly after moved to Los Angeles. Since my move I have signed with a manager and a print agent and booked a SAG national Commercial for Turbo Tax working with the Oscar & Emmy award-winning makeup artist Ve Neill.  I just finished a project for Ron Howard's Project Imaginat10n and wouldn't be where I am today without Worldwide Star Search!

My experience with World Wide Star Search has been amazing.  Being so far away not being able to auditon was always a big issue. Being on this site has alimnated many of those issues and have been able to get opportunites that I would not normally get. I want to thank WWSS and the VIPS for giving girls like me a chance too!

김유빈 (서을, 한국)

세게적인 K-Pop 스타 원더걸스의 멤버 ‘유빈’양도 WWSS를 통해 꿈을 키워갔습니다. WWSS 쇼케이스에서 VIP 멤버가 그녀의 활약을 인정했고, 그녀에게 무한대의 기회를 제공하는 계기가 되었습니다. 유빈의 사례는 조그마한 노력이 얼마나 큰 결과를 초래하는지 보여주는 좋은 예입니다.

 

PAUL (Fullerton, CA)

저는 언제나 실력있는 배우를 꿈꿔왔지만, 항상 금전적인 문제와 주변 환경의 한계에 부딪혔습니다. 저는 제 꿈을 위해 월드와이드 스타서치 웹사이트에 가입했고, 10달러를 잃는 것 쯤은 아무것도 아니라고 생각했습니다. 프로필 사진을 등록하고, 매력을 어필할 수 있는 레쥬메를 차근차근 작성했고, 그동안 참여했던 프로젝트의 동영상도 업데이트했습니다. 어느 날, 제 프로필을 VIP가 확인했다는 공지를 받았고, 정말 기쁨을 감출 수 없었습니다. 하지만, 그 뒤로 러브콜은 오지 않았습니다. 저는 인내심을 가지고 기다렸고, 수시로 프로필을 관리하며 업계 관계자들에게 연락이 오기만을 기다렸습니다. 그렇게 2년을 기다렸고, 마침내 꿈이 실현되는 순간이 제게도 찾아왔습니다! 한 캐스팅 디렉터로부터 오디션 제의를 받았고, 몇주 후 저는 세계적으로 유명한 피겨 여왕 김연아 선수와 광고를 찍게되었습니다. 그로부터 얼마 후, 매니저와 에이전시를 만나 지금까지 커리어를 하나하나 쌓아가고 있습니다. ‘월드 와이드 스타 서치’는 제 인생을 바꿔놓은 것과 다름 없다고 말하고 싶습니다!

최정기 (서을, 한국)

3일간의 월드 와이드 스타서치를 위해 약 2개월 정도 준비를 했습니다. 비교적 짧은 준비 기간이었지만 나름대로 주어진 시간안에 최선을 다 한것 같아서 후회는 남지 않았습니다.
하지만 스타서치를 통해서 내가 많이 부족 하다는 것을 알았고 내년에 있을 스타서치를 위해 무엇을 준비해야 하는지 어떻게 준비해야 하는지 등에 대해 알게 되었습니다. VIP들과의 만남은 아주 인상깊었고 그들은 내가 무엇이 부족했는지 또는 무엇이 좋았는지에 관해 얘기를 해주었습니다. 가장 기억에 남는 말은 글로벌 원에서 계속 있으면서 내년에도 봤으면 한다는 말이었습니다. 또한 모노로그를 할때 침착하고 떨지않는게 장점이지만 정확한 시선처리를 해야 한다는 지적을 받았고 작은 목소리는 자신감이 없어보이기 때문에 목소리또한 조금 높여야 한다고 말습니다. 다른 VIP는 연기를 할때 본인의 어두운 면을 보았고 그것이 나중에 연기를 할때에 많은 도움이 될 것이라고 얘기했습니다. 여러가지로 많은 것을 얻은 쇼케이스였고 더 큰무대를 위한 첫번째 문이였다고 생각합니다. 내년에 있을 월드 와이드 스타서치가 벌써 기다려지고 그것을 위해 남은 일년동안 여러가지 노력을 할 생각입니다.

송동호 (서을, 한국)

정말 은혜로은 시간이였습니다. 최고의 날이였구여. 저에게 이런 기회와 이 기회를 발판 삼어 더 높은곳으로 올라갈수 있는 은혜를 주신것. 저외에 모든 참가자들에게 이런 기회와 빛날수있고 다른 사람에게 알릴수있는, 그리고 두려움을 이겨내고 자신감을 가질수있는 한 단계 자기 자신을 업그레이드 시킬수있는 값진 경험을 주신것. 저 또한 이번 World Wide Star Search를 통해 한 단계 업그레이드 되고 자신감을 가졌으며 또한 제 이력서에도 추가할수 있는 값진 경험을 주신것 감사드립니다.
요번 World Wide Star Search를 통해서 부족한 저에게 너무나 많은 은혜를 주셔서. 꼭 다른 사람에게도 추천드리고 싶습니다. 자기 자신을 한층 업그레이드 시킬수 있으며 엔터테인먼트 쪽으로 나가구 싶은 알려지지 않은 많은 탤런트에게도 한 단계 발전해날갈수 있는 첫걸음이 될수있습니다. 많은 VIP를 만날수 있으며 그 사람에게 자기 자신을 보여줄수있는. 저 또한 이번 World Wide Star Search를 통해서 많은 VIP를 만났으며 3군데서 call back을 받었습니다(WMTA, Nemo Art, Joshua Yoon) 그리고 트로피와 장학금까지. 저에게는 너무나도 영광스럽웠습니다. 아무것도 모르는 부족한 저에게 아직 시작한지 고작 2달 밖에 않된 저에게 이런 기회와 이런 생각지도 못한 상과 장학금. 이번 World Wide Star Search를 진행해주신 모든 관계자 분들께 감사드리고 이 모든 영광을 하나님께 바칩니다

Eileen Paek (Los Angeles, CA)

1...월드 와이드 스타셔치를 준비하시는데 여러모로 수고 많으셨습니다.. 쇼가 순조롭고 성대히 잘 끝난것에 대해서도 깊은 감사드립니다. 그리고 우리들은 당신들을 영원히 잊지 못할것입니다.
2...이번 월드 와이드 스타셔치는 너무도 감동적이고, 뜻깊은 시간들이었습니다. Eileen과 저회들은 2010년의 이순간들을 잊지 않을것입니다. 다양한 탤런트를 볼수 있었고, 이번 쇼로 인해 더많은 것을 배울수 있어 정말 뜻있는 자리였다고 생각합니다.
3...회사이름은 잘 기억이 나질 않지만, kids 에 관련된 회사들중 제일 큰 에이전트들이 3군데 있었는데,,아무튼 일괄적인 공통된 내용이었습니다.
우리아이가 탤런트가 좋으니 연락 을 해서 다시 만나 함께 해 보자 라고 말했어요..이 외엔 다른 말은 잘 이해도 못했고,, 그냥 이런 저런 아이와의 대화 정도...

WOW! This site is amazing! I loved that i had this opportunity to show these different agents what i can and love to do. I have never done modeling before so that was very exciting.  Worldwide Star Search has changed my life in a better way. It has changed my life by teaching me to be confident, strong, and believe in myself.
