ONLINE INTRO to Commercial IMPROV Intensive with Barry Shapiro, CD, Herman & Lipson Casting - 6pm ET / 3pm PT

Friday, May 29, 2020, 6pm ET / 3pm PT

This event is in the past.

We are so thrilled to offer this ONLINE intensive with Barry Shapiro! Barry's classes are always sold-out, you'll need to be fast to get in on this one!

As every savvy commercial actor knows, many auditions are strictly improvised and in order to BOOK, you need to have this skill set down pat! Barry is an expert teacher of these kinds of auditions where there is either no copy at all or the script is partly or entirely improvised.

This online intensive will focus on Improv as it relates to commercials and other types of auditions. You'll learn to mime eating, talking and reacting in a restaurant scene; activities thrown at you "in the moment"; taking a script and putting it into your own words; improvising dialogue before the written script starts and after it ends; creating an instant character fully realized at a moment's notice and much more!

Please update your headshot and fill out the MY INFO section of your AC account upon registration.
