Lau Lapides, BOSS agent of MCVO (and Anne's current co-host) connected with the Peeps this December!
As an agent and a coach, Lau is passionate about voice actor education and training to help motivate and inspire talent. She knows that voiceover can be lonely and uses educational opportunities to help connect the VO community. Lau showed us how to research a product, figure out what the script means to us, and how to give the customer and casting director what they want in a read.

Peeps Are Saying:
Hi Lau and Anne,
Just wanted to say Thank You for last night’s workout. Even though I didn’t read and was there as a Fly-On-The-Wall, I learned so much. I took TWO full pages of single spaced notes! I really appreciate the focus on ‘acting’ and not just ‘voicing’. All real-world information and inspiration.
Thoroughly enjoying the BOSS podcast series and coming away with so much that is both applicable to my day-to-day as a VO, but also gives me lots to ponder as I go through my day.
I’m so grateful to be a VIPeep, to continue to work with Anne for over six years and to proudly say that Lau is MY Agent #1 and has been for since June of 2021!
Happy Holidays to all of you.
