4 Week On-Camera COMMERCIAL Class with David Cady, Commercial Casting Director, Donna DeSeta Casting PLUS 3 Commercial Agents of your choice!

Price: $329.00

11:00 am - Hailed as one of THE BEST Commercial teachers in town, we are thrilled to have David teaching this always SOLD OUT SATURDAY Commercial Class.

Many of our actors have requested to work with David, so here is your opportunity!

Over the course of 4 weeks, you'll work on: on-camera technique, breaking down commercial copy, working with cue cards, testimonial vs more character driven auditions, and improv.

You'll also learn tricks of the trade, common mistakes and how to fix them, what really goes on at a call-back and he'll answer any questions you might have. Have you ever wondered why you're not booking more commercials or even just getting a call-back? What are you doing that is holding back your true potential? David is here to help you find out just that and fix the individual issues that are stopping you from booking more jobs!

With the class, you'll also get three seminar credits to meet three on-camera commercial agents!

Work on-camera in every class!

A highly respected CD with over 20 years in the business, David Cady has probably cast close to 1000 commercials. He began his career as an actor before moving into film and television casting with Bonnie Timmermann and Howard Feuer, and commercial casting at Grey Advertising. He has been with Ms. DeSeta for 19 years. This very busy office casts TONS of commercials (both on-camera and V/O) including: Google, Scholastic, Ochsner Hospital, NFL, Stanley Steemer, Verizon FIOs, Marlboro, Orbit Gum, TD Bank. He's called in and booked several AC actors from past seminars and gives great feedback.
