The Professional Ear - Virtual

Watch and listen to narrators from Rookie to Veteran elevating a script as they are directed by top industry producer/directors. Learn studio etiquette and how to make those adjustments under the pressure of working away from the comfort of your home studio with a director listening to your every word. Each performance will be followed by a discussion of what works, what doesn’t, and, well, it’s all a matter of opinion anyway...isn’t it?
