Commercial Actor: On-Camera & Voice-Over Coaches
Seattle Voice-Over Meet-Up
Begun in 2015, Seattle Voice-Over Meetup is a group for both aspiring and experienced voice actors. Make connections with people who share your interest in doing vocal work for animation, video games, commercials, corporate narration, audio books, and every other aspect of voice-over.
Meets 2 to 3 times a month to network, share resources, practice, and learn from professionals working in the field as well as learn from one another. Expect regular guest speakers, DIY workshops, and even a few field trips.
Contact: Scott Burns.
Scott offers individual sessions either in his studio or via Skype which are structured to accommodate your particular desires. Enhanced auditioning, performance techniques and marketing tips top the list of services provided.

You will work with an engineer, learn proper microphone technique, studio etiquette, break down and analyze copy as well as gain insight on what is required to be successful in the voiceover industry.
