Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast focused on directing commercials.

Oct 15, 2015

Comedian/Actor/Writer Wayne Federman is my favorite comic, and he's just put out his debut comedy album, The Chronicles of Federman. A box set of three CDs (also available digitally) that spans his 30 plus years of unique, killer stand-up.  Judd Apatow, who writes the liner notes, says "Epic, hilarious, inspired and whimsical." And Mr. Apatow goes on and on. Oh, and I must reveal, Wayne is also my best pal.

Wayne has acted in dozens of national commercials, with a proportionate amount of them being odd costumed characters. Regardless, Wayne shares his secrets on how he approaches his auditions and gets booked time and time again. We also chat about how he constructed and edited "Chronicles" himself, so plenty of tech talk here.

Click here to check out his Geico spot playing poker with Kenny Rogers. I've posted a Toyota spot we did together at and you can see tons of Federman in "I Am Road Comic". Be sure to catch him on late night TV real soon. Ya' know he was the head writer for Jimmy Fallon, so figure it out.

My next Commercial Directing Bootcamp will be in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, December 19th, 2015 - so sign up for Commercial Directing Bootcamp today! Read the reviews on this site. Pretty flattering. #blush.
