your class. Your candid and constructive comments helped immensely. The audition
exercises you had us do definitely prepped me to expect the
unexpected at auditions :) Thanks a bunch!"
"I've been taking Barry Shapiro's 5-week On-Camera Commercial class and feel it's taken me to the next level - what a fantastic class! I wanted to share my success story that I just BOOKED and filmed a Loehmann's commercial that will be airing mid-September."
"I never knew how much there was to learn about analyzing copy. I learned so many different things about facial expressions and reactions and I felt I got MORE than what I paid for! This is a great class! I'm glad I took it and I've already recommended it to many of my friends, some who are actors and some who are looking to learn more about commercials!"
