Special Guest: Susan Farlik 6 - 8 p.m. Monday, February 28 KMRC One East Erie, Suite 660 Have you ever thought that you might like to try doing voiceovers for radio and TV? Susan Farlik, a top Chicago voice over agent with Grossman & Jack Talent, will reveal all the secrets of the trade. Volunteers will have an opportunity to prepare the copy and record a mock audition with Farlik as their agent. They'll receive expert direction from Farlik and have a chance to incorporate her


feedback into their second read, followed by another evaluation. Radio and TV copy will be available, suitable for every voice type and situation for volunteers to choose from. Everyone will have a chance to ask questions. Even if you don't read, you can certainly benefit from her behind the scenes commentary and from observing the voice over audition process. You must be an AFTRA, SAG or AEA member in good standing to attend. Space is limited. Please RSVP to Latisha at lwagner@aftra.com or call (312) 573-8081. Park for $10 in the parking structure at 10 East Ontario. Enter on the north side of Ontario between Wabash and State, then take a ticket.

Voice Over Audition Technique - like all AFTRA/SAG Conservatory and KMRC programming - is a benefit of your union membership and offered to all AFTRA and SAG members in good standing.
