April 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Take Your Skills to the Next Level
with Elaine Clark
Saturday, May  14th, 2011

Do you know how to consistently make strong, believable choices that book you the job and make the listener feel and take action? Script analysis, technique, emotion and subtext are key elements in voice acting. This class will help you make competitive choices as you learn how to add depth, truth, emotion and believability to commercials and narrations. Using new lessons from the upcoming 3rd edition of her best-selling book, There's Money Where Your Mouth Is, students will be challenged to perform like a pro, a reason why Elaine is one of the most well respected and busiest voice-over instructors in the country.

Elaine Clark is an award winning actor, director, producer, certified teacher, playwright and author and owner/founder of the highly respected Voice One actor's training studio in San Francisco. Because of the intense one-on-one nature of Elaine's program registration is strictly limited. Please sign up early to insure your seat.


You can either pay for Elaine's session in full for $400 or reserve your spot for a $100 down payment.  If you choose to make a down payment - the balance is due TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE WORKSHOP.

The Long Haul
with Harlan Hogan
Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Winning an occasional audition is nice. A winning career over the long haul is the ultimate.
"Voice Over success requires talent, ambition, business and marketing skills and that is reality."


•   What you must know - what you must do - now.
•   The four C's. Four seminal changes in voice over work.
•   Defining today's new voice actor paradigm.
•   Discovering voice venues - the work of getting the work.
•   Situation & Strategy - the E-Myth & SWOT.
•   The business of show business, and when & if you should join a union.
•   Ruthless & Relentless Promotion, the new rules of PR and Publicity.
•   Demos & auditions - going beyond the hackneyed to relevance.
•   Acquiring & keeping Agents.
•   Harnessing the power & promise of the Internet.
•   Your home & on-the road studio - what you don't need is more important than what you do!

Once each year Harlan Hogan shares the lessons he's learned from 34 successful years as a full-time voice over professional with a small group of performers in Washington D.C.
His goal is simple: to help you build your own career based not on dreams and wishes but on marketing savvy, current information, trends and markets and a new business model.

Nobody – including Harlan – builds a career spanning decades, by looking backwards and longing for the good old days. His singular success - in his considered opinion - is not his exceptional voice talent. Instead, it's been his ability to look ahead, anticipating what the next sound/style and voice market will be - and then relentlessly and ruthlessly pursuing that work with aggressive and strategic: Marketing.

Fair warning: this not a sit back and listen seminar! It's a learn-by-doing, real-deal, put the concepts into action event.

Not how it was – how it's going to be.

And how you can become part of the next generation of voice over workers.

Harlan is the author of two best-selling books on voice over: The Voice Actor's Guide to Recording at home and on the Road with Jeffrey Fisher and VO: Tales and Techniques of a Voice Over Actor. Just a few of the famous slogans he has voiced include: "Raid kills bugs fast, kills bugs dead" "When you care enough to send the very best." "Thick, rich Heinz catsup; good things come to those who wait." and the quintessential "It's the cereal even Mikey likes!" He’s heard nightly thanking you for your generous contribution to this PBS station and has helped thousands of politicians including several presidents. Harlan is also known for his Porta-Booth® audio studios and the only voice over microphone designed by a voice over, for voice overs, his VO: 1-A microphone.


You can pay for Harlan's session in full for $400 or reserve your spot for a $100 down payment.  If you choose to make a down payment - the balance is due TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE WORKSHOP.
