Commercial acting is harder than it looks! You never get the copy in advance so it’s almost always a COLD READ AUDITION! And, oftentimes, the casting director will ask you to IMPROV the material and put it into your own words!

Focus of Class:
• Students will learn how to nail cold read commercial auditions and how to improv for the camera
• 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
• Learn to identify 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

Final Showcase: The final class will feature a showcase for family, friends, and scouting Talent Reps!

Sign up for one class, a few, or all 12! Register as late as the morning of the class!
