New York City is the country's largest and busiest center for voice-over production. Success in this competitive market can mean earning thousands of dollars in session fees and high residuals for voice-over talents. Learn the essential competitive skills that can win voice-over jobs with highly productive training sessions held in a working recording studio, utilizing actual voice-over copy for national commercials, corporate/educational projects and narratives, animation work, television/radio promos, trailers and audio books. Learn necessary professional audition skills and recording session techniques, vocal textures/attitudes, copy interpretation and performance execution. You'll also receive an introduction to the business of voice-overs, focusing on talent unions, talent agents, producers and casting directors, and also listen to a variety of talent demo reels, learning the key essential elements of a successful demo reel. This course will be held in a midtown state-of-the-art sound recording studio. Students will receive their recorded readings at the conclusion of the course.
