On-Camera Acting for Commercials for SENIORS
Instructor: Ann Baker
Next Six Week Session: Tuesdays, February 28 - April 3, 2012
In this class, Ann Baker will teach everyone from the advanced senior actor to those just looking to get involved for the first time the specific skills involved in acting for commercials and industrials. In this course you will learn how to interpret and deliver copy in an authentic and natural manner. Actors will learn how to be flexible enough to change up their delivery from script to script. By drawing from a variety of commercial and industrial copy appropriate for senior actors and relevant to the acting work that come to the Boston area, students will leave not only with a wide range of skills, but also with the creative instinct necessary to develop a character and communicate a story. Ann will also address the finer points of headshots and resumes, the audition process, and how to market yourself, helping you to actually find work. In the end you will take home a record of your progress and development along with a final commercial presentation.

“Ann is great. This class is a wonderful experience using “real world” scripts. After taking her class, I landed a “priest” commercial on NESN and a medical industrial playing a heart patient.” -David C.
