AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR FROM THE BEST THE VOICEOVER INDUSTRY HAS TO OFFER
Every day, Mary Lynn Wissner works closely with ad agencies and production companies casting the voices for major campaigns and regional spots; she knows what the trends are and knows what makes certain auditions stand out, and others stop at the slate!
Networks are facing fierce competition in grabbing and maintaining their audience, so the marketing of shows has never been as important as it is now. Jeff is 'in-the-know' when it comes to this and will explain that the voices attached to these networks and shows are crucial in creating these effective marketing campaigns and what producers are listening for.
Helen specialises almost entirely in BBC network trails and promos and finding the right VOs for the job is her speciality.
'Great night at the #DocumentaryVOND event! Caught up with old friends and met some new ones! Thanks @NetworkVO for organising. Lovely walk to station too!' Mark Thomas
