Audition-Ready Audio with Jim Edgar

You have your studio gear - but simply owning good equipment is no guarantee that your sound is competitive. How do you know if it is any good? Poor quality audio gets deleted, and generally, no one will tell you if it sounds bad. In this 2-week workshop, you’ll start by sending a current recording for detailed evaluation, receive specific feedback and areas to address, and gain a clear understanding of what makes “audition ready audio.”

Handouts and resources supplied.

Prerequisites: recording equipment required, recording homework will be assigned | April 21 & 28 • Two Thursdays • 6:30-9:30pm PDT

Saturday, April 23 — Professional • online

Looping Like a Pro with Holly Dorff

Video Games, Anime, Cartoons, Films, and TV shows need professional voice actors who can add background voices and dialogue to on-screen actors and characters.
