You talking to VOWOL?

3 things:
Thursday 14th -- (Voice Over Yoga) Wendy O. will spend less than 10 minutes to transform your breathing and give you instantly applicable tips for relaxation while in the booth. Then we'll work tons of copy, with her guidance in the background. This class was a hit the last time, and people are still talking about it -- a real honor to have Wendy O. come back and join us. There are spaces available: and sign up, or call or email:
310-439-9036 or

There is another voice over workout on the West Side happening Wednesdays with Bill Ackerman. Please email me for details -- I'm planning on going as often as possible!

Finally, Mari Weiss, one of our most frequent guests, is giving VOWOL 10% off her upcoming intensive:
Mari Weiss One-Day Voice Intensive
Sunday August 24th, 2008
10am to 4pm
This one-day workshop puts you in the studio with tons of copy and a working professional who wants you to find your strengths, your range, YOUR voice. If you are new to voice-over, you will learn mic techniques and get a feel for what's it like being in the booth. If you are not so new but not booking, here's a chance to really play and learn another way to approach copy and your reads.

We will work on commercial scripts that include announcer spots, dialogue, character stuff and those pesky tag lines! There will be a 1/2 hour break for lunch that I will provide so all you need to bring is writing material for taking notes, questions you might have about VO and a willingness to play while working hard.

Mari is a William Morris talent and has been a working voice actor for over 17 years. She's done hundreds of commercials on radio and TV, including campaigns for McDonald's and Public Storage right now. Her promo work includes ABC and the Oxygen network. Animation credits include Happy Feet, HBO's Crashbox, Duckman and many others.

"I started booking in VO when I really started using MY voice – my point of view, my personality – not what I THOUGHT a voice over should sound like. Once I found that I could play and stretch freely, tapping the endless resources of crazy voices in my head for financial gain!" M. Weiss

Cost: $160 (includes lunch & copies of your work)
