Don't miss The Masters Advanced ADR/Looping Event with Pat Fraley in Los Angeles on January, 21, 2007 (updated).

Students who have participated in this dynamic event are now reporting in with the news of ADR work in Seattle, Vancouver, San Diego, The Bay Area, Denver, Phoenix, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, Toronto, NY, and Boston.

There is not a region in North America that doesn't hire actors and voice people to do ADR/Looping for film and video projects.

Sure, LA is the MECCA for ADR work, and other cities aren't looping Disney's next Blockbuster – but anime, documentaries, industrials, and independent films all need ADR, and there are Post-Production Houses to meet their needs spread across the US and Canada.

There is work available to those who are trained. What better way to introduce yourself to the powers that be by letting them know you have been trained by the best in the country in the best facility in LA?

Thanks for the class!! I just did my first paid looping/ ADR session in SAN DIEGO.
