Actors are often asked to read cold in both auditions and in your preliminary meeting with an agent. Of course as actors we always want to do the best we can in the room and that’s why its imperative for actors to sharpen their cold read skills. Learn how to quickly pick up text with no time to prepare, break down the script and bring your best self to the audition room despite your lack of time with the material. Every week, students will be presented with new material based on a weekly theme. We will cover Commercial cold reads, TV, Film, Monologues and Voiceover. Little factoid: commercials are always cold reads! Actors will NEVER receive the copy in advance to prepare!

We will also work on naturalistic reads for commercials, and radio spots. Class culminates with a performance in the studio for a top VO Casting Director and two actively scouting VO Agents!

Commercial acting is harder than it looks! You never get the copy in advance so it’s almost always a COLD READ AUDITION! Young actors will learn how to nail cold read commercial auditions. Budding thespians will learn how to quickly analyze commercial copy and find the acting beats within the text to make a lasting impression on both casting directors and on ad agency executives! Improvisation also plays a crucial role in commercial auditions. Actors will learn to identify comedic clues within the text as well as physical techniques that allow them to deliver material in a way that will set them apart in their auditions. Sharpen your improv skills and learn how to incorporate them into your performance. The 5-week program culminates with a Final Showcase for friends, family as well as Talent Reps in which students have an opportunity to showcase their talent. The class is geared toward young actors who are serious about their work. A considerable amount of memorization and homework will be required.
