FOR ASPIRING VOICE OVER PROFESSIONALS
ANALYSE REAL WORLD BRIEFS
DEVELOP PROFESSIONAL TECHNIQUES
RECORD VOICE SAMPLES

This practical online blended course, delivered by voice over agent Sarah Marecek, focuses on what makes great voice over recordings and highlights the difference between commercial, narrative and documentary style voices.

The course has a particular focus on unconventional voice over professionals who may have a background in acting, singing, rap or spoken word as there is a growing demand for less conventional voices in all forms of entertainment and marketing voice overs.

What are clients really looking for? How do voice over agencies excavate talent, mould it and repeatedly create high-quality voice over recordings?

No prior knowledge of voice over work or recordings is necessary and each participant on the course will end up with a selection of their own voice samples as a foundation to building a showreel.

“An amazing experience and such a great group!” – Scott Fleming, Actor & Voiceover Artist

“This course was such an amazing first step into voice-over work and offered so much that other workshops might not. We learnt so much about the industry and how to use different techniques. Sarah was the most knowledgeable and inspiring tutor and truly helped me find the essence of my voice.”
– Lola Ogunbiyi
