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!

Hi Coach Ray here.

I’ve assembled a “Local Professional” group of Independent Voice-Over instructors who can give you On-Going private lessons so you can continue to grow at every stage of your VO development.

Now you don’t have to go to the Bay Area, LA or New York! All the professional instructors are here in the Sacramento area and with it… Local Affordable Lesson Fees!!!

RATES: $75 an hour for lessons



ADRIENNE ELLIS

Audio Books


Everything you need to know about ACX/Audible from picking the right books, auditioning, uploading demos, and uploading a finished product.

  • Twistedwave – DAW recording software
  • Creating your “signature voice”
  • Creating believable Characters
  • Finding your niche (Promo, Industrials etc.)

Basic stage acting for VO actors

  • How to breathe properly and support your voice. Stage actors didn’t have microphones so needed to project without harming their vocal chords.
  • Movement for the actor. A lot of animation today uses the VO actor’s movements and gestures to create the character during the animation stage.
  • Focus. Various methods used to enable the actor to block out everything around them and be able to create a “real world” that they inhabit while recording in a plain booth.

 

Having a B. A. in Theatre (Acting) from UCLA as well as the coveted M. F. A. in acting (only 6 women per year are admitted to the UCLA acting program), this wide breadth of training enables me to customize lessons to your individual needs.
