The Network Austin Mixer extends our deepest thanks to our Guest Speakers on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, at our first (and maybe annual… from the turnout) Panel of Voiceover Professionals. We were very fortunate to have Debora Duckett, owner of dB Talent, Liz Atherton, owner of The Atherton Group, aka TAG Talent, and Mj Vandivier, voice coach at The Actor’s School (formerly known as the State Theater School of Acting) share their wisdom and insights about voiceover work. Attendance was superb and audience questions were addressed with precision and clarity by our first panel of voiceover professionals! We thank you 3 for offering your time and informing us about the details involving this line of work.
Note: Baby A’s will place pylons on parking spaces reserved for our panelists behind the restaurant. Please do not park in those reserved spots!
