"SHOW BIZ KIDZ: HOW TO"
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2013
(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 14 years. Her "kid" 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 23+ years as a Casting Director. Donise has
cast many feature films and industrials, but has always concentrated on
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") and has an incredible amount of information to
offer you; the type of inside 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 in downtown Austin on Saturday,
Nov. 2, 2013, from 10AM until 1PM and is open to all interested parents
and/or guardians and/or your older teens who need to understand the business
side of "Show Business". You will walk away both knowledgeable and
confident. Don't waste any more time or money doing things the wrong way!
This Seminar is strictly for parents and/or guardians and/or older teens
accompanied by a parent. You are welcome to bring a recent headshot (or
photo) and resume of your child.
