Broadcast Storytelling

4-session course via webinar

with Thom Pinto

An advanced four-session workshop devoted to the world of in-show narration for documentaries, docu-series, reality series, and special television events.

Tuesdays, August 1, 8, 15, 22
7:00-10:00 pm ET
via Webinar

Session 1: Discovering Your Narration Niche

Which networks are best suited to your vocal style and energy? What commercial or promo traits need to be avoided when working in this area of VO? We’ll break down the most common formats for documentaries, and the expanding reality-series market.

Session 2: Visualization and Phrasing

Learn how to get a sense of the video – even when no details are offered. Develop the specific narrator rhythm and tone needed for each project. This is about not relying on a standard PBS delivery or using your corporate narrative approach.

Session 3: Audition vs. The Session

Learn techniques that will make your audition more memorable, but remain within the specs of the show and network. Also, once you’ve booked the job, discover what to expect during the typical two-hour session, and how to be a real partner in the process.

Session 4: Mock Audition Drills

Copy that is definitely in your zone will be provided to put your new skills to the test. After the critiques, we’ll have an open discussion about marketing yourself in this genre of voice-over.
