One of the most exciting and competitive fields in radio and TV is voice over, but just having a great voice is not enough; you need the skills to be able to use it properly. Our Voice Over Fundamentals course will help you discover the correct techniques to make the most of your voice and get started in the industry. Held in our studios over two days, learn from our expert practitioners who share their industry experience and insights in voice over and broadcast. Courses start Saturday, 2 December or Monday, 18 December. 

Also starting Saturday, 2 December is the Assistant Directing Fundamentals short course, the only Assistant Director’s course in Australia approved by the Australian Director’s Guild. From pre-production and scheduling to workflow management and OH&S, learn about the roles and responsibilities of a 1st AD and the challenges of coordinating a film set. Gain first-hand insights from experienced assistant director, Liam Branagan, and take your on-set skills and experience to the next level.
