More Information


Getting Paid to Talk is a class designed as an upbeat and realistic assessment of the voice over industry and opportunities for new voice actors, including areas of growth, common pitfalls and mistakes.

Among the materials your instructor will discuss: the different types of voice-overs, what it’s like to work in the studio, voice types that are in demand, where to look for work opportunities close to you, effective demo development and examples, industry pros and cons and more.

Everyone in the class will also have an opportunity to record a short voice-over for playback at the end of class. Your instructor will also be more than happy to offer you some basic voice feedback at the completion of the class.

This class is designed for adults, although older children are welcome with parental accompaniment.
