VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS
I am relentlessly passionate whether voicing, writing, researching or meeting not just an icon but a childhood hero-yes Lily is as down to earth as she is a badass human. Just the extra topping on a big Gotham City slice of an event.
A 2 day mind blowing extravaganza of learning, play and community held at On The Mic Training. Classes by 2 of the most talented and giving coaches and performers in the Voiceover industry. Tasia Valenza and Brent Allen Hagel. No genre was left untried-Narration, Animation, promo, Trailer, Commercial- everything was covered. The advice and information regarding agents, home studio do's/don'ts was given generously. The whole weekend was arranged and set up by a talented, selfless voice and on camera actor James Jenkins of What's Your Story Vancouver. Everyone who took part represented all levels of training and have all said they can't wait for it to happen again.
THAT'S VOICEOVER 2018
Each year the event is held on one coast or the other and this year it was LA in sunny California. Created and hosted by the force of nature that is Joan Baker, it quickly launched into what casting Directors are looking for with the powerhouse Sound & Fury casting, Disney and J B Blanc. Nancy Cartwright blew everyone away with her wisdom, humor and generosity of spirit. Coaches corner and Million Dollar Voices where we were enthralled with the straight talking nuggets from Tasia Valenza, Gwendolyn Yeo, Kimberly Brooks and others. Add in Bob Bergen and the amazing Phil Lamarr. Of course you can't talk about the event without mentioning one of my favourites- Speed Dating with Your Demo. Here you get to sit down with 30 of the top agents, directors and producers in the VO world and have them critique your demos. After all of that you needed to unwind with the meet and greet after party. If you get a chance to go I highly recommend it.
The Time is Now.
Speak up. Act Up. If you're just 1 person or part of a group, you are not alone.
The world-animals, plants, children, nature and historical stories need you.
I am here to tell those stories, mine and yours.
Inspired by stories of survival and bravery and driven by the unwavering need to not let the truth be buried under the weight of hashtags and over-saturated social media.
The Time is Now.
VANCOUVER VOICEOVER INTENSIVE

5 years now and going full steam ahead, this event put on by The Voiceover Network just keeps topping itself year after year.

The only event for voiceover actors of video games. Actors, producers, casting agents and game devs all show up and share their knowledge.
