"Show Biz Kids: How To" Seminar from casting director Donise Hardy, Downtown Austin, July 14th 2012
“SHOW BIZ KIDS: HOW TO”
SATURDAY, JULY 14, 2012
10AM - 1PM
Parents, come join us for the best three hours you'll ever invest in your child's career. Los Angeles/Texas Casting Director, Donise L. Hardy, CSA, founder and owner of "A CASTING PLACE", is presenting a seminar especially for you. Donise has been a leader in casting TV commercials in the State of Texas for the past 13 years. Her credits include: KIDZBOP, DISNEYLAND, PBS KIDS, McDONALD'S, SEA WORLD, OSCAR MAYER, WAL*MART, ETCH-A-SKETCH, BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA, SEARS BACK TO SCHOOL, CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF AUSTIN, TOYS "R" US, CICI'S PIZZA, P.G.A.: FIRST TEE, AMERICAN RED CROSS, TEXAS TOURISM, H-E-B, BETTY SPAGHETTY, TYSON CHICKEN, CARINO'S, PARKLAND HOSPITAL: KIDS FIRST and TX DOT plus hundreds of other commercials during her total of 21+ years as a Casting Director. Donise has cast many feature films, TV shows and industrials, but has always concentrated on commercials. www.acastingplace.net
Regardless if your child is just starting out or already has a strong resume, it is essential that every parent be aware of their responsibilities associated with a child working in this industry.
When a talent agent in San Francisco, Donise discovered ROSS MALINGER ("Sleepless in Seattle" and "Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher") and TARAN NOAH SMITH ("Home Improvement"). She has an incredible amount of information to offer you; the type of insider information that only a Casting Director of her vast experience would have. You don't know what you don't know!
The seminar will cover the right way to get your child involved: getting and keeping an agent; work permits; State of Texas laws regarding minors on a set; avoiding scams; how to prepare a resume; headshots; training; not spending an unnecessary amount of hard-earned money; safety and so much more. Avoid the pitfalls and create some fun memories (not to mention the possibility of college tuition) for your child.
The seminar will be held at State Theatre (8th and Congress) in downtown Austin on Saturday, July 14th, from 10AM until 1PM and is a must for any parent with a child in the industry or entering it. The seminar is open to all interested parents and/or guardians. You will walk away both savvy and confident. Don't waste any more time or money doing things the wrong way! Quit believing the hype and come learn the truth! This fun, entertaining and informative seminar is for parents and/or guardians only, but you are welcome to bring a recent headshot (or photo) and resume of your child.
