Eryn currently oversees the commercial and print divisions at Cast Iron, and is co-casting director of its television and film divisions. Her relaxed presence behind the camera puts talent at ease, while her devotion to finding the best talent

From Naomi Mercer, Voice Over Teacher:

I am so excited to announce my online streamable class about the business-side of voice over, The Workflow of VO! https://www.thebusinessofvoiceover.com/p/website-landing

The videos from the first lesson are streamable on November 7.
New lessons are released every Monday for the following six weeks.

This class is about the daily ins and outs of a voice over actor and how you can design your workflow into a well-oiled machine to make money doing voice over work. I go through every step I take to book the work I book every day, which includes jobs like national commercials, video games, synthetic voices and animation projects. Check out my website to learn more about the work I've done: http://naomimercer.com/

Whether you are at the beginning of your voice over career or just want some new insights to give it a boost, this class is extremely helpful. If you already have an agent, this can help you be a better talent for them--you'll have other stuff going on that won't make you depend too much on any given job. And if you don't have an agent, I talk about tons of other ways to book work so that you can look more desirable to an agent by having a few more credits on your resume.

I've been working tirelessly on this class for a very long time and I'm crazy excited that it's ready.  I am from Seattle and started acting right here in the NW Theatre community.  Being able to earn money doing voice over work as my day job gave me the freedom to get to be involved in more theatre.  All of a sudden, none of it was a hobby anymore!  I get paid to use my voice, act and be expressive on my own time and I'd love to help you do it too.  Click on the link https://www.thebusinessofvoiceover.com/p/website-landing for more info and I sure hope to have you in class next Monday, November 7th!

Cheers

"THREE WOMEN WHO BRLLIANTLY ARTICULATE "THE 48th STREET EXERCISE." - Gary
LIBBY SKALA: (Read more of Libby's description)
What I love about your solo exploration workshop is that it’s the ultimate writer’s block remover. It provides the perfect forum to discover material from a visceral, rather than an critical, analytical place.
By committing to arbitrary physical actions, adjustments, vocal patterns, and locations on stage, I find myself step by step, freed from the need to look and sound good, clever and intelligent. I become immersed in play and movement and speech flow freely. I enter the world of the heart and not the head....
BRIDGET O'NEILL: (Read more of Bridget's description)
Gary Austin makes for one very interesting teacher. I enjoy working with him. I don’t always know what to expect from him, but the surprises work both ways, I rarely know what to expect from myself. He has this distinct ability to keep one deliciously off balance and this, combined with his unique tools and exercises, creates a wonderful environment for discovery. Never have I surprised myself more than in Gary’s Solo Performance “48th Street” Exercise...
KAY LAVERGNE JAZ: (Read more of Kay's description)
This is the ultimate fusion of all that is wonderful about improvisation. Everything on stage and that which I create is the “other”. There are people, places and things that morph into the land of my making by my 100% commitment to the movement, to the here and now. Intention collides with imagination all on the wave of trust that comes from the scary place of embracing the uncomfortable...
