Why this workshop?

If you are pursing work in front of the camera in the Pacific Northwest – or any region, really – being able to book commercial acting jobs is a must. Not only is woking in commercial fun, but it’s lucrative. And the more you book, the happier your agent will be. Don’t have an agent yet? No sweat. Booking commercials as a freelancer will help you when you are ready for your agency hunt, and this workshop will increase your chances of landing those roles. To be competitive when auditioning for commercials, you need the right set of tools and skills. This workshop will teach you how to approach and execute commercial auditions no matter where you live and work.We think it’s critical for actors to continue their training, and diversify their learning by working with new instructors and industry professionals. We are very excited to bring guest instructor and actor, Rachel Paulson, to the virtual acting studio for an amazing weekend of training. In this workshop, each actor will work and get redirection and instruction from Rachel. It’s a workshop we don’t think you will want to miss.

Saturdays offering, Social Media & Marketing for Actor, is on sale now. Come spend the weekend with Rachel Paulson and Mighty Tripod.
