The market for young actors in Hollywood is in constant flux, following the trends set by kids/tweens and teens themselves. One thing the industry is always in need of is a new face and a new voice to express these every changing, ever similar ideals of youth. Kids and teens that have studied their craft for years and those that are fresh to the industry constantly have new opportunities to break into acting in a big way. Interviews such as those included in this book, really bring into stark light the ever-growing need for young actors with rock solid basics. Well-developed preparation techniques, consistent practice and original material all lead novice and professional young actors to winning performances on commercial auditions and in any public speaking forum. Only focused commercial study along with an understanding of basic presentation skills can bring an actor the confidence to perform well along with the all-important call-back. The Ultimate Commercial Book for Kids and Teens: The Young Actors' Commercial Study-Guide! is filled with original commercials to which kids and teens can relate with truth. Truth in acting is the essence of a great performance. The commercials written by Chambers Stevens are completely in-tune with the "space" kids and teens occupy today. These commercials, used as a study-guide, will prepare young actors for significant commercial auditions in both comedy and drama, as well as oral language presentations of any sort. As a publisher of quality material for young performers, we couldn't be more pleased to present this title as the sixth in our Hollywood 101 series.
