The Actors Company is excited to welcome VOICE OVER AGENT –MICHAELA STEPANOVICH from SOLID TALENT VOICE OVER AGENCY & NOELLE ROMANO from EDGE STUDIOS. Michaela will be providing unique insight from an agents perspective and Noelle will provide the technical aspects of voice over.
We specifically designed this voiceover intensive to not only give you an opportunity to work with a voice over agent, but to actually provide you with a way to get into voice over and use the demo that you’ll create in the class.
We recommend this intensive for all levels of Voiceover Actors at all ages. Whether you are just starting out, or have experience in the industry, this is an amazing opportunity to continue to learn and grow as a Voiceover Artist. This class will have a specific focus on COMMERCIAL COPY.
WHAT WILL THE VOICE OVER INTENSIVE COVER?
WEEK ONE & WEEK TWO: Introduction to Commercial Voiceover: This week will comprise of an opening Q & A, and reading copy, which Micaela will assign. You'll be assigned copy so that Micaela can evaluate where you are currently at as a voiceover actor. All participants will have one-on-one direction, and coaching with Micaela & Noelle during each class. You will be given assignments and copy to prepare at the end of each class for the following week.
WEEK THREE: This is the final week spent in the classroom, so everyone will record all of the copy they would like to record in the booth. By the end of this class you will know what copy you are going to be laying down in the studio, and you will have 3 weeks of notes and coaching to help you prepare for the final week.
EACH WEEK YOU WILL BE SENT AN MP3 OF YOUR RECORDING TO STUDY
WEEK FOUR: This week we take a field trip to VOICE TRAX in Studio City. We've hired out the studio so you can lay down your tracks giving you 10 minutes of recording time. This is the week you will lay down your tracks, which will be the start to your professional demo. Typically, we recommend you’d record 3 x 20sec spots.
