Tell us if this sounds familiar to you: You get a voice over audition script, you start saying it out loud - which is beneficial for pronunciations and timing - but you’re mainly saying it out loud because you want to know how it sounds. You want to listen to how you sound saying the words.
However, it’s not about your sound. Audition script specs are continually asking for real voices, and it’s difficult to access something real by focusing solely on how you sound.
In order to change this habit of reading for sound, you must learn to how pick up the script and read it for content. The first thing you ask is “Who buys this product? Who sells this product? Are they the same person? And therefore which one am I?" And with that information you make specific, focused, smart choices about the script and how to promote it.
In our Script Analysis class, you will learn this and many other skills and that above all: VOICE FOLLOWS CHOICE. The change it will produce in you as a voice actor and performer will be illuminating and will last throughout your career.
