VOICE Convention Recordings and Audio Training

One of the most practical ways to study voiceover is by listening to seminars, panel discussions, and workshop training. You’ll be amazed at what you will learn.

If you were in Los Angeles for VOICE 2008, you know what an amazing event this was! More than 400 voice actors from 9 countries attended more than two dozen seminars presented by 20 top coaches from three countries, PLUS special events and a pre-opening reception with some of the top industry professionals in the world!

To say VOICE 2008 was a memorable
and educational experience...
...would be an understatement!

If you weren’t able to be in Los Angeles for VOICE 2008, it’s not too late to take advantage of the incredible training offered in the business of voiceover, performing techniques, and current VO technology.

    For a limited time, you can purchase a compilation DVD-Rom* with MORE THAN 24 HOURS of audio recordings of most of the conference events**.

Along with your audio DVD-Rom, you’ll also receive a set of the 3 conference workbooks, the VOICE 2008 Program/Magazine, and a VOICE 2008 tote bag (plus other goodies while supplies last.)
