Voice Over Career Track Training
At Voice Over Virtual, training will be presented in career tracks to allow participants to focus on specific genres, including audiobooks, home studio audio production, voice over business and marketing, and voice acting techniques.
Training will address all levels of voice over experience, from newcomers to mid-level and advanced professionals. For instance, a session will introduce voice over beginners to the voice over business. Advanced professionals will receive advanced voice acting and home studio production training. And all career levels will learn essential business, marketing, audio technical and voice acting techniques.
Special sessions will feature Pro-On-Pro interviews with top voice over professionals, and discussions will include “The Future of Voice Over,” “Voice Over: For Women Only” and a “Home Studio Experts Roundtable.”
In the virtual Voice Over Agents and Casting Directors Hall, participants can schedule private online career meetings with agents and casting directors, including evaluations of their voice over demos, which are key marketing tools for obtaining voice over jobs.
Access to on-demand recordings of all sessions will be available to registrants until November 30, 2013, which makes the entire event customizable for participants to enjoy according to their own personal schedule.
According to Voice Over Virtual emcee Dave Courvoisier, conference attendees will have access to:
– A VoicePlex Theater, where four view screens list tracks and links to educational presentations hosted by more than 50 of the industry’s leading professionals. Each presenter’s Meeting Room will offer opportunities for additional info, including real-time text chats and Q&A sessions.
