It’s a historic ride through one of the world’s favorite cult genres: “Miami Bass,” and a thrilling memoir that also features the Top 10 Strip Club Cities in America, what happens at a freakshow, and how to pull a caper. The past, present, and future collide in dramatic fashion as the rollercoaster highs and lows of a life on the road bestow their pleasures and take their tolls. Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and raised in Brooklyn, Christopher Wong Won’s journey through life as a Chinese Afro-Caribbean immigrants reflects the hopes and dreams of America today. From overcoming the adversity of a life altering injury, introducing Southern hip hop to the world, bringing sex and rap together in songs that are still played and imitated today, selling platinum, shocking and offending, and then watching an empire come crashing down around him in a hail of lawsuits through graft, mismanagement, greed, and thievery, Fresh Kid Ice has seen it all. Learn about the man and the group, whose music is featured in the movies Boyz N The Hood, Friday, Twins, New Jack City, Project X, and the videogame Grand Theft Auto in a deeply graphic book that reveals never before told stories that will leave you breathless and amazed. In “MY RISE 2 FAME” you will discover that Fresh Kid Ice and the crew inspired legendary Rap acts such as NWA, Cash Money Records, and so many more.

CASTING 101 LAB

Whether you’re making a blockbuster hit or a nano-budget indie flick, all filmmakers know that matching an actor to the script is crucial to the success of a film. Yes, some directors choose to do it themselves, but the experience and expertise of a casting director is invaluable to the pre-production process. Actors and filmmakers alike are able to maximize creativity and success if a casting director puts the two together correctly.

From how to get the best out of your casting director to finding the right talent agent who will book you in Miami, LA and New York, this is an incredibly valuable workshop that will demystify the process from the complementing perspectives of a group of successful professionals: actor Jordi Vilasuso, casting director/manager Manny Arca, and casting directors Ed Arena and George Ortiz.

If you are an actor in South Florida planning to attend, please bring your headshot and your reel, we are creating an actor archive that we would like to share with our members and the casting directors in attendance.
