Let's have a fun and fabulous workout getting down and dirty with detailed commercial direction and individual feedback on your delivery from start to finish. We will focus on getting focused and conquering your fears and ultimately offering a bold and incisive delivery from the origins of breath, to vocalics and speech clarity, to character development and nailing the "real" in your read...let's go! The challenge is to audition with 100% creative freedom and while creating a structured approach to your work encouraging a daily discipline of habit and technique. Repeatability is the name of the game while being directed in both concrete and abstract nuances. Bottom line: Get really good at what you love while building a soundscape of messaging, mindset, and madness
