What makes this scene study class unique?
First: John is a working actor. Here’s a sample of his work:
Second: the focus of the class…is to get actors to performance levels with little or no rehearsal. The technique we use is designed to help create fully realized, multi-faceted characters that leap off the page. All your work and John’s notes on your work are recorded and you’re given a copy to take home.
Third: John’s highly acclaimed book, The Science & Art of Acting for the Camera. “John Howard Swain not only knows how to do it, he knows how to teach it…and that is exactly what he does in his wonderful new acting manual. He clarifies, encourages and enlightens. A must-read for anyone who wants to be a better actor!” Mary Lou Belli, two-time Emmy award-wining director, NCIS: New Orleans, Hart of Dixie, Pitch, Monk, The Game, co-author of Directors Tell the Story

“I just booked my 45th commercial (most of them nationals). I still use the techniques I learned from John.” Susan Santiago — Actor
Why is this class different than other commercial classes taught in New York?
First: the teacher. John has directed, produced or starred in over 200 national spots. Check out the video below!
Second: the technique. Students learn specific techniques that turn the commercial audition process into a series of simple acting exercises instead of just rolling the dice and hoping for the best. Does it work? John’s students have booked over 8,500 jobs!
Third, the practical experience. On the last week of class one of New York’s busiest casting directors, Donna Grossman, walks the students through the experience of an actual audition. This is followed by a Q & A where the actors learn first hand the do’s and don’ts from a casting director’s prospective.
Actors take home a copy of their work after every class. If you want a leg up in commercials this is definitely the class for you!
