This online school offers workshops, coaching and a rate guide that can help all of us. Have a camera ready in your studio -- these workshops are great networking.
Larry Hudson Voiceover Workouts
This is NOT COACHING (it is not a replacement for great coaching from a qualified coach). We are a group of dedicated voiceover artists that come together to work out and support one another. The intent for the Workouts is for us to continue to hone our skills and “BOOK”... that is, to continue to be or become great “BOOKERS”.
From the experience of those of us who have worked out together this way for over 4 years, it is clear we have created a special community to rely on. We share information with one another coaching tips we have received, jobs, technical advice and recommendation, all of it. We are clear that while receiving is a great thing, the power and growth comes from the giving as well, and this is that opportunity.
Here is Larry's full site-- he also teaches great Audacity classes.
