Our first ever Teens/Tweens Combo Commercial Class covering On Camera and Voice Over for young actors 9-17!!!
First half:
" ...She has a great personality for teaching and I particularly liked the little tidbits of advice throughout the class. Thanks! " dm

Professional Voice Actor Laurie Burke is currently in her 7th year as a TV and Voice Over Host for Common Sense Media, a company dedicated to helping kids thrive in the world of media. The wonderful field of Voice Acting has seen a huge growth in the demand for young, fresh, authentic voices in the industry. Trained Teens and kids are being sought out to do vo work for everything from cartoons to animated TV shows, films, commercials and audio books. In this half, Laurie will cover reading scripts, how the Voice Over audition process really works, how to record and deliver a script, landing agents and actual mic time!! This class will also explore overcoming shyness and stage fright and how to put passion into words to make a character or script and most importantly, how to HAVE FUN in the creative process!

Second Half:
All about On Camera commercials with Melinda Darlington-Bach!

" My daughter comes away from each class with restored confidence and new knowledge that she didn't have before. " Lisa C. "

As a model/talent scout for 16 years for Stars Agency and Management, Melinda has personally facilitated helping over 85 of her students get signed by agents. This half will feature current, age appropriate commercial scripts, how to give the best slate and how to handle the slate interview question. All copy will be videotaped and reviewed in class with feedback and adjustments. What does your child need to do to get the callback and then book the job? With her vast experience, Melinda has a clear understanding of the specific needs for the Bay Area market. We are limiting the class size and it tends to sell out fast!
