I am 100% satisfied with the workshop, which turned out to be even better and more interesting than I had expected. The whole atmosphere was great and the workshop was well-organised. You are provided with all the necessary facts and information, regarding how to improve your skills, what your next steps should be. The most important thing is that you get a first-hand experience from a real professional. We were taught the art of script reading and it felt like a real-life work setting of a voice-over artist.
