Marc Cashman emails with details about a number of one-day voiceover workshops he’s planning for 2009.
In response to overwhelming demand, and in an on-going effort to “raise the bar” in V-O instruction, I’m scheduling a series of exciting, but rigorous one-day workshops in specialty areas of voice-over.
In the past, in addition to my practical, foundation-building course structure, I’ve brought in top voice talent as guest directors to give students challenging exercises that will prepare them for the real world of voice work. But starting in 2009, I’ll be inviting the top directors and producers in the U.S. in various fields of voiceover to participate in my workshops. These people will share their insight and expertise, and students who sign up for these workshops will be performing in front of decision-makers—people who are in a position to actually cast and hire talent.
My special guests will be owners/producers/directors of award-winning production companies in various specialty areas: videogames, audiobooks, animation production and commercials. I’ll also be inviting other top experts to share their advice, tips and techniques in areas outside of performance—areas like the business of voiceover: promotion, packaging and publicity, as well as the technical areas of home studio installation and recording.
Some of these workshops will be limited to advanced students and part-time and full-time professional voice talent (and only ten per event). Other workshops will be open to Beginning and Intermediate students. All workshops will provide breakfast, lunch and snacks, and run from 10AM to 6PM.
