Words of Wisdom

Don’t be afraid to be more expressive and fun, embrace your quirky voices, and don’t be afraid to go whackadoodle. - Mary Lynn Wissner
Real People aren’t supposed to sound like they have a script in front of them. They were doing their thing while a microphone picked that up. Make it sound like a snippet of your life. - Mary Lynn Wissner
Don’t plead in an authoritative read. In VO, you don’t need to plead. You’re the only one talking. So just say it. - Mary Lynn Wissner

What Peeps are Saying ...

"I Loved, Loved, LOVED the Commercial Workout with Mary Lynn Wissner! Not only did I gain valuable insight during MY read, but even more listening to others being coached! Mary Lynn did something that I never expected…she asked us to pick a read that we would LEAST LIKE TO PERFORM. Mind blown! Normally, we always choose something that we are comfortable with to put our best foot forward. This curveball, however, was so special! We got to really challenge ourselves and step outside of our comfort zone! Thank you!!!!!"

The experience was nothing short of transformative, and I can't help but share my enthusiasm. The atmosphere was charged with positive energy and a genuine passion for the craft. The instructors were not only experts in the field but also incredibly approachable, creating a warm and welcoming environment that immediately put everyone at ease. What stood out the most was the personalized feedback and invaluable tricks of the trade that were generously shared. The instructors didn't just stick to the basics; they delved into the nuances of voice acting for commercials, providing insights and techniques that I had never considered before. One of the highlights was the constructive feedback sessions. The instructors took the time to work individually with each participant, offering tailored advice to enhance our strengths and address specific areas for improvement. This personalized attention made a world of difference, and I left with a clear understanding of how to refine my skills and make my voice truly stand out in the competitive world of voice-over work. The workshop was incredibly well-structured, covering everything from script interpretation to vocal modulation and delivery techniques. The pacing was perfect – it was intensive yet digestible, ensuring that every participant could absorb and apply the lessons effectively. What amazed me most was how much ground we covered in such a short amount of time. The workshop was a treasure trove of insider tips and tricks that I know will elevate my voice-over game to new heights. I left with a renewed sense of confidence and a toolbox of techniques that I can immediately apply to my work. If you're serious about pursuing a career in voice-over or simply want to refine your skills, I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop. It's an investment in yourself and your passion, and the returns are priceless. Thank you to the incredible team for sharing your expertise and making this workshop an unforgettable experience!
