Edge Studio presents:
A conversation with Hollywood Superagent Dean Panaro
Dean Panaro has guided the careers of dozens of the voice over industry’s best known actors during his 16 years at ICM, DPN and Abrams Artists. Actors like James Arnold Taylor, Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt call Dean a mentor and a friend.
In this candid and unscripted live interview, Graeme Spicer, Managing Director of Edge Studio, will ask Dean the questions we’ve all wanted answered about the life of a Hollywood agent. What attributes in a voice actor do agents seek most? What is the most annoying habit exhibited by actors that make agents crazy? Why do some talented actors fail, and other less talented actors succeed? And what’s with all the work going to celebrities?
This hour will undoubtedly be one of the most entertaining and insightful sessions on the VOICE 2014 program – actionable information for actors of all levels.
2:00 – 3:30pm
13 Smart Ways to Grab More VO Work – including Live One-on-One Coaching from the Stage!
David Goldberg, CEO of Edge Studio, distills two decades of casting and coaching experience into a single 90 minute action-packed session!
Successful voice actors flourish when they translate their natural strengths into an “ownable” distinct style, rather than competing for jobs better suited to other actors. David helps you identify your strengths, and then explains in actionable terms how to market those strengths.
David will then will spend 60 minutes working one-on-one with volunteers from the audience to help them assess their distinct voice over style; and to help everyone in the audience to ‘train their ears’ to help deliver their best auditions, candidly assess their demos, and please their clients!
David’s presentations and live coaching sessions are always amongst the most popular sessions at voice over events – be sure and get there early for a good seat and for the opportunity to volunteer to read for David live on stage!
