The Professional Invitational features a different guest from the voice over industry each time it's offered. 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 the audience. Finally, 15 students will read commercial copy and receive feedback from our guest.
You can attend next Wednesday's Professional Invitational one of two ways:
There are 15 standard spaces available, which gives you the opportunity to read for and receive feedback from our guest.
There are also 15 'audit' spaces for students who wish to attend the lecture without reading copy during the final part of class - which is a great way to learn about the industry if you're just starting out!
