Voiceover demos are to voiceover actors, what headshots are to on-camera actors.  They can help you get the attention of voiceover agents and managers, as well as open doors to voiceover auditions and work.  Anna produces voiceover demos and has important ideas to share, so you can create an ear-opening first demo or upgrade your current demo.  Animation VO demos are the focus of this class.  You will learn: 

  • What makes a competitive animation demo and how to structure it. 
  • What copy to use for your animation demo and where to find it.
  • How to avoid common mistakes with your demo.

Do you have an animation demo and would like some feedback on it? Anna will listen to several animation demos from actors in the class.  Note: Due to time constraints, not all submitted demos will be reviewed.
