Over the course of 4 weeks, immerse yourself in the perfect extension to the original programme.
With practical, actionable advice throughout, your confidence, skills and voiceover career will be boosted by 20 interactive modules and 4 Voiceover Challenges.
In WEEK 1 we explore your voice 'The Instrument' and set about stretching ourselves with articulation and breathing workouts leading the creation of the perfect vocal warmup. We also explore interpretation of 'copy' and participate in Challenge 1.
WEEK 2 covers 'Home recording Essentials', building upon the foundations from Kickstart One. Working through common technical problems recording voiceover, Challenge 2 gives you the chance to develop your ear and put the learning into practice.
In the following WEEK 3 we focus on the business aspects of being a successful Voiceover Artist. During this week two further 'tricky' challenges are set.
The FINAL WEEK gets you thinking about an action plan built on your strengths and considering how you can go beyond your natural voice.
The programme encourages all participants to balance time, effort and investment. At the end of the four weeks you'll know what you need to do to take your voiceover career to the next level!
“Another fabulous, well thought out course from Guy. VOK II is really going to help me up my game. As well as providing us with many more tools to succeed as a VO, Guy gives fantastic individual feedback on 4 very different challenges. Also, importantly, the modules are just the right size to learn lots from and fit around busy lives!“
“Having done the first Voiceover Kickstart (and thoroughly enjoyed it) I was looking forward to this one. And it delivered. This was no easy breeze with weekly recording challenges (some rather tricky) adding up to a lot of material over four weeks and you had to keep up!”
‘a major step up from VOK 1. Fun and hugely informative. I looked forward to it every day and I’m implementing my vocal warm-ups and articulation rounds into my daily workouts’
“This course has been a great way of identifying what I need to improve and change to take my voiceover work further. The most valuable changes have all sped my work up. Whether it be having an improved technical set up to start with; doing a decent vocal warm up, or just the way I read once recording; I’m now working at a noticeably faster rate, which as someone with limited time to work, is proving invaluable. Thanks Guy!”
“Guy’s VO Kickstart II is for people who are serious about breaking into voiceover or to up your game if you already have a career in the field. Things you may have never considered before are opened up to
you and the programme gives clear direction on how to be your best professional and unique self. I have a lot of work to do but now I know WHAT to do – this makes me feel more prepared and confident that I can. I recommend this course highly.“
“No matter how long you have been a voice actor VOK II is a must for any voice over artist at any level. I don’t believe any voice actor out there is an expert in every side of the VO business. It’s not just about the 1% of time talking into a microphone it’s about the other 99% covering all the other jobs -marketer, engineer, web designer, strategist etc. I have not only found it to be an invaluable experience to learn more about every facet of the business but to also become more mindful and to refine which direction I want my career to take. The information Guy has to offer is golden and the way in which the course is delivered is a fantastic engaging experience. Thank you Guy and thank you to everyone else taking part, your feedback has been crucial to my development as voice actor.”
“Guy Michaels has built a practical and usable course that gives a unique insight into working as a freelance voiceover artist. I have a template now to build my business on. Before the course was even finished I saw concrete results from enacting the advice I was given. VOK II builds brilliantly on the VOK intro – highly recommended to those serious about building a solid VO business and developing their voice. Thank you Guy!”
“VOKII is a well structured and motivating course that challenged me to get out of my comfort zone, and focus on all elements that go into making a successful voiceover career.”
