COMMERCIAL CASTING MAPSTERCLASS
With John Askew
Through teaching and a mock casting session, you will leave this workshop armed with a complete toolkit, giving you the confidence and skills necessary to first of all understand your role within the commercial casting process, and book the job.
John works as both an Actor and a Commercial Casting Director, enabling him to provide a really unique and detailed insight into the world of advert casting from both sides of the table. He currently teaches in some of the UK’s top drama schools.
As an Actor he was represented by one of the top Commercial Casting Agents in the UK and has been to hundreds of these auditions. He has worked on an array of campaigns, from global brand television adverts (Samsung, McDonalds, TAG Heuer, Strongbow etc) to small brand internet only releases (Cornetto, Poloroid, GiffGaff etc).
As a Casting Director he worked with two of the top Commercial Casting Offices; ET Casting CDA CDG and Tree Petts CDG. During which time he worked on commercials for Disney, Npower, BT, PayPal, Duracell, Tesco, Jaguar, Curry’s PC World and Virgin Media to name a few.
