Instructor Dyane Filip's skillful voice can be heard in film and TV work, and in dozens of national commercials for the likes of McDonalds, Head & Shoulders, and Raisin Bran. She is passionate about teaching and has guided voice actors for decades, both in classes and as an on-set coach. Ms. Filip is the only woman to have performed as the Public-Address Announcer for the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Ask anyone who has worked with Ms. Filip in New York, LA, Chicago, or Denver, and they'll tell you: Dyane will help you find the best and the most fun way to do voice acting work.
Learn to Record from Home! Voice Over Artists do their recording almost entirely from their home studios. This class will also be conducted remotely, on Zoom! (The log-in link will be sent to you after you register, before your first class.)
You will need a computer with a camera and a microphone, and a reliable internet connection.
You may already have a microphone, or headset with a microphone, that will be adequate for the purposes of this Intro to Voice Over class. Your instructor will assess your microphone during the first class and let you know if you need something better / clearer. If you do need a different mic, we can recommend some that are reasonably priced.
We can't wait to help you explore the world of Voice Over!
--> Please note this class is 100% remote learning on Zoom. This is in the best interest of anyone interested in actually doing voice overs, as you will need to know how to record yourself with your own equipment.
--> Be sure to check your schedule carefully before enrolling, as there are no refunds issued under any circumstances.
