You'll get immediate access to nearly 6 hours of recorded webinars that will give you all the lecture content for the P.I.E. workshop. Watch and learn before you attend the live workshop.
Personalized coaching is the key to mastering voiceover. During the live P.I.E. workshop, you'll receive plenty of personalized coaching from James Alburger and Penny Abshire in several areas of VO.
All on-mic coaching sessions are recorded, and you'll get a copy of everyone's recordings - not just yours! Use the direction we give others to rapidly build your own performing skills.
I highly recommend spending a weekend with Jim and Penny. Several years ago, they gave me knowledge I would have been hard-pressed to get anywhere else and most importantly - Direction (career and otherwise), which led to success within a year. This was money and time well spent in my case!

The VoiceActing Academy P.erformance I.ntensive E.vent is an intensive two day workshop focusing on the craft of performing for voiceover. This is the place where you can test your acting abilities, learn new communication skills, and explore new directions.
P.I.E. comes in two flavors: Our P.I.E. in San Diego workshop is held at VoiceActing Studios and is limited to a maximum of 10 students. P.I.E. in the Sky is the clever name for our on-line workshop. Also limited to a maximum of 10 students, this workshop is a two-day video conference call that you can attend from the comfort of your home studio.
Both workshops are held over a weekend from 10am to 5pm Pacific Time, both days.
Whether you attend our live San Diego workshop or study with us through our live video conference call, we guarantee you will leave the event with a new and inspired perspective on how to work with voiceover copy.
Personalized, one-on-one coaching is absolutely the best way to learn and quickly master voiceover performing skills. During our San Diego workshop, you'll work closely with James Alburger and Penny Abshire in the comfort of VoiceActing Studios. You'll experience several intensive on-mic coaching sessions covering several genres of voiceover. There's nothing quite like being in the same room with like-minded people who are all eager to learn and master new skills. And that's exactly what you'll get with P.I.E. in San Diego. Oh, and did we mention that you'll be served pie and ice cream on the final afternoon of the workshop?
For some, it's simply not possible or cost-effective to make the trip to San Diego. So, we created P.I.E. in the Sky by taking our P.I.E. workshop on-line! You'll get the same level of coaching and training you would get if you were attending live in San Diego, but instead of being at our San Diego studio, you'll be on your laptop or in your home studio.
We've been perfecting the process of on-line coaching for more than three years with our Conductor's Club members. Because our on-line P.I.E. workshop is done as a two-day video conference call, there are some very specific things you'll need to plan for:
There are a few other things you'll need to take note of, which are covered in our Registration Package (you'll receive this after you register), but these are the primary things you need to know before signing up for our P.I.E. in the Sky workshop. If you have any questions, please call us at 858.484.0220 M-W or Friday between 10am and 5pm PT.
To learn how to “do the business” correctly, you need to study with someone who’s done it... and continues to do it. We’ve been working in voiceover, both on mic and as producers, directors, copy writers, coaches, and production engineers for more than 35 years. Need more credibility? How about 11 Emmys for audio production and sound design, the author of “The Art of Voice Acting,” considered by most professionals to be the “bible” of the industry, and co-producers of the VOICE convention, the world’s original and only truly International voiceover convention.
Do some research before you sign up for any voiceover workshop! And consider, very carefully, any coach who tells you that “you’ve got a great voice,” or recommends that you produce an expensive demo after taking only a few classes. Chances are you may not be ready. There are literally thousands of people who want to break into voiceover, and those who succeed will be the people who are well trained and know what they’re doing. We’ll make sure your voiceover work has you on the right path.
The VoiceActing Academy P.erformance I.ntensive E.vent is NOT a seminar or webinar where you passively listen to lectures or watch your computer screen! Oh, no... P.I.E. is a totally interactive workshop. Whether you are attending our live San Diego workshop or attending the video conference call, you'll be interacting with James and Penny throughout the event.
Our goal is to give you the best training and education in acting for voiceover that you will find anywhere - and that can take some time. Our primary training is our Weekend Performance Intensive, which includes nearly 6 hours of webinars and 2 very full days of hands-on, personalized coaching. After you’ve got some basic training under your belt, we offer very affordable on-going support and coaching through our Conductor’s Club membership site. Visit www.ConductorsClub.com for details.
The VoiceActing Academy P.I.E. Workshop is all about using acting, voiceover, and performing techniques for more effective communication - and these skills can be used in every area of your life.
Because this workshop is all about your performance, you will - of course - get lots of time on mic! But, unlike most other VO workshops, we don’t put you in front of a microphone before you know what you’re doing. The first section of our workshop consists of five comprehensive webinars designed to help you fully understand the performing concepts you’ll be working with when you are on mic. We encourage you to study the webinars before attending the workshop.
During the VoiceActing Academy P.erformance I.ntensive E.vent Workshop:
Plus, you'll get our entire collection of media interviews, including the WGN "Extension 720" program from Chicago featuring James, Penny, Tim Dadabo and Doug James.
