One-Day Workshop: Saturday, November 11th (10:00am - 2:00pm)
Your Commercial Introduction.
Actors will participate in a concentrated, low pressure introduction to the Commercial world. Courtney will take performers through various commercial audition scenarios, watch footage and provide constructive feedback. Kenneth will provide general and individualized information covering the following topics: photos & archetypes, the nature of an agent-client relationship, how the commercial business differs from TV/Film/Theatre businesses, submissions to agents and agent meetings. The session will end with a Q&A. Once completed, the performer will leave with an honest understanding of our industry as well as the information necessary to begin navigating a professional career.
