Voiceover Demo Coaching

Your voiceover demo is your most important marketing tool.

Audio engineer and studio time is expensive.  Often, the audio engineer can help with a little direction during a session. However, the engineer’s job is to record your reads and edit the best clips together with appropriate music and sound effects — not necessarily to direct your work.  Some talent find it helpful to include a coach in the demo production process.

Services that I offer:

Demo critiques (in person or via e-mail)
Copy selection advice (in person or via e-mail)
Coordinating the schedule with the audio engineer
In studio coaching at the recording studio of your choice
Post-recording critique and suggestions for the final version of your voiceover demo.

A la carte: $100 per hour
Full demo coaching package – all of the above services to culminate in your finished commercial and narrative demo: $350
(Does not include audio engineer’s fees.)

Here are some of the demos I coached in 2010.  (Since 2010, I have coached several voice talent on the NUTS, ltd. exclusive voiceover talent roster.)  I assisted with copy selection and participated in the recording sessions. (Please note: These talent have previous acting, performing and/or voiceover experience. I cannot guarantee that your demo will be comparable in quality.  The success of your voiceover demo will be based largely on your voice, talent, experience and training. If I don’t feel you’re ready to record a demo, I may advise you to wait until you have more experience.)
