A commercial and Promo workshop weekend

'Hollywood comes to London'

with special guests

Mary Lynn Wissner and Jeff Howell

The VoiceOver Network work hard to bring you the best voiceover teachers from around the world and this workshop is going to be incredible.

Commercials and Promos are an exciting and fast-moving area of the voiceover industry. So learning more and getting to work with top industry professionals is a wonderful opportunity.

  • Do you want to learn more about how castings for commercials and promos work?
  • Want to know what it is that casting directors and producers are looking for?
  • Would you like find out more about booking more promos?
  • Maybe you are interested to learn more about working in the US commercial and promo markets?
  • Can you get to London on 4th, 5th and 6th May 2018?

If it's a YES to any of these then keep reading to find out more.

These two industry 'power-houses' are coming to LONDON in May 2018 to train and coach 30 switched-on voiceovers. 

The weekend will be split into 2 parts, one day will be focused on Commercials with Mary Lynn and the other day will be all about Promos with Jeff Howell. So you will get a full day working with each of these brilliant coaches. There will be 2 groups of 15 people in each one, one group will be for advanced and experienced voiceover artists and the other group will be for more intermediate voiceover artists.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with these two popular and in demand voiceover coaches.

Both, Mary Lynn and Jeff work closely with ad agencies and production companies casting the voices for major campaigns and regional spots; they know what the trends are and what makes certain auditions stand out, and others stop at the slate!

Mary Lynn will coach talent on techniques to gain the skill set, range, and confidence that will be tailored to their commercial reads. Find out what’s happening with those auditions and what you can do to stand out amongst the sea of other talents. Sometimes, it’s bad habits, bad directing and more often than not, not being aware of how to interpret the trends. Every day, Mary Lynn works closely with ad agencies and production companies casting the voices for major campaigns and regional spots; she knows what the trends are and knows what makes certain auditions stand out, and others stop at the slate! Mary Lynn will direct talent on ways to perfect all aspects of the commercial read; fine-tuning for self-direction and finding confidence in the audition.

Jeff will focus on nailing the 'promo' read. Networks are facing fierce competition in grabbing and maintaining their audience, so the marketing of shows has never been as important as it is now.  Therefore, the voices attached to these networks and shows are crucial in creating these effective marketing campaigns.   During the promo class, you’ll discover what the networks are looking for when hiring voiceover talent to voice their promos.  You’ll explore which styles of delivery are current.  You’ll also learn the importance of voice acting in your promo VO delivery and ways to improve your own reads to adapt to this ever-changing promo landscape.  Throughout the day, you will rehearse and perform a variety of radio and tv promo spots where you will be given direction, acting tips and feedback on reads.

“Mary Lynn is a fabulous VO Coach!  Her redirects and tricks for finding that perfect read are so helpful – oftentimes I find that it’s her voice running through my head when I’m auditioning on my own.  I can honestly say that my career would not be what it is today without Mary Lynn’s guidance and support.”  Cissy Jones
