Advanced Commercial Acting & Auditioning Workshop: Taking What You Have Learned To The Next Level
Please Note: This Workshop is ONLY for students who have completed the Complete On-Camera Commercial Acting & Auditioning Workshop.
TIME FOR THE REAL DEAL: In this 5-week Advanced Workshop, we will take the newfound skills and lessons you acquired in our Complete On-Camera Commercial Acting & Auditioning Workshop and directly apply them until you no longer have to think about them logically, but embrace them organically. You will learn how to work with other actors in both group scenes and one-on-one, as well as explore both comedic and naturalistic copy, interpreting and taking direction from different clients and directors, navigating a highly choreographed audition (i.e. hitting your marks, reading your copy, dealing with props, interacting with other actors –all at the same time while maintaining the flow!) as well as exploring scenes without any dialogue at all. In addition, we will also recreate different auditioning scenarios and settings to challenge yourself further and get a feel for what it’s like to audition in the real-world!
PRACTICE & EXPERIENCE: It’s one thing to understand the tools you have learned, it’s another to apply them naturally. This requires practice and experience. Like learning to play guitar, one starts out by physically placing each finger on each string to eventually create a chord. Over time and with committed practice, your fingers start to find their own way to those appropriate strings; each chord becomes easier until, at last, making those chords becomes second nature and, ultimately, those chords are turned into music.
That’s when the real FUN begins!
With all this under your belt, you will be more than prepared to show casting directors, directors and clients what it is you truly have to offer and why you are uniquely qualified for the roles you are auditioning for.
You will also be included in my monthly Newsletter to casting directors and agents showcasing the current headshots and professional contact info for all my students, as well as select video highlights showcasing you at your best!
