"YOU'RE ON THE AIR!" HOW TO REALLY MAKE IT IN VOICE-OVERS
Voice-overs are hot today! You don't have to be an actor to get voice-over work, but it certainly doesn't hurt. With such notable talent as Morgan Freeman, Glenn Close, and Alec Baldwin lending their voices to commercials, films, and videos, one would think that it would be next to impossible to break into this field. Not so! In this class you'll learn about an exciting new way to get around the competition and actually turn voice-overs into a thriving full or part-time business.
