Commercial Audition Technique with Lisa Fischoff of Broadcasters

Work on-camera with Lisa Fischoff and improve your commercial auditions by learning her tips and techniques in this one night class.

With a very small class of just 10 students, you'll learn commercial techniques from Lisa's point of view and work on numerous pieces of copy as she provides direction as well as tips and techniques for on-camera commercial auditions. Lisa will work individually with each person, giving specific direction and notes on improving your performance. This is an opportunity to work closely with Lisa as the class size will be no larger than 10 students.  After this workshop she will definitely know who you are and what you can do on-camera.
