Our Next Special Guest Has Been Revealed!!!
We are excited to announce our special guest for the final Professional Invitational class of 2019!
John Kovacevich, executive creative director at Duncan Channon, will be here at Voice One to answer your questions and offer feedback on your reads!
John Kovacevich is executive creative director at San Francisco advertising agency Duncan Channon. Over the last decade, he’s created ad campaigns for everything from cars to cat food, pants to pretzels, hamburgers to HR software (plus other less alliterative categories.)
He spent many years as an actor in the Bay Area, especially in San Francisco’s improv and sketch comedy scene, performing with groups like BATS Improv and Killing My Lobster. You, of course, recognize him from his pivotal role as Young Executive #2 in the “The Pursuit of Happyness.”
His time on both sides of the casting table gives him great empathy for actors and makes him want to demystify what goes on behind the scenes. He’s written a number of articles for actors to help them understand how to nail an audition, what goes on in the room after they leave, and how casting decisions are really made.
At our Professional Invitational classes, you'll meet writers, directors, producers, and advertising professionals who hire voice talent. You'll hear their perspectives on the industry, read copy, receive direction, and get to ask the questions that you've been dying to have answered during Q&A.
Spaces for this class will go very fast (and it's already half full), so sign up right away to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to meet and read for John.
Once you've registered, take a look at his "Six Audition Tips for Voice Over Actors" to help get ready to perform in front of him on mic!
Starting in just a few weeks, this class is the perfect class for beginning and intermediate voice actors.
