LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Hollywood Group's members Joshua Reed, Angelina Bryan and Marcus Scribner, each had the opportunity to recently participate as actors in a public service announcement for Barack Obama. The young actors were cast in the PSA for the presidential hopeful after Sterling Studio owner, Constance Tillotson, received a call from the producer looking for kids to play the acting roles of John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama as youngsters. Constance Tillotson sits on the committee at the SAG Conservatory serving as Director of the Youth Division. She is the CEO of CTManagement, which manages a select clientele of young, extraordinary actors. She also has a very close working relationship with The Hollywood Group.
"The producer of this project was referred to me by a board member at SAG," explains Tillotson. "The producer hired Marcus and Angelina without an audition as she trusted all kids had craft coming from my studio. When The Hollywood Group (http://www.hollywoodgroup.com) recommended Joshua for the part of John McCain, I called his mother. I felt her son had enough experience in auditions that he could take direction on set. Since he was able to work with actors who are so well trained, he was able to follow their lead and did a tremendous job along with the others."
The parents played a pivotal role. They were quick to respond and very grateful for the opportunity. This is a great example of why continuous study and making connections really pays off in the entertainment business.
The Hollywood Group's actors (http://www.hollywood-group.blogspot.com) have worked hard to hone their natural acting abilities by attending acting workshops, including those offered by Sterling Studio, geared towards auditioning and booking acting jobs. They have been afforded opportunities to build a portfolio of experience by working on sets and they have auditioning and work opportunities such as this Barack Obama Public Service Announcement (http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID =66359567).
