And much, much more!
In this two hour seminar offered by NY voiceover talent and teacher Sara Krieger, we ’ll not only address all of these key points, but participants will also have an opportunity to read copy and be individually coached. This seminar is sure to inform and enlighten, and will allow you to leave with some very powerful professional tools!
Sara Krieger transitioned from a celebrated music career in New York to become one of the most steadily working female actors in Voiceover. While her career in music included gigs at the Blue Note in NY and Japan, Jazz festivals around the world and Carnegie Hall (most notably as one of the original members of the Grammy award winning group ‘New York Voices’), what was originally intended to be a supplementary move to Voiceovers evolved into a full time and well regarded career. Sara has recorded accounts for Estee Lauder, Thermasilk, Orencia, Citbank, Unicef, HGTV, Fox TV, Bloomberg Radio and countless others. For the past 13 years, she has worked steadily on Late Night with David Letterman, as one of his monologue “skit voices”, as well as filling in for Dave’s regular on air announcer, Alan Kalter, in his absence. Sara is also an accomplished voiceover coach. In addition to teaching privately, she has also taught many courses for the union’s “Business of the Biz” series, of which she was a co-creator. She recently moderated the successful SAG Foundation’s The Business panel, which presented "The Evolution of Women in Voiceovers” (which can be seen on Youtube). In addition, she is a regular contributor to the EIF Voiceover Lab of the SAG Foundation in New York.
