“I had a wonderful learning experience when I was living in the United States. I was in the country for 1 year and 5 months, so I found the Voiceover class which was taught by Gerry Laytin. Since I am an announcer in Brazil, I thought that learning how to do Voiceover in English would be a challenge and an opportunity to improve the language and the techniques. I really liked and recommend the class. All the students and the teacher helped me with my difficulties in English and I felt so comfortable to learn and do the exercises. Thank you Gerry for the class, it was so good to me.” – Isabela Chagas, Newscaster, 97.3 FM Chapado do Sul, Brazil
After completing this course, students can further their studies in Behind the Mic: The Business of Voiceover Acting.
