Hi! We're so glad you found us.

We're moms too, and sitting on floors, hanging out in hot rooms, and dealing with rude staff wasn't working for us. Therefore, we created THE FOUR SEASONS OF KID WORKSHOPS so you and your kid can excel, make connections, AND be treated to a little comfort and TLC while you’re at it.

Our Mission

To empower parents and children with knowledge about the business of film & TV. To connect child actors with top industry professionals. And most importantly, to respect, honor and encourage the spirit of the talented child.

Camille

Thornton-Alson

(Co-Owner of SPEAK L.A. - “Hollywood’s #1 Resource for Actors”)

Hi! I’m Camille! I’ve always loved acting and because of that I studied all over the world. I trained in London. I took acting classes in Paris from the best teachers and I went to Conservatory Grad School in Washington and got my MFA in Theatre. Now I teach acting at Santa Barbara College where I get to work with young people who are as passionate about this business as I am. Witnessing a child actor realize that achieving their goals might actually be possible is one of my greatest life joys. I can’t wait to work with your talented kid!

Camille has an incredible ability to bridge the gap between the LA Film & TV Industry for the new actor. She is deeply knowledgeable, but more importantly, she is encouraging and kind to the end.

Julia Barnett

(Teacher, Actress, Writer, Director, Based in Austin, Texas)

Hi! I'm Julia. I've been acting since I was 10 years old (Law&Order, Lipstick Jungle, 30Rock, Nashville). I've been teaching children for the past 25 years, it is my passion to help mentor and see their dreams come true! I also have two children who love acting and work in the business. So, I understand the challenges that parents of child-actors face. I'm excited to bring industry leaders and help connect them with your talented kids.

Julia is an excellent children’s coach, mentor, and teacher. She’s worked with many of my clients and helped them improve their on-camera acting skills and book jobs!

Jen Jostyn

(Co-Owner of SPEAK L.A. - Hollywood's #1 Resource for Actors)

Hi! I’m Jen. I have worked for 20 years as a professional actor (The Brothers McMullen, Deep Impact, ER, Nashville, etc.) but my passion is working with talented up-and-coming kid actors. I have two of my own and I know that as parents, we want nothing but the best for our babies. When our children dream of a career in a business that is foreign to us - that’s a little scary. I’m here to demystify the scary and fill you and your kid with know-how and confidence so that they can achieve that big dream of theirs.

Jen has this magical way of working with kids that is honest, direct, and incredibly kind. Any child who is lucky enough to learn from her vast experience will definitely have a leg up in this business.
