Cliff is an established Producer, Director, Audio Engineer, Editor, and Director of Talent Development for ACM's Automotive Division. “I've been in the production industry for over 40 years and pretty much recorded, produced, directed and edited just about anything & everything audio. My firm foundation in music has been instrumental (pun intended) in my success on the "other side of the glass".
Come meet this seasoned producer and hear how he and ACM recruit, train and prepare professional Voice Talent for automotive submissions to advertising agencies and dealerships nationwide. The automotive commercial style is a subset of retail that focuses solely on car sales. Cliff will cover national, regional, and local opportunities.
The Professional Invitational features a different guest each time. During the first hour, Sally interviews our guest about their background, creative process, and how they audition and select talent. Then we open the floor to questions from attendees. Finally, 15 students will read copy and receive feedback from our guest.
You can attend our Professional Invitational one of two ways:
• 15 standard spaces are available for normal attendance, which gives you the opportunity to read and receive feedback from our guest. These spots will go fast!
• 15 audit spaces are also available for students who wish to attend without performing during the final part of class - a great way to learn about the industry regardless of your experience level.
