This is an advanced program for students who are serious about their work and have taken performing arts classes at reputable institutions.

What better way to learn the art of voice-over acting than with a top VO actor in a state-of-the-art recording booth?

Voice-over acting is unlike any other type of acting. It requires an actor to make specific and original acting choices that are outside of the box using just their voice.

We’ll focus on two very different types of Voice-Overs: Big & Strong Character Choices (ex: Cartoons, Animated Films, Video Games) and Naturalistic Reads (ex: Commercials, Radio Spots, Promos)

Final Industry Showcase:
Class culminates in a final performance in the studio for loved ones and two scouting Talent Reps!

Already have rep? No problem! Take this class for its educational value!
