It was a very informative evening, ending with the practical - recording and listening to each participant. The presenter, John Gallogly, had us each introduce ourselves (there were 12 people present by the end of the presentation) and state why we were there, and give a brief background of ourselves. He then shared some of his own curriculum vitae with us before moving on to more in-depth treatment of his subject - the voice-over industry. His background gave great insight into his subject matter by introducing the various types of voice-overs (commercial and narrative) used in the industry. I found the presentation to be very practical in nature, and informative. Mr. Gallogly involved his audience in the presentation, so questions were not deferred to the end, and actually helped focus on elements the listeners were seeking enlightenment upon. I would heartily recommend this presentation to anyone seeking entry level information. The only problem that kept me from making this a 5 star event was the venue used. The venue was a local bar, and we were in a room upstairs (also a mini-bar w/small stage). The audio bleed from downstairs was at times distracting as it was very loud. The location was central and therefore accessible, but (sigh) was distracting.
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.
