I could not be more excited to share this photo and the overwhelming joy I feel after running my first Commercial Audition Workshop on Sunday. I had an amazing group of actors come out and bring their best, most positive, open selves to play. We were able to jam pack 4 hours with great work; we learned about slating, our commercial essence, marketing material, clothing choices, improv auditions, group auditions and scripted auditions. We discussed the importance of building community and of course, having a positive, outgoing energy in and our of the audition room.

Jonny provided us with some amazing insights into the other side of our auditions, answering questions about the casting process and helping us understand our role and responsibility in our auditions and callbacks.

I’m so grateful to this fine bunch and am proud to have them in my community! They’ve definitely given me the confidence to offer another workshop soon!
