Update: Walking Dead and Sat Fun

Dear Parents and Young Actors,

I have a huge apology to the producers and stars of the show
“WALKING DEAD” on AMC.

This show is being renewed for it’s THIRD season and
Adrian Kali Turner has been in several episodes in both
seasons one and two.

I received several emails correcting me, but here’s the most
informational one, from Actorsiter Adrian Kali Turner’s father:

===

Hello Actorsite (Jack),

I expect that all is going well with and for you.
This is Adrian Kali Turner’s dad.

Please know that we continue to sing Actorsite’s
praises and refer newcomers to LA to your facility.

Thanks for the shout-out to Adrian Kali Turner.

Please note, however, that AMC DID pick-up
the WALKING DEAD as a Series.

In fact, the show is now in its second season.
Adrian has a recurring role on the
show and will be returning later in the Season.

This Fall, look for Adrian on the new ABC series,
“Apartment 23”.

Also, Adrian just returned from the Georgia mountains,
where he was filming his role in the feature film,
“The Goats,” starring Val Kilmer.

Thanks for your continued support.

Thank you so much Roy, for setting me straight and updating me
on Adrian’s career.

GOOD JOB ADRIAN!

Now I’ll have to find out how to find additional episodes on Netflix.

Oct 25 Info

Dear Parents and Young Actors,

Last night, my wife and I watched a program on
Netflix called "WALKING DEAD". We like zombie movies
and this was a TV Pilot, and as I watched, I saw
Actorsiter Adrian Kali Turner as one of the stars.

His performance was compelling and understated and
the show was super, too bad it didn't get picked up
to series.

NICE JOB ADRIAN!

Here's his IMDB:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2648101/

This is the time for the Actorsite to "raise the bar"
and push more young artists to success...

So it's up to you to "raise the bar" too. 

We started with six kids in our original classes
and it has grown to what we have today.

So, here's what I'm planning.

I've seen how there are so many conflicting opinions on
just about every aspect of building a Hollywood career.

So I'll just try to sort some out some of these opinions
and give some guidance from my perspective.

One casting director says this, one casting director
says that…

But what do they really respond to?

I've been at this long enough to see, so I'll share my
thoughts with you.

Keep watching our emails for info.

In the meantime, here are some announcements for you.

***First, we have some info from our OCT 18 Showcase up
on the blog.

Here's the link to see that info:
http://www.actorsite.com/2011/10/showcase-info/

***Second, WEDNESDAY'S HOME SCHOOL CLASSES are
VOICE OVER, so we will be working on VOICEOVER SCENES!

***Third, WEDNESDAY'S AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES are 
ON-CAMERA, so be sure to arrive ready to work on-camera.

***Fourth, we are planning a big agent night soon, so
get your headshots ready, and get a scene ready to rock!

***Fifth, I fixed the link for the HOLIDAY CAMP so you can
now sign up for that.

Here you go:
http://actorsite.com/freepages/youthcamps/holidaycamp.html

Remember, NOW is the time to "push forward" when there
are small classes and individual attention.

ALL acting classes during pilot season are full to 
capacity. So if you wait until then, expect less 
attention and more competition..

Pilot season is a fun and exciting time in Hollywood, from January
through April, and it's best to be as prepared as you
can BEFORE you get to Hollywood.

All the best,

Jack Turnbull
