Every week thousands of hopefuls dream of a career in voice over. With all the stories about the million dollar voices and “easy work, getting paid to talk” it’s obvious there’s plenty of scammer out there willing to take money from anyone with a dream. One company is tackling this problem head on. VOPrep.com is the first and only voiceover company completely committed to making sure neophytes can begin their voiceover career without getting ripped off.
“There are far too many voiceover ‘schools’ that charge inflated fees for very sub-standard education. Students are warehoused thru these programs at a rapid pace without the do-diligence required to make them successful. VOPrep.com will ensure students are well prepared and have all the needed skills and tools to be successful in the industry.” said CEO Adam Goodman.
“We’ve created VOPrep.com to help would-be beginners get an honest look at what it takes to do this professionally via a variety of FREE resources before they spend a dime on training or classes. We want them to understand the hard work, dedication and investment needed to be a success in voiceovers BEFORE they make any investment what-so-ever.” added Dean of Students, Gabrielle Nistico.
The company also strives to be a referral in kind for those in the industry who find there is no place to assist aspiring voice talent to go to, Nistico explains; “Voiceover professionals and voiceover clients are bombarded with questions from beginners on how to get started. Many don’t have a place to send them for quality advice on how to enter this field. We hope that the industry will see VOPrep.com’s â€˜Step 1: free resourcesâ€™ as the perfect place to send these inquiring individuals.”
While VOPrep is designed for the true beginner, the site advances performers straight to step 3 with pre-qualification skills and knowledge already developed. These are performers who have tried to get a career started but continue to find advancement is not happening.
