Get Scene Studios presents Big Picture of Commercials

A lot goes into whether or not an actor books the role. Specific things are completely out of our hands. Especially in commercials. We are bringing that entire experience into our virtual classroom to help be stronger commercial actors and better understand the technical side and the” behind the scenes” of what happens.

All actors will be sent commercial sides and requested to self-tape ahead of time. Tapes will be reviewed by our guests and given feedback.

Half of the class will be chosen for a “callback” scenario. It will be explained why specific actors move on and why some don’t. Everyone will stay in the class whether or not they’re selected. This is to mimic a real-life scenario and show you the process of booking a commercial.

Not ALL actors will be selected for the “callback”. But ALL actors will be in the class the entire time.

Everyone needs to come “callback ready.” This means as if you were going to have a REAL callback scenario from home.

  • Commercial Self Tape Eval

  • Live in-home Callback Scenario

  • In-Home Callback Technical Side

  • Behind the Scenes of Commercials

  • Q&A

This class is for 18+yrs

February 27


Catapult Acting presents Mind Over Actor Workshop | Teens


Often the biggest hurdle for actors is getting the “actor” out of the way and allowing the “human” to bring the character to life. When it comes to auditioning, the craft of acting is only a part of the equation. An absolutely essential element of a successful audition is the power of a strong, confident mindset. In this workshop, actors will dive deep into scene work and the mindset needed to audition at a professional level.

In this 6-hour intensive actors will be exploring:

• Replacing the concept of acting with living

• How to make a scene dynamic

• The effect of our thoughts in the audition room

• The power of being distinctive

• Why consistency and repetition is essential to being great

• Connecting the character to yourself

• The power of your subconscious

• The importance of personalizing a scene

• Painting your imaginary canvas

• Finding and expressing your authentic confidence
