Session 2 (Fall): The Gig

Every actor has heard the expression, “you are enough.”

The expression reminds us we do not need to push to express our own humanity in the work we do.

Still, to be effective voicing commercials, it is crucial we learn the particular skills and technique necessary to bring our authentic selves to the copy in order to bring an ad writer’s words to life.

We learned the Music of the English Language long before we understood words. We sing it every time we speak, and it is at the heart of everything we do as actors.

Connecting this music to scripted works is foundational to understanding commercial copy.

the audition. the gig.

  • Spend meaningful time at the mic refining new skills and connecting them to skills you already possess.

  • Dive deep into the one thing which, once mastered, is a game changer: copy analysis.

  • Immerse yourself in what it means to bring your authentic self to the mic; how to use the music of the English Language to identify the writer’s intent; how to engage your whole self at the mic, all in a space where everyone is valued.

  • We will focus on the essential tools of the art - including copy analysis, decoding the spec, identifying point of view (who is speaking and to whom), body engagement, breath control, and how these tools apply to each distinct setting.
