The Professional Invitational is a great opportunity to meet writers, directors, producers, and advertising professionals who hire voice talent. During the first hour, Sally interviews our guest about their background and perspectives on the industry, their creative process, and how they audition and select talent. Then we open the floor to attendee Q&A. Finally, our 15 'performer' attendees will read copy and receive feedback from our guest (we'll provide you with the copy).
We also have 15 additional 'auditor' spaces for students who wish to attend the interview and Q&A without performing during the final part of class, which can be a great option if you're just starting out.
Auditor Prerequisite: None! All students are welcome and encouraged to attend as auditors.
