This class was created at the request of agents and actors. This 4 week on camera workshop is for those people that have very little experience in commercial auditioning. The Adult Commercial Workshop may be a bit too advanced for someone that has never really been in front of a camera. This class, taught by Eric Almquist ( commercial casting session director) will teach you the basics of auditioning and the verbiage used in the industry. This class will get you up to par so that you can take the Adult Commercial Workshop and understand what Killian is talking about.
The Foundation Class will be taught using Killian's technique so that actors who are new to this will be "bookable" by the end of the 4 week course. Also, Killian will be there overseeing the auditions and giving feedback.
This class is an incredible opportunity for the non-represented actor, as Killian will send the final audition to the top commercial agents in town so you can get representation and start booking work!!
This 4 week on camera intensive focuses on Killian's specific technique to empower the actor to take their commercial career to the "next level". It is for actors that already have agency representation and are looking to become a force in the world of auditioning. The workshop encompasses every aspect of the commercial industry and teaches the actor how to excel in this competitive market. All levels of experience are welcome but the actor must have agency representation in order to guarantee a certain level of commitment within the class. The last class audition will be sent to major casting directors within the AHC Inc. organization as well as to the actors agent. Class size is limited to ensure proper camera time and one-on-one attention.
This class is the starting point for all great commercial actors.Cost: $325.00
This 4 week, on camera workshop was designed at the request of agents and commercial directors.
Each week is dedicated to recreating a different aspect of the callback scenario. This workshop is totally unique in Los Angeles. This is not for the beginner, nor people that are not represented by an agent or manager.
It was created for those seasoned actors that are in a "slump" or for those actors that receive a steady number of callbacks with a disproportionate ratio of bookings.
The last week of this class doubles as an actual performance in front of professional casting directors.Cost: $400.00
This 4 week workshop teaches the art of improvisation as it relates to commercial auditioning.
Although it is technically illegal (SAG rules) to be asked to improv in a commercial audition, every single audition i have gone on as an actor and every one I have worked in casting since 2007 has had some form of improv needed to book the job. You cannot become a working actor in this city without learning these skills.
I have paired up with an amazing Improv teacher and together we teach the basic rules of improv in the first half of every class and then I link it to a commercial audition in the second half of every class.
This class is truly fun and more importantly teaches the actor how to correctly apply the improv art when in an audition. The class size is limited to ensure proper attention is given to each actor.Cost: $300.00
Our core classes present a comprehensive view of everything that you’ll need to know as a commercial actor.
Unlike other workshops that are designed to be a money pit for the actor, I teach you everything you need to know in the first 4 weeks.
However, like with all good things in life, experience comes with practice.
The refresher classes are for those actors that have already completed one of the 4 week workshops. We work with actual commercial copy from my office to practice what you have learned in previous sessions.
These are not mandatory, and actors can come whenever they feel it is warranted.Cost: $40.00
