It’s common knowledge to most that have been around the voice-over industry for even a minute that self-direction is the name of the game when it comes to home auditioning, especially with the popularity of numerous online casting sites. These days you are pretty much on your own to create an attention-grabbing, competitive audition which can be a very isolating experience. But you’re not alone! You’ll be put through the paces of directing yourself as you pre-record scripts at home. Over the weekend, The Lovely Ladies of Voicetrax, Samantha and Vicki will provide feedback for your home recordings and take you through live performances of commercial and narration scripts obtained exclusively from online casting sites that give aspiring working voice actors a monumental opportunity to stretch, grow and book jobs on the way to signing with an agent. You may even find yourself sitting in the director’s chair where you’ll realize that by having to articulate a clear analysis of a script as a director for your classmates, you will gain confidence in your ability to break it down for yourself when you have to, ‘cuz as a working voice actor, you’re gonna have to!
