For those interested in breaking into voiceover, there has never been a better time to do so. Home studio sessions are now the default for the voiceover industry and you’ll need a viable home recording setup in order to be considered for jobs by ad agencies, casting directors and talent agents. And for those interested in audiobook narration, a professional-sounding home environment is mandatory for work in the time of Covid-restrictions.
The requirements of home studio set-ups are discussed; we’ll consider cost-effective measures and dealing with physical set-up constraints, as well as recording equipment and the relevant hardware and software for recording professional-sounding auditions and jobs from home.
This session is highly recommended for anyone just starting out in voiceover and for those considering additional voiceover courses.
No special equipment needed for this session.
