You’ve seen them. The actors in commercials that play between your favorite prime time drama, or after the morning news, or during the Superbowl. Those well paid actors deliver the copy that so many advertisement and brand executives slave over. And they get paid for it. Handsomely. Don’t be fooled. Those actors didn’t just waltz into those commercials. They worked hard to get an agent that could get them the auditions that lead to booking a commercial. If you think you have what it takes to be in a commercial, there’s really only one way to find out: by taking a commercial class, New York actor!
Advertising Class New York Style: Making Copy Your Own
A lot of people might think that acting in a commercial is easy. Or maybe they think commercial actors aren’t as serious as other kinds of actors. But the truth is, the actors who can convince a casting director that they have the ability to sell a product are sometimes more skilled than other actors in other fields. Simply because they must take commercial copy and make it their own. It’s one thing to say “I love you,” in a dramatic scene. It’s another to talk about how much Pampers has made your life easier and mean it. That’s what taking a class that teaches how to act in advertising is all about.
