About this Workshop:
Longevity in a voiceover career is maintained by nurturing the sense of play that most likely brought you to this work in the first place. Learn to connect with that joy by finding personal connection -- no matter how small -- with characters. You will get the opopportunity to bring in a piece of copy you wish you enjoyed more. Something you know (or wish or hope) you can nail, or maybe just one you haven't quite found the fun in yet.
