Burger Improv5 Week On-Camera COMMERCIAL CLASS with Barry Shapiro, CD, Herman & Lipson Casting

Price: $349.00

6:30 pm - Always a SOLD OUT class, Barry is a force in the field of commercial casting. He will be offering his unique insight and coaching skills in this comprehensive class.

You'll learn:

-How to audition for all different types of commercials including improv, one-liners and multi-person copy;
-Mastering cue cards, eating on-camera, and analysis of copy;
-What to do with the call back AND gain insight on what goes on AFTER you've left the room!

At the end of the 5 weeks, Barry will give an honest and direct evaluation on where you stand in the commercial market!

A fabulous opportunity to work with one of the TOP CD's in town with over 30 years experience in casting. Barry's recently cast commercials for GOOGLE, TACO BELL, McDONALDS, NFL, REVLON, MILLER BEER, DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, VOLKSWAGEN, BAYER ASPIRIN and MACARONI GRILL to name a few.

Work on-camera in every class!

Barry has been known to call in actors direct from his class for principal auditions. Certainly an opportunity not to be missed.

"I just wanted to send you a quick note. Your class has helped me tremendously! I
booked 2 union national commercials this month! I couldn't have done it without
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!"

-Karen Izaguirre

"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."
-Jen Abramson

"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!"
-Kim Conlon

"I really appreciate Barry's candidness! It's really hard to find such honesty and I learned so much about how to audition for commercials!"
-Mia Caress

"I loved every minute of this class. Barry is completely honest with you, where you learn but are laughing the whole way through. I'm much more comfortable in front of the camera now. It's a fabulous class! One of the best classes I've ever taken."
-Jean Ann Garrish
