"DON Of Chicago"

Hello Everyone!

My name is Don Kress. My friends call me, "DON Of Chicago". I have studied business and psychology and have been successful in my own advertising agency. I have worked as an extra actor in several feature film productions, where I was told that I had a great on camera presence and that I should consider becoming a film actor. I have since been totally committed to honing my craft as an actor and have taken many acting classes. I recently joined a group of actors and have become an integral part of the Chicago Motion Picture Studios. I am constantly seeking new film and TV projects, and frequently get casted. I also enjoy working as an executive producer for Get Lucky Productions, and currently helping produce a feature film and several TV pilots. I recently participated as a contestant on Who Wants To Be A TV Producer, where my videos, "Fitness With Fedora" and "Santa Is A Wiseguy" won first and second place. I think myself as a very creative, funny, and talented personality. I enjoy the art of improvisation, and some day soon, hope to be working on the screen as a leading actor.
My photo and resume are attached for your consideration. My IMDB and INDIE web sites are listed below, should you need to see additional photos/head shots of me. Thank you.

An On Camera Personality
by: Mary DeNicolo

Don Kress has a true inimitable style. He can keep the audience's attention throughout his performance. As an on camera personality, Don keeps the show moving in a lively and infinitely enjoyable manner.

I have had the pleasure of working with Don, and I could honestly say that from scripting to on camera, "The DON" is a true talent.

Watch for The DON on the "Big Screen"
by: Kathy Levin

I have had the pleasure of working with Don in several projects. He is very creative and passionate about being the best actor that he could be. He works very hard and always gives 100% to his director, fellow actors, and crew.
