Nike Commercial Acting Tips
When auditioning for a Nike commercial, you'll want to ensure that your acting is as natural and authentic as possible. To do this, focus on making minor adjustments to the script rather than trying to memorize it word-for-word.
Instead of reciting the lines, use them as a tool to help you create believable characters and portray genuine emotions. Use body language and facial expressions to tell more of the story.
Be ready to improvise if necessary. Many directors will ask actors to try new takes or add their spin on scenes after they have performed using the given script. After all, commercials are meant to capture an audience's attention in a limited time – so be prepared to think on your feet and work with what you're given.
Finally, always remember to stay in the moment. Being relaxed and present on set will help you achieve the best performance possible. Even if a take isn't perfect, don't worry – sometimes it takes several tries before a director can capture what they are looking for.
You deserve to get discovered. Find more jobs, networking opportunities, and resources on Project Casting.
