When we hit on a format that works, we have no shame in going back to the well and “gently petting that alive-and-kicking horse” (Get it? We’re lovers, not fighters). Our troubles emerged when we were trying to decide which genre we should develop for class: characters or narration, narration or characters? Finally, a member of the legen-wait for it-dary Voicetrax Think Tank said, “ummm… why don’t we just do both?” Brilliant! Format refresher: During these two separate information-packed (and when we say packed, we mean stuffed to the rafters and beyond) workshops you’ll explore what you do well and what you should do well, and therefore what you should continue to focus on in your training. For a narration demo showing range is the key. For a character demo what are the most common archetypes that you need to include in a professional demo? In these eye-opening classes you’ll develop a clear understanding of the demo production process and discover what your strengths are and how to highlight them in a way that will grab the attention of agents and producers, as well as common mistakes to avoid. By the last week of class, students will have produced, performed, self-directed and packaged their own mock demo. But most importantly, these workshops break down into a major self-direction exploration.
