BacardiNEW! On-Camera Commercial Intensive with RACHEL REISS, Casting Director, Liz Lewis Casting

Price: $79.00

7:00 pm - AC is happy to welcome Senior Casting Director Rachel Reiss for this NEW Commercial Intensive!

In tonight's on-camera intensive, Rachel will work with you on the business of commercials, how to get auditions, how to rock an audition by dissecting commercial copy and mastering on-camera technique!

The class will start with insight on what happens before an audition and how to submit in an eye-catching way. Then Rachel will walk you through how to interpret commercial copy and skills that will improve your on-camera technique. Finally the class will be given commercial copy to perform in a group setting to display the learned skills and receive constructive feedback.

The intensive will end with a Q&A with Rachel to cover any remaining questions.
