Come learn from top names in the voiceover industry with MdM Talent’s exclusive Voiceover Workshops and Industry Panel! The three LA-based voiceover guest-artists are some of the most sought-after talent, teachers, and coaches in their industry: Debi Derryberry, Daniel Ross, and David Sobolov. They have voiced iconic roles such as JIMMY NEUTRON in “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius,” DONALD DUCK in Disney’s “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” LUCKY for Lucky Charms, the role of DRAX THE DESTROYER in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, GORILLA GRODD in CW’s “The Flash,” and hundreds of other animated series, films, radio and TV commercials, video games, and live action features.
The Friday night Industry Panel from 6:30-8:30pm will be moderated by Justin Timpane and will involve the artists in a discussion about their lives and careers, then will open up to questions from the audience. Afterward, guests will be able to circulate to each of the artists stationed around our event space and will have the opportunity for signatures, pictures, book purchasing and signings, etc.

Each workshop will be limited to 30 participants, divided into 3 groups of no more than 10 participants each. These groups will circulate to 3 different classes with each voiceover artist over the course of 3 hours. This will afford them the opportunity to experience a wide variety of techniques and topics from three different experts who are highly regarded in their field. The final 30 minutes will conclude with a Q&A with all 3 guest artists and will focus on the voiceover industry and other useful advice for aspiring voiceover talent. (For the youth workshop, parents are invited to participate in the last 30 minute Q&A Session.) *PLEASE NOTE* – Some prior acting/performing experience is requested as this workshop is geared toward those interested in expanding their acting skills and possibly pursuing a path in the voiceover industry.
