VOICE ACTOR BOOT CAMP!

Bang Zoom! Entertainment is one of the most well-known and prolific 
anime studios in all of North America. For the first time, they are 
holding a very unique opportunity for voice actors. Future voice 
actors and anime fans will have the opportunity to show off their 
talent and learn ways to improve their skills from two of their 
favorite voice actors.

Sandy Fox and Lex Lang will be instructing an all-day event for 
students of voice acting. Previously, this workshop has been 
conducted at anime conventions, and has proven to be so unbelievably 
popular that Bang Zoom! Entertainment has decided to create a truly 
original session completely dedicated to the teaching of voice acting.

Voice Actor Boot Camp will include techniques to help future voice 
actors in the anime field as well as original animation and many 
other categories. Not only will future voice actors learn all about 
performing a voice over, but Sandy and Lex will personally teach them 
how to record an excellent demo, nail an audition, and find a great 
agent!
