Julie Williams Proven Voice-Over Techniques Workshop Review
I had the pleasure of attending Julie Williams’s workshop this past weekend. With only three of us, Julie graciously opened her home, making it a more intimate, personal experience.
Julie teaches how to develop your own navigator, to stay in the moment and add depth to your reads. With a 1-2-3 approach. covering how to refine your skills and develop your voice, creating a new demo or improving on an existing one, and the fine art of marketing yourself, Julie walked us through each step with plenty of individual attention.
Julie teaches one technique at a time and each step builds upon the next. Starting out with coloring words, an effective way to enable your listener to “see” what your saying instead of just hearing the words, she moves to proper techniques of inflections, pausing, using half voice and pacing in a natural and spontaneous rhythm. Julie had my attention the entire time and her methods enriched my reads every step of the way.
Her procedures work. Plain and simple.
And of course that all important…Practice. Julie stresses the importance of practice, especially as a new talent and explains that a musician doesn’t become great taking lessons but during the time between lessons…practicing.
Thank you, Julie... for the tools!…. to practice with.
