NEW! Actors Connection Class

On Camera Commercial Improv 

This 3-week class is recommended for actors who feel comfortable reading commercial copy, are freelancing, getting sent out, or should be sent out for commercials. Most commercials these days require that an actor can improvise within that commercial, and we will work on taking a script and learning how to make it your own.

Week One: You will learn how to quickly interpret commercial scripts and bring out the best delivery you can. You will also be taught skills on how to feel and look comfortable in front of the camera and how to use improvisation to help enhance your performance. *Commercial copy will be provided before the first class*

Week Two: You will have scripts from the previous class to prepare for the following week's Showcase.

Week Three: Present your work, with Stacy in the room, to two popular NY Commercial Agents: Phil Cassese, Stewart Talent and Gina Manfredi, DDO NY
