Commercial Casting Director Showcase – Aug 16

A productive night to showcase your talent in front of Commercial Casting Directors. Casting Directors don’t often cal in talent they’ve never seen perform before, so this is your chance to lets these casting directors see your skills. Make a great impression and get called in for future auditions is the goal. 
This is On-Camera and performances are recorded and sent out to Talent & Casting Directors. 
Reps are: Barry Shaprio – Herman & Lipson Casting; Angelita Gonzales – DreamCasters; Elizabeth Gans – Stark Naked Productions; Steve Stancato – Paladino Casting
The night starts off with a brief discussion panel about how the commercial casting business works and about each casting director. Then, each actor will come to class prepared, and preferably off-book, to perform a commercial spot for the panel. After your first read, the panel will then make adjustments and see how you take direction after reading a second time. Both readings will be recorded on camera and sent to you within a week. Talent should dress for the role they’re reading. Bring 5 Headshots & resumes
*Limited spots available.*
