Classes for Actors


It doesn’t feel good to enter a casting studio unsure about how you are dressed, worried about how you may look on-camera, anxious, nervous and insecure. Then you leave five minutes later having received no feedback on your performance, wondering ‘what did the casting director think of me?’

Our 3 hour workshops are aimed at honing the skills of more experienced actors as well as giving inexperienced performers an insight into commercial castings.

Class size is limited in order to ensure plenty of one-on-one time with Tree and Lou and adds a very personal approach to the session.

Fantastic Class

Fantastic Class, Tree and Lou were approachable and always generous with their knowledge and experience. Nice to know we’re on the same side, they WANT actors to do well and ‘nail’ that audition. So fired up and ready to put all I learned into practice. Bring it on!

Class 1: An insight into commercial castings.

Location: Spotlight Studios

Class Size: Limited to 14 people

Cost: £89.00 * If you are a performer this is 100% tax deductible

What we cover in this class:

  • Drama auditions & commercial castings  - we explain the differences
  • Tips and Techniques - how to make the best impression
  • Do’s and Don’ts - the essential guide
  • Idents - why are they so important?
  • Working with broadcast quality equipment/technology in a central London studio with a professional cameraman gives you a true commercial casting studio experience
  • Commercial Scripts - You will work with real commercial scripts on-camera then watch your performance on playback, whilst we give you honest and helpful feedback. Not many classes offer this view back facility but we find it really helps actors to see what the director and casting directors see when we view the footage after a casting.
  • We also supply you with comprehensive notes, so on the day you will be able to relax and fully participate in the class.
