Those attending all day Premium Showcase Events (All 4 Sessions) May use the same materials in different sessions, if preferred.

 

Format: All showcase sessions will audition live in “real-time” only.  There will be no pre-recorded audition materials needed*.  Each Showcase will invite talent into the Zoom room to observe for the entire session.  Each talent will perform materials, receive immediate feedback/adjustments/possible re-do with guest, and have an opportunity to ask a question. We will be outlining the expectation for each session for you, whether you are to bring prepared materials or be giving cold materials. This will be a full day and a very busy one. You will be working with about a dozen guests throughout the day. Start getting your ducks in a row by getting back into coaching if you have yet to do so already (online/phone) and gathering all materials for on-line (no hard copies necessary).
Also, update your VIP Talent Profiles sooner rather than later. If your wi-fi is spotty or your device is older, please figure that out NOW so you can deliver smooth auditions without technical difficulties. This is imperative as a working professional.  We will of course help you with everything in preparation.

Testimonials:

“I met Lau in 2010 while searching for a new coach to advise me on updating my voice-over demo. We connected from the moment we first spoke…Her warmth, sincerity, humor and passion for the fields of voice-over and acting oozed through the phone lines. What began as my proposed few sessions turned into a 2-year long holistic exploration into myself as a voice-over artist and a human being. Incorporating private voice-over coaching sessions, acting classes, singing lessons and numerous Boston & New York-based voice-over workshops, Lau inspired me, encouraged me, helped me refine my skills, introduced me to a community of voice-over colleagues, and kept me laughing throughout the journey. Lau is truly a one-woman dynamo and a valuable asset to the voice-over community.”
-Catherine Iagnemma, Voice Over Talent

“As a voice-over talent who occasionally has a need to hire other voice-over talent, I have utilized Lau Lapides Company often over the last couple of years. 

Lau has sent me demos for many voice-over actors from which I can choose when I have need for alternate voices to record various eLearning projects which in turn has helped me grow my own voice-over business. Her excellent coaching of her voice-acting students is highly apparent in the skills I’ve observed in them, and her genuine caring for her students is palpable in every communication Lau and I have shared. She is a wonderful resource for her talent, for me, and for the acting community at large. She has great energy and integrity, and I highly recommend her services!”
-Jill Goldman, Voice Over Talent

“Working with Lau, I was able to break through a wall that was keeping me from moving forward with voice over acting. I would record something, then listen to it and I would hear a “dead” voice. Not the voice of a human being. Not the voice of someone who should be listened to. Lau was able to guide me to a place where I was able to visualize and sink myself into a real situation, allowing me to wring humanity out of the words in front of me. She’s also been an amazing guide through the BUSINESS of voice over. I intend to continue working with Lau until… hmm… I don’t know why I would ever stop.”
-Eric Fox, Voice Over Talent

“Lau Lapides Company is truly a remarkable establishment!! I can say that because I’ve spent and worked closely with the president of the company Lau Lapides and Mike “The Mic” Jablon, Technical Director. On various projects from New York showcase intensive, to coaching aspiring, and experienced v/o talent, and actors. What can clients—new, and familiar—encounter when attending the lau lapides company? They can expect the absolute best personal, professional, and exhilarating exchange a person can hope to have with a company. The attention to detail that the company provides is exceptional with over 30+ years of coaching, acting, and technical training under the belt. You will have a phenomenal one on one training session from working with Lau, Mike the wonderful staff, and very talented interns. When you come to the lau lapides company, it will feel like HOME!!!!”
-A.J. Cawley, Creative Team Member @ Bnn Studios, OWC Network

“Lau is a delight. Her energy and passion are evident from the movement you meet her. Her bubbly and energetic personality engages and motivates the client the moment they step through the door. Additionally, Lau had years of experience in the industry and possesses the unique ability to tailor her coaching to her client’s needs. With her terrific audio engineer, Mike Jablon, she will help you get started in the industry or hone your skills to get that next v/o job. Even if you can’t make it into the studio, Lau will Skype or Facetime or do whatever to make sure you get your coaching session. That’s commitment! Another great thing about Lau and her company are their numerous industry connections (that are continuing to grow daily) and her instance on getting her clients to showcases, auditions and industry events in front of casting directors. If your work with the Lau Lapides Company you will not be disappointed!”
