Work with acclaimed all-around voice actor and director Joe Ochman!
This class is all about getting out of your head and diving in to your VO roles. No homework necessary. You'll be reading copy picked for you in the moment based on a genre - any genre - you choose and a challenge you feel you have in your work. You'll "find your easy" - a simpler way to vault past that challenge. Or you may just find out that you don't have that challenge at all! You were just in your head.
