This is a great opportunity to meet writers, directors, producers, and advertising professionals who hire voice talent. Hear their perspectives on the industry, read copy, and receive direction. There’s a different guest each time.
There are 15 performer spaces for students who want to read for our guest and receive feedback, and 15 additional 'auditor' spaces for students who wish to attend the interview and Q&A without performing, which can be a great option if you're just starting out.
Level: Professional (see FAQ for details)
Auditor Prerequisite: None! All students are welcome and encouraged to attend as auditors.
