Welcome to the lab. I’m Jodina professional voice over artist, on camera talent and media coach. Classes for voice over are forming now. I mentioned to a friend of mine that I was going to be teaching a voice over class. She laughed and said “teaching voice over.. funny. You just need to be able to read to do voice over”. This is an educated woman , who runs her own company . I was dumbfounded that someone who has know me for years and very familiar with my work would think voice over was simply reading a script.
