James Alburger's PIE workshop (Performance Intensive Event) is a 2-day workshop focusing on the craft of performing for voiceover.
Here's what a recent student has to say about PIE:
"I had an incredible experience during this 2-day workshop. It was such a supportive and encouraging environment. This allowed me to leave my inhibitions at the door and gave me permission to play. I also loved the intimacy of the work setting. It allowed all of us to get more hands-on experience and personal feedback.
"One of the biggest things I learned is just how hard this VO thing really is! And how vital it is to creating strong characters in whatever VO niche you pursue. It’s all about voice acting, not just reading lines of copy (anyone can do that!).
"I loved that the focus was on the performance aspect of voiceover. I gained so much knowledge from just getting up there and doing it! And I learned so much from the other performers.
"I love that we will get to keep all of our recordings [everyone’s]! James Alburger is truly the ”VO Guru”! I really enjoyed learning from him!! It is so inspiring to see a person living out their passions and dreams and pursuing what they were called on this Earth to do.
"But the best part is – James Alburger is willing to share his gifts and talents with the rest of us! I just feel so honored and grateful to have had this experience. Needless to say, it was well worth the investment. Thank you so much, Mr. Alburger!"
