The Audiobook Performance Mastery Weekend

Hey, there!

Short and sweet today: I am SO excited.

In December, I’m going to be leading a select group of talent in audiobook narration skill-building and in upping their game in performance.

And you can be one of those select talent! Here’s the skinny.

Many of you know that I not only teach voice over with the VO2GoGo curriculum, but I also have taught a class for the last three years, with my buddy, Dan O’Day, called the ACX Master Class.

We’ve got something very special planned for the weekend of December 10th and 11th here in LA.

hilton-lobbyIt’s called Audiobook Performance Mastery, and it’s a weekend event for professional audiobook narrators of all levels. It will be live at the Hilton LAX hotel, and if you want to attend, you’ll have to sign up soon, as space is limited and our ACX Master Class Students get first dibs.

(By the way, if you’re an ACX Master Class graduate, and also get this newsletter, check your email inbox for special discount – don’t just sign up from the links above or below – you’ll want to use the coupon code you got from Dan.)

You know, when I first started doing audiobooks, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I knew VO in general, and I tried my best, and people liked what I did despite my being new to the audiobook world.

But…at some point, after a couple of books (this was in the early 90’s), something clicked. I learned what was working for the books I was narrating and what wasn’t.

By doing more of what worked, and less of what didn’t, I got a lot better at the work. I had a feeling of…mastery.

I want everyone that attends Audiobook Performance Mastery to feel that special moment of ‘I’ve got this.” That moment of mastery, when you go from a student of the craft to having a skill you can draw upon at any time to create great audiobooks.

Dan and I have a great weekend planned for you, and it’s not about a lot of us talking at you: you’ll be up on stage, honing your skills, gaining new abilities, making better choices and slowly getting that feeling of mastery of the craft. Learning what works, and just as importantly, what doesn’t.

Success means doing more of what works and less of what doesn’t. I’d love to help you be successful, and feel that moment of mastery.

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!

    …too good…not togaed.
    The one time spell check didn’t work!
