Instruction by Aaron Takahashi
February 10, 2014 – March 31, 2014

“Your audition begins the moment you walk through the door.”

With over 45 national commercials under his belt, Aaron Takahashi’s commercial workshop takes a comprehensive look at the process of commercial acting, from signing in at the audition, to booking and shooting the job.  Through on-camera work, Aaron will introduce you to the numerous types of commercial auditions.  He will share his insights on the art of commercial acting, including breaking down audition sides, recognizing the tone of a spot, and finding beats and jokes.  Whether you’re just starting out in the commercial world, or have been auditioning regularly and not getting callbacks or bookings, Aaron will help you discover what you can do to set yourself apart from the crowd.  Prior acting training required.
