Frequently Asked Questions

DEMOS

Can I record my demo without private coaching?


Making a demo is a unique and specialized process. We select, write and craft spots that are specific to you. The private coaching session lets our directors work with you and explore your range. Why would you want to skip out on time spent focusing on you? However, if you’d have a special situation, please contact us to discuss.




How long are the finished demos?


Our finished animation demos are around 1 - 1 1/2 minutes and have 5 - 6 unique characters. Commercial demos are approximately 1 minute long and have 3 - 5 spots.




How long does it take to receive the finished demo?


We don’t want to rush perfection, so fully mixed and edited demos are available within 10 - 12 business days after your demo session.




What is the format for demos? Can I get 1 demo with animation, commercial and video game content on it?


You could… but that would be pretty confusing for the listener! Demos are a compilation of short clips that highlight your range and you should have 1 demo per medium. It is not possible to properly showcase your skills for all 3 mediums in 1 demo.




Is there a discount for demos if I take a class?


Sorry! We do not offer discounts to former students for demo creation.





VO ADVICE

I’ve always been told I have a great voice.  Now what?


Congrats! Your voice is an important tool. Now you need to learn what to do with it. Depending on your experience level, a class or private coaching will help teach you how you can use your voice and tap into your VO potential.




How much money will I make?


VO work is like all work in the entertainment industry, you can make a lot of money or none at all. It’s freelance, and you’ll have to go out for auditions. It’s the client that makes the ultimate decision on who to hire, but the best chance you have to unlock your potential is to train your voice and learn how to interpret character breakdowns and scripts.




I’ve taken a class and I have a demo… now what?


Awesome! You have all the tools you need to work as a VO performer. Remember, acting is a muscle and it should be exercised frequently. If you don’t have an agent, you’re ready to look for one! Questions? Let us know. We’re here to help!
