The Brick Presents
Intro to Voiceover Techniques
Brick Artistic Directors and voiceover professionals Theresa Buchheister and Ryan William Downey take you on a 2-day, 4-hour introduction whirlwind of the world of voiceover via Zoom.
They will cover the basics (common terms, tips of the trade, the differences between audiobooks, cartoons, video games, commercials, and how to prepare for an audition or project) as well as touch on the business of home recording (reels, agents, online representation).
The two day workshop is just $50 but spots are limited.
