Twin Cities Professional Voice-Over Workshops


Presented by:
Beth Chaplin (Veteran VO Talent/Author - The Acting Biz: A Career Guide to the Twin Cities)
Tom Hambleton (Composer/Sound Designer/Engineer, Undertone Music)


Professional VO workshops are not beginner workshops!  We work with experienced, trained actors who are serious about pursuing voice-over work -- and/or voice-over talent with professional experience who want to become more competitive in the VO market.

The voice-over market is more competitive than ever, making your read more important than ever.  These workshops are all about voice acting techniques and the art and craft of voice-over.  Our focus is on you and your copy interpretation to create your most bookable reads.  This is about making you more marketable, not how to market yourself or how to build a home studio.

Following your workshop, you'll receive your recorded audio files for possible use on future VO demos.

You'll learn a TON in this hands-on workshop from people who not only know the business, but who genuinely care about you and your product (your voice and delivery)
-Rusty Kath

Beth is a rockstar whose ability to guide is incredible. Tom is a badass whose feedback cuts through the small talk and gets to the heart of the matter.
-Diana Jurand

I'm feeling a noticeable difference in my first dozen scripts this week. Thank you!
-Carissa Sherman
 
I feel more prepared to step into an audio booth with confidence rather than self-doubt.
-Ryan Lear

If (you) are at all interested in becoming a VO actor, this is a SAFE setting to get in front of the microphone and try it out in a real setting with people who know what they are talking about...they will give you honest feedback in a constructive and respectful way.
-Ashley Benbow
