This special X Session, created exclusively for VO Atlanta, is a compressed version of Joe’s weekend Promo Master Classes. In this 3 hour session, Joe will present the core teachings of his weekend classes, with the emphasis on getting on mic and performing as much as possible. His learn-by-doing method allows talent to become familiar with the requirements and constraints they’ll face in different types of promo sessions; timing, finding the story, creating the energy and emotion, interpreting the copy and the performance. During the class we will concentrate on the three different types of promo sessions you’ll encounter in your promo career:
1. Reading to Picture – hitting graphics, sots and sfx
2. Tracking with timings, for promos that are cut and roughed, but not available to read to
3. Wild-tracking with “3 in a rows for speed” for promos that have approved copy, but spots have yet to be cut.
By the end of this X Session, attendees will have a full understanding of what’s expected of the voice talent for the common types of promo sessions and have the experience of actually doing it in a real-world situation.
