Looking to break into the Atlanta TV/film industry or just get a leg up on the competition? Here’s your chance.

The Muriel Moore/Danny Nelson SAG-AFTRA Conservatory will celebrate its seventh anniversary with an opportunity for all talent to move up on their peers and those wanting to get into the field. May 6 from 7 to 10 p.m., 21 of Atlanta’s top SAG-AFTRA franchised agencies will share how talent can successfully compete in Atlanta’s exploding TV/film entertainment market. It will be held at Wieuca Road Baptist Church’s sanctuary, 3626 Peachtree Road in Buckhead, with free parking.

Attendees are asked to bring food donations, which will go to the Buckhead Christian Ministry’s C. Spencer Godfrey Food Pantry, and a head shot and resume.

Agent panelists include those from Actors LA Agency, Aligned Stars Agency, Atlanta Models and Talent, Avery Sisters Entertainment, bmg Talent, The Burns Agency, Houghton Talent, The People Store, Stewart Talent, The Jana VanDyke Agency and Alexander White Agency. Agents from Classic Talent Agency, iSubmit Talent Agency, Kathleen Schultz Associates, The Littman Group, STW Talent Agency and East Coast Talent will also be onsite.

By the numbers:

♦ 1,000s of pounds of food donated to help those in community through Atlanta Conservatory events and the generosity of its members to the food pantry.

♦ 110-plus programs and instructors — top casting directors, producers, directors, agents, writers, stunt performers and coordinators and fellow actors at conservatory bimonthly programs — continuing to raise the bar as actors work their craft.

♦ 8,000-plus have attended conservatory events to date.

♦ 200% increase from eight to 21 agents — from the first agent roundtable event to this year’s event.

♦ 200% increase in Atlanta SAG-AFTRA members in the past seven years — from an average of 800 to almost 2,400.
