How to Audition Like A Champ!

Look, I hear a million auditions a day.  I know which ones suck, which are great and most importantly… which ones get booked.  I can also tell you how to make sure your auditions are in the latter categories.

Check out the details of the latest webinar coming up Wednesday, August 15th though Xtra HERE.

I’ll be candid and honest and awesome as usual and will give you an agents perspective on how to, you know, get work.  There is no way you will leave this thing without completely rethinking the way you have been auditioning.  Heavy.

A little something to get you psyched up:

Too Cool For School

I am pleased to announce that I will soon begin teaching courses at the world renowned Edge Studio in New York City.  These guys run a top notch studio that has been around for over 20 years, they are beyond professional, they are honest and now they have me.  High fives and back slapping all around are certainly in order.  David and his staff know the voice over1 industry inside and out so it is an honor.  From their site:

I like to think that my students will be city kids who maybe have a tough exterior but just need someone to believe in them.  At times I may not think it is worth it, that I’m not really reaching them, but somehow we find common ground and I gain their respect.  In the end we all learn a little bit about life, love and the power of perseverance.

1. Voiceover?  Voice-over?  Really, I need some closure on this one.
2. Do I have to spell everything out for you?
