Barbizon Alumnus Brian Byrnes is a Veteran in the Commercial Game!

For those of you who follow the career of Barbizon of Akron alumnus Brian Byrnes, he has added two more national commercials to his already very impressive list. You can still see Brian in a number of the Target commercials that are airing today, in addition to many of his other video’s that have now been put on YouTube.

Our favorite commercial to date featuring our very own Brian Byrnes, is the CISCO commercial where Brain ends up sporting a Mohawk at the end of the paper scissors commercial. You can see Brian acting out two very different characters in a couple of his most recent commercials for Volkswagen and Kitchen Aide.

Over the years Brian has really perfected his acting skills by continuing to take acting classes and boy have those classes paid off; Brian is able to switch character at a drop of the hat, which has resulted in him landing in a long list of great commercials.

We asked Brian about the money he makes in national commercials…he shared with us that for one Crown Royal commercial he made 120K, yes you read that right 120K for one commercial, needless to say Brain says “I loved that commercial”… What is not to love!

The way Brian is going we are sure we will have even more news to report on very soon! What commercials will we see him in next?

Barbizon of Akron Graduates Team Up With Pet Supplies Plus for a Promotional Event!

Dog lovers this one’s for you. Our promotional guys and gals were out at local Pet Supplies Plus stores throughout the area interacting with our four legged friends. While our four legged friends loved the samples of Bil-Jac dog food our staff handed out, their two legged owners wanted to grab one of the brochures our staff had that was full of coupons!

Our extremely pulled together promotional models were out in full force for this promotion, so we can’t list every model, but here are a handful of the models that got to participate in this super fun event: Paige Helman, Sierra Burleson, Dean Miller, James Brooks, Alex DeCuzzi, Emily Hauser, Tiffany Stanek, Heather Baker, Lennon Brooks, Josh Moyer, Kelsey Shearer, Emily Moore, and Haley Coles.

The client reported back that they were very happy with all of the models as they all looked great, were very personable and were able to talk knowledgably about the products. Models can’t stand back and throw samples at people; they have to have stellar communication skills to be able to interact with the consumers and that's where the models training from Barbizon of Akron came in handy! Great job to all- you made many dogs very happy!

The game/activity for the shoot this time… volleyball! All three girls shot a variety of pictures that are going to be used on some new product packaging.

The girls were not only excited to have the opportunity to work with the photographers, but were excited with the paycheck they received!
