This intensive course is designed for people who would like to pursue a career as a trained voice actor. The class covers all the aspects of creating professional voice recordings as well as creating a successful business plan and marketing yourself as a voice talent. Initially, students analyze existing voice-over narrations, finding material best suited for their own voice and recording a finished demo. Class demos involve vocal warm-ups, microphone techniques and breaking down scripts in order to make the copy suit each individual student. Other topics include picking a studio, an engineer and an agent, packaging your demo and finding work. Grading is based on assignments, class participation and the finished demo. In addition to tuition a $35 course fee is charged.
