Is your child a future series regular or movie star? YES!

Actorsite’s AWESOME ACTING CLUB
Working with future series regulars and movie stars—-Jack Turnbull
SHARK BOY AND LAVA GIRL
RESURRECTION
OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY
Dear Readers,

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 12.30.30 PMThis morning, my 7 year old daughter discovered SHARK BOY AND LAVA GIRL,
the Robert Rodriguez film starring a couple of Actorsiters.
They were young at the time. And it was super to be reminded what they were like when studying at the Actorsite.
So a big Actorsite Shout Out to CAYDEN and TAYLOR! Good job guys!
And, SUNDAY, my wife and I watched the series finale for RESURRECTION, starring Actorsiter Landon Gimenez…exciting!Will there be another season so we know what happens?I hope so!
PLUS, we watched the exiting show MAN OF STEEL, the young Superman story which featured Actorsiter Jadin Gould as a young LANA LANG. She can also be seen starring on GREY’S ANATOMY this season as IVY MCNEIL. EXCELENTE!
Acting tip: Don’t EVER show up late for your booking. Get
there an hour early if you have to, and go to the nearest
coffee shop to chill until your call time.
Why?
I was just talking to one of the producers of a major
show and I said, “are there any tips you can give?”.
“I can’t believe the actors who show up late”, he stated,
“That means we will never have you back on this show or
any of our other shows.”
He seemed to think this was a teenage thing, but parents
need to let their teenagers know that a lackadaisical approach
to a guest role on TV will kill your career!
Are you raising an “entitlement child”? If so, remember that
it will kill your child’s career.
An acting career is EARNED.
Showing up late means you are being disrespectful. Producers will ALWAYS remember it when you show up late. It will kill a career.
SUPER!
UPGRADE YOUR TRAINING!

ACTORSITER SEAN RYAN FOX BOOKS STARRING ROLE IN NEW NICK SERIES “HENRY DANGER”

Actorsite’s AWESOME ACTING CLUB
Be ready to BOOK this YEAR! Upgrade your training and SAVE!
Mobile Video Web Site…….
Sean Ryan Fox visits Actorsite.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4051119/Dear Readers,

Actorsiter Sean Ryan Fox dropped by last night. His new show for

Sean Ryan Fox

Sean Ryan Fox

Nickelodeon starts shooting in JULY, so he’s got a little
free time. He enjoyed the Voiceover class with Amber,
and we had a great time talking and laughing.

His new show is called HENRY DANGER, and it’s produced by
Dan Schneider of VICTORIOUS, ICARLY, and SAM AND CAT fame!

Booking this was timed just right, because his voice
was changing and he aged out of “JAKE AND THE NEVERLAND
PIRATES.”

Nice visit.

Sean said he’s mad because we don’t have him up on the “WALL OF
FAME” at Actorsite,  so I’ll fix it right away. YOU ROCK, BUDDY!

A tip from Sean’s Mom below….

Delivering Your Video Auditions Problems Solved:
One of our Actorsite parents developed aMOBILE VIDEO WEB SITE that
solves the “how do they reach me” issues when you send
your video to producers/casting, etc.

65% of all casting videos are viewed on a MOBILE DEVICE!

It’s time to give them a great viewing platform which includes
links to your Agent/Manager/Acting Sites, etc…

And, when you change your video, it changes all of them on all your sites….saving time and money.

They are offering a super discount to my newsletter readers.
http://www.acting2casting.com

I made suggestions to tweak the system, and it seems very
intuitive and easy to use. See what you think.

Now, here’s some advice from Sean’s Mom:

Parent’s, control yourself!

Sean’s mom told me about an episode on a project he
was shooting where one of the parents pitched a fit
because the internet wasn’t working great during the
school session that day. It wasn’t the teacher’s fault,
but the parent wanted to vent to the teacher.

Needless to say, when a parent can’t control themselves on
set, it will kill the child’s career.

The child was replaced by one with a more reasonable parent.

My advice: If you come across a situation you cannot control,
and everyone is working hard to fix the situation, then chill
out and let life happen around you. Don’t insert yourself negatively into
a situation that is already having issues.

And especially,  don’t pitch a fit. It only looks bad for you and for your
child.

SUPER!

Remember, you are the CEO of your child’s career, and that
means you must be responsible and respectful.

All the best,

Jack Turnbull

ACTORSITERS GUEST STARRING TONIGHT!

Dear Parents and Young Actors,

Today, I spent some time on FACEBOOK, and I am OVERWHELMED with the success of young Actorsiters.

https://www.facebook.com/actorsite

I remember each young actor, and I also remember learning from each parent about what it takes to STAY IN THE GAME, because each of these families stuck it out to success. A “tip of the hat” to all the parents of these young actors who keep them focused and in the game.

Not everyone does. Some get distracted…it’s not failure,it’s distraction. It’s not quitting, it’s changing priorities.

If your priority is success in Hollywood, you keep your child focused on training at the ACTORSITE

Actorsite is always TRAINING, SUPPORTING, GUIDING, and providing a SOLID BASE to young artists…

We love to see so much success! It makes what we are doing well worth it.

TONIGHT is a BUSY NIGHT for Actorsiters.

  • ·      The Actor As CEO
  • ·      Building a Solid Foundation
  • ·      Crash Training
  • ·      Casting Director Workshops
  • ·      Our ONLY GOAL is YOUR SUCCESS!

At the Actorsite, we promote “the Actor as CEO” of their career. This has worked well for our  clients over the last 20+ years.

The actor practices skills  and builds a career as well as hiring an agent as a sales person and many times a manager for further industry connections.

It works.

We’ve enjoyed watching over 100 artists become series regulars or movie stars while training at the Actorsite. Plus hundreds more build solid careers using the skills we teach.

With the philosophy of “Acting is a muscle, you have to work it out”, we continually  hone  the Actorsite training program so that we provide always provide a firm foundation to build an acting career.

Actorsiters quickly learn to be smart about their career. As a CEO they must adapt quickly.

 

We provide the tools so you can work on skills.

Welcome to Actorsite’s Awesome Acting Club.
