The Actors Centre

Commercial Voiceover Crash Course

WHAT IS IT? A jam-packed access level workshop for actors wanting to move into Commercial Voiceover, or actors with limited voiceover experience wanting to expand their knowledge and skills before committing to a voice reel. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using practical exercises in an informal small group session, the workshop will help you understand your voice quality, cover Agents and voice reels, give you a stash of studio techniques, and help you feel comfortable and prepared for when you work with a client. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? An awareness of your voice and where you fit into the market, an understanding of the voiceover industry and the skills required to confidently record or improve your voice reel before you commit to an expensive reel recording. Katie and Ruth set up Reel Voices London to deliver bespoke Voice Reels for actors. They have provided industry-ready workshops and directed voice reels in drama schools and Universities. Price £25
