About Me

I am on Face Book under Yolanda D. Zellous,Star Size Studios,Zellyo Productions,Big Boned Women casting and productions.
FYI: I am currently casting models for Kevin Hart Tour this year which is about to wrap up soon. I am excited cause I am meeting alot of models from all over the US.
God has truly been good to me this year and I stay prayed up.

Now more about me:

I am a what you would call a true Jill of All Trades. I wear many hats in Atlanta Ga.
I produce and teach monthly plus size runway/acting workshop.
All sizes are welcome and I mean this. I love everybody but plus size have a special place in my heart.

All plus/curvy size female and Big Handsome male models/actors are welcome aswell an children to attend. We do it every month in Atlanta and I tour different cities by request.
I teach private one on one session also. (Call for prices) Hourly or Bi-Weekly or Weekly.
  No experience is necessary to attend this original and exciting workshop.  The workshop will be hosted by Yolanda Zellous, Owner and CEO of Zellyo Productions, an Atlanta based media, film, and casting company, along with one of the hottest runway instructors in the Southeast, Edwina Hill and Valaria Ra Ra Smith.

Yolanda Zellous is also an acting coach, casting director author, playwright, and actress.  Her annual fashion show held in Atlanta continues to bring attention to the plus sized woman and man.  Yolanda’s mission is much more than to promote fashion shows.  Her mission is to “empower the lives of others.”  Yolanda views her mission as an opportunity and a ministry whereas she can set new standards within the fashion arena.  One of her future goals is to initiate educational components for spirituality, wellness and career initiatives for youths and adults through positive awareness and resources. 

Our mission for this workshop is to take ordinary people with undiscovered talent and teach them the fundamental tools necessary to be successful in the entertainment industry.  Our vision is to broaden the public view of what is considered as an acceptable public image as well as uplift and educate individuals who are often times not visually displayed nor visually represented in the world of fashion.  Our aim is to empower individuals to embrace their beauty that not only lies within but also their outer beauty.

So many times, curvy women are overlooked in the modeling/ acting industry because of their size, which causes them to shy away from something that they love.
This mega shoot was set up to give this group of women the opportunity to experience a photo shoot that will be catered specifically to give them the tools that they will need to begin their modeling careers.

I am here to change this.

I am looking for a glam team looking to build portfolio with plus size women (TFP)

Next shoot is April 28th We need mua/stylist/hairstylist.



Biography of a God Fearing Favored Wife,Mother,Plus Model,Actress and Film maker Mrs Yolanda Zellous

Capturing the attention of an audience is an easy accomplishment, but holding their attention is indeed a different skill. With an empowering presence and a knack for connecting to her audience, Yolanda Zellous has been capturing and holding the attention of audiences for quite some time now. A native of Peoria, Illinois and most recently a resident of Lithonia, Georgia. Zellous has been crafting her talents of singing, acting, and dancing, since she was bit by the performance bug while a student in high school. Through participation in annual talent shows and her first big solo where she entranced her audience through her rendition of "The Black National Anthem," Zellous found her passion, her first love, and her true calling. As the years have progressed, Zellous has gone on to study under the accomplished teachings Bill Dukes at American Black Film Festivals for two years and Nick Conti and Michael Cole of the Professional Actors Studio in Atlanta, Georgia, and classes at the Robert Townsend Studios P.A.N.(Premier Actors Network) Through these studies she has gone on to evolve into a well rounded actress and performer which has allowed her to naturally take on a number of theater and film roles. With theater credits that include: "Conversations in the Loo”, “Survivor”, “Under the Hood, In the Hood.”, “Love Costs (Will You Pay the Price)”, and “Church Folks," Yolanda Zellous has proven her talent for performing live onstage. Looking to solidify herself as an accomplished theater actress before moving on to the world of film, Zellous has been careful to take on roles that she knows can be rightfully reflected in her skills of acting.

"Acting is magic when it's done right," claims the mother of three and devoted wife. "Bringing a character to life to the point where people leave with the impression that you are that person is acting at it's best. Every time I take on a role, I am dedicated to accomplishing acting at it's best."

With her goal of having a strong presence in the theater portion of acting almost accomplished, Zellous has recently taken steps to advance into the ever growing world of film. Holding film experience through her roles in Blockbuster hits like “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” “Madea's Family Reunion", “A Message from Pops”, “True Divas”, “A Cigarette Moment”, “Promise Me This,” “The Gospel”, “Shackles”, along with a coveted role in the film “Dirty Laundry," Zellous is well on her way to becoming an acting force to be reckoned with.

In addition to being a gifted entertainer Zellous also holds a strong interest in production and other entertainment related facets. Her interest in production has lead her to the creation of her own production company entitled Zellyo Productions and a role as associate producer of A-Town East, which is a local soap opera on Comcast cable. With Zellyo Productions dedicated to telling significant everyday stories, making dreams come true, and supporting fellow talented actors and actresses, there is no question as to where Zellous’ true dedication lies. Never one to turn down opportunities to learn and help others Zellous has also moved on to hold other titles that include author, casting director, director, film maker, playwright, motivational speaker, adult and youth mentor, and fashion show producer of annual Big Boned women fashion shows which coincides with her first full fledge documentary entitled "Big Boned Women." With the documentary, which chronicles the life of the average "thick woman," receiving rave reviews from some of today's leading forces in the entertainment industry,it should be no time before the world knows Yolanda Zellous and her ventures.
