Kelly founded Kimball Studio in 1994; Janine started training at the studio in 1996. DiTullio and Kimball went on to work as writing partners creating pilots and producing series for NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, WB, and UPN. Throughout this time they stayed committed to fostering the community at Kimball Studio. When Kelly saw the ins and outs of television, it became clear to her how acting and auditioning for TV and film could be vastly improved. At the same time, Janine was seeing how communities of comedians and writers were stronger than the individual. Together they drew from their insider knowledge and their core values to develop a curriculum of training, practice and attitude that helps performers and writers thrive in the real world.
