Every professional voice actor knows that your demo is your calling card, and the tool that you need in order to book work and develop relationships with clients. It needs to be polished, well rehearsed, and professionally produced, and able to meet the high standards of this dynamic industry.
A Voice Over Demo Record package at Edge Studio consists of an education consultation, one demo prep session, one demo record session, and one professionally produced demo (including editing, sound design, and mixing). We highly recommend that you purchase private coaching sessions prior to recording to ensure that your VO skills are as strong as possible for an optimal demo experience.
This package at Edge Studio consists of:
Careful planning now will result in a more marketable voice over demo and a fruitful career down the road. When you sign up for the Demo Record Package, an Education Advisor will set up an introductory phone call with you to discuss your voice over goals and gather information to help set you up for success. Edge Studio will pair you with a coach who you will meet with in your prep session and who will direct your demo recording session.
Demo Prep Session
In the demo prep session, you will come prepared with a set of scripts to present for your coach. This is a time for you to read all the copy to your coach, and for them to review it. Together, you’ll confirm that the length of the copy is appropriate for your demo, that it offers the right amount of variety (based on your goals and strengths), that the scripts you choose will help you be marketable, and – most importantly – that you’re comfortable with it. If all is good, then move to the demo record phase. If not, recommendations will be made and changes will be enacted prior to you moving on to recording your demo.
Your coach will direct you during your recording session. Either record in person at our NYC studio location or at our partner studio in Los Angeles (recording in these locations is included in the cost of the program), or record at an approved alternate studio anywhere in the world and your coach will direct you either in-person or remotely. Students are responsible for covering the cost of a studio rental, if not at one of Edge’s two recording locations. If unable to travel, you are welcome to record your demo in your own home studio.
Edit, Sound Design, & Mix
Edge Studio’s Engineering Team works to edit, sequence, process, mix, and master your demo under the supervision of Edge’s CEO, David Goldberg. It will be emailed to you for your review, and you and our Education Team will discuss any comments you may have. There are never additional fees for one round of reasonable revisions. We want you to feel comfortable and happy with your demo.
Edge Studio’s demos are top-notch quality, and you’ll walk away with a fantastic marketing tool to get your voice over career off the ground.
