If you just add it to your cart it tells you. Each workshop is $300. But if you do 2, it's $100 off so $500 in total. And I believe $150 off if you do all 3 so it's $750. Hope that helps.
*signs up immediately for advanced class*
Thank you for bumping my thread. I might have missed seeing the New York dates for the new Advanced class otherwise. Thank you!
EDIT: +__+ Except the link to sign up for the NY workshops isn't working, hurr.
EDIT 6/21/12: Oh, it's working now. Advanced workshop sign up GETTO DA ZE!
I'm a bit interested in voice acting but not so much that I'm going to pay that much for it. Not at this moment to be exact.
Heya! Been a silent page for a while.
I just signed up for the Beginner class, figured id learn from the start. I'm really excited and looking forward to the class (the the 8 hour drive will be a pain :/ )
Any one know of any good parking areas near Button Sound?
If you do drive in after all, try looking up parking on google. Only one I've parked in is over on 9th ave, and as I recall they had decent rates, but there are lots all over the city.
So I recently had the great pleasure to venture to NYC for the first time. I was able to attend this great workshop after a lot of headache to be able to find the money (and the hotel….and the building) but after being lost for a short while while walking to the studio. And after a short time of screaming at my GPS that decided I should drive through a park. I was nice and happy to be in the great city.
After showing up a few minutes late for the class due to getting lost. I was greeted by the other two participants in the Beginner level class and Tony Oliver. I apologized for being late and we got back underway. The first hour and a half or so of the class was lecture of technique, Skill, and industry sites. Followed by some cool stories about some VA’s and Tony’s Personal stories. Due to there only being three people in the first day of classes the lecture portion of the class went by rather quickly and I myself only had a few questions because Tony is very good at explaining himself. So we were taken into the booth and told the technical parts of the mic and how the recordings work and about the system. He told us the number one rule of being in the booth “Don’t Touch Anything, unless told otherwise” He said even before grabbing the cans (headphones) to ask just to make sure. And we were soon taking turns going through lines and characters to get into the feel of recording for Anime voice overs and following director’s instructions.
After taking this class I feel much more confident in my abilities and in my beginning of the career. I look forward to searching for auditions and looking forward to the day where I will hear a “Yes”. I am happy about heading into a industry that will be hard to make a claim in and if I get the chance I’ll be happy to work with Tony one day.
If you ever get the chance to take this class I highly recommend it. If you have any questions id be happy to answer.
I'm looking for anyone who has taken the Advanced class. They're finally coming back to Chicago with it, and I'm considering doing it. However, I'd really like to know if it's worth throwing down another $300...I mean, if the information and activities are a bit redundant, then I think I'll pass. I guess what I'd like to know is what separates it from the beg/int classes. If anyone could help...that'd be great.
I took the Advanced class in New York almost 3 weeks ago.
While a lot of the Beginner's class featured anime dubbing, and the Intermediate class was like, only half dubbing, the Advanced class is primarily video game recording and audition practice. We went through a mock audition (for a video game) and discussed audition etiquette. It lets you know what to expect and what not to do. We practiced recording for a JRPG and for an MMORPG (the two were very different). We also got to hone in on what our strengths and weaknesses are.
It was different, but I'm not sure if I can say it was vastly different from the previous two workshops. Because I (1) thoroughly enjoy voice acting; (2) thoroughly enjoyed the first two workshops, and; (3) it allows me to experience a bit of my dream for a day, I signed up for the Advanced one too.
Based on the opinions of people I've spoken with, the Advanced class is a good option if you've had *any* voice over experience or idea of what you're doing. It sounds like there's a lot more hands on work and a lot more expectation of your ability as a voice actor, so it's a more personalized and productive experience career wise as compared with the first two classes aimed more at casual interest. I actually just registered for the Chicago Advanced class after talking with someone who'd taken all three classes and then talking a bit with Tony Oliver this weekend at Matsuricon, so I personally feel a lot better going in myself now. Maybe I'll see you there!
