  • How to hold a product in a commercial without looking awkward..

    Hello guys and gals! Have you ever seen a commercial with an actor holding a product and it just looks..awkward? I have. That's why I decided to write this post!

    I've had to do a few product commercials myself. The number one way to make the product look natural is to BE natural. If you're holding a curling iron, try and imagine how you would hold your own curling iron at home. Or, if you're holding a product you're not used to, imagine it's something else that you use all the time that's around the same size.

    A great way to get good at doing this is practicing in front of a mirror. Hold a product that is (or similar) to the one you'll be using in your audition, and try to make it look as normal as possible.

    I remember one audition I had a while back where I had to pretend to talk on the phone. I didn't practice or prepare at all and I ended up looking super awkward when I was holding the phone. I did not get cast. Having this skill can set you a part from other actors!
