About the Event

"Ha, people tell me I have a nice voice. Can I do voice-overs?"

"I wonder how this industry works!"

"How do I start pursuing voice-overs as a hobby?"

"I am sure I can emote and intonate better than the voice on TV. But, how do I switch careers? :( "

"I can mimic. Can I try voice-overs?"


Find answers to all your curious questions, as VO/dubbing artist, Malini Gowrishankar ( voiceofmalini.com ) takes you through a very informative, eye-opening workshop on voice-overs, a very less understood industry. This workshop, will focus primarily on the practical aspects of becoming a VO artist - the fundamentals of voice modulation, practical tips to exploring this industry as a newbie and more.


The following will be covered at a basic level during the 6 hours workshop spread across two days:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Introduction to equipment

5. Practical tips on switching careers and exploring VO as career option / hobby

6. Basic steps to setting up a home studio

7. Networking in this industry - How to?

8. Finding your niche - how can your voice be of use to the industry?

9. In the offline format, there used to be a studio session. In the online format, I will make you practise and record samples on your phone (‘homework’) and review the samples one to one.

SETTING THE EXPECTATIONS:

---------------------------------------------

I wish to set the correct expectations right from the beginning hence please read through the following carefully:


1. Please do not come with the expectation of becoming a VO artist in one day. This workshop is introductory - this will show you your options and throw light on the things you need to know and do, you will have to do your homework and hardwork to become a VO artist.

2. While I will be available on a need basis to help you out once in a while post the workshop, kindly do not expect me to handhold you till you become an artist. What you become post this workshop is totally dependent on your interest levels and commitment.

3. Certain voices work and certain voices dont. While I will be happy to assess your voice and give you a direction during the workshop, please do understand that not all who have a voice can become an artist. However, if you become one, I will be the happiest! :)

4. Come with an open mind to observe, participate and learn. Leave all your inhibitions behind and get ready for an explorative weekend!


Its an online workshop on zoom. Very limited seats. Please pay to confirm your slot.
