COMMERCIAL WORKSHOP
WITH JOHN FULTON
 

"Commercials are always new and changing rapidly. I want people to feel comfortable with those changes and to give the best auditions and callbacks they can with an energy that tells the client they’re going to be making the right move if they pick you. This will be very different than a theatrical class but we can use Graham Shiels Studios techniques of stillness, specificity, and reversals inside commercial auditions to give a real, grounded performance inside the wacky fresh world of commercials." -- John Fulton

Commercial Workshop

Teaching you to be your authentic self right from the start in any given situation and how to adapt when it instantly changes in person or on Zoom. Using Graham Shiels Studios techniques, improv, and of course A LOT of buttons , we’ll learn the tone and feel of campaigns quickly with confidence and how to make familiar ones fresh.  John teaches you when to make giant choices and when to do absolutely nothing. From those pesky heavy dialogue self tapes to the group zoom callback, the goal is to give the best tape possible every time so you keep getting called back with more Casting Directors.
