Overview

The Ultimate Commercial Book For Kids and Teens: The Young Actors' Commercial Study-guide! provides 6-18 year-olds with true-to-life comedic and dramatic commercials, all 100% tested by working young actors. It is packed with detailed descriptions of how to increase the impact of your presentation, whether preparing for a professional commercial audition or a class assignment. This includes step-by-step training techniques, preparation, and materials such as resumes, photos and classes. +150 original commercials are included for practice. Interviews with six Hollywood 101 insiders, all currently working industry experts provide tips on making your presentation stellar. Also includes Stevens' list of Presentation Do's and Don'ts, example agent query letter, a glossary of industry terms, and info. on where to get work permits. This book is meant for all young performers and their parent/guardians who are searching to improve presentation/commercial audition skills and success rates. Commercials are great for classroom, variety talent shows, competitions, and ultimately, auditions.

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.

    Should be required

    I had trouble breaking into the commercial business for a long time, I wasn't getting auditions and when I did I didn't get any call-backs. So I needed a guide or a better strategy and I needed good material to practice with. I stumbled through plenty of books and never found material that suited me. That's when I came across this book in my local Barnes and Noble. I picked it up and I was skeptical of first, past experiences with these kind of books made me leary. This book is far and away the best book I found in my search. I have since booked four commercials including Coke,Nintendo, Chevy and Home Depot spots. I can definately say with this book and alot of practice I significantly improved my career. I hope you can too!

    A must for the young aspiring actor or public speaker!

    Another great book in Stevens' series for teens. My daughter found 'Sensational Scenes for Kids' very helpful in her speech class. Her teacher kept a copy in the classroom. Students found the scenes fun to learn, with timely topics, and language they could relate to. 'Ultimate Commercials' will be a useful tool for aspiring actors or teens working on public speaking.

    Most Helpful Commercial Book I've Found

    I recently moved to Los Angeles from Atlanta to pursue acting. Someone I met in acting class suggested this book and it's really helped me to hone my commercial skills. I just got my first commercial call back!
