I’ve written before about a life-changing experience I had in Nashville in the early 90s when I attended a workshop with Marice Tobias. This weekend has been another such experience, and no surprise, it’s again involved the amazing Marice Tobias.
I’m in my hotel room in Manhattan as I type this, still trying to get my head around all that I learned today at day one of a Promo/Trailer workshop this weekend at the Sound Hound in West 45th Street. Today’s study was on movie trailers. And the one thing that stood out to me more than anything else was that everyone in the room brought their A game to this thing. Which meant that we all made ourselves better, as we listened to one another, heard the coaching and direction being given by Marice to one another, and encouraged one another. I literally cannot describe what it was like in more detail. I don’t have the words. But, I know that I’m going to go home to Charlotte tomorrow evening a different, a better, voiceover talent that when I came.
Tomorrow is the promo focus. I’ll write more when I can, but if it’s anything like today, I doubt I’ll be able to put those experiences into words either.
