3-Week NYC Improv for Commercials In-Person On-Camera Intensive with Barry Shapiro!

First Time Ever! Join our Improv for Commercials In-Person On-Camera Class with Top NYC Casting Director, Barry Shapiro!

In this fun class you will work on commercials that require Improvisation. Many commercial auditions are asking for this skill these days.  We will work on facial expressions, non speaking commercials, commercials that have dialogue but the client wants you to make it your own and making up your own commercials off the top of your head. We will work on single improv, two-person improv and group improv over the three weeks.

Barry Shapiro is Owner of Herman & Lipson Casting. He has been with Herman & Lipson for over 37 years, casting over 8000 commercials- both voiceover and on camera- for products such as L'Oreal, ESPN, Advil, Verizon, Toy R Us, and many more. He casts commercials all around the world, as well as film, television, and theatre.
