My wife, Rosanne Welch, will be attending a book signing on Thursday, October 13 at 7pm at Book Soup on Sunset Blvd for this book by Janet Wilcox that includes a chunk of scenes from one of her unproduced pilots. There will also be a reading held in New York City.
Rosanne and I met Janet while teaching at UCLA Extension and she asked if Rosanne had any unproduced work she could consider – and ended up really liking the one she sent. So though Rosanne never saw the piece performed on film, she now knows tons of aspiring actors are using her words to polish their craft. Kind of fun.
I have also been a guest speaker on new media and podcasting at Janet’s UCLA Extension Voiceover class for the last 2 years.
Working voice actors, some our friends, will be reading scenes included in the book for a live demonstration of voice acting.
According to Amazon.com “Mastering Monologues and Acting Sides: How to Audition Successfully for Both Traditional and New Media” by Janet Wilcox teaches actors how to audition for anything from webisodes to Shakespeare. Scripts, acting technique tips, and exercises keep a performer toned and ready, while industry experts give advice on how to audition professionally.
