Professional VO workshops are not beginner workshops!  We work with actors who are serious about pursuing voice-over work.

If you are a complete beginner looking to get some training, feel free to email Beth if you are uncertain whether your experience will meet the workshop eligibility requirements. Beth@bethchaplin.com Or, see the links at the bottom of this page under VO Resources.

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.

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

The Business of VO

(2 1/2 hour session)

This is a tough business. The work is great, but getting work is the ongoing challenge for all VO actors. The business is bigger and more confusing than ever. Knowledge is power. Let’s break it down so you understand the big picture AND the necessary details.

What we’ll cover:

  • VO genres: commercial, narration, e-learning, promo, audiobooks, etc. Can you do it all? Or should you focus on the areas best suited to your skills? How do you know?

  • What kind of demos do you need?

  • Is your demo working for you?

  • Working with an agent.

  • Self-marketing and Pay to Play websites - the pros and cons.

  • Coaches, classes and training… so many options! How do you know what’s worthwhile?

  • The basic home studio recording and editing equipment. What do you need?

Bring your questions. We’ll help you find the answers.
