Disney Promos - DIGITAL CLINIC - Friday, August 30th | 1pm
Being in the presence of an industry professional does not guarantee employment, as the clinics are for educational purposes only.
Kerri Anne Lavin & Ryan Clark
Writer/Producers Disney Promos
Kerri-Anne Lavin is a development executive at Disney Channels worldwide. She writes, directs, and produces short-form content for the Multiplatform team. Before moving to development she was a writer/producer of promos for Disney XD. She was a writer/producer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. An alumna of Carnegie Mellon, NYU, and The Second City Main Stage, Kerri-Anne has written for several shows both live and on the television. You can also see her on the television in many shows and commercials. She currently stars as Luke Skywalker in her living room playing opposite her four-year-old son, Darth Vader. It is her favorite role to date.
Ryan Clark started out acting at the age of 8 in a commercial (that nobody saw) for Shaq energy bars…Yum!! Through high school, college and in his 8 years living in Los Angeles, Ryan has continued acting in various commercials and television shows and currently performs regularly at the UCB theatre. Right now, he works full time as a writer and producer for Disney Channel Creative Marketing. What does that mean?? That’s something that he asks himself on a daily basis… but essentially that means he makes a lot of the promos across Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior as well as material specific for those channel’s YouTube and social media pages. Included in this, is casting and directing voice-over talent for these pieces. He loves meeting new people, the movie The Burbs, and especially his baby Coco.

Our Digital Clinics are designed to help fine tune performance & self direction when recording from home! Participants will be emailed promo copy, record their reads from home, and upload their MP3 to a password protected site where our guest instructor will listen and provide audio feedback on their read! Participants will then upload a 2nd read with the notes in mind, and will receive written feedback about the adjustments. Reads will be due on August 30th at 1pm.
