Creating Voice Characters

This workshop is $75. This workshop has limited spots available. Right now, I have it set to 20 people MAX! This may change. What I will be doing with this workshop is renting out a professional recording studio. This is part of the reason for the price jump. The other reason? I want to make sure everyone who claims one of the 20 available slots will show up. I don’t want someone to say “I’ll be there!” Then come the day, they don’t show up, while another person who really wanted to be there missed out on a spot they could have had. So the price is part studio time, part I want committed people.

committed people.
