Meet The Playroom’s acting coach Adam Jennings!


 
Adam Jennings was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and began performing on stage and television before the age of ten. Following a run of exciting and diverse roles in musicals and plays for Burlingame High School and other community productions, Adam studied as a Theatre major at CSU Northridge. His professional acting career officially started in Los Angeles in 2004, and after an obscure audition one year later, he booked a unique job as a motion capture performer which has led to more than five years of steady work as the “face” of video game development company Neversoft Entertainment.Adam’s facial expressions and lip-synching talents bring to life every speaking and singing character in some of the most recent TONY HAWK skateboarding games, the western epic GUN, and each title in the GUITAR HERO franchise since LEGENDS OF ROCK. He has recorded movements for several thousand lines of dialogue, over 500 songs, and in 7 different languages, including German, French, Italian, and Native American Apache. Additionally, Adam helped guide Steven Tyler through facial motion capture
sessions so they could share the virtual stage in GUITAR HERO: AEROSMITH. Some other celebrity collaborations include Metallica, Sting, Van Halen, and Taylor Swift. He also created alien characters for the big screen in Disney’s MARS NEEDS MOMS, a movie produced by Robert Zemeckis which is set to release in 2011.
Credits outside of mo-cap include TV shows SAMANTHA WHO? and SO NOTORIOUS, and short films CONVINCING BENNY and DHARINI. And recently, Adam finished shooting the first season of MURDER SQUAD, the smash-hit comedy webseries about a federal crime office in which he plays a leading role. All six episodes can be found at http://www.murdersquad.net – Pow!Currently studying improvisation with an award-winning director from Second City, Adam is excited to bring his experience and love for the arts to students at the Playroom Academy.
