Commercial Acting  

In this market, Commercials are the bread and butter of the industry.  An actor here must be well versed in commercials. COMMERCIAL ACTING gives the actor the tools and on-camera experience to successfully navigate any commercial audition. The course will cover the commercial business, components of the audition, creating reality on camera, one-word and multiple character scripts, improvs, using props and food and more.  Actors will break down scripts and will work on-camera at every class. Plus, actors will review footage at every class to see what worked and what didn't. A video copy of the class work will be provided to the student at the conclusion of the course.
