All Skill Levels! Ages 8 – 18!
Train with Caitlin Cooke of Donna Grossman Casting + CESD Commercial + Voice-Over Agent, Kerri Krilla!
Commercial acting is harder than it looks! You never get the copy in advance so it’s almost always a COLD READ AUDITION!
In the first half of the class, kids and teens will learn how to nail cold read auditions with top NYC Commercial + VO Casting Director, Caitlin Cooke of Donna Grossman Casting!
Caitlin will teach budding thespians how to quickly analyze commercial copy and find the acting beats within the text to make a lasting impression on both the CD and on ad agency executives!
After learning proper commercial acting technique, Caitlin will conduct mock auditions in which she will offer helpful feedback and coaching!
Kerri is always on the lookout for fresh faces!
In the latter part of class, take what you’ve learned and perform for top NYC Agent, Kerri Krilla of CESD who will also conduct mock auditions!
Kerri Krilla reps a lot of our students and they’re booking! Just look at one example, Gregory Diaz IV who’s booked huge national campaigns like APPLE and HONDA!
