When auditioning, working on-set or at a recording studio, the goal is to aim for total authenticity and fluidity. To connect with the script. To give a great interpretation. In order to meet the professional expectations, perfect pronunciation and command of your voice are a must. Working at the professional level requires it. In this class we will work on assessing your pronunciation and fluidity in further detail when reading copy in Spanish. Coaching in English will also be available if preferred. Texts in both languages will be provided.
Each student will be individually evaluated, focusing on script reading technique, career goals, website/social media presentations, and casting protocols. You will get concise and practical feedback at the end of each session.
If you desire to improve your voice-over artistry, and work as an actor in Spanish, this is the class for you. It will help you to understand the New York Hispanic acting market, and also to identify your strengths in order to find your place creatively.
