Voice Acting

Business For Voice Actors

Fundamentals and Depth

Summary Summary

The side of voice acting that is seldom taught but is just as important is the business. What price should you charge? What are the advantages you can promote locally, online, and in foreign markets? What considerations should you consider before walking away from a client? There is no one-size-fits-all-answer to these questions because it is different between every person on every job. This is probably why so many talents have such a hard time when it comes to the business side of the art. In Business for Voice Actors, you will learn about the fundamentals of business and how they apply to voice acting. This course is beneficial for new AND experienced actors.

Within 6 weeks, we will cover everything from accounting to networking; branding; pricing; contracts, and more. In this fast-paced class you will see real life case studies, work on assignments you can apply immediately when you reach out to your next potential client, discuss concepts such as what it means to give more value to the client, what is your value as a voice actor, as well as basic administration duties such as bookkeeping and invoicing.
