INTRO to Commercial IMPROV Online Intensive with Barry Shapiro, Casting Director, Herman & Lipson Casting
Friday, November 6, 2020, 7pm ET / 4pm PT
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!
Barry's classes and intensives are always sold-out, you'll need to be fast to get in on this one!
