For over 25 years, Mary Lynn Wissner, award winning Casting Director and founder of Voices Voicecasting, has been hearing and casting the perfect voices for thousands of TV, radio, animation, film, games, virtual reality, industrials, podcasts, documentaries, toys, e-Learning, IVR, audiobooks, promos, events and dubbing productions.
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 next 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.
