Re Post from the Stockton Record
After auditioning more than 300 people during the Lodi Grape Festival, Lodi-based Clark Pest Control has selected a 9-year-old Stockton student as the Northern California finalist in its search for the star of next season's statewide television advertising campaign.
David Frame, 9, is a student at River Oaks Charter School.
While he enjoys playing sports, his father says David really is an aspiring actor who loves drama and making up plays with his older sister.
While the judges auditioned many talented people of all ages, the panel agreed that David's audition tape showed a unique quality the company is looking for in its campaigns. Clark Pest Control has historically used humor in its commercials to illustrate the many problems its customers are encountering and the services it provides to counteract those issues.
Auditions were also held in Paso Robles and Reno, and a finalist was selected from each of those auditions as well.
The finalists from these auditions are married couple Edward and Nancy Martinaitis of Paso Robles and 9-year-old Mariah Glassgow from Marysville.
All the auditions, including David's and the other finalists', can be seen at www.clarkpest.com.
Judges are working with the company's advertising agency to determine which of the finalists is best suited for the 2010 campaign. The grand prize winner will be announced by the end of November.
