Hello there - Avalon Agency is hitting the road!! I'm very excited to announce that once I am fully healed & recovered from cancer surgery, I will be working freelance in casting & production for an upcoming indie music documentary that will be shooting throughout NY/NJ/PA in early-mid Fall!! I'll be working remotely, but also on set for some of the production dates.

For my friends in the Northeast area, I hope we can meet for lunch while I'm there, and if you know of any private subleases or temporary housing options, feel free to send me a PM. I'll be looking at various housing/hotel groups & websites, but always appreciate personal leads, too. Thank you and have a fabulous week!! Hugs, Patty ❤️

Hello friends! Today I am bursting with pride to announce that a special friend and one of our students, Salvador Ramirez, is the star of the upcoming "Death to Me," which is by George Martinez, Jr. and it's up for consideration for film festivals. Congratulations to Salvador and I wish him and everyone involved in this film great success!

When I first met Salvador, I said to myself this man is a star. He has such natural, raw talent and a deep passion and commitment to his craft. Plus, he is genuinely one of the nicest and most professional people I have had the pleasure to know. We love you Salvador... keep on letting that light shine! ❤️

Avalon Agency is thrilled to hear about the SAG/AFTRA short film booking for Salvador Ramirez!

When this talented, dynamic man first walked in to Avalon Agency, Robert and I looked at each other and said "WOW. " After a strong cold read and impressive improvised assignment, we knew Salvador had something very special. It was a joy to watch him continue to dazzle in every scene or monologue he was given to perform. He's a good actor with a powerful presence on screen.

We wish him all the best and know his hard work and determination are going to continue to pay off in a big way.

Keep living your dreams, Salvador, and congratulations!

What a great cast! Congrats to all the actors who booked the Sag-Aftra short ADJUNTO ❤️

Avalon Agency would like to shine the spotlight on a very special person, Mr. Ryan Donegan, one of our star acting students.

Despite the challenges of autism, "Donny" works hard on his craft, is passionate about acting and always has a great big smile on his face! We are so proud of him and wish nothing but amazing success in his career.

When you've worked in the media and Performing Arts for so many years like I and my fellow creative director Robert Levy have, it's easy to become discouraged and slightly jaded about what you see, but this young man personally makes me love what I do and inspires me to keep going with my own dreams.

Thank you to all who have supported our company Avalon Agency. If you want to find out more about us, please stop by our page. Cheers!

Avalon Agency 2018 V.I.P. Stars

This little video was created out of my love for the glamour days of show business and the wonderful people who make my life so special.

I combined vintage Hollywood with our current students, clients and friends of Avalon Agency Chicago, and was inspired to pay tribute to my beautiful mama Elaine who gave me a life long passion for movies and music. It features a song from her favorite band, the Glenn Miller Orchestra.

Cheers to a fabulous 2018!
