COMMERCIAL CASTING MAPSTERCLASS
With John Askew
This unique workshop is designed to demystify the process of
Commercial Casting, practically prepare actors for these meetings,
and provide insider knowledge on how to maximise your chances
in these auditions.
Actors usually find commercial castings difficult, overwhelming and
impersonal. These auditions are often brief, provide the actor with
little information about what is expected of them, and can feel like a
cattle call. Under these circumstances it is common for actors to
feel stifled and unable to apply their skills and training.
Through better understanding and a mock casting session, students will leave this workshop armed with a complete toolkit, giving them the confidence and skills necessary to maximise their chances, and an understanding of the actors role within the commercial casting process.
In addition to the practical casting session, students will receive personal feedback, and learn the insider hints and tips to best their chances of booking the job and being repeatedly called in by the top Commercial Casting Directors.
They will know exactly what to expect, exactly how to prepare, and exactly what to do in the audition room.
