-Creating/Updating VO Demos & Actor Reels
“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
