NAKAMOTO PRODUCTION’S

"ON-GOING LESSONS"

Ray Nakamoto in the studio

So you’ve finished your Killer Demo, joined one or more of the Pay2Play sites and are trying your hand at Marketing.

That’s all well and good….

But what about “On going VO Training” to develop your Audition skills, and keep up with the latest trends?

After your initial Killer Commercial Demo, you might want to branch out and record in the future:

  • ANIMATION/VIDEO GAME demo
  • TRAILER/NETWORK PROMO demo
  • POLITICAL demo
  • AUDIO BOOK demo
  • IVR/Phone Message demo
  • NARRATION/DOCUMENTARY demo
  • An EXPLAINER NARRATION demo
  • A CORPORATE NARRATION demo
  • A HARDSELL RETAIL demo (Automotive?)
  • SOFT SELL RETAIL demo (Jewelry, Cosmetics, Romantic Travel)

The more your areas of Expertise,
the More VO Jobs!

Bio:

 

corinnemeadors.com

 

With over 20 years of experience in theater and classical voice, Corinne is noted for her ability to interpret and deliver clear, concise voice over copy.

 

I have used my voice in so many different ways throughout the course of my life… acting, performing musical theater and in film, singing opera and classical music... and entertaining family and friends with the next original voice that I come up with. Yes, I am that relative.  I’ve also had opportunities to teach voice to children and adults.  Formal training in singing classical music has enabled me the flexibility to not only carefully control what my voice is able to do, but to also the ability change the color, pitch, timbre and sound. The smallest details and subtleties have meaning. Acting allows interpretation and believability to shine through. Every word counts.
