Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 6:30pm

This event is in the past.

After RAVE reviews on this class - Darren is BACK! This V/O class is perfect for someone who has always been interested in voice overs but doesn't really know where to begin.

Over the course of three weeks, you'll learn how to approach various types of voice over copy. Starting with the basics, Darren will work with you on two different kinds of animation records, ADR (recording to picture) and prelay (recording from scratch). In addition, you will have a simulated audition ONE on ONE in the booth in the last class.

You'll also learn the basics of working in a V/O booth plus lots of inside tips from someone who is constantly casting voice-overs and working with V/O actors.

Limited to 12 actors.
