The Commercial Workshop was designed to allow the actor to work with a top commercial Casting Director and working commercial actor in an intimate setting. Workshop participants will learn the ins and outs of commercial auditioning and acting, and how the wild world of commercials specifically differs from TV/Film. This experience will focus on understanding the business of commercials, timing and energy of commercial acting, learning how you can incorporate improv into your commercial auditions, and much more.

Terence Lee has been a working commercial actor for years and has been featured in multiple ads (Apple Inc, Lipton Hard Ice Tea, McAlister’s Deli, Best Buy, Wegman’s, GA Lottery, and Juno Financial.) He will be working with participants for the first two hours of the workshop, walking through mock commercial scripts with individual students. Terence will review different methods of how to approach your audition with strong choices, to make your audition as fun and truthful to you as possible.

During the second half of the workshop, actors will perform their commercial script in person for a commercial casting director. The pro will provide feedback and direction on how to improve your audition from the perspective of what it takes to book the job. PRO ANNOUNCED: Kimberly Thomas, Big Picture Casting!!
