Demos by Melanie and her creative team
By approval ONLY
A voiceover demo is one of the most important tools a voice actor has to work with in their career. For this reason, it's important that your voiceover demo is of the very best quality it can be, professionally produced and focused on showcasing your strengths and appealing to your target market(s). We're happy to guide you through the entire demo production process and produce a voiceover demo that not only meets industry standard but also highlights YOUR strengths as an actor to use in your professional voiceover endeavors.
Voiceover demo production with LTM begins with a Voiceover Demo Assessment (included for FREE as part of our eight-week Commercial Foundations training program). In this assessment, you will record a selection of voiceover copy for us, which we will then review, along with other information we will have you provide. We will use this to provide specific feedback and determine whether it is appropriate for you to commit to producing a demo, or recommend an appropriate alternative course of action so you can take your next steps immediately either way.
Once you've been approved we'll get to work on your demo, which includes the following services:
You'll come out of the process with a fully-produced, professional-grade voiceover demo, to use to market yourself and your abilities to potential clients, representation and more!
As indicated, voiceover demo production is currently open only to LTM students with prior approval only. In other words: You MUST be working regularly with an LTM coach, and that coach AND Melanie must specifically approve you, in order to be eligible to create a demo with LTM. A demo should NOT be the first step in your career; it should come only once you are ready to work professionally and competitively in the NYC voiceover market, and your work on-mic reflects that. If you're a bit earlier on in your career and would like to improve your on-mic skills, learn how to use your demo and market yourself most effectively, please join us for one of our upcoming classes or sign up for a session with one of our awesome coaches.
