  • You may join this group at any time, provided space is available. Please call 858.484.0220 before registering.

The Basics:

Our Advanced Copy Interpretation Workshop is an advanced course in the craft and business of voiceover performance. We pick up where most introductory workshops leave off. You should already have a basic understanding of our coaching techniques and what it takes to work with a script. In this workshop we will work with you to hone and polish your skills.

We’ll also work with you to help discover your niche in the world of voiceover and prepare you for your demo, if needed. A demo is not included as part of this course, but you will be working on a wide variety of scripts that present your unique performing style and might potentially be included in your demo.

You can bring copy that you are working on or that you find challenging and we will work with you on developing your style for that type of copy - any genre! Please bring three copies of any scripts.

Or, you can choose a script from our immense catalog of voiceover copy.

In this Advanced Performance Workshop, you will:

  • Hone your wood shedding and performing skills
  • Learn copy writing skills that will lead to the creation of unique copy for your demo
  • Discover your primary niche in the world of voiceover
  • Learn specific performing techniques and styles for working in areas of voiceover not covered in most level 1 voiceover workshops.
  • Learn more business skills and marketing techniques.
  • Prepare for your first demo, or rework your current demo to make it more marketable.

  • This is an ongoing bi-weekly workshop event.
  • Maximum of 10 students accepted.
  • All classes held at VoiceActing Studios in San Diego
    • 6:30pm-9:30pm - Tuesday evenings

You can then move the files to a safe folder on your computer for future reference.
