The voiceregistry’s Weekend Workout opportunity provides you with:
- Constructive Critiques of your practice audition
- Ability to learn from others by listening to their takes and any suggestions given by the Guest Director
- Exposure to Talent Agents and Casting Directors
How it works:
In order to participate, you must be a Platinum Member of the voiceregistry. Once logged in you will see a Weekend Workout link in the toolbar. Every Friday by 6:00pm (PST), we will post the copy for the Weekend Workout along with specific direction for your recording. Practice the script over the weekend and record 1 mp3 of the copy with a slate of your name in front of the audition.
There are instructions online of how to return the audition to voiceregistry and your practice audition will be included in our grouping to be heard by the GUEST DIRECTOR. The GUEST DIRECTOR will listen through the spots and make comments where appropriate. On Tuesday of the next week, you can check back on the Weekend Workout page for a link to all the practice auditions with the comments that were provided. This way, you not only learn from your own read but you can hear others as well.
