The Conversational Read

Wednesday, December 6 7:00pm-9:30pm EST



“There was an unbelievable difference in my reads after learning this!”   Learn proven techniques that unlock your conversational read in this 2.5 hour masterclass with voiceover coach, director, and 2023 OneVoice Award nominee, Hugh P. Klitzke.

You already know that most every voiceover direction says: “be conversational”.

But how can you get there?

In this constructive, growth-minded class, you will learn:

  • How a particular point of view can lead you to an authentic read – no matter how well written the script is

  • How smile can help (and when it doesn’t)

  • To understand script structures – if you’re unsure what these are, this will be an “ah-ha” moment.

  • How body language, energy, vocal placement and speed play a major role in generating a conversational read.

This above will also help your conversational read have:

  • Authenticity

  • A subtle specificity

  • And a richer emotional life

How the class will work:

BEFORE the class, a maximum of 12 participants will be emailed instructions for sending an audio file of an audition that Hugh will be reviewing in class. By working with Hugh one-on-one, hearing his feedback, and observing other students, you’ll be able to lear practical tools for making your reads more conversational that you can put to use in your next audition!
