Auditioning for Commercials w/Casting Director, Angela Mickey
Are you ready for that commercial audition?!
**You must RSVP in advance to participate in this monthly workshop. The deadline to RSVP is Sep. 10th!
In this monthly workshop, Angela Mickey of Liz Lewis Casting will do a Q&A and talk about some of the fundamentals of commercials, who the main players are, and how auditioning for them is different than auditioning for film, tv, and theater.
Monthly workshops are available to Studio Members at ActorPlaybook, in addition to bi-weekly training and a monthly improv class!
Actors will bring a piece of commercial copy of their choice to present, with Angela offering direction and tips to approaching the copy in different ways and getting comfortable on camera.
Note: There are commercial sides located in the Sides Database for members on the site or you can click here to view additional copy.
