Like to mix business with pleasure?
More and more voice acting study opportunities are offering edutainment or travel as components of their workshops.
What's your ideal destination for a voice acting workshop?
Voice acting workshops, at one point not so long ago, were confined to a local recording studio or hotel conference center.
Within the past several years many voice acting coaches have been offering a different sort of experience wherein the actual workshop participation is just one aspect of the package.
Some of these events now include social activities and travel to studios nestled in the mountains of Utah by the lake shore, a stone's throw from a beach on the coast of Hawaii and even on cruise lines sailing up the Pacific coastline.
A voice over workshop, for those who haven't attended one, is an opportunity to learn a new skill, technique, or side of the voice acting business that is usually offered over a weekend by instructors of voice over.
You could think of it as ongoing education (which it is) and a chance to realize talent that is just waiting to be explored.
Many veterans attend these workshops annually as part of their professional development, confirming that these educational events are not just for aspiring voice actors trying to make it in the biz, but for anyone who wants to challenge themselves and learn something new in an industry that is changing every day.
Going to a voice acting workshop is educational, good for your brain, helpful to your voice and as a very satisfactory fringe benefit, exceptionally fun!
That being said, is there anywhere you'd like to see some sort of voice over workshop / event take place?
