Do you want to book that commercial?  Why not learn from one of the biggest booking commercial actors out there.  Jimmy Callahan has filmed over 60 national commercials the past 9 years in Chicago, LA, and now NYC, and will help demystify the entire experience of booking commercials.  You’ll learn how to identify & embrace your “type”, how to get a callback and book the job, and what to do behind the scenes.  Jimmy will reveal some of the secrets to success, as well as what commonly sabotages actors in the room.  You will learn how to quickly analyze commercial copy and then through improvisation, how to deliver what the ad agencies are looking for to book the job!  Also, you’ll meet and get feedback from NYC commercial agent Carole Ingber, as well as a NYC casting director.
