To be successful in Voiceover today – whether you're a VO professional, an author narrating your own audiobook, a content creator for eLearning products and apps, or a podcaster looking to grow your audience – a basic understanding of audio production is a must.
- Voice Over talent: If you can't deliver broadcast quality sound, you won't get the job.
- Authors: Audible is not going to accept bad audio.
- Podcasters: If your listeners can't turn you up, they will tune you out.
- Content Creators: You know that poor quality audio leads to less engaged consumers.
Stop leaving money on the table. Learn audio production the easy way! We teach you exactly what you need to know to produce high quality, broadcast-level professional voice-over. Most audio production courses focus on music production. We skip all that and focus just on voice over production. We make it fun and easy for you to learn exactly what you need to know to create professional sounding recordings on almost any budget.
Voice Recording Bootcamp offers you technical training for creative minds.
"Deb and Scott start at the very beginning and walk through the entire process of setting up and working. What's impressive is that they also talk about the key elements of voice recording, equipment, setup and everything I could possibly think of, as well as may things I had never considered. The plentiful tips and tricks, and quick references are incredibly helpful. Their personalities keep you engaged. I can't recommend this course highly enough!"
- Cheryl Gustafson, Voice actor, California USA

"I use this course as a resource when I need to go back and review. I knew nothing about voice over work, setting up a studio, recording, etc. It's all explained in the lectures. The best news of all, I've found voice over work and the gigs are starting to come in! Scott and Deborah, thanks so much!"
- Lewis Giles, Voice actor, London UK
