Sound Advice Clients: in-studio Workshop

Filed under: Links to Learn From — Tags: , , , , — wannabeavoiceactor @ 14:17

There is an interesting collection of MP3’s here.

These are student training sessions in the soundbooth. You can hear the direction and you can hear the students working on the copy. I find that when I am in class and worrying about my upcoming exercise I can’t really concentrate that well on the other students when they are in the booth. This is an easy way to listen and concentrate.

This is from a studio down in LA where Kate McLanaghan runs a school called Sound Advice. They also do demos.

Oh, and there are also several recordings featuring Nancy Cartwright, you know, Bart Simpson?

Had my 4th class last night. New teacher, and this time we did less script reading and talked a little more about the business of voice acting.

Just in case you didn’t realize it, this career you are embarking upon is a little different from filling out an application and starting to crank out the Crabby Patties!

At some point down the road, we are all going to be possessed of the Magical Golden Pipes (we hope), and we will sally forth into the bright sunshine with our hot little CD clutched in our sweaty hands! — Now What? (more…)

Added a link to Voicebank.com client listings and demos. Voicebank is a tremendous resource to those who need to listen to what the pros sound like. And that would be all of you (and me) who AREN’T pros! If you are unsure whether you are a pro or not, make a short 2 or 3 minute video demo of yourself and upload it to Youtube. The world could use a good laugh.
