Your audio resume! This piece is essential to working in voice acting. Rachel will choose your best recorded material from our sessions. These recordings are then combined to create one or two voice acting demos (depending on the rate the coaching sessions progress). They will be edited and mixed with other sound elements such as music for your use.
You should start out with at least two demos since commercial work is only a small portion of the types of voice jobs you can do. There are also jobs working as a narrator, doing corporate voice over work, audiobooks, eLearning voice over and other types of work.
Studio Set Up Help
While all home studios are different, Rachel is available to help provide you with ideas & suggestions about how to set up your own recording studio. So, you can be a part of the professional voice over world!
They Say What About Voice Acting Coach Rachel Alena?
Before working with Rachel, I had zero experience in Voice Over work– and to be honest, it showed. Rachel taught me everything I know about the industry. I learned about voice anatomy, voice care, voice exercises, recording equipment and software, how to set up my home studio, talent agencies, remote/online working opportunities, and all the nitty gritty voice details that make a Voice Over Talent stand out and hirable. Shortly after creating my Voice Over demos with Rachel, I got picked up for representation by a talent agency. She is just as talented of a teacher as she is a Voice Over Artist. Rachel helped me reach my Voice Over goals and beyond!” ~Molly Arenberg
Thank you!! You do such a great job! You have so much guidance and knowledge to share.” ~Emily Rushing, Big Fish Talent, Denver Colorado
How it happened…
Rachel had been a working voice over actor for over 20 years when Denver talent agency Big Fish Talent asked her to give a workshop. Why? Because, folks were asking the ladies at Big Fish if they could recommend a voice acting coach. Students wanted to know things like, ‘how do I become a voice over talent?’ ‘How do I get into voice acting?” Who hires voice actors?’ ‘Do I have a good voice for that type of work?’ So, Rachel gave her first workshop. From there on out, voice over students started coming for coaching. Then, as they referred more students to her, Rachel realized how much she loved watching people grow and use their voice!
Rachel now provides private voice over training as a voice acting coach for folks both in state and out-of-state from of her Louisville, Colorado voice acting studio, Big Bite Studio. Whether you are an actor who is looking to get into doing voice over recording or someone who just wants to express themselves using your voice, Rachel is available. Find your voice! Get into the world of voiceovers! And/or improve on your already established professional voice over career! As your coach, Rachel’s goal is to prepare you to be in the real world as a voice actor.
