Students get a large packet of scripts (60-80 pages) from all different genres: commercial, narration and character. They then choose or are assigned which scripts to read in class. They get one read at the mic, a quick directorial adjustment, another read and then they sit down. Because of the fast pace, everyone in class will get to read lots and lots of copy, with not a lot of time for prep. Sally also likes to throw in some curve balls, keeping you on your toes.
We asked Sharon Lin, Voice One alum and working voice over actor, to tell us why Copy Intensive is one of her favorite classes:
“You get a chance to go through lots of different types of copy kinda quickly to refresh and review different styles and get feedback. Because it’s so intense, it puts it all together. It’s similar to VO Bootcamp, but without the pressure of being in front of an agent – and Sally makes it really fun and educational! By contrast, if you've been focusing on a particular style, this puts it together and kind of tests whether you really know the different styles.”
