Audiobook Workshop May 3-4

Day 1 – March 3rd

 

We will teach you how to get started narrating, how to develop your genre and style, and how to create your demo. We will also delve deep into topics like what it means to disinguish reading from storytelling and the importance of building a repertoire of characters.  Perhaps most importantly, you will learn the ins and outs of the audiobook industry and the basics of audio narration recording directly from the experts. Peter Berkrot will share his 25+ years of experience as an award winning audiobook narrator, director, and coach.

Day 2 – March 4th

The second day will provide a practical opportunity to try those skills out in the booth. This will be a primer course on recording as well as an actor/director session working on material provided by the student. Each student will get ample time in the booth recieving coaching and direction from Peter Berkrot while Kenny Pappaconstantinou engineers and instructs as well. MP3 audio recorded that day will be provided to students.
