If you're new to the field, or would like a director's insight into what helps and what doesn't, then this is for you. We will cover everything you need to know in order to professionally apply to paid commercial voiceover, narration, or voice acting gigs. We will also cover what helps your application stand out and the director's reasoning behind these tips. You will come away from these lectures with the know-how to stand head and shoulders above a crowd of applicants! These lectures are designed and taught by FN Network Director, Amelia Kinch.
