The Actors Company is pleased to welcome ALYSSA GENTILE from the powerhouse INDEPENDENT ARTISTS talent agency. This company specializes in voiceover and commercials, counting many, many name actors among their roster.
WEEK ONE and TWO- The classes will include two weeks on commercial voiceover, including both TV and radio. Spending two weeks on commercial is important because for most VO artists, this is where they see the most success, particularly when they are at the early stages of their career. Alyssa will do cold reads to see how quick you can deliver and make adjustments and to get to know your voice
WEEK THREE- The third week will revolve around animation and the different skill set that is involved in making a drawn character come to life. Additionally, promos will be worked on.
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 record 3 x 20sec spots.
Please click the below link for a sample of what your demo will sound like.
(SEE BELOW SAMPLE DEMO RECORDINGS.)
PLEASE NOTE: You will get 1 FREE track mixed with music. Additional tracks are charged at $69.99. The music will be mixed with your voice track and will be e-mailed to you a week after you record.
