Here’s how it goes…

This is an amazing opportunity to get great ideas for your own studio! It’s a gathering of voice actors who learn from each other.  Some have home studios. Some are in the process of putting one together.

It’s simple-

  1. Moments before the event begins, click into the Zoom meet (button above).
  2. Two previously selected volunteers will give a tour of their studio, simply using the camera on their phone or laptop.
  3. And everyone shares ideas and suggestions. Or just observe – that’s also totally fine!

It’s informal, easy, fun, and most importantly helpful.  Join us!

Want to give a tour of your studio?

Showcasing your studio results in free promotion for you and fabulous help for the community!

Simply send a few photos of your studio to: [email protected], with the subject line “Please showcase my home studio!”.

Then we’ll get in touch.

Here’s what people say:

“I definitely find them very intriguing, even more so than I originally anticipated.”

“It’s fascinating seeing the wide range of setups that people put together and make work for them, and how you can’t really judge a studio’s quality by it’s look.”

“I really like the human element of not only seeing the actors in their home studio environments, but the way that you and Siobhan keep it very relaxed, informal and engaging by getting them talking about their work focus, experience, and career/life stories.”

“It’s SO cool seeing inside voice actor’s studios – I got great ideas! Thank you!!”

What people are saying about
Home Studio Show & Tell

 

-“This is so fantastic – thank you for putting this together and for everyone who shared their space. It’s great to see the range of what is working for people.”

-“Very informative on a number of levels. I’m not voice acting yet, but I like to be informed before I ad lib!!!” Will L.

-“It was great showing my fellow emerging voice artists what’s possible when you’re building your first DIY home studio.” Dale S.

-“I just want you to know how much I appreciate the Home Studio shows.  It is so inspiring to see how individual VO people solve their specific issues, and make the most of the space they have.  This last session gave me some ideas for sound treatment that my wife might actually be able to tolerate!” Tim G.

-“I continue to be amazed at the creativity and  resourcefulness of these VO artists.  That amazement has turned into motivation…. I see how people don’t wait for their space to be ‘perfect’, or ‘look’ like a professional recording space.  So, I now just step into my 3×5 coat closet near the front door, imbed the mic stand in the middle of all the coats, close the door, and turn on a flashlight so I can read the script.  I can’t move at all with the coats there as the material makes way too much noise.  I leave the computer outside on a small table.  But, know what?  It Works…!! Tim G.
