When she goes on auditions, Kaitlyn uses everything you taught her in the workshop. She went on her second audition two days after completing your workshop and booked the job. She feels she booked the commercial because of the guidance you gave her. Her “back to school” commercial for Target starts airing next week. In fact two of your students are in that spot!

Advanced On-Camera Audition Workshop for Children

Audition Techniques for Film, TV and Advanced Commercial Copy

Prerequisite: Our 4-week Commercial Workshop.

This 4-week class, for ages 8-16, 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.


  • Tools to help your child go into each audition with confidence.
  • Script Analysis.
  • Camera technique: Working in close-up and getting your eyes off the page. Seamlessly handling the sides at an audition.
  • Putting personality in the scene and bringing the character to life.
  • Finding the humor in the scene.
  • Finding the important event in the scene.
  • Creating a connection with the casting person at the audition.
  • Students work a minimum of three times on-camera each Sunday.
  • 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 hand-picked to expand each actor’s range.
