11.04.19 Advanced Commercials: Roger Scott & Guest Directors

This six week, advanced level class, taught by Roger Scott, will feature intensive character creation work, using humorous material. 

You'll exit this class with 5-10 characters in your voiceover arsenal, to us as prototypes for future copy.  You'll be amazed and astounded -- at yourself!  But wait, there's more! You'll also be guided by two high-profile, working casting directors, who will put you through your voiceover paces and also talk turkey on the voiceover industry. 

Guest Director Lisa Orkin is the Creative Director of The Radio Ranch and has written, produced, directed and voiced thousands of commercials over the last 15 years. Lisa started as actress and comedian 25 years, she has guest-starred in sitcoms and was a featured lead in many TV commercials. Lisa teaches people how their use their own point view to book jobs, using a combo of radio ranch scripts and improv to help actors sound like whatever piece of copy they read sounds it like it was written just for them.

Guest Director Amy McInerney is both casting director & main booth director for Elaine Craig Casting & divides her talents as a booth director at one of L.A.'s top VO agencies.  Tough, honest guidance from one of the best in the biz!

Class consists of 10-12 students.
