Book That Commercial Fourth Wall Workshop

"Book that Commercial!"

Commercials are the bread and butter of many in our industry! They are not to be scoffed at, and are how many actors get their foot in the door. Auditions are competitive, and roles still require decent acting ability. You need to know what you’re doing if you’re fortunate enough to get called in!
This session will walk you through what happens in a typical TVC audition, with room to experiment and play in a small group setting.
  • General overview of business side          

  • Slating/ID to camera           

  • Improvised scenarios

  • Recorded audition session with personalised feedback

  • Q&A session

Fee: $ 150.00 + GST

Whether you are completely new to this field, returning after a hiatus, or auditioning but not BOOKING - you will find this workshop useful.

Testimonials

“I loved how the workshop was super hands on and we got heaps of feedback and then were able to build on it and keep going until we nailed it. You made me feel super comfortable and I loved how I got to explore different sides to my acting with different themes/tones etc. I also loved how it was a nice small group so it was super practical.
Thanks heaps for letting me be a part of it! I’ll definitely look out for more in the future.”

“The workshop was very helpful as I wasn’t sure if what I did in auditions was right, so it gave me some confirmation and more confidence in that area.
It was also lots of fun! :)”
-  Aria G -
“After watching my clips I totally see what you mean about regularly taping stuff. (Seems like I do lots of things without even realising!)
Very useful - thanks! I appreciated how the workshop gave us an opportunity to work in front of a camera.”

Testimonials

“The actors’ gym was a great experience. It was fun and interactive, while still being super helpful with the acting craft. By having smaller groups it made each session like a mini intensive, as feedback was individualised rather than dispersed.”
- Ash R-
“The actor’s gym gave me the chance to perform (and even write  my own) monologues in an intimate and safe environment. Soon after, I booked a speaking role in a feature film - something I could never have done if I had not done the gym.”
- Linda R-
“I found the environment really supportive, and got some great feedback on what I need to consider to improve my performances.  Would really recommend attending this workshop, even if you have been in the business for a while… it's always good to practise!”
- Clare F-
“The sessions of the Actors’ Gym I attended were very valuable, as I could add the recordings of my dramatic and comedic scenes to my online portfolio. This means I have something to share with folks potentially interested in auditioning me. I liked that there were people I could connect with, who gave me tips on how I could improve the next tape. Whilst I felt nervous the first time, knowing the format helped me the second time, and I could just relax and focus on delivering my best performance.”
