Given their nature and upbeat energy, commercials tend to be a fun experience for child and teen actors. Especially if you’re just starting out, they can be a useful outlet providing great exposure.
In this Commercials & Voice Overs workshop, along with special Casting Director guest Angela Mickey, we explore the elements that lead to success in the commercial and V.O. world. The attitude, the energy, the timing, the ability to transfer the enthusiasm through the camera or the microphone.
Believe in the product you’re selling, before convincing others! Master the cold read, identify key buzzwords in a commercial script, manipulate and empower your voice, and get comfortable working around recording equipment.
