Introduction to Voice Over
Introduction to Voice Over
focuses on the most common pathway to a viable voice over career - radio and TV commercial work. We use scripts from the commercial world to develop microphone and storytelling techniques that will prove useful in all areas of VO.
This is NOT a class where we will be teaching how to land that next big cartoon voice for an upcoming Disney animated feature. If you're new to VO - the cold hard truth is that animation is usually the LAST step in building a VO career, and animation is an exclusive club populated heavily by very established actors and celebrities.
But loads of money can be made along the the way, and tons of actors find their full-time careers in VO markets like commercials, audiobooks, promos, non-broadcast, elearning, videogames, toys, phone systems, and much, much more.
You'll leave this course with an understanding of all the various markets, a solid foundation in mic technique, and a rock solid approach to ACTING the STORY in tv and radio commercials with nothing but your voice.
On topics including:
SO much more than just a self-paced course. And it's designed to be an awful lot like the workflow of REAL WORLD professional auditions.
You work, polish, record, and submit your performance on specific assignments, and one of our VO professionals will give you detailed recorded feedback as they listen through your tracks and point out what needs work and what is spot on.
Be confident that you are implementing the lessons successfully. Finish the course with a game plan specific to where YOU are at in your reads, just as you would with a live class.
With way more content and assignments than we could ever fit into a 6 week live Zoom class, you won't just learn ABOUT voice over - you will DO IT. And do it some more. And more. Till you own it.
7 of these assignments are flex-coached assignments. 21 more are opportunities to get peer feedback and sharpen your ear as you listen to the work of other classmates. All of them will build the foundation of a career.
Intro VO comes with a rock solid game plan for a starter professional home VO setup AND shows you how to use it... but our bonus course goes even deeper into home VO studio options and helps take the mystery out of how your kit may grow as your career progresses.
Over 5 hours of video
In a live class, most of your time is spent watching other actors work their lessons. The self-paced format lets us focus all on YOU. And we've loaded it with more specialized tips and tricks and concepts, and in a more focused structure than we could ever tackle when managing a group of live students. Best part is - you can watch it over and over again so you don't miss a thing.
You are not alone
We believe in the value of listening to others work. So we've got a built in community, and the ability to give and receive peer feedback on loads of the assignments. Ask questions. Share your experiences. Network. There is no "self" in "Self-Paced". At least not here. You are not alone.
