“I’d always wanted to tr y voice-overs and was pleasantly surprised to find the workshop offered through UNLV Continuing Education. I I first took the Radio & TV Voice-over class in spring of 2010. After the first of my four sessions I was blown away! I had no idea I would be learning from someone with the breadth and depth of experience that the instructor, Alice Whitfield, has to offer.” “I completed my demo reel in July 2010 and began submitting auditions for voice-overs. I now work online and submit auditions for TV, radio, internet, and telephone voice-overs including smart phone apps. It’s a highly competitive field but I’m certain I can hold my own thanks to what I’ve learned in Alice Whitfield’s Radio & TV Voice-over class.” “Because of her mentoring, I can proudly call myself a working voice-over actor.” Sunni Westbrook Voice-Over Artist

Acting, Photo & Film RADIO & TV VOICE-OVER WORKSHOP If radio and TV commercial voice-overs were that easy, more people would be doing them. If you are serious about finding out if you have what it takes to make it in this lucrative and highly competitive industry, this course is for you. Contrary to what you might think, voice-over has very little to do with your voice! It’s being able to read a script and make it sound like you’re not reading. This four-week course is not for the faint of heart. It is conducted and taught exactly the way the business runs in the real world. FYI: There is a huge difference between local and nationals level of voice-over performers. So, to give yourself the best opportunity of competing in any of the voice-over markets (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and all regions in between), it is important to learn the business from someone who is in it on a national level. Your instructor is one of the most sought-after voice-over coaches for many top New York and Hollywood celebrities. She frequently commutes between Las Vegas and Los Angeles to coach stars such as King of Queens co-star Leah Remini, among many others. Her book, Take It From The Top!, is suggested reading for this course.

THE EXPRESSIVE ACTOR, INTEGRATED VOICE MOVEMENT & ACTOR TRAINING Featuring the Lugering Method: the Lugering Method explores the integrated manner in which mental and emotional content are expressed through the body and voice. The goal is an expressive actor capable of a vivid, powerful and artful expression of thought and feeling that is spectacularly human and rarely demonstrated in daily living. Expression is viewed as a highly specialized type of physical action in which energy, orientation, size, progression, flow, direction, speed, weight, control and focus are structured and shaped to reveal the content of our thoughts and feelings. The result is a synthesis of the mind and the body in the sensuous expression of thought and feeling. Whether the actor is working on expressing love or loss, resonance or range, alignment or flexibility, the Principles of Expression have a similar and consistent application. These principles transcend any specific acting style, focusing on universal aspects of human expression present in all drama form Shakespeare to Simon, Wycherley to Wasserstein, Moliere to Mamet.

NEW BIRDING AND NATURAL HISTORY

ALONG THE UPPER MUDDY RIVER VALLEY

The upper Moapa River Valley is a little-visited but ecologically important area of Southern Nevada. Conservation interest in this area has been highlighted by the recent establishment of the Warm Springs Natural Area adjacent to the Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, was established in 1979 as the first National Wildlife Refuge to secure habitat for an endangered fish, the Moapa dace. This small fish is only found in the headwaters of the Muddy River. The Warm Springs Natural Area, owned by the Southern Nevada Water Authority, is home to a wide variety of fish, birds and other species. The 1,218-acre Natural Area provides a habitat for birds such as the southwestern willow flycatcher, yellowbilled cuckoo and vermillion flycatcher. Led by birding expert Scott Page and assisted by SNWA biologist David Syzdek, we will explore, studying the springs, pools, and streams on the refuge, and traversing sections of the natural area looking for migratory and breeding birds. Gain a better understanding of the relationships among land use, hydrology and conservation biology in this interesting area.

Learn to fly fish in the desert? You bet! Fly fishing has been described as a form of stress management, a hobby, an art form, a method of relaxation and exercise, a religious experience, and a disease. Easy to learn, fly fishing has no boundaries and everyone can enjoy its benefits. Anyone who loves the outdoors is a great candidate! This one-day workshop discusses what fly fishing is and how it differs from fishing in general. We will cover equipment, knots, entomology (basic bugs), fishing strategies and a discussion of nearby fishing opportunities.

MATTING & FRAMING BASICS

CREATIVE ORGANIZATION FOR “PILERS”

Learn how to matt and frame your photographs and artwork like a professional. In this half-day workshop, you will matt and frame an image of your choosing and leave with a piece ready for hanging as well as the satisfaction of knowing how to do-it-yourself. Bring a photo or artwork (image should be no larger than 12”X16”) along with a suitable frame and complementary-toned mat board. All other supplies will be provided. Your instructor is a local photographer who has been actively matting and framing artwork for her own exhibits or by commission for the past ten years.

You’ve heard about all the advantages to getting your life, your work and your space organized. You make resolutions to finally get everything in its proper place. Yet the “mess” continues to defy any of your attempts to “clean up.” The problem is not you, the problem is that most of the ways we are told to organize were designed by organizing nuts. Their minds are methodical and organizing comes natural to them. Your mind simply won’t work that way! They tell you to file, your mind wants to pile. They tell you to throw almost everything away, you want to keep everything. Instead, learn how to take control of the mess. Learn techniques that are ideally suited for those who hate filing, who can’t keep one of those fancy organizer notebooks organized. Let’s face it, you hate spending time on this organizing stuff. Your workspace will look better, and you’ll be more efficient without turning into one of those “wound too tight” types.

• The Division of Educational Outreach reserves the right to cancel any class or make any other changes it deems necessary in order to provide students with the best educational experience possible. • Course fees will be refunded in full if it becomes necessary to cancel a course, however, under no circumstances will the amount refunded exceed the amount of the registration fee. The Division of Educational Outreach will not reimburse students for the cost of travel or lodging in the unlikely event that a class is cancelled. Therefore, it is recommended that students traveling to attend classes make travel reservations that are able to be changed, should it become necessary to do so. • The Division of Educational Outreach will make all reasonable attempts to notify students of class cancellations or changes, using e-mail, phone, and fax contact information provided by the student at the time of registration. It is recommended you call 895-3394 a day prior to your class to confirm that the class will meet as scheduled. • We recognize you may occasionally need to cancel a registration. If you wish to receive a refund, we must receive a written statement (e-mail, fax, or postal mail) listing the course name and number, and giving the reason for cancellation. The direct link for the cancellation page is: http://edoutreach.unlv.edu/ continuingeducation/registration/refund_request.html, or it may be faxed to 895-4195. Postal mail refund requests should be sent to Division of Educational Outreach, 4505 S. Maryland Parkway, Box 451019, Las Vegas, NV 89154-1019. • Refunds of registration fees paid by credit card will be processed as a credit to the credit card account within seven business days of the cancellation notification. Refunds of registration fees paid by check will require a minimum of six weeks to be processed, to allow sufficient time for the check issued by the student to clear, prior to a refund check being issued. • Unless a separate policy is stated for a specific class or classes, the following applies to all cancellations and refunds: Prior to the first day of class 100 percent of the fee paid will be refunded minus a $10 administrative fee. If class has begun or concluded, refunds are decided on a case-by-case basis by calling 895-3394. All refunds must be done within 14 days of the last class. All of the provisions of the Class Cancellation and Refund Policy are in accordance with relevant Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) rules and regulations adopted and approved by the NSHE Board of Regents. Payment of Fees • Payment must be received at the time of registration. Students are responsible for the payment of all fees associated with each course in which they enroll within the time period specified by UNLV. • Students who fail to pay fees when due, will be required to pay late fees, and any additional penalties established by UNLV.

Failure to pay applicable fees when due will result in referral to an outside collection agency. • The Division of Educational Outreach cooperates with the Clark County District Attorney’s office to prevent bad check losses. A $25 service fee will be assessed for any check that is returned from the bank for any reason. Post-dated or two party checks will not be accepted. Any returned check shall be made good within ten days after notification to the student, or the student will not be permitted to attend any classes. Professional Credit Upon registering for a professional course (real estate or management) for the purpose of obtaining professional credit hours, please include your Nevada license number. Continuing Education Units Some of the courses in this catalog qualify for CEUs (Continuing Education Units). CEUs are a way of measuring and officially recognizing the time and effort you have put into your education for your job or profession. One CEU is equal to 10 hours of instruction. CEUs do not constitute academic credit. They are maintained by The Office of the Registrar and provide you with a transcript upon request. So, what do you do with a CEU? As you update your credentials, are in line for a transfer, promotion or evaluation of your current position, or want to make a vocational change or explore a new career, the CEUs demonstrate the time, energy and interest you have shown in broadening your horizons. University of Nevada, Las Vegas Alumni UNLV alumni with a baccalaureate or advanced degree are entitled to a 15 percent discount on ONE select class per semester as deemed by the Division of Educational Outreach office.
