Mike is a gentleman and supporting creative people is deeply important to him. I plan on turning to him for every audition I need to put on tape. Thanks for being who you are Mike!” – Carrie Anne Fleming – Actress
“Efficiency and reliance served daily is his prominent priority. He effortlessly concocts a comfortable and safe environment for actors to formulate their craft and convey their sometimes opaque intentions. Never once has the stench of judgment ever reared it’s pungent odor, or the sickening dissipation of palpable impatience cast a shadow. He lives and works in a constant state of incandescence, and his energy becomes contagious the more you shower him with monetary restitution. A man of the people and a formidable ally of any thespian. – James Pizzinato – Actor
“I first met Mike some three years ago when my agent in Toronto sent me sides for a strange new Sci-Fi show. I needed to make a self tape, and being new to Vancouver, decided just to go through Casting Workbook. Mike worked there at the time, and even though the sides I was performing were completely absurd, he was polite, honest and professional. A couple years later, after having put many self tapes together with Mike’s assistance, he informed me he was starting his own venture – Mike Wollin Studios. While he was getting organized, setting up shop and such, I was forced to use other outlets for my self tapes. Not to name any names, but was I glad when Mike Wollin Studios was a go! Mike is a first class gentleman and professional through and through. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my audition tapes – that’s for damn sure! – Christopher Russell – Actor
“It was a joy to work with you yesterday! Thank you so much for your professionalism and friendliness! I will definitely work with you again – you are what I call one of “my secret” weapons in acting. I am truly happy that I met you! Thank you again for being so prompt in getting my audition tape out to Mel and for my invoice. You really made it a smooth process for me! There are no words to describe what a delight you are to work with. Best always, – Susie Lee – Actor
“I’ve been working with the Wollinator for my self tapes for over a year with pure joy. Professionalism, punctuality and amazing technical aspects aside, he really and truly has built a warm and creative environment to ensure his clients bring their A-game whether it’s for that standard glossy network thing or your most cutting, raw feature audition. His experience of working with actors has given him the astute ability to get some real gold into the lens and make his clients feel completely at home. Thanks Mike!! – Mark Ghanime – Actor

“I love filming my auditions with Mike because he makes me feel like a star. The room is so warm and inviting, I really do think it’s the best audition room in Vancouver. Somehow Mike always seems to work it so that you sound great, and look amazing. Thanks Mike for getting the job done RIGHT!!! You’re a pro!!” – Fiona Vroom – Actress/Producer – The True Heroines
“The auditioning process is stressful enough-the preparation work, deciding what to wear, and spending hours at home “bathroom acting”-the last thing you want to worry about is the energy in the audition room. I’ve completed several self-tapings with Mike and aside from composing beatifully polished tapes ready for presentation, he is happy and willing to spend the time with you filming take after take after take until you are more than satisfied with the finished product, in other words, I never feel rushed. Feeling comfortable, relaxed, and confident is so essential when auditioning, and Mike has a way of bringing these things out in his actors.” – Daesha Danielle Usman – Actress
