Commercial Acting I is an eight-week commercial acting intensive that teaches you valuable skills about how to use commercials as opportunities to further your mastery of the craft and make money as a professional. We take scripts from recent commercial acting auditions and work with students using a similar process to other acting work, but show them how to make adjustments for this type of on-camera work.

The commercial acting class, which meets once a week for eight weeks, will show you how to slate perfectly, how to recognize the various formulas that are used for commercial scripts, and how to analyze the text to discover clues about what the commercial team is looking for. All of the work takes place on-camera using scripts from commercial auditions that are happening right now. Students also learn how to take notes from a director and make spontaneous adjustments in a commercial audition. A professional actor serious about establishing a career can use acting for tv commercials as a springboard to gain experience and build a resume in television acting. The pace of TV, and specifically commercials, is entirely different from film and theater work. Versatile actors are those who have experience in all of these mediums. The best commercial acting class teaches you all that you need to know about these high-paying acting jobs and how to book them.

Commercials are the working actor’s bread and butter. SAG/AFTRA, the actors union, published numbers that said commercial income is comparable to the earning of film & television combined. Many actors naively turn their nose at commercial work, finding it demeaning, or beneath their artistic sensibility. This is absurd. Earning $10,000 for a day’s work is worth it. And, you will gain valuable experience in collaboration, improvisation, on-set protocol, and relationship building and networking.

Commercial Acting 1 at Maggie Flanigan Studio is taught by commercial veteran Bill Coelius, who has extensive experience acting in over 50 national commercials. He has auditioned and worked professionally as an actor for more than twenty years. Bill shares his carefully crafted game plan that will help you book and shoot that national commercial while still focusing on the craft. The serious actor is always prepared, from the moment they walk through the door to when they leave set for the day. During a commercial shoot, what are the expectations? In acting classes for commercials, students learn why this form of acting demands the same level of excellence, mastery of techniques, and professionalism. A lot must be expressed in a short time frame but with less preparation. This is a challenge that can help you hone your acting skills and benefit from reliable income. Acting is acting, and anyone serious about establishing a career must work fearlessly, and be confident in every audition. However, commercial auditions are somewhat different. We’ll teach you how to get commercial acting jobs by auditioning well. Learn who will be in the room, how to spot the decision-makers, and the way to approach meetings with enthusiasm and charm. This work demands the same emotional depth as other on-camera work, but there is less time to prepare. Chances are you won’t be on camera for very long, so we’ll teach you how to make every second count.
