Nail Your Self Tape Auditions! - Weekend Online Course: April 25/26th: 12pm - 3pm

Mastering Self Tapes for KIDS: An Audition Intensive

ages 10 – 12yrs 

Are you/your child itching to book more work through self tapes but you’re not quite sure what you’re doing? ​Is your confidence shaky every time you submit your audition?  ​Are you driving yourself crazy wondering what casting wants? ​or feeling helpless because there is no director to work with?
This course has your name on it if you’ve struggled with any of this. 
We’ve designed it to increase both your influence and your income by ​nailing your​ self tape auditions​. ​
Space is limited so please contact Sunday Muse after you sign up below @ 
 
​We are taking this course live on Zoom with Sunday Muse directing you each day in a group setting, where you can see and hear everyone and we have room for only 10 participants. 
​Mastering Self Tapes Intensive is for those kids who ​already know the audition process ​and want to​ take it to a whole new level​ or for those who have done training with Great Big Voices.
 
“I learned a ton and had a blast! Sunday is the Voice Over Guru.” 

Keir Gilchrist – Family Guy & Atypical (Netflix)

 

Topics Covered:

Improv to Improve

Messy is better than perfect punctuation

Beginnings and Endings of lines

Find the meaning in what you are saying

Taking risks to find connection to the story

Music as an entry point to your audition copy

On your mic, get set, GO!

Each day we will work on:

  • What holds you back from booking, and working through your blocks – By working with me, you will experience a huge shift in your reads and a clear direct knowing of how to approach your auditions from here on in. 
  • Audition copy: Each participant reads and is given feedback from a casting P.O.V. – You will gain a specific self empowering approach to each self tape audition so that you are not wasting your time trying to figure out what ‘casting’ wants to hear.
  • Freeing up the voice, beginnings, ends, contrast, color in the voice & discovering how to use your sound/vocal instincts to create an authentic read – These are the key essential elements in booking the job. You will learn how to master all of them.
  • Learning simple and effective Audition Preparation – Your energy matters! 75% of voice actors are recording at low energy vocal levels and they sound flat..If you are taping, you must learn what it means to bring energy and connection to your read, before you start recording your audition.
  • Making the lines your own – You will quickly break through the blocks in your script reads, busting bad habits, and bringing life, humor and joy to every single self tape audition you do.
  • ‘Mastering Self Tapes’ – is an Audition Intensive that teaches you how to take your auditions from good to booking the job. 

Here’s how it works: ​

Saturday April 25th – Sunday April 26th
