Join Laura Giannarelli and Clay Teunis for insights into the basics of voiceover work – both commercial and audiobook narration.
Come away with a better understanding of what it takes to get into the competitive field of VO work, and the basics of what tools (both in terms of their skill as readers/narrators and in terms of setting up a home studio) they will need to compete.
The ideal participant will have a marked interest in the pursuit of voice work – either in the commercial/narration field or in audiobooks. No previous training is required.
Participants are invited to bring material to read/share live with the group – a commercial spot or two or a 1-2 minute audiobook sample. Laura and Clay will provide constructive feedback. Bringing material to share is not required.
