Commercial acting is the golden goose for actors and actresses. Finding a product and service to pitch, like Billy Mays, means money every time the commercials is played on television or any other media outlet. Getting the job to act on a commerical means you need to pass the audition where the producers find your features perfect for their pitch. Here's some tips for the perfect audition.

Things You Will Need


Audition for Commericals

Step 1

When you go to the audition, make sure you have the thought of smiling and laughter on your mind. Rarely is there ever a fleating thought of negativity or conflict. Be ready to smile and be part of the commercial.

Step 2

Find your copy and memorize it. Yet when you get to the set, take the time to hear the words in your mind as you read it off the cue cards. The cards are there to help so use them. This will show the producers you are aware of your content and on top of what they want to hear.

Step 3

Leave your nerves in the car. Sometimes we judge ourselves on how good or how bad we are at an audition or even before. Don't let this happen to you and screw up the opportunity of the audition. Instead, be okay with the idea of whatever the outcome, you will do your best.

Step 4

If you are auditioning with another individual, keep involved in the scene by listening to them and sharing what are their parts. Don't go dry and act only in your part of the commercial. Be willing to act for the whole period.

Step 5

Commercial acting requires facial and body expression far more than other mediums. Be keenly aware of how you place your body, eyes and even face so your audience can easily judge what you are thinking.

Commercial acting requires a lot of regular people. While actors and actresses do get parts, the producers of products and services are looking for people who can relay messages. These people are images of yourself and others. All different body types and attitudes. It is safe to say commercial acting is one of the easiest mediums to break into when you come to Hollywood.
