Director: Jim Edgar
Length: 18-hour six-week workshop
Class Notes: Prerequisite: Students must understand basic computer commands such as Cut, Copy, Paste, Save, Save As, Undo/Redo, etc. Students must have home recording capabilities.
In a voice-over industry full of remote live direction and where auditions are predominantly done at home, the opportunity to break into the business is as ripe as ever. And while being a well-trained, skilled actor will always be paramount, so now is having a professional-grade home studio. But don’t fret, that does not mean spending thousands of dollars or being a genius engineer, but you do need to be educated. Join Jim as he takes you through the basic fundamentals of home recording including recording hardware and software, editing conventions, exporting sound files along with suggestions for a basic set-up if you don’t already have one. By the end of this factually jam-packed workshop, you will know how to record, edit and submit an mp3 of sufficient quality so you can start getting in on all those super cool, advanced Voicetrax classes that require home recording capabilities. And JUST when you think the story is over, it’s time to put what you’ve learned with Jim to good use, as Chuck will finish the last two weeks of the class listening to scripts you’ve recorded at home. He’ll not only give you succinct feedback on your acting performance but will also comment on your new and improved “Edgar-ized” sound quality.
