About the Workshop:
This special session will begin with an introduction on how to act for commercials with copy. The group will do a mock audition with callbacks, and then be advised who would have booked the job, along with an explanation as to why or why you didn’t receive a callback. He will also touch on other types of commercials that involve Improv and less focus on a script. One-liners, facial expressions, non-speaking commercials and Improv will be the focus.

The workshop for Hoffman models and talent is on Saturday, April 26th from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The workshop for AMTC Participants only is on Sunday, April 27th from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
