Kids & Teens eNews June/July 2013

AGENT VISIT!

August 24th

Our 4-month Summer session will have its Grand Finale Saturday, August 24th, when the parents will join us in the Theatre from 10am – noon for the kids and from 1-3pm for the teens to view the young actors performing improv and scenes live onstage, as well as watching their taped scenes or monologues on the widescreen! 

Rick Estimond of Hot Shot Kids/Teens will be there to watch our kids and answer questions for them and their parents.

Kitty Bundy of Presence Models & Talent will be giving critique and feedback to our teens.

We are very proud of these students and know you’ll want to be there to watch your child or teen, and to listen to the agent’s feedback.  Don’t miss it!

Please Note: Because this is a live performance, we ask that you leave small children at home if possible.

BUSINESS OF ACTING SEMINAR

Mark your calendar!

We will have a “Business of Acting Seminar” for parents during regular class hours Saturday, July 13 covering headshots, resume’s, agents, auditions, and more.  You’ll be given materials to take home with you. 

Bob Harter or Della Cole will be in the lobby explaining these subjects and answering your questions about how to best support your child or teen in their pursuit of an acting career, if that is their goal.  Even if you or your child or teen are not sure at this point in their training, this is valuable info just in case they decide later to seek representation and begin auditioning.

SURVEY 4 U

You will soon be receiving a short survey from us.  Please take a minute to respond.  Your feedback has always helped us improve our classes. 

Share with the subscribers to our Newsletter how your training at yourACT has benefitted you as a parent, and what it has done for your child or teen.

What auditions, acting gigs, insights and experiences have you gained that you can share to encourage and enlighten others? 

yourACT actors are having an impact on the Atlanta entertainment & advertising industries and the community.  Thanks for your participation.

Debra Nelson is a veteran talent with over 25 years of experience on camera, on stage and in the recording studio.  Publix, Coca Cola, IBM, the Georgia Lottery, Mayfield Ice Cream, Ford Motor Company, AT&T and Nationwide Insurance are just a few of the companies that make hers the voice of choice for their commercials. In addition to commercials, she lends her voice to narration projects, promos, prompts and books on tape.

PRIVATE VOICE-OVER INSTRUCTION 

With Della Cole

Can’t do a class or prefer to work individually?

Della coaches privately for VO whether it’s  coaching to learn the technique of delivery or creating your own personal demo. Coaching for VO training is $60 an hour. Coaching and recording your demo is $75/hour plus a one time fee of $100 for the audio engineer to mix the tracks with sound effects and music.  The time needed varies depending on the student’s ability and motivation.

We get a lot of referrals and inquiries from agents about children and teens for voice-over demos.  This can be a great thing for them to add to their resume’.  It’s not easy, but it can be a lot of fun.

If you are interested in booking time for voice-over instruction with Della, call 11:30a – 3:30p Mon – Thurs.  404-499-9996.
