WHAT WE DO
All coachings and recording sessions take place at John Marshall Media - a Grammy Award winning state of the art recording studio in the heart of Hell's Kitchen (In the Film Center Building - 630 9th Avenue between 44th/45th).
Commercial VO Demo Package
First, we sit down for a coaching/evaluation. We'll work through a number of pieces of commercial copy, guiding you on the cadence, focus and specificity of each read within your own unique range. Then we hone down our choices, selecting the strongest spots for your reel. (PLEASE NOTE: After the initial session, if we think you just might not be ready to record a demo yet, WE WILL BE STRAIGHT WITH YOU, and we can discuss further coaching or where you can take some really good classes.)
The recording session generally happens the following week. Both Jeff and Andrew will be there to coach you through the whole recording process and help you perfect your reads.
We edit, add music and effects, and then make it sound like butter. We will send you a first pass to approve or request any final order-changes or edits. Then we set you loose with a final copy of your shiny, new commercial voice-over demo reel in mp3 and wav formats.
Feel like you’re close, but not quite there? Or maybe you just need to get in a VO workout to brush up your skills? We also offer individual coaching by the hour. Whether you feel like you need help mastering that “conversational” commercial read, upping your audiobook game, perfecting your promos, or just want to work through a variety of material, we can help you improve your reads in multiple arenas of the voice acting universe.

"Jeff and Andrew are consummate professionals. I trust their instincts and analysis of the actor's needs and abilities. It is rare these days to have someone care enough to take the time to teach VO technique and to create a really solid, great demo that doesn't sound like everyone else's."
