WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
Since we launched GFTB V3 back in December '16, we have created and released an absolutely crazy amount of content that is instantly available to our members as soon as it's uploaded.
Below is our list of all of the new content that we've released since V3's launch, just to give out an idea of the value involved in the GFTB Membership:
Recording your own voiceover clips & reels or building your own demo reels is the way of the industry now, so we felt that there needed to be an extra addition to our audio recording specific collection of courses.
Often overlooked, compression is a serious tool in the recording process that, if done incorrectly, can destroy the overall quality and impact of your clips. This mini-course of compression will see that you don't make any mistakes in the final steps of the recordings that get you work!
The commercial sector of the voiceover industry is the most highly paid, and consequently the sector that everyone wants to be in.
Our very own Peter Dickson has voiced over 30,000 commercials and takes you on a journey through this wonderful area of our voiceover world.
Who better to guide you through a full course detailing the best practices and skills used by the pros you hear everyday!
The aim of this course is to arm VOs with business skills that will give them success within the specific context of the voiceover industry.
It's all about getting your marketing right and creating a personal brand, building a network of clients and retaining them, getting work consistently, managing your finances and measuring your success.
