The Heat is On! Summer Newbie's Night!

RSVPs OPEN WED. JULY 24th, 7:00 PM

After more than a month and a half off for travel and family vacations, The DVA is diving into summer with our NEWBIE's NIGHT. With SO many new upcoming topics and special guests, we need to get the multitude of new members up to speed.

Without further ado... Future Voice Over Actors... Ready... GO! We welcome you to test the water or jump in head first! This event always fills fast. Don't wait to sign up. There is only room for 12.

Description: This is for those who have yet to attend a Meet-Up. The basics are extremely important and the understanding of those basics dictate whether or not one cares to pursue this adventure. This is a 3+ hour hands-on seminar that introduces the skills required to pursue a career in voice acting. We will be discussing The Big 3: Physical, Technical and Psychological.

Here is a great opportunity to evaluate your potential and help you decide if voice acting is worth your time and commitment. Everyone will get a chance to read & record some copy. It may be an advertisement, animation excerpt, audiobook excerpt, children story or even the local weather. You will receive your raw audio with direction via email a few days after the meet up. You will also receive the now famous DVA Newbie's Handout, packed with info, exercises and demo scripts as well as my pal John Florian's awesome voiceoverxtra.com pencils! Wow! You will leave with a clear understanding of this industry, where it is going and what is needed from you to compete. Hope to see you there!

    I was absolutely thrilled with the energy, eagerness and openness of the group. I believe Cliff was responsible for fostering such an environment. The information that was presented was unprecedented and the ability to apply what was lectured was incredible. This is truly a safe environment to sharpen our craft. Thank you Cliff for blessing us.

      Thanx for the encouragement. You are awesome Joan, remember the more you believe what you are saying the more the audience will. Also, allow your body to move uninhibitedly. My biggest challenge is learning the technology and not being intimidated by it. I look forward getting to know you so that we can encourage one another.

    Had a great time at Newbies Night!... Cliff, it looks like it has been 4 years since I last attended a Newbies Night and I thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion! My apologies to you and the group for having to leave a little early.

    What a blast! Enjoyed the incredibly talented group. Cliff's direction during "mic time" was top notch. His insight is terrific and his enthusiasm is contagious. Can't wait for the next meetup.

    This was action- and info-packed. So much to learn and explore, and Cliff gave us a great introduction (or, for some, re-introduction). Looking forward to more events, and meeting more folks.

    Great newbies meeting. I think my head is still spinning. Looking forward to next weeks business meet up. Hopefully the mike work will get easier for me. Use to working a stage not just a mike!

    Great meet up Cliff. I learned a bunch! So much more than other classes I have taken on VO. I look forward to being a regular in your classes. See you next week!

    Fantastic meet up! Cliff not only taught us a LOT in such a small amount of time, but he made it fun. Really really looking forward to more meet ups.

    Very much looking forward to this!

    I've done amateur VO for almost 2 years, but I figure it's time to make the big step and this class seems to be the perfect start.

    I would like to learn voice acting for video games and animation.

      So, pro tip, don't use the app for signing up, it won't let you pay through it. Excited for the meet up!

    • Cliff

      Thanks, Patrick, I haven't used the meetup app. Some love it, some... eh, not so much.

  • James Phillips

    Looking forward to learning about the voice over business. I'd like I start as a side business. Possibly breaking into audio books or some other opportunities that can be done in a home studio.
