Political Commercial VO with J Michael Collins!
Learn about the blazing hot world of political commercial voiceover!
Almost TEN BILLION DOLLARS was spent on political advertising in the 2016 campaign, and a substantial portion of that was paid out to voice actors. For the first time in political VO history, the amount of work increased during a non-election-year in 2017. 2018 is likely to be the most lucrative season in political VO history, and 2019 will likely be even stronger as the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election begins. This class will teach you how to make your mark in political voiceover, and earn your share of the massive political VO pie!
J. Michael Collins has voiced commercials for both major parties and hundreds of candidates from local races to presidential campaigns over his long career as a voice actor.
