    Casting Director Workshops $425.00 Add to cart

    Course Description:


    This is a deep dive into all areas of commercial auditions with quick insight given into tools,  processes and mindsets that actually nail auditions right now and can set you up to be the  one who books in today’s rapidly and constantly changing world of commercial auditions, both those in person and more importantly than ever now, post-2020, those done through the  new paradigm of self-tapes.

    Vicki’s hands-on class attacks every current need of both the casting director and her  advertising clients, stripping away outdated layers of “commercial acting” formulas in which actors get stuck and focusing on that which authentically brings out your believability,  personality and flexibility of performance, essentials in today’s fast-paced, unpredictable and  if done correctly, very fun, casting environment.

    Class material is pulled from Vicki’s thousands of casting sessions to date. Class outlines are subject to change, just like commercial auditions!
