What you'll learn in this voice over class:

Appropriate For: Casual Learners, Aspiring Professionals, and Working Professionals

This class will help students think like a working voice actor and know how to behave like a professional, so clients keep calling you back in for more jobs rather than blacklisting you.

Description

Finally! After all of the hard work honing your performance skills/techniques and effectively marketing yourself, you’ve started to send out auditions and have even booked a few jobs! Your clients start to schedule you to either come into a professional studio, or they are going to patch into your home studio for the record. The day arrives, but the producer and the engineering team keep giving you directions that you don’t understand; they may as well be speaking another language. You can’t seem to do anything right, and you can feel your clients getting more and more frustrated with you as you waste their time and money.

All too often new voice actors just don’t understand the basic etiquette or industry terminology used in a professional recording session. Nothing will turn a client off more than an amateurish voice talent during a record. When you show up to a session, you are expected to be a professional, so you had better know how to act like one. 

This class will ensure that you don’t embarrass yourself. A complete recording session is reviewed from beginning to end; and the expectations of the producer, director, engineer and client are all clearly described.

Knowing what NOT to do is just as important. One unprofessional act or comment, even if the voice actor is unaware of the sin, can lead to not being invited back to audition or work for that studio or production team.

At the conclusion of this class, students will:

  • Have knowledge of the entire studio process for both auditioning and actual recording sessions; including the names and roles of the players involved
  • Understand the expectations the studio has of the actor; and know what the actor can expect from the studio
  • Understand all of the necessary actions to take prior to a session to ensure they arrive fully prepared
  • Be able to list inappropriate studio behaviors
  • Know what to do after the session ends

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.
