Adult Advanced Audition Workshop:

Audition Techniques for Film, TV and Advanced Commercial Copy

This 4-week workshop teaches audition techniques for features, episodic TV and, yes, commercials. Why include commercials? Many ads these days are shot to seem like a scene from an indie film, feature, movie trailer or sit-com. Audition techniques for these spots are very similar to techniques used in auditions for features or TV. 


    • Camera technique: Working in close-up; getting your eyes off the page. Seamlessly handling the sides at an audition.
    • Script Analysis.
    • Launching your audition by developing a strong moment-before.
    • Finding the humor in the scene.
    • Integrating your personality into every role.
    • Finding the important event in the scene.
    • Creating a connection with the casting person at the audition.
    • Students work a minimum of three times a night on-camera.
    • TV & Film auditions are one-on-one with the casting director. So, all theatrical material in the class will be solo pieces. The commercial copy will be challenging and cover a variety of formats.
    • All material is carefully selected to expand each actor’s range.
    • An Industry Guest will attend the last class.  The format will depend on the guest.  This is not a showcase.
