1  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Project Promotion / Naomi Mercer Voice: New Free Closed Facebook Group on: July 18, 2017, 11:38:08 AM
Sponsor Message From Naomi Mercer:

Quote
Dearest fellow performers of the Puget Sound region,

Is this year flying by or WHAT?!  Between politics, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and summer FINALLY coming to us after the most grueling winter ever, I feel like I've never had more distractions in my life.  Enjoying summer is a welcome distraction.  But the rest of it doesn't really make me any money or help me move forward with my goals.  So before another day escapes us, I want to get my closed Facebook group in the mix. 

You might ask, "What's so special about a closed Facebook group?"

Welp, for starters, it's FREEEEEE:)  It's also very interactive--people participate in discussions, give each other tips, and talk about what's going on right now in the industry.  You can get advice from either myself or another vo actor that might be a couple levels above you.  Or, if you're feeling generous, you can give advice to someone with less experience than you.  Calling it "closed" only means that not just anyone can join.  It's for two types of people - people who are serious about becoming a working voice over talent or people who are currently working regularly in the field.

Plus there are some very simple rules that keep things nuttin' but productive:)  Stuff like no self promotion except during designated times, or topics for the day - like Workin' Wednesday (Whatcha workin' on?) or Goal Digger Friday (What are your goals this week?) - so we can spark discussions that everyone can learn something from.

I've only recently learned how helpful closed groups are.  For my recording and editing, I use Adobe Audition and I joined the closed group for it, Inside Audition.  It's great for posting questions when I'm stumped with the software.  Sometimes I just read through all the posts because I learn so much!  Plus the developers are on there all the time and they chime in regularly. 

If you ask me a question on this new closed Facebook group, I can give you an answer that everyone can see and learn from.  It's going to be awesome!  Fellow voice over colleagues, I give you the Voice Over Talent Collective (you can call it the VOTC for short).

See you there!!

Naomi

5  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Classes & Workshops / UW Shakespeare Summer class for high school students on: April 12, 2017, 08:51:46 AM
Unlocking Shakespeare: An Acting Workshop
This workshop is designed to give theater students of all levels a tool kit for performing Shakespeare. Through a series of exercises in text analysis that are aimed to help students understand, illuminate and physically engage with language, students will develop a new relationship with Shakespeare’s words as a source for powerful acting choices. Morning sessions include voice and movement work, stage combat and an introduction to Elizabethan dance. Afternoon sessions will focus on rehearsals of scenes and sonnets. Students will discover that acting Shakespeare requires commitment and a willingness to risk oneself to explore deeply human questions. Workshop will culminate in both a student-driven teaching demonstration and a performance.

Meets: July 10–21; 9 a.m.–3 p.m.
Location: UW Seattle campus
Length: 2 weeks
Cost: $760
Instructors: Julie Olsen and Karen Skrinde

6  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Classes & Workshops / The Workflow of Voiceover--TPS Member Discount on: March 22, 2017, 10:58:03 AM
Hey TPS Peeps!
Naomi Mercer here.  In November, I did a soft-launch of my online class The Workflow of VO and then, in January, I hosted an online accountability group called Momentum Month.  Here's a quote from a gal who signed up for both:

"...thank you so much for everything. From The Business of Voiceover videos, chocked full of the most useful and easy to understand information, to the amazing Momentum Month we just shared, I am feeling so fired up!"    -Nicole Corbo

It's true, The Workflow of VO is good stuff - I use the information in there to book the work I do everyday and earn my own living.

So, now that I am doing my official launch, I wanted to offer TPS members a 40% off discount.  TPS members have a special place in my heart because I am from the Puget Sound area and I also started in theatre.  If I can take my acting chops to use it to book voice over work from my own home on my own time, there's a good chance you can too:)
