Voice Over: Building a Commercial Reel

Presented by: Theresa Buchheister & Ryan William Downey

Held online over Zoom: 

What’s in a commercial voice over reel anyway?

Theresa Buchheister and Ryan William Downey will guide you down the path to creating your own, unique commercial voice over reel over the course of 5 weeks. It is not easy to find all the right pieces! They will start by leading you through a research process, building a strong base of content that only you could build. Then, they will help you sift through the material to find the keepers. Lastly, they will help you shape the pieces that you keep, landing on the strongest reads and most effective placement within the reel. At the end of the 5 weeks you will have enough prepared material to record a reel that is distinctly you.
