The Intro Workshop with JP was excellent. I got what I wanted out of the workshop, which was to assess whether voice over work would be something I might enjoy doing, and to get a realistic evaluation of my skills. The group size was just right too. We got a good wide-ranging overview of the voice over industry, which gave us good jumping off points for further investigation. JP was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and made us feel at ease very quickly. Highly recommended.

My Intro to Voice Over Workshop at The Showreel was an eye-opener, in every positive way. JP took us on a Cook’s tour of the voice-over world, urging us to view it realistically, then gave us our first script. Amazing how many differing deliveries of it the group produced! Amazing too to hear my own recording and to get JP’s guidance on how to improve it. The second attempt was better. More scripts in the afternoon and more improvement, with lots more good advice. Throughout, JP was friendly, witty, idiosyncratic and interesting, and treated us all as if we had a possible career ahead of us. JP’s appraisal of my efforts arrived within 24 hours – frank, realistic, positive and very helpful. An excellent workshop! I really feel I have taken my first step on the road to voice-over. Thank you, The Showreel. Thank you, JP.

I did my drama voice reel with Mike. Mike had obviously thought about each piece before I’d arrived and he was already prepared with some suggestions for musical settings and sound effects, which I had not been expecting. Mike has a strong musical instinct for what is going to work and a massive library at his fingertips. I appreciated how he listened and how he engaged with what I was trying to achieve. It felt like a collaboration and he was both patient and a perfectionist. While I am really looking forward to the final edit, I was delighted with the experience, and I look forward to returning for my next project.
