***Details and Registration Below*


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.

For those with less experience, we offer our Behind the Mic, Beyond the Mic sessions. (see below)

The voice-over market is more competitive than ever, making your read more important than ever.  Our in-studio 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. (Our "Beyond the Mic" seminar will cover the business aspects of the VO market.)

Following your in-studio 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

Behind and Beyond the Mic.

with voiceover professionals, Beth Chaplin and Producer/Engineer Tom Hambleton.
