A TV commercial for A1 Steak Sauce.
Lori's acting skills have been utilized in over 100 commercials and radio ads in the Nashville and Tri-State area. Relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera or on a mic, "One-Take-Wonder Lori" gets it right the first time. Time is money!
With commercial acting, itís just you and the camera. You have to learn to tune everything else out. Itís all about pulling your audience into you. Itís smaller, more intimate. Itís about making it real. Itís about being real. You have to be able to endear yourself because the camera lens sees everything. Itís not uncommon to be given direction and then have to execute it with only your eyes or your face and nothing spoken. If you do have lines, you also need to be able to deliver them with different inflection and do it fast because time is money. One of my favorite directors once said to me, ďLori, think conspiratorial.Ē I got the scene in one take. He told me exactly what I needed to do with only one word. You wonít always be lucky enough to work with directors who know what they want. Thatís why you have to be able to bring something to the table. Thatís what youíre getting paid for.
