What's in demand this fall in the Voice Over Market?
More than any other time in the last ten years, accents and dialects are required for Animation, Games, and Audiobook jobs.
Pat Fraley has organized a blockbuster class that will teach you about the invaluable voice over skill of dialects.
Saturday, September 23, 2006 (Limited to 12 participants. Sign up now! This will fill rapidly.)
There will be four Dialect masters present, including:

Patrick's performance of the audiobook version of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" called for 43 dialects and over 100 characters, and was heralded as "The Best of this Evergreen Ever" (People Magazine).
