I attended the class in September in Albany, NY. The weekend was pretty intense but well worth it. There was alot of material to cover. The workbook is excellent. I am taking it page by page to get all the information again. And as a map for starting my voice over business. Eric Hunt is the perfect instructor because he works in the field. I have used VFA staff numerous times before, during and after the class. They provide great service! VFA thanks for getting me strated in the voice over industry.

SUCCESS UPDATE: Well, I guess I am now officially a voice over person. Not too long ago I finished the Powerpoint presentation for Florock products. 54 slides, and a happy customer. Sent off the invoice, and just waiting for the check.

I really had fun doing it, and am looking forward to other projects, although they're hard to come by. I do want to thank you, Eric, and VFA for the education and help in getting this launched.

Support for taking the first baby steps in getting started with a VO career was easy to ask for and quickly provided. Because the many topics covered in the Mater Class are necessarily presented mostly in overview fashion, the curriculum binder, on-line reference materials, and willingness of the VFA staff to assist are crucial for success. Kudos to Eric, Courtney, and the other professionals at VFA Central for their willing helpfulness. Undertaking the voice over journey would be much more difficult without them and the VFA backu-up resources.

After I took the "introductory" class, I was not completely sure whether I wished to pursue the master class and, eventually, acual voiceover work. In visiting with Jeremy at VFA and analyzing my introductory evaluation, I believed it the right thing to do. The outlay of finances to take the class was the first hurdle to consider as I am retired and what with the economy as it is, I was concerned. However, Jeremy and VFA made it pretty simple with their pay plan. Having made the financial decision I looked forward to the Master Class with Eric Hunt. Sure am glad I did! Eric was fantastic as a teacher/coach/facilitator. The class was great fun and filled with great information. The recording of the demo session was a piece of cake because of Eric and the detailed effort he put into the studio work. Voices For All has proven their commitment to me as a voice actor and I know that I can rely on them for support, encouragement, and suggestions as I move forward in the art and career of voiceover acting. THANK YOU, ERIC AND THE STAFF OF VFA!

If you're reading this, you're more than likely, trying to make the decision to take the VFA classes. My advice to you: DO IT! Stop thinking about it and DO IT! You are in great hands with the people at the home office and the coaches out in the field. I took the intro class and met Mike Elmore. A couple of days later I got a call from VFA inviting me to the Master Class. I'm telling you, it was the best thing I have ever done. Look, they have a vested interest in having you succeed. On top of that, even after the classes end, they are still there to help you in whatever you need to become a success. These people are pros. They know whether you have THAT skill or not. The Masters Class takes you step by step on how to do everything. From how to read a script to getting paid for reading that script. It's all there. Business plan, marketing, demos, recording, all of the how to's you need. What's great? If you have more questions down the road there is always someone there to help you out. I took my Master Class in Dec. of 2010, it is now Sept. of 2011. It took me a while to get everything in place, but I can happily say I'm busy, having a lot of fun and making a decent living doing it! Mike Elmore has been the biggest help through all of this as I'm sure your coach will be too. If it wasn't for him I would not be writing this today. His patience and direction gave me the confidence I needed, when I needed it. In the last 3 months, I've booked jobs from Kobalt Tools to Ford Explorer, Movie Trailers, Radio ads, Product demos, Corporate identities and a lot more. Look, they can show you how to be successful, but it's up to you. Like anything else, the more you put in to it, the more you're going to get out of it. Thank you VFA and a big THANK YOU to Mike Elmore extraordinaire. DO IT, I'm telling you, just DO IT!

Matt M. - WA



As of today, (just two days after taking the Master Class) everything I've done in regards to Voices For All has been great. However, I am really looking forward to the time when I can share good new pertaining to my success as a voice actress.

Elsie S. - NY



I attended the VFA Master Class in Chicago this past April. The class was a diverse group that had the expert guidance of Mike Elmore for the entire weekend. I cannot find enough adjectives in the English language to express how great the entire experience was for my future in voice acting. Mike filled every second with details and information to provide each of us the tools to be successful in this venture. Yet, I remember feeling that he took the time to encourage and enlighten each individual with specifics for them in particular. The most important aspect of the weekend for me was the final day when Mike reminded us it was a process. I took that important point to make sure my future was well planned, marketed, and set up for enjoyment of the whole process. THANK YOU Mike and all the wonderful people at VFA for opening the door that is leading me to my future success as a voiceover artist. Please look for my company - ODIII Productions ( Voiceovers by Oren Pomeroy ).

It's only been about 2 months since the masters class and I'm still learning from VFA. The class was great, very comprehensive and Eric does a great job of getting you ready for this world and excited about it. I have my studio up and running. Courtney is a super teacher and has been so patient with my questions and concerns. I can't believe how much I know and have learned since then. I would be in tears if it weren't for VFA. They mean what they say when you have their support. It is money well spent. If you are thinking of becoming a voice over artist, don't do it without VFA!

VFA provided great instruction and workbook for the 3 day Masters Class. They also provide a page of resources and tips, including setting up a Pro Tools studio at home. I wished we had more time to hear ourselves recorded before we went in to record the professional demos, but there just wasn't enough time. The workshop was full of exercises and instructions. Even after the class was over, VFA will check back with you to see how things are going and provide a lot more advice and information when you are ready to hear it.

Andy K. - MN



It's been almost a year since I attended the VFA Masters Class in Los Angeles with Eric Hunt. I look back and enjoy the time of instruction and interaction with my classmates. I want to encourage and remind everyone that this is a JOURNEY...not a path to instant overnight success! Keep that thought in mind as you embark on this adventure in your life. There will be bumps along the way...but with Andrea, Courtney and the rest of the VFA team, you will be in good hands! :)

SUCCESS UPDATE: I was speaking with an attorney, who was helping me with some legal issues, and told him I was working on getting voiceover work.  He said he knew the CEO of an agency in San Francisco and wrote an email introduction to her about me.   I then filed my headshot, VO demo and resume.  Was called to do an audition - which I felt I had blown, but apparently had not.  So don't judge yourself, we are usually our own worst critics!  Then called in last week for an interview and contract.

This agency was founded 25 years ago by an actress and now employees her son and daughter.  They have film and voice over studios in their offices.  They are a respected agency in the SF bay area.  I hope to get some acting and/or VO work with them and will keep you posted as to what I do land.  It is difficult to get picked up by any agency in the area so - it's all about relationships!! 


My experience with my VFA class was wonderful.  I received more direction and guidance that I have in any other performance class I have taken.  Eric knew how to draw out of me the best that I could give with his patience and clear explicit instructions and guidance.  The taping of the demo was a great experience and best of all, FUN!  I am so glad I took this class and have greatly benefited from it.  I am looking forward to taking the character development class in the near future.  Please continue to keep giving classes and supporting us, Voices for All.

Many thanks for all your efforts before, during and after class. Due to surgery, am very late in getting back to you with my appreciation. I am now back up and running and anxious to put to work my newfound knowledge to work. You are a great team! Thank you so very much!

Patricia L. - PA



I really enjoyed the master class and staff, they were very supportive and encouraging, would recommend this class for anyone who is serious about voiceover aspiration.

SUCCESS UPDATE: It's been an exciting year for me as I have launched my home voiceover recording services business.   After taking the VFA Masters Class this past summer, I started to lay the ground work for my home business.  I made some major acoustic improvements to my home studio, established a DBA, and launched my business website (link).  I have attended a few local Chamber of Commerce meetings where I have established a few promising connections who are interested in partering with me.  For example, someone who has a video production company, but often seeks voiceover talent to complement his video content. I also joined Voices.com and was awarded my first job.  It was a simple, corporate outgoing phone message.  I've been getting a lot of experience there with the audition process. 

2011 was very foundational for me and I expect to grow this as we head into 2012.   Thanks to the VFA team for the support with this new phase of my life.

 


I've had a passion for Radio/TV and audio recording ever since I was old enough to hold a microphone. But for much of my life, it remained only a hobby of mine because I never knew how to make a go of it in the business. After attending the VFA intro class at a community college earlier this year, I was convinced that I had to take it one step further. So I enrolled in the VFA Masters class that was offered in Chicago this summer. It was an amazing experience! It was a fast-paced, challenging, and rewarding weekend. Eric Hunt was an amazing coach and he brought the best out of every member of the class. The in-class exercises were fun and invigorating and by the time the weekend was over, I was ready for the demo recording session. I was extremely happy with the end product of my demos. I feel like I have the tools, the support, and a solid foundation upon which to build my VO recording business. Thank you VFA!

SUCCESS UPDATE: My podcast is www.wellsaidvoiceover.com.  Just really playing with it right now, but plan on expanding soon.  I am getting ready to record a children's book and will soon be doing telephone messages for a new company the first of the year as well as many voiceover commercials for them.  Am really excited about the future and as I told you, I give you great credit for helping me get my studio up and running.  I really appreciate all you did for me.  


I just recently completed the Master Voice Over class in Chicago, IL. Our instructor was Eric Hunt. It was INCREDIBLE! I am definitely a "newbie" so I was not sure what to expect. It was just sooo informational and the steps 1,2.3 on how to get into the Voice Over business. I am very excited to get started! I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in diving into the Voice Over Business. The studo time to produce the demos was so interesting to see how the whole process works. You just have to experience it yourself to believe it. Come On In The Water Is FINE! 

Loretta T. - IL



Wow! A great weekend! Eric Hunt was a phenomenal instructor and kept our interest all weekend. In addition, he is excellent at identifying students' strengths and coaching them up based on those strengths. He did a great job in directing my recording seesion, too. You'll get a strong start to your new career through the Master Class!

Rick T. - OH



SO MUCH FUN!! Every gardener knows that when she is away for a weekend things grow at an accelerated pace. Well, this weekend was a wonderful growing experience for me. Eric Hunt was the water and sunshine, conveying his knowledge and experience in lively manner, and keeping all engaged. His suggestions and encouragement gave me the confidence to put the butterflies to flight and own my voice. VFA delivers the necessary tools and support. For anyone pursuing a career in voice acting I recommend the Voices For All Masters Class. Looking forward to a great harvest!

Carolle W. - MI



Voices for All was an amazing experience. I had to wait 3 years to partake in the intense workshop, but it was worth the wait and I don't regret any of it. You connect with the coaches and you can see that they really want you to succeed. My coach was Andrea and she was extremely passionate and patient-- very helpful, and Courtney, involved in operations, is the extra cushion for guidance. They will always be there for you and give you the support you need.

SUCCESS UPDATE: I recorded my first paying job yesterday.  What a rush!  It was an internal sales video for a company out of Chicago.  They sent me the script early and how I envisioned doing it was completely different from what they wanted.  I recorded it with a phone patch and it sure was odd, recording while their creative guy was talking in my ear - but, after editing, it sounded pretty good (at least that's what he told me).  Thank you for all your help - it sure got rid of some of the butterflies.  But the best part - My career's underway!

Taking the "Creating Characters" and "Audio Books" Advanced Classes earlier this month was one of the best investments I could have made for my voiceover career. Coaching by Leah and Eric was excellent, and I thought I had my money's worth before the first break. Not only were we provided with nuts and bolts information to make recording easier, both technically and artistically, they gave everyone in the classes individual help along with related resources I doubt most of us could find on our own. The advice we received was specific and realistic; the support unbelievable. One Master Class is an excellent beginning, but it's really just the beginning. I came home jazzed and more efficient in my recording. Can't wait to do more!

Don Lafontaine, please step aside! My voice acting hero is Eric Hunt. He comes straight out of the top drawer. In God’s creation I never could understand the talent portion. If talent were peanut butter, why couldn’t it be like Skippy that spreads evenly over all the “bread” so that each part gets a reasonable amount? Instead God’s distribution of talent is more like trying to spread the old fashioned kind that tends to clump up so that one portion of the bread receives all the peanut butter. It seems like Eric Hunt has received all the talent. Throughout the class we were able to appreciate the many sides of this humble and very real young man. He is an actor, voiceover artist and excellent communicator being able to command the attention of learners (some of us not so young) for many hours. But what makes him especially impressive is his dedication to his craft. He is thoroughly knowledgeable and fully equipped to teach and pass on to others who will pursue work in the voiceover industry and benefit from his wisdom and experience. I appreciated his encouragement, commendations, gentle corrections, and suggestions. He remained engaged and interested in each one of his students. I so appreciate the volume of work that he accomplished in the three short days we spent with him. I would also like to appreciate other kind and valuable members of the VFA staff: Bob Puthoff who initially ignited excitement during the introductory class, Sherrill Stewart who was so encouraging and empathetic (What a dear!), Casey Rose who understood my financial circumstances and arranged VFA compensation that would fit my budget (What a Godsend!) and finally, Courtney whom I have not spoken to but plan to make her my best friend since I need lots and lots of help. Hats off to all VFA staff!

The VFA was the most organized and lively workshop (in any field) that I have ever attended. There wasn't a wasted minute and yet the pressure was not overwhelming nor the mood comprised by a hurried atmosphere. What impressed me the most was the honest and supportive criticism to everyone. There was no play to favorites among the group. On the one hand, everyone's performance was accepted; on the other hand everyone was enabled to improve their performance. So deft were the instructor's remarks that the participants were eager to try again and again to more satisfy a masterful reading. Finally, we had an enjoyable time. Because I stayed at a friend's house in Clifton Park, I wasn't present for much of the fraternizing and yet I feel bonded with the other participants. I greatly appreciated the experience.

I recently finished the Master Class for VFA and enjoyed it so much! Eric Hunt, our teacher and coach, made the class so exciting and fun. Thank you Eric for be such a great coach while recording my first demo! It was remarkable!!! You are awesome. I really enjoyed it. I feel I have a well-rounded knowledge now to go forward into the voiceover industry and start my own little business as a voice actor! I have learned so much so quickly! I am impressed by the workbook and the lessons, coaching and teachings VFA uses in this class. All of my questions were answered. It is a very thorough presentation and instruction. The class was well worth taking if someone wants to learn about the voiceover industry. I can hardly wait to get my home studio set up and running! What a fun way to earn money! I am looking forward to my new adventure! Thank you VFA!

The Voices For All Master Class was different than I pictured but all that I hoped it would be. Andrea was professional, entertaining and informative. She patiently coached and coaxed the best out of each of us. If I never make a dime in the voice over industry I would still consider this class a good investment. The company's and Andrea's interest in each of our success was obvious and the response remains quick, friendly and supportive. If this is your dream this class should be your next stop.
