THERE’S REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF HERE!

You can return to this page at any time by logging in to your account and looking for the VAA Performance Intensive workshop. Click on the link to return to this page.

WORKSHOP INFORMATION:

Now that you’re registered, you’ll need more information about the workshop location, accommodations, travel arrangements, etc. All that and more is included in your registration package that you can download from this page.

This workshop was either added to your existing VoiceActing account, or a new account was set up using your PayPal address when you registered. A confirmation e-mail was sent to you with your login username (your e-mail address) and your temporary password. We suggest that you login as soon as possible to update any missing information to your profile and to change your password.

As part of this event, we’ve prepared a series of webinars that are designed to give you the lecture information and preliminary training you will need to get the greatest benefit from the workshop. These webinars comprise the majority of the lecture portion of the event, which gives us much more time to work with you on-mic. Our coaching will focus on the concepts covered in the webinars, so if you do not watch them, you may feel left behind or somewhat overwhelmed at the workshop. Please allow plenty of time for each webinar... you won’t regret it!

This is important: Watch each webinar to the very end! At the end of each webinar, simply close the player browser to return to the webinar page and click on the link below the video image to take a short “quiz” that will help you to lock in the information you just learned. You are not graded and we don’t review your answers. But completing each quiz will be the best way to test your knowledge. When you click the Submit button at the end of each quiz, you’ll be returned to the webinar viewing page. The webinar page is only accessible through your member account, so you will need to log in before you can access the webinars.

Your first webinar is at the bottom of this page, but please read the rest of this page and download your registration package before watching the webinar.

BREAKS & MEALS:

We do not have scheduled breaks, but we will take a short break every 90 minutes or so. Our workshops are quite informal, so feel free to get up or move around quietly as needed.

We will break for lunch around 12:30 or so on each full day of the event. Depending on the size of the group, we may go out for lunch “dutch treat,” or we may have sandwiches or pizza brought in. Lunch will be decided at the beginning of the first full day. Please plan for $15 for food and beverage. Dinner after each day of the event is on your own - or we may go out for dinner as a group.

ADD DROPBOX TO YOUR COMPUTER (2GB of storage for free):

We use Dropbox for delivering your on-mic work during the workshop. Please follow the instructions in your registration package and install Dropbox on your computer - or just go to www.DropBox.com to download and install Dropbox. At the event, we’ll create a shared folder and invite you to join. You must accept our invitation to share the folder in order to get access to your on-mic work during the event.

Your event recordings will be available for download from our shared Dropbox folder for several weeks after the event, but we suggest you copy the files from your Dropbox shared folder to a safe folder on your computer as soon as possible. Please do not cut/paste files from the Dropbox folder, as that will remove the files from everyone on the share.

With a Dropbox account you can create other folders to share files, pictures, videos and more with friends and family. Please do not put personal files in our shared VAA Performance Intensive folder.

DOWNLOAD YOUR PRE-WORKSHOP PDF FILE:

We have a pre-event homework assignment for you. Please download the pre-event PDF file by clicking on the link below.

Download the Pre-Event Assignment & Fill-in Notes here.

The FILL-IN assignment is mostly fill-in notes for you to complete during the workshop. However, we do ask that you do what you can to complete the assignments for each of the sections of the workshop. Most are simply extensions of what you are already doing (listening to radio and watching some TV). By completing these assignments prior to attending the event, you’ll be somewhat ahead of the curve as we discuss the many aspects of performing for voiceover. Plus you’ll have a few nifty fill-in-the-blanks pages for taking notes during the event.

IF YOU HAVE A LAPTOP, FEEL FREE TO BRING IT TO THE EVENT:

We will have tables, power and Internet access for you if you would like to use your laptop for taking notes during the workshop.

If you have any problems opening or downloading your registration package, or if you have any questions about the workshop, please call 858.484.0220 or email [email protected], and we’ll e-mail it to you.

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop.

THE PERFORMANCE INTENSIVE WEBINAR SERIES:
