About this course:

Considering the lucrative field of TV commercials or seeking to improve your confidence in personal or business communications? In this course, participants take part in simulated, recorded auditions for both "slice of life" dialogue and "spokesperson" narrative. To help you attain relaxation, taped performances are sensitively directed and critiqued in class. This workshop also provides a comprehensive analysis of a commercial's production from the actor's point of view and gives such professional practices as successful audition techniques, proper photography portfolio, agency representation, and union membership.
