Sherman Oaks, CA, May 15, 2013 – It looks like another HOT year for young Actorsiters as we update TV PILOT BOOKINGS and SHOW PICKUPS!
This fall season, you’ll have a TON of young Actorsiters to watch on your TV SET, or on your computer (since some of us are moving more and more to our computer or mobile devices).

I’m always excited this time of year when I see how many young Actorsiters who have move to a NEW level with their career.

First, let’s give a big shout-out to Actorsiter LANDON GIMENEZ as he stars in the new ABC TV drama, THE RETURNED, with OMAR EPPS, and KURTWOOD SMITH. It’s an exciting drama and LANDON plays SMITH’s son who has returned from the dead…FUN!

We’ll watch for young Actorsiter MATEUS WARD, who is starring as TONI COLLETE’S son in the new ABC TV drama HOSTAGES which also stars DYLAN MCDERMOTT. EXCELLENT!

And we’ll look forward to seeing Actorsiter EVE MOON in the new comedy THE MILLERS, starring WILL ARNETT and BEAU BRIDGES, from writer GREG CARCIA. EXCITING!

SUPER HEROES ABOUND this season, and the new show MIGHTY MED  from DISNEY XD is no exception. It stars Actositer JAKE SHORT as a doctor who fixes ailing superheroes, and Actorsiter PARIS BERELC as SKYLER STORM, a superhero. FANTASTIC!

COME TRY A FREE “FAST TRACK PRO” CLASS AS A BOOST TO SUCCESS!

PARENTHOOD IS BACK on NBC this fall, so you’ll get your dose of Actorsiters SARAH RAMOS as MADDIE BRAVERMAN, and Actorsiter SAVANNAH PAIGE RAE as SYDNEY GRAHAM.

Plus, that show has cast a TON of young Actorsiters in guest roles. SUPER!

I’m counting on MTV to give a fourth season to the hit show AWKWARD, starring two young Actorsiters, Ashley Rickards and Jillian Rose Reed. We’ll know in JULY, but in the meantime, we have a full 20 episodes this season to watch, so get your AWKWARD fix.

GREAT NEWS: ABC has picked up another season of THE MIDDLE, starring Actorsiter Charlie McDermott as AXL HECK, and for so many episodes, ACTORSITER KATLIN MASTANDREA as ASHLEY

We also love to see KATLIN MASTANDREA as OLIVIA on ANGER MANAGEMENT….

I’ll try to add to this message later, since it’s getting a little long winded…

We keep training the young stars of tomorrow at the Actorsite.

All the best,

2. You’ve got the look they need, NOW BOOK IT! Even if you are exactly right for a commercial, you still need to show personality and directability (The ability to be directed).

3. Using IMPROVISATION to make your characters come alive! Kimberly is a master at teaching young actors to COME ALIVE on camera, even when everyone else in your audition is just standing
there.

4. 5 Commercials, 5 Different Challenges, 5 ways to book those National Commercials.

5. Practice Auditioning, practice callbacks, practice booking, and, see the playback of your audition, and the person who booked it!

5. The “BUTTON” to make them demand an encore! When your audition ROCKS, end it with ENERGY and POWER!

3 Tips to BOOK MORE COMMERCIALS!

So many young Actorsiters booking commercials!
COACH TARYN SCHUBERT IMPROV trains  BOOKERS!

I love it when I see so many familiar faces in commercials on TV! I just BEAM WITH PRIDE knowing that those young artists were trained at the Actorsite. So I KNOW that our program works. Acting Coach Taryn Schubert puts her “magic touch” onto each young actor.

So many young Actorsiters are booking commercials right now.
 And parents keep telling me they credit the constant IMPROV training at Actorsite, and particularly the training with ActingCoach Taryn Schubert. Every one of her classes include IMPROVISATION and we also have the full IMPROV WORKOUT every SUNDAY EVENING!

TIP 1: Practice Improv with Acting Coach Taryn Schubert. (Actorsite kids are taking over the commercials, is Coach Taryn the “secret weapon” for booking? —I think so!)

Congratulations to VAN SANTANDER booking the BANK OF AMERICA COMMERCIAL campaign, and Congratulations to DYLAN SHEPHERD, booking the VERIZON campaign, and watch forJAEDEN BETTENCOURT in the ABOUT YELLOW STORE campaign.

TIP 2: Walk into the room like you own it and TAKE OVER THE ROOM! (Coach Taryn and ALL of our coaches focus on the acting skills that give each young actor CONFIDENCE and SHARPENED TALENT, so they BOOK MORE!)

And ALEXIS BAUMERT is ROCKING! She’s not only in the ATT campaign, but she also booked a VO for GILROY GARDENS. Those THURSDAY VO workouts with super VO Coach Gianna Burkeare paying off!

And that’s Actorsiter JAMIE MCRAE in the National SPRINT campaign.

Speaking of the ATT campaign, I really enjoy watching MILLY D when I am watching the playoffs on TV. It’s fresh and fun and she credits Taryn’s improv classes with keeping her sharp with IMPROV.

Add in a few more to the ATT campaign, like JAYDEN MADDUX, LAYLA CRAWFORD, ALEXIS BAUMERT, and JAEDEN BETTENCOURT...plus probably a couple more as soon as they tell us…not everyone does!

And YES, that is Actorsiter ADAM CHERNICK in the FACEBOOK HOME Campaign…that’s him with the chocolate on his face!

TIP 3: Have FUN in the Audition room. Young actors who show confidence, flexibility, and the JOY OF PERFORMING, will always book MORE than those who go in with a bad attitude.
Go in, have fun, and then ride home feeling SUPER!—-CALLBACK TIME!

This is a small sample of some recent bookings by young Actorsiters who are constantly training and gaining CONFIDENCE and SKILLS in our ACTORSITE FAST TRACK PRO CLASSES!

If you want YOUR CHILD to succeed, you’ll bring them to ACTORSITE and TRAIN FOR SUCCESS!

Come try a free class today, HERE’S A SCHEDULE OF CLASSES!
