Auditioning for TV Commercials

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/YCCmPmUr)


This one-day Intensive will improve your skills at auditioning for TV Commercials.  Yes, YOU WILL DO AN AUDITION. And you will discuss the outcomes and THEN HAVE ANOTHER TRY.  It's not like a standard audition workshop where there is no opportunity to make amends.  In fact, you will do two auditions.

After every round of auditions there will be a discussion/analysis session and then every actor will get a second go.  There will be one round in the morning session and another in the afternoon.  You get FOUR AUDITIONS in one-day working with two different audition formats.

During the briefing sessions after each audition you will get practical hands-on advice from the Casting Director's point of view and a Director's assessment from Richard Sarell.  You will explore a variety of options that are then tested out.

The Rehearsal Room

Vendor since 2017

The Rehearsal Room is run by TV Director Richard Sarell who directed television drama for more than 25 years. During that time, he evolved an approach to acting that trains actors in techniques that enable them to compete and survive in the modern world of screen performance.

The techniques are based on simple principles that quickly produce professional results.  They enable the actor to create complex real characters that are perfect for the screen but are also relevant for the stage.  These classes enable actors to make choices that drive the character's interactions in a way that generates a compelling dramatic performance.  The actors skill is to engage an audience because they feel they are watching a real life interaction.  These classes provide the tools to deliver those outcomes.

Richard has been conducting workshops for professional actors in Australia and New Zealand for two decades, working with institutions such as the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS), Australian Screen Directors Association (ASDA), National Theatre Drama School, Federation University and the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).

09 July 2019 • Auditioning for TV Commercials

As a complete novice I learnt much about being behind the camera. The main focus was to have fun and relax. I fully recommend this course to anyone who is in the industry or is wanting to get involved in the industry. It's a great day and you get to meet new people which is always good for networking and getting your name out there. I would like to thank both Richard and Biffy for their insight and patience. Not to mention their experience. Stephen Bray

This was a wonderful workshop. We did lot's of improvisation exercises and got the opportunity to do a few takes until we "got" it. We had lot's of positive feed back and had the opportunity to ask Questions. The atmosphere was positive and supportive. It was great to have Biffy and Richard give us their professional advice and feedback. Lot's of encouragement and good vibes so we could all enjoy the learning. I would highly recommend any future workshops that the Rehearsal Room offers.
