Beginners Commercial Workshop 

Beginners Commercial Workshop 

Hosted by Casting Directors Murdine Hirsch & Deb Barnes

New to auditioning for commercials? Or... have you ever wondered what it would be like to BE in commercials? Would you like to learn what it's all about? Have you been auditioning but just not getting callbacks or booking?


We can help! Come and join us for the Ultimate Beginners Commercial Workshop! 

Designed for adults (16+) with very little or no on-camera experience, you will get valuable feedback from two exceptionally dynamic casting directors in one class!

In the Beginners Commercial Workshop you will...

  • Understand how the commercial process works, and your part as an actor & team member.
  • Learn about getting your audition, callbacks and booking.

  • Get a behind the scenes look at Castingworkbook – what we see and how we choose you.

  • Understand how to have the best chance to be seen over again by casting.

  • Have a chance at performing several SOC and Principle scripts and getting direct feedback. 

  • Learn important & valuable information that will set you apart. 

This 3 hour workshop lets new actors explore the audition process. From slating confidently, to being prepared with scripts and nailing the audition! It's all about getting you comfortable, so you can have fun, show your true self, and learn what it takes to book!

You'll have multiple opportunities to be 'on-camera' with different commercial scripts, SOC roles (silent on camera/non-speaking), and Principal Performer (scripted). 

You'll watch your audition, get helpful feedback, and when you try again you'll be surprised at how much better you'll feel and DO!  

Watching your peers doing the same audition will help you realize that you are not alone in trying to understand what makes an audition great!

We both share hilarious anecdotes of our experiences, both good and bad to help the learning stick!

Plus, there will be lots of time for Q&A from both of us!

We’re gonna have a blast!  Please join us.
