One-on-one voice-over coaching sessions are naturally tailored to each student. Ellie approaches every person uniquely, taking into consideration their experience as well as their strengths and talents, which may be evident, disclosed up front, or discovered during the course of the session work. Ellie teaches how to break down a script, connect to copy, and personalize material. She also helps with relaxation and breathing, physicality, and microphone and booth technique.
Ellie has over a thousand different voice-over scripts available and selects voice-over material that best suits one’s given background, abilities, and interests. She also works with students who wish to bring in other material or create their own. Ultimately, they work collaboratively to find what genres (audio books, movie trailers, animation and character work, etc.) are best suited to the student in the marketplace.
Students may choose to do their sessions online (via Hangouts, FaceTime, or Skype) or over the phone for the same rate. Ellie charges a slightly higher rate for in-person sessions to cover costs for studio space and travel. Each coaching session is one hour in length.
