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: https://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 Actorsite.com Congratulations to some of our ACTORSITE SUCCESS STORIES: Kelsey Chow, Starring on "PAIR OF KINGS" for DISNEY XD Tiffany Espensen, starring on "BUCKET AND SKINNER" on NICK Jake Short, starring on "ANT FARM" on DISNEY Stefanie Scott, starring on "ANT FARM" on DISNEY Aedin Mincks, starring on "ANT FARM" on DISNEY Cameron Palatas, starring on "ANT FARM" and a new series on MTV Adam Irigoyen, starring on "SHAKE IT UP" on DISNEY Kenton Duty, starring on "SHAKE IT UP" on DISNEY Davis Cleveland, starring on "SHAKE IT UP" on DISNEY Victoria Justice, TV and Recording star.
