Final classes added for 2019

We have added the final set of classes to our class schedule for 2019. Since Thanksgiving is late in November this year, there won't be anything happening in the month of December

Wednesday October 2nd starts the Beginning/Intermediate Commercial Voiceover. Class is from 7:00 to 10:00 PM for 4-weeks. This was already mentioned and there are still a few spots in this class. This will be last full commercial class of the year.

The October 5th Animation is full, so we have added an Animation class starting Wednesday October 30th from 7:00 to 10:00 PM.

And last is an advanced workout group with Susan Palyo. In place of a dedicated longer advanced class Susan is going to do a 3 week advanced workout group where you can dig deeper into any weaknesses and get additional practice on anything you want. Susan will help guide everyone to improve your skills. This has been very popular so grab your spot now.

All of these classes are available for sign-up at

Thanksgiving Week 2018 studio availability

Wishing all those who are traveling the week of Thanksgiving and happy and safe holiday. Those who are staying in town or traveling here for the week, we will be open regular hours through Wednesday November 21st. We will then be closed Thursday through Sunday and enjoy a little downtime ourselves before the final push of retail season.

So we will be around for any last minute Black Friday/Cyber Monday ads, auditions, or anything else that needs to be recorded next week.

Holiday Schedule 2017

Happy Holidays everyone. As the year is coming to a close we will be adjusting our schedule during the last week of 2017 ( as most people are).

Happier in Hollywood Podcast

We have been having fun recording this podcast with these two wonderful TV writers. It launched a few weeks ago and is fun to listen to. They have some fun interviews and you get to hear a little inside info into what goes on in the writing room of network TV shows. It has been nice to hear some new perspectives and also tips to handling stresses that come along with working in the entertainment industry. Well worth checking out.

Audvisor - Short Advice Snippets

In browsing my news feed this morning I came across this app Audvisor. I haven't done a deep dive into it, but the first snippet of advice that I heard was less than 2 minutes and was a very simple advice about responding to a problem. It's aimed at business type advice, but since as a voice actor we are basically our own business these simple tips could come in from time to time. 

R.I.P Mr Spock

Over the weekend as I read numerous articles and saw news coverage of the passing of Leonard Nimoy, one caught my eye for two reasons. First, I thought the idea of so many people flocking to the digital version Vulcan was such a great remembrance. 

Second is because we have been thrilled to part of the recording for much of the in-game voiceover for Star Trek online and even more so to have recorded Leonard Nimoy's parts as referenced in this article. Reading this made me remember that day. It was just another day recording voiceover, but one that sits atop the list as memorable to have met Leonard Nimoy, if even so brief.
