little I knew and how much I was doing wrong. Probably was only getting 10%

"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 and
industrials, but has always concentrated on commercials.
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 and, for the first time ever, your
teens who are at least 13 years old. (The fee is $35 and no teens may
attend without an adult. This is NOT an opportunity to audition, just
attend.) 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 (and teens old enough to learn about the business
side of "Show Business"), and you are welcome to bring a recent headshot (or
photo) and resume of your child.
