Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/18/2014 -- Late winter isn’t just the busy season for tropical destinations; it’s also the time of year when agents and casting directors are looking to book actors for both commercials and TV gigs. Carolyne Barry, a master talent coach and Hollywood veteran, is preparing to launch more students into the spotlight with more commercial-focused classes.
“Hollywood can be incredibly seasonal, especially during the cold winter months,” says Barry. “It’s cold on the East Coast, so more agents and directors are headed to LA to do their work. Additionally, this is the traditional time of year for commercial filming, as advertisers want their campaigns to be ready for the fall season.
“Add to the fact that casting for pilots are being finalized right now, and it’s no exaggeration to say that actors can rack up a serious amount of auditions and gigs,” Barry points out.
To help accommodate students with the growing demand for commercial and pilot show gigs, Barry is pleased to announce the addition of her brand-new Commercial Improv class. Spurred on by successes like Flo from Progressive Insurance, this class is dedicated to showing actors how they can use essential improv skills within commercial campaigns.
“The best commercials stand out because they’re led by funny and quick-witted personalities,” says Barry. “My Commercial Improv class can help students use comedy to book more gigs with national commercial campaigns.”
