Our COMMERCIAL talent agent showcase format is as follows: Each actor will hand their headshot/resume to each of the 5 agents (immediately before the actor performs) for the agents to review; however, agents will NOT take headshots/resumes with them when they leave the showcase (instead, the headshots/resumes will be returned to actors before the conclusion of the showcase). Actors will perform either a cold or prepared read of commercial copy** in front of FIVE COMMERCIAL AGENTS (from different talent agencies) AND the whole classroom of actors (as it is very important to learn from watching others). If any of the agents want, they may ask you questions or ask for ONE re-direct of some or all of the performance. Actors will receive a written assessment and/or get verbal critiques/comments. After all of the actors have performed, there will be a 30-minute educational Q&A session with the FIVE AGENT-panel in front of the whole classroom of actors. Next, actors will view a 45-minute video (by a talent manager) to be played immediately after the Q&A…that is full of practical up-to-date information on best tips of how to get representation, what agents/managers are looking for, marketing yourself, headshots/resumes, networking, social media, unions, and much more!
**Actors may perform a “rehearsed” or “cold” read of commercial copy…ALONE or WITH A PARTNER. Commercial copy should be approximately 1-minute (2-minute maximum). You can either choose ONE 1-minute commercial…or…TWO 30-second commercials. “Rehearsed” performances will perform first, followed by the “cold-readings”. We provide the commercial copy or you may select your own commercial copy from any source (and even write your own). Please see our website for a selection of commercial copy: http://hollywoodactingworkshop.com/calendar/sides/commercial-copy. For more clarification about the workshop, please call 310-717-2181 (9am-10pm) or email: email@example.com. We provide the commercial copy (unless you have your own)
